Lots of new things...

So its been awhile-here is the update on this Hornbuckle house...

I resigned from Best Buy :(.  I had to find something closer to home, because I was having a really hard time thinking about being away from Amelia for 50+ hours a week.  Sooooo, I went on the job hunt, applied for a bunch of jobs, and got one!  I am now the first assistant manager at Cato.  Cato is a women's apparel store, and I love it!  I actually get to use my degree, and I work with awesome ladies!  It was really hard to leave Best Buy, and my Best Buy family, but I had to do it for my sanity.

My mommy left about 2 weeks ago.  I got to spend almost 4 wonderful months with her, and I was devastated when she left.  I'm feeling a lot better now, but it still sucks. Thank goodness for Skype.   Mom and Dad are coming back in the summer, and I'm super excited for that!

Aaron has been have these weird dizzy spells for a while, and he finally went to the Doctor about it.  Doc said that he has Vertigo...poor kid.  He really can't seem to catch a break.  He did discover that when he wears his glasses that it isn't as bad.  He stayed home all week last week, and when he went back to work yesterday, he said he thought about Amelia all day :(.  He missed her a lot! 

And now here are the random Amelia facts:
1. The Early Access ladies were very impressed with how well she is doing! (She measured right were she is supposed to be!)
