Home Is Where The Heart Is

This Christmas has been a strange one for me. Working all through the holidays and basically talking on the phone all Christmas day in my room. After talking with all my family I get so home sick, but then soon I realized that there is no home. All of my family was not home for Christmas. I truly understood the meaning of "home is where the heart is". As strange as it all has been I am so grateful for where I am. Where all my family are.

Mike and I played as Mary and Joseph in the live nativity in Duncan. It was wonderful holding that little doll as if it were Jesus Christ. Mike did a great job as Joseph, he has never rubbed my back so much, at the moment I didn't realize it was because his hands were so cold :) I still enjoyed it :)

Happy New Years!

First Day

Today was my first day back at work in a long time. It was a great day learning about a million amazing kitchen tools, dishes, pots, everything. When my co-worker was showing me all the gadgets I was amazed at how easy these gadgets make cooking and how cool they are. When we were half way throw the first wall she asked me "Do you cook?" like I had never used a garlic skin peeler, ricer, cast iron pan, baking pan with removable bottom before. Oh wait I never have! I thought I knew how to cook.
Don't worry I can't afford anything in this store so I will continue to cook with out luxuries. The truth is as she was telling me about some products I was thinking "You could use a fork instead. I would just use my finger. Ooooh I need that one." I learned a lot today and that was just one little corner of the store. I was mostly on the till doing all the money exchange. That was good. My co-workers are all very nice and super relaxed. I did miss my kids, but I am very grateful for this job and will do my best!
Thank you Shelli for coming to the store today and supporting me. Taking my picture on my first day was really sweet too :)
