As many of you know, I packed up my car and moved to Kansas last month, got a job in security (same field I've been in for 11 years) and all was well. Then my daughter and her boyfriend decided to move to Georgia and I had nothing to stay in Kansas for, seeing as we had put my daughter's boyfriend's alcoholic father (who we were living with) in jail for battery, it was just a hopeless situation.

So the day that the kids left for Georgia, I left for Florida. Now I am pleased to announce that I am officially out of the security industry. I have been given a chance to do some property management work and I'm sure I will love it!

The more time that goes by, the more I see that God does indeed work in mysterious ways and there is a reason for everything.

Always keep the faith.

~ Wow! Didn't you just leave Florida for Kansas? Dixie, you have been through a lot, I can only wish the best of luck to you.

Hey Mike good to see you

I left for Kansas on August 15th, moved in with my daughter's boyfriend's father (in the grandfather's house) on the 16th because he said the part of town I was originally planning on moving to was a bad part of Missouri. The kids moved in with us a few days later. Started my new job on August 28th. Ended my new job on September 17th. I left for Florida on September 19th.

I went in yesterday to meet the assistant manager of the property I'll be managing, though I had talked with the owner on the phone before I actually moved back to Florida. I will be meeting her when she comes down from Atlanta on Thursday.

Luckily, my old roommate took me back without even asking for rent up front.

Yep, it was a short ride but it sure did me some good.

Dixie

Sometimes we have to put a little time and space between us and our problems to get clarity.

Glad to hear you have a new career. You are 100% right... there'a reason for everything. I wish you all the best!

DIxie,
Girl, I am SOOOO happy to see that you are getting your life together, and that you are making yourself happy. You certainly deserve it.
Keep us posted.

You may burn my flag... only after you wrap yourself in it first.

You hit some bumps, twists, and turns on your new road ~ but you stood strong and just headed down another road! Your strength, courage, and chutzpah are showing!

Good luck in yet another leg in your life's circuitous journey!

Loving hug,
Linda

Thank you friends

I think I start today mid-morning...so I am waiting for her call now.

It really is good to be back among family here at PIP. The time I was gone I had no computer access unless I wanted to drive up to the library and even then, I had little time. I enjoy sharing my life with everyone here.

You guys are a fantastic online support system

thanks to everyone who has been there for me with congrats and support

I sure have my work cut out for me. The bank people came today and the property was appraised at well over what we had expected, so we got the loan for the new facility, a three-story climate control building with card controlled access.

Once that is built, hopefully within a year, the property will be appraised at 4 times what it is now (folks, we're talking millions here)

Things are slowly coming together and I take it day by day and I know I'll be okay because of the wonderful friends I have and, of course, where all the credit goes...the man upstairs.

Hi Steve

good to hear from you!

Personally, I don't think we'll get another major hurricane for a few more years or longer. It's better than tornados and snow and ice storms, for sure.

I'm doing well, yes. Things are looking up finally. Hope to talk again soon and I hope you are doing great yourself!

Dixie, doing well here, bought a house last year and I am buying about six acres soon to be added on to that dreaded mortgage, lol.  I have been doing really good since I have been paroled from my last relationship.  Too much drama, lol.  I have met someone totally cool, we will be getting married in the near future.  I have really come to know what is real and what is fake!!!  Some would dought that, but no use in debating the issue.  She is blonde and green eyes, about 95 lbs and she is totally in love with my girls.  I could not be happier.  Is that a word, lol!  Anyway, I got a promotion from the navy, GS7, I sometimes feel sorry for wasting the tax payers dollars, lol!  I am still on yahoo im if you want to chat, talk to you later, Steve
