Whines.....

We have a large Boeing plant here and they announced today that they will be closing starting this fall and totally closed by the end of next year. Over 2,200 people will lose their jobs and it will effect many more outside of the plant too. My stepson is one who will lose his job. I have a good feeling about his future, though, and that a bright new door will open for him.

A friend of mine was diagnosed with ovarian cancer just before Christmas. It doesn't look good. She had a hysterectomy today and we'll find out her prognosis tomorrow. I really like this woman a lot and feel so badly for her in what she is going through. Very scary!!

WooHoos.....

My car repair today cost quite a bit less than I thought it would.

We didn't need very many groceries, so that bill was considerably less, too, and I had a $25 gift card that I used also!

I only gained 3 lbs in the last two weeks and I'm back on track!

We ran out of time to go to the movie theater today, but we will tomorrow for sure to see Breaking Dawn.

Have a good week everyone!!

Yes, closing the Boeing plant will have an enormous impact on our community and beyond. It affects so many other areas and businesses too, besides all of those losing their jobs. United Way of the Plains announced this morning that they will lose $500,000 per year that the Boeing workers will no longer be contributing. And that's only one of many agencies or areas that will be affected. My stepson is a graphic designer and an artist. His girlfriend has good connections to galleries and he is hoping to make a career out of his art. Of course, he knows about the "starving artist" and will seek other employment too. He will be on a job search and may be given the option of moving to another of the Boeing locations too. We'll see what happens next.

I just got an update email about my friend. The hysterectomy surgery went well, the cancer is on her other organs as was expected; but the doctor said it should be very receptive to chemo. That sounds good!! Thank you for saying a prayer for her, she needs a miracle!!

Just learned that Sierra's Cremation Interment will be tomorrow morning. John and I will be there. It will be good for everyone to get past this part of the grief journey.
