no... seriously... drumroll please!

Ha! I tried to post from my phone... and it obviously did not work... =) so.....
My
BIG
EXCITING
NEWS IS...........


A BIG PROMOTION!!!
As of the 14th of March, I will be the new STORE MANAGER of SUNGLASS HUT!!!! This is so exciting and scary and wonderful all wrapped up in the same package. It is ALOT more responsibility.... and a few more hours away from home... but it also means MORE MONEY... MORE STABILITY... and the title of course... ;) I will be able to work during the day so that I can be home in the afternoons for important things like homework and kisses at bedtime. Chantel starts Kindergarten in the fall and then I will have all of my kids in school. That means that I will really be spending more time with my kids.... I am so excited!

I feel like this promotion is an answer to prayers, and I feel so blessed that Heavenly Father is looking out for my family. Pay your tithing people... things really will work themselves out. =)
Thanks so much for being patient with me... I hope you all aren't bummed that I am not pregnant or the relief society president... but in my book both of those things would be BIG... but not so much exciting... more like nightmare... ;) I love you all!!!
Pretty please don't post anything on Facebook... there are certain people who still can't know... =) thanks~!

This is so fabulous!!! Congratulations. :) However, I must admit--if you were the new RS Pres., I'd seriously consider coming back to the ward. ;)

JoDee wants to call each manager individually and tell them that she is leaving, so as soon as I get the word from her that everyone knows then I will tell everyone... but it will be anounced to the region by next Wednesday at the latest, so I guess only another week at the longest.

Congrats!! That's exciting news. That will be awesome for you to have more time with your kids. I'm going to have to come in sometime and get me a pair of sunglasses, mine SUCK! Now I should be able to get the family and MANAGER discount.hahaj/k

WAH HOOO!!!! Congrats!!! My friend (Stephanie) used to manage that place and she LOOOVED it. Made good $$$ too. But.. be careful. After managing a few places I can tell you its SO EASY to get sucked in. 40hr work weeks would turn into 60. Im super happy for you and know you'll do great! We should try and do lunch over Easter if you have any time? I'll be down for a while.

I was wondering also if that was what your news was. But it was fun to try and guess. Congrats Lynnette you will do a great job. More time with kids is absolutely priceless. So is the time away from them but it is better to be with them. I can't believe Chantel is that old already. I have nieces and nephews growing up left and right. Good luck on your new promotion.

Brian now has a job down there in St George, but it is hard on us because he stays down there during the week. We are looking to find a place done there somewhere. As long as his job picks up and keeps going good. Not totally official on the moving thing though. Just looking around. If you know of any let us know. At a fairly cheap price. Preferably a foreclosure, those are cheaper. Keep your eyes open.
