A Full Plate

Hello..Let me introduce myself.  I'm the person who is supposed to be posting on this blog.   Let me tell you life has gotten crazy!  I mentioned the Cedar Creek store (which is actually in Mabank) getting a new space, well I have been traveling down there every week to help out with getting th store ready for the grand re-opening.  I'll try to take pics and post them (snicker).

Also, the oldest child is graduationg high school next weekend.  I know I'm going to blubber like an idiot and I'm totally dreading it.  He's headed off to college in the fall, and I will probably be a total mess.  You would think that I would be used to it by now since the child is never ever home anymore.  Plus, he has finally admitted to a girlfriend...and she's real, I actually met her.

All the family is coming in for the graduation and it should be complete and total chaos.  Maybe I should take a few days off to recuperate.  I need that anyway, I've been working 60+ hours as it is.  I absolutely love my job though, I never thought working at Goodwill would be so fun.  Everyday is a new adventure and even though some days are spent chasing my tail, it's never dull.  When it gets particularly crazy and I'm about to lose every shred of sanity, I just remind myself of the people I have met that Goodwill helps.  I know it sounds like I'm on a soapbox, but there are people out there who have turned their lives around with the help of Goodwill.

I've set my sights on a new building for my little store.  There aren't any suitable buildings in little 'ol Mineola so I'm making my pitch for a newly built store.  I've got a good chance as long as I keep sales up.  This month my store is #2 in sales, not too shabby.  I'm gunning for #1 next month.  I even found an awesome piece of property along the main highway in Mineola.  I can already see the building in my mind, and it's awesome!

I hope everyone has a great Memorial day!

It is irrational to desire immortality?

- Could a belief in immortality affect an individual’s character?

- Would an afterlife existence be boring or monotonous?

- Does death provide a meaning to life?

- Can we learn about the meaning of life from pondering about immortality?
