Life is tricky...one minute things are going in a certain direction...next you are off going in a direction you didn't think you'd be going. As vague as that sounds let me explain...up until two weeks ago I was a stay at home mom doing her thing...plate was full enough...so I thought...then God stepped in....answered in a way, a prayer I prayed a while back, and though I would have never wanted it to be answered that way, He did answer. I am now an employed momma...only part time 18-20 hours a week, but am employed. Our church secretary had a heart aneurism (or however you spell it) and will be out of commission for at least 2-3 months. In steps me...the closest fill in...and I'm honored to do it...really I am....I just feel so sorry for Shirley (our secretary) and hope and pray she gets better soon...I do have a new appreciation for the work she does in our church office though...she is very organized...which helped me out a lot. So I is a workin' woman again. And let me tell ya...after spending the past almost 9 years (hard to believe it's been that long) out of the workforce...it truly has felt a little weird being back at it in a job...actually very weird. I really have enjoyed being at home...maybe a bit too much and I've been spoiled (if you can even say that being a SAHM)....I love being at home.
But honestly this job came at the right time...of course it did, because it was God's time...not mine. I was wondering how we were going to do Christmas this year, and hey God answered. HE is truly good!
So other things...hmm...well I'm still taking my class over at Big Picture Scrapbooking....having loads of fun with that, even if I am a bit behind on my assignments...learning lots and loving it!
Taught a scrapbooking class at our church Tuesday night...the challenge that we are currently doing at Faithsisters, I'm teaching the ladies at church and we are using paper bag albums to do it....now I've been teaching scrapbooking at the church for a couple months now and usually have no more than 4-5 ladies. Tuesday night I had 22 counting myself....22!! I was stunned...luckily I had a sign up list so I had an idea beforehand how many would be there...but I even had a couple extra show up...It was a super class...the ladies (and boys...I had a couple preteen boys their with their mom)seemed to realy enjoy it and I got many compliments...it was so amazing...God has been good!
Other than that I'm just trying to get into a routine since I'm not home during the day doing hte normal things I usually do so I'm doing laundry now before I leave for work, and then before I pick the boys up from school, then of course afterwards...house cleaning will have to wait for Thursdays or the weekends...but overall...I'm adjusting OK.
Well I need to get some projects done...maybe even straighten up my office (ha-ha)...until next time...have a super week!
