Hi Angela!!

FIVE YEARS!!!!!!! We did it girl!

Congratulations to all of my fellow August Champions!!! We earned our wings! Thank the Lord!!!

I'm doing well, trying to keep our immune systems working optimally so no one gets sick. Covid hasn’t touched any one in my family so praying. I’m so relieved to hear you guys are fine and your parents fully recovered. All of the babies are doing great! I take care of the boys. They’re all getting so big! We just found out we have another one on the way!! This time, my oldest son and his fiancé are expecting. We’re so excited! 

Congratulations on passing your exams! It was a long road but I knew you had it in you. 

Check back in when you can, take care!!

Hi Kim!

Aww - congrats! Another on the way! That is so exciting - we are getting close to trying to start our family - but we are working on building a house first! We are actually mid planning with an architect now for the plans - hope to be moved in by the end of 2021...its going to be a long process lol we are just at the beginning right now!

I am so glad to hear COVID hasn't touched anyone in your family - I pray it doesn't!

Yes - I am so glad I passed my exams - and I actually was promoted to manager too (basically they were just waiting for me to pass my CPA, as its mandatory for a management position) so I am glad I am done and can continue to progress at work as well! 

Gosh - 5 years - I really can't believe it some days. I honestly forget I even smoked! Right now is a bit stressful as we have the 2 storms in the gulf potentially headed our way - though its looking like Marco will go to Louisiana and miss us, but Laura is a little more unknown - hope she turns! 2020 has been crazy enough!! 

Talk to you soon! :)

Hi Kim,

Was thinking of you and all of the August Champs! 

Hope all is well! I am busy busy with work and Holiday stuff - I finally finished my CPA and got promoted to a management position and it is already so much more work! lol 

Hope you are ready for Christmas! Though this year will be a little different overall - because of COVID!

Talk to you soon

Hey Angela!

Just decided to check in and saw your post. Congratulations on your new management position! So proud of you!! 

How was your Christmas? Family doing well? Mine was wonderful! Spent it in GA this year with kids and grand babies. All the kids are getting so big. New one due beginning of April. Can’t wait!!

Covid has definitely ruined everything. I could talk about a lot of things going on right now but I’ll leave it there, lol!

Talk soon sweetie!

Kim

Hey Kim!

Ahh - you know this time of year is so crazy with tax season! Work is finally slowing down a bit to 50 hours a week versus 60+! 

Was your new grandbaby born already?! SO EXCITING! My hubby and I plan to start trying the end of the year (our new house should be done Nov-Dec - we have been kind of waiting for that to start a family)! Always thought about our future family when I was quitting smoking - so glad thats a non issue for me now!!

Christmas was good - small, and a bit different with COVID, but thankful to spend it with family! Easter was actually the first time we got to see extended family in over a year, it was nice! :)

Hope you're well! :)

Hi Angela!

I remember how crazy busy you get at tax time. It must be even worse with all the new tax laws/breaks, etc!!

My granddaughter came 4 weeks early! She is perfect!!!!! Even tho she was a preemie, she was very alert and could hold her head up.

I just started taking care of her on Monday & Tuesday while her parents work. Her other grandmother takes care of her Thursday & Friday while my son has her on Wednesday which is his day off. She is the sweetest thing!!! 

So, my husband & I got COVID beginning of April. We joined a gym and went ONE time and caught it! GO FIGURE!!!! I only had a few minor symptoms, mainly felt like allergies (stuffy nose). My hubbs had a bad cough, fever for about a week, lost his appetite for about two weeks (lost 25lbs) and couldn’t sleep bcuz of his cough. We both are perfectly fine!

Congratulations on the new house!! I can’t wait to hear when you’re expecting!

Kids are heading here in a couple days so they can meet the new little one. When my daughter, hubby and youngest leave to go back to GA, they’re leaving my older two granddaughters with us for two weeks and then we’re driving them back and staying there for two weeks. CAN’T WAIT!!!!

Last but not least, my hubby is retiring sooner than planned so we are moving to GA in December!!! It’s bittersweet! I have been looking forward to this for YEARS as you know but I am leaving my two kids, their spouses and three grandkids behind. Now we will be traveling back and forth the opposite way, LOL!! 

Anyway, really glad to hear from you, looking forward to chatting again!

Hi Kim!!!

First off - Congrats on 6 years!!!!

I actually completely forgot until my friend sent me flowers (shes been doing it every year since I quit) and then it hit me! How funny that 6 years ago smoking was ALLLL that I thought of - and now I almost never do! 

Wow - moving to GA already! Thats so awesome - though I can imagine you will miss your kiddos up north.

My husband and I actually caught covid this past January as well and were fortunate to have very mild symptoms too. I was hoping things would be closer to normal by now - but it seems with Delta we are headed backwards. Hubby and I have a trip planned in November - really hope it still happens!! We havent travelled much in 2 years - itching to have one final trip before we start trying for babies! ;)

Talk to you soon!

Angela <3
