Pray for Justin.

If you have been reading my blog for awhile, then you have heard me mention the crew better yet my second family. They are the best friends I could ever ask for. And although we are spread across the world from Japan to California to Arkansas at the moment, we are still a family.

With that said, I am asking for your prayers. Justin, Jackie's husband, was in an accident which caused a serious head injury and he is now in a coma. He is a United States Marine and has been deployed to Japan since the spring. Please pray that he will recover from this, and his wife, sisters, parents, family and crew will be able to share many more memories with him.

Thank you for your prayers.

Jay Ohh Bee

I went to Ft. Worth last weekend to spend the weekend with Will. It was a great weekend!! We went to the Texas Rangers game on Friday. The fireworks after the game were awesome, but the game felt like it lasted forever. And I am even a baseball fan--Will not so much. We also went to the Modern Art Museum of Ft. Worth and practiced being "modern." I am surprised we did not get kicked out. We don't do the whole "being modern, reflecting on art" thing so well, so the trip consisted of a lot of laughing!

I then spent all of Saturday being a TCU fan minus wearing purple. The only color of clothing I did not pack, of course. We watched the game at an amazing Taco place called Fuzzy's Tacos. I definitely recommend the shrimp taco with a little butt burning sauce (yes, that's the official name) if you are ever in the area.

I also learned that I suck at darts, but Will was nice enough to put up with it through a few games. It was a great time, and I met some cool people, and made many trips to Whataburger. Unfortunately, I won't be able to keep making tons of trips to the Lonestar state because I accepted a jay ohh bee.

SO, Monday I will start my new job as a manager in training at Abercrombie & Fitch. The opportunity fell into my lap yesterday when a friend from college called to see if I would be interested. I interviewed and now I start on Monday--very crazy. It seems like everytime I go to Texas, I come back to some type of job opportunity.

I am so thankful for this opportunity! I had got a side job at Old Chicago in NLR and went to one day of training. I hated it. I did the restuarant thing all through college, which was great then, but I am ready for a "big girl" job.

I never thought I would start working at Abercrombie or still be in Arkansas at this point, but I know the experience will be worthwhile. So my "moving to Texas" plans are put on hold for now. I will get out of this place sooner or later, but hopefully sooner.

This means I have one last weekend as an unemployed graduate. WHAT TO DO? Well, Katey and I are having a garage sell. Katey will be moving soon for a new job, so we are trying to make a little extra cash to use until we start bringing in the paychecks. Those are my exciting weekend plans so far! I'm sure I will find something to get into.
