Things are Great!

Just a quick update--
Things are great here. I've finished two weeks of work, and I have to say, things couldn't be better. Everyone is very nice, and I've gotten several compliments about my work. Even one of my anchors told me I do a great job. That makes me feel really good.

Another update--guy from the pool called me today--we'll probably go out sometime this week.

other than that, nothing new.

Hope all is well with all of you.

Tennessee Smile

Well, I've been in Tennessee a total of two weeks now, and I have to say, things are going pretty well. I started my job last Monday, and by THursday, I was going solo. I've had three flawless shows, and my boss says he thinks I'm going to fit in just fine there.

My apartment is still not put together. The painters did a horrible job, so they had to come back and paint again. But it's still not acceptable. So, they will be back. On top of that, there's maintenance that still has to be done. But they promise they're working to get it completed.

Yesterday something really cool happened. I was at the pool laying out and the landscaping people were there working on the lawns of the apartment complex. Well, one of them was working around the pool. He stopped a moment to talk to me. Then, he asked me for my phone number! I wonder if he will call. He is really cute!

Oh, and I visited an Assembly of GOd Church last SUnday. and last night, I went to their 20s/30s group. It was a lot of fun--I'll probably stay there! So, I may have found a church, too!

Well, that's about it for now. I will try to update as often as I can. I don't have a computer at home at this time.

I do have to pay tribute to one of the best journalists of my time. I was saddened to hear of the death of Tim Russert. I watched him every Sunday on Meet the Press, and I was always amazed at how fair he could be. He was one of the greats, and he will be missed.

Carolina On My Mind

Well, I have officially left South Carolina, But I will probably always be a Carolina Girl at heart. Greenville is the first place in my life that I ever felt like I was home. Even when I left Gordo, the small Alabama town I grew up in, I didn't feel the sadness I have felt over the last few weeks. I left Greenville yesterday, and as I approached the South Carolina/Georgia line, I had to fight tears, because I so didn't want to leave. But I had to. So, I had a little talk with God--and I told him that my head was telling me to be so angry at Him because I felt like he let me down. I made a home for myself in Greenville. I loved it there. And if things would have been okay with my job, I would have bought a house and stayed forever. But my heart tells me that I just need to trust Him--trust the one who writes my days(as the Barlow Girl song so poetically says). Because maybe I am supposed to be in Chattanooga for this time. Maybe I am going to go there and God is going to really use me. Or maybe I am supposed to go there to find my husband. Who knows? I just pray that I will love it there, and if I don't, God will allow me to go back to Greenville one day. So, as I sit at my mom's house in small town Alabama, I miss Greenville already. But I am trusting God that He will make this move great! I did find a wonderful apartment. It's a one bedroom, loft apartment in East Ridge, a suburb of Chattanooga.So, things are already looking up. Please pray for me that I will find a wonderful church family, and that my job will be great!
