a little update from me...

hello everyone! another post and no pictures *sorry* it's been a week since I posted and still I'm not back home, still on the road doing the Lobby thing. I've worked so many hours that my overtime has gone into overtime *smile* I'm praying sometime Tuesday I can head towards my beloved family cause I've sure been missing them something terrible! and ya'll too! I droll over the idea of spending an entire day planted in front of my computer catching up with everyone's wonderful blogs and decorating adventures.

Today we had what is called a "soft" open meaning we opened the doors to the public but didn't advertise. People were so excited to see the new store they were over heard on cell phones calling friends and family "hey Hobby Lobby is open NOW" *giggles* I can't tell you how proud I felt to be a part of it and see how this one store brought such happiness and excitment to a small community. People were saying things like "I've been waiting forever for ya'll to open a store here" or "I'm so happy you're here" just nice things said by nice people, this is a great community. And I got to be a part of it..

Hopefully soon I'll be back home where I belong but until then know that I am so missing reading everyone's blogs. Have a wonderfully blessed weekend!

I was so excited to see that you had updated your blog. I can only imagine the excitement when people first walked into the store. I know I was like a kid in a candy store.lol I'm glad everything is going well. I hope they're not working ya to death. They should provide Starbucks gift cards for all the employees. :-)

Oh girl I was so excited to see your lovely face in my comments that I thought YEA SHE IS HOME!!! OK so you are not home quite yet but soon, so soon.

I bet it was like you were watching everyone on Christmas morning with them all being so excited about their new store!!! I remember the excitement when it opened here.

Oh, I know you are working your tail off but I'm sure you feel so thrilled that you were a part of the big project. Soon you will be back home and able to relax and enjoy your family. I look forward to your being home so we can "talk" every day!!

I hope you are not going to tell me you were in Georgia. There is a store opening about 45 min away. I would come to meet you if I knew you would be there. So were you in Statesboro? That store was supposed to be opening in Oct. so it is possible. I wondered where you had been. Jackie

I just knew it. What days will you be over there, and what day is the Grand Opening? It will mostly depend whether or not I have to substitute teach. Everybody around is so excited to have a Hobby Lobby close by. Jackie
