Lots of Random things

Well it's been another week that has flown by! We ARE NOT in our new office yet. I think I'll just do my next post when I am sitting at my new desk. Supposedly we are doing it thursday. We'll see...patience is a virtue I struggle with!!!

My classes are reserved and my airline ticket booked...I'm headed off to the "big D" on thursday! I can't wait! I am going to stay with my old roommate and college friend, Jenny. We don't get to see each other but once a year at Follies, so I am so excited! I'll fly out on Thursday and come home on Monday. It's going to be wierd not being with any of the kids, but I know this is going to be so good for me. I just need to get away for a few days, and although I'll be sitting in classes for 3 days, I'm just looking forward to doing something new.

When I get back, I'll study, and then sign up for my test, and then be a licensed loan officer. I can't wait!!!

I have decided to go back to my maiden name. I wouldn't do it if I wasn't starting the job I am, but Nathan and I are essentially in the same field now. He's a real estate appraiser, and I'll be a loan officer. He's made lots of people mad, and I don't want that hurting me. So for professional reasons I'm going back to Gordon. I haven't filed a name change yet. First things first, I am trying to get the divorce filed, then I'll work on that. I didn't want to do it, because of the kids, but right now I just think it's the right decision.

I can't believe that we're approaching the 1st of August! Kyle will be three years old on August 4th!!! He is getting to be such a big boy! He will spend his birthday with his grandparents since I'll be gone, and then we'll have his party when I come back.

Anyways, well I've had other things to talk about, I just haven't had time to sit down and write! Maybe sometime later! That's all for now!

Larissa Gordan has a nice ring to it. She sounds strong and energetic and able to keep making a beautiful life for her little ones. ;)

It also sounds like the name of a professional athlete. Which sport would be your pick?

Glad your getting a little change of pace and especially since you'll get to visit a friend. That's wonderful.

You sound so good and upbeat. Glad things are moving along. I hope you have a wonderful time with your friend. You need some girl time.

Hugs, Lyndy

Have lots of fun in "Big D". Weekends away are great. Something about not being at home to see all the laundry and dishes piling up.

Honey still hasn't quit calling you by your maiden name. Any time I talk about your blog, I have to specify "Larissa Gordon". You would think someone so proud of being a "Lastname" would think it important to remember other people's last names!

Saying some prayers for you while you are away. Let me know when we can get a mudslide again........I have been craving one!
