Brayden's gone

We have one less in the house now. Brayden decided he wanted to go to Vancouver, WA for his birthday present. He gathered up all his money from grandparents and us and change from the couches and got himself a plane ticket. He will be there for 12 days. Almost 15 and almost on his own. That kid really is mature for his age. I just wish I was going with him so I could go and play with all my friends. He is going to try to visit our old house and see how it has changed with the new tenants. That should be fun to see.
Since I have been practicing my lines for the play I'm having a hard time letting go of the accent and speaking sayin' ain't and y'all and git..and all that. I am becomin' a real hick. But it sure is fun messin' with my kids and talkin' like shore is!
Jason is going to Indiana next week for his 5th and final job interview. They are so worried about this property that they are taking extreme measures to make sure they put the right man in the position. They told him the job is his if all pans out. It's just the waiting and watching the bills pile up and pass the due dates. There is a light at the end of the's just that the path is bumpy and will mess with our credit score...blah. But all in good time and we know the Lord still loves us and all will be well in the end.

Guess What???

I was just casted as "Annie" in the play "Annie Get your Gun". I can't believe they gave me the lead. I've been in tons of plays but I've never been the lead in anything. It took me 39 years but I finally got there. Tonight we get our scripts and meet everyone in the cast. I hope I can pull this off. The performance will be the first couple weeks in November. This is a huge thing. Here in Heber we have what is called Cowboy Poetry. I know it sounds weird but here it really a fun thing. That's why they chose "Annie Get your Gun" to keep with the theme. I am a little overwhelmed. The part I am excited about is that Annie is very un-cultured and I feel I play that part quite well in my own that part will be easy to "pretend". The songs are really fun too. Pray for me so that my mind will be able to memorize and hold it all.
