Well, I am on another new adventure.
I have gone back to work for my father's company three days a week to run his office. The reason I am needed is such a loooong and seedy-ish story of frustration, lack of trust and anger that I won't bore you with the details. Besides...I don't like to air dirty laundry in public.
So, needless to say, I am back to work 5days/week. On the one hand, I love having something to do everyday. On the other hand, I am afraid of what's going to happen to my house. I am already not a great housekeeper. Things get kind of cluttered. Now, with two teenagers home and no mommy to make them clean up after themselves....*gasp*...I don't even want to think about it. They have also expressed the fact that they are not thrilled about being home alone every day. While I can sympathize with them (my mom went back to work when I was 13 and I was lost), I don't see any other way of doing "this" without me having a second job.
My job for the last year and a half cannot guarantee me more hours each week. So I decided that I was going to pursue a second part time job. I don't really want to leave my current job. But, with powerlifting nationals happening in Corpus Christi, TX next year and wanting to go on a family vacation this summer...amongst many other things, like everyone needs new clothes and shoes, etc...we needed more income. We live very basic on our current checks...there just isn't anything more for anything else. Anyway, I prayed about it and asked God to provide a job that wasn't going to interfere with church and the plans I already have in place. Lo and behold, he provided me this one (where I really wanted to be anyway), for more pay than I was expecting. God is good, is He not?
So now I will have access to the internet and hopefully will be a MUCH better blogger and sharer of patterns and pictures than I have been up till now. As a matter of fact, I tried to plug my memory card into this computer and it was having none of it. So we shall see. I swear my patience is being tried with this camera!!
I have completed one of the afghans that I was planning as a graduation gift, along with the matching slippers. I have at least one more to go...maybe two, but I have a feeling I will not be completing those until after graduation. We'll see. I have a picture of the blanket, I really do, but I can't get it off my SD card right now. May have to wait till a different day if I am unable to figure this out.
Ok, I'm signing off for now. Have a great day!
