    Thanks Mariner, yes Neiman Marcus too. Yippee! I'm sure FW is a giant tourist trap. My husband is giving a talk to some locals, so I'm sure he'll get some good advice about restaurants.

    Well, I finally got a permanent job! I was out of work from December of last year til early October, when I got a Halloween job at a local costume store (and the best part of it all? Meeting my boyfriend). I've only been out of work a good three weeks now, but I applied at a very well-known clothing retailer and yesterday was my final interview...which I left as the newest employee of the store. I'm getting paid more than I could hope to get elsewhere, plus I am not a seasonal-this is a long-term thing.

    Good for you, Trista. I hope this is a great opportunity for you.
    P.S. I love your avatar. I'd love to stick my tongue out at the world sometimes!!!

    Congrats Trista - I was curious about your mention of a boyfriend in previous posts, and also hoped that your job search would be successful. Your holiday season is starting early!

    I'm finally an auntie!!! I only have one sibling and I'm a few years from having kids, so this is my mom's first grandchild. She's so excited. My brother is a grain farmer and the harvest season was a very poor one this fall, so he only had about 30% of his crop harvested as of a few weeks ago. The weather turned nice and the neighbours and family came out in droves to help bring the crop in. He even got to spend the day in the hospital with his wife and new daughter without worries--the combine kept running without him.

    I can't wait to meet my niece: Caitlin Mona Charlotte!

    Spoose, I can feel your excitment in your post! Congrats Auntie! The neighbours sound like wonderful people, what a nice thing to do.

    Trista, Congrat's on your new job. Sounds like you had a tough year, but you're going out with a bang.
