Happy Thanksgiving!

So I am Canadian so it's Thanksgiving here! (Not until tomorrow, but we celebrated today.

I am stuffed to the brim with turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie! We had about 20 people at our house today! It was excellent. I love having my family gather together, and I really wish we would do it more often. My sister, her husband and their dog are still here, however they are watching the hockey game. I tried to stick it out and watch for a while but it just didn't work.

I thought I would list some things that I am thankful for!

1. Getting together with family.
2. Puppies (I love having two in the house!)
3. A place to live free of charge!
4. Having a gym in the basement.
5. Music in all its wonderfulness. Harmony that comes along with it. Dissonance.
6. A job!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

A great weekend!

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending a conference called Weekend in the Word. At first I was extremely anxious about going. I had been informed that people there would be extremely modest, and I felt quite nervous about that. I consider myself to be a very modest person, but the fear that I would not be good enough was overwhelming. Not to mention that everyone there was from a homeschooling family, and I am not. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against homeschooling - in fact I consider it to be a possibility once I have a family. I have to confess that I was wrong to be nervous.

The conference was held in a small town in Southern Alberta. It made me homesick for my dear Rosebud. The sessions were great! We learned about logic and fallicies. It was difficult to grasp the concepts so quickly but I can honestly say that I did learn something worthwhile. The other sessions were about abortion, homosexuality and doubt. These last three were actually my favorite as there was a large practical aspect to it.

I really enjoyed it and ended up meeting some amazing people this weekend. This is a picture of me and my cousin. She is Almost 16 and one of the most amazing people I know.

I have excellent news! I had a job a job interview on Thursday and heard today that I got the job. It is at a shoe store here in town. I had originally wanted to get out of retail, but if I am going to be in retail I am happy that I am in this store. It's got a great atmosphere with great people.

I am very excited to start working next week!
