This year has been so exciting for me, I was able to be on the opening team of a new restaurant at Disney, got to spend 2 weeks with my family on vacation, moved to a new apartment, and so much more.  I keep thinking I can't get any busier but then something else comes up and most of these things have been good things not all but most. I am so thankful for what God is doing in my life and even though I know I have SO much to work on I have seen His work in  my life and in others so clearly this year that I feel very blessed. This all being said I cannot stop thinking about my Grandma who passed away almost two years ago now, I wish she was hear so I could share these things with her, I know she would be so happy to hear all the things that are going on with me and with my sisters and family. I am glad that she is not in pain anymore and is with her Heavenly Father celebrating. When I think of her I think of strength, she was in pain for most of her life but I think that she held a lot of that in and she had great faith and a strong prayer life. I know I did not appreciate the things she shared all the time but I appreciate that she was there and always listened when I called or came over to see her. She always loved hearing about what was going on in my life, she would always have treats for us when we came home or went over to say hello. Most of the people I grew up with knew her from seeing her at my swim meets or water polo games, she always wanted to go even if it meant being in the sun all day and being uncomfortable.  I am not sure why all these things are on my mind right now but it could be that I would love to pick up the phone and call her and share with her all thats going on and I would also love to visit and watch The Jolson Story with her. Either way she is on my mind right now and I miss and love her and the memories of her.

I want a dog

   My goal is to get a dog for Christmas. I want a Pit Bull.  Another goal is to run another half marathon this year and by next year run a full. Maybe throw in a triathlon somewhere if I can get a bike.  

 I started at a new location like a month ago about or so and we just opened last week, I really love it and I am so glad to be doing something different. It is challenging for me and I am learning so much. One negative is that its taking up all my time and I know I am neglecting some relationships and for that I apologize.  I have a lot to work on but I am getting there (I think a dog would help... maybe not but I still want one)

C.S. Lewis

"A silly idea is current that good people do not know what temptation means. This is an obvious lie. Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is... A man who gives in to temptation after five minutes simply does not know what it would have been like an hour later. That is why bad people, in one sense, know very little about badness. They have lived a sheltered life by always giving in."

Something Witty...

I tried out a one liner for my new job and this is the feedback I got --"Amy, that was terrible."

So I will think of something else or I will just use the pre-designed spiels that probably won't come very naturally to me, or I will stay away from the bar (not gonna happen)

In 2 days we will be having our soft open for the new restaurant and bar that I will be working in and I am excited/scared/anxious/excited. I love the new challenge and I LOVE being back in food and beverage, I learned so much working at the Front Desk but now I am on to a new challenge. Go me!
