Yes! Attending Reunion

I moved from Paradise to Woodland in 1995. I quit my job as a restaurant manager and became a waitress. I have worked at the same place for the past 15 years, surviving three different owners. At times, I get frustrated with my job, but it's my loyal customers that keep me going. I love them all, and I have fun! (The money's not bad either).

My husband, Dale, is self-employed. He has an appliance repair business and does warranty work for some companies. So far the economy hasn't hurt us too much. I thank God every day that we are still able to pay our mortgage and all our bills.

Update: January 8, 2014

I've been working as a para-educator since 2011. It was a struggle at first, but now I know there is nothing I'd rather do. For the past two years I have been a one-on-one for a special needs high school student. It's absolutely wonderful! I still work as a server part-time, to help supplement our income.
