Son/family update

I just want to thank you all so much for all the love and support you have give to my son and my family! My son has had his second session of chemo on Friday and is taking it amazingly well! He is (so far) doing so well that he plans to go to stick with starting back up at college on Monday. He has talked with the college about his health situation and they are so nice and accommodating to him! They r letting him take his classes from home on the Internet. He is feeling so good that he is planning to attend the classes on campus. He is surprised at how well he is feeling this time around. I have got to say that I have a feeling that it has to do with all the prayers and thoughts and positive energies sent his way! He just has this strength and attitude I haven't seen before. He is truly my hero!

Another update: the economy has definitely effected my husbands roofing business and it has been very slow the past few years and has reached an all time low since he started his business 16 years ago. Now that my youngest has started school we have decided that it's time for me to get a job and contribute to the household financially. I applied to a number of places with no call backs or anything. Then I got to thinking that I should work somewhere that would interest me and be a positive way to reenter the working world. I wanted something that would make going to work a happy thing. So--I went to and filled out an application for their new building that hasn't opened yet. I got called back the very next day and had the interview on Friday. I was hired on the spot and I start this weekend! It's awesome cuz I get to see it from start to finish what it's all about with stocking the entire store, assembling shelves, grand opening! I feel like I'm having a new baby...if that makes sense at all. I got a new project to focus on. I am not going to be making much money but I will at least be able to help a little bit with the bills. We are currently having a hurricane and maybe it will bring with it some roofing work. My husband works closely with insurance companies to get insurance to cover costs of roofing disasters.

My baby starts school for first time tomorrow, my sick son starts college tomorrow too, I start job this week too--some good things are happening for us! Thank you all for being here and seeing me through! I will update if anything changes!
