Update

I've gotten a lot done today. After church and lunch, I started going through my stuff. I set out and labeled three boxes of clothes: Leave at Home, Donate, Bring with me. After I finished going through my dresser, closet, and plethora of clothes on my bedroom floor, I started packing. I picked out some clothes i am going to bring with me but I am going to wear the next four weeks. I'll pack them the night before I leave. Then I folded all the leave home clothes and put them back in my closet…See More

"I'm just saying that the fiddle and the violin are the same thing so does it really matter what it's called?"

Kiersten replied to Carolyn's discussion Yellowstone Musicians
"I'm sure everyone knows the difference between the violin and the fiddle. lol. And you never know what she might play. I'm sure there will be western cowboy tunes but there will probably be also classic pieces too."

Weird Dream...

I had this dream about check-in day. Apparently when I showed up to check-in, I had forgotten the second form of ID and they wouldn't allow me to work. I got really upset in the dream...Not sure why I didn't just call my parents to fax something over in the dream. lol

We rented a mini-van and spent ten days driving around…

Starting Out

Posted on February 28, 2013 at 11:12am 0 Comments

Then, in late February, a packet arrived in the mail congratulating me on getting the job at Yellowstone. Despite my parent's attempts to get me to stay here in Virginia, I have decided to go. My paperwork is in the mail, my plane tickets are booked,…
