The Goins-on around Here

Well, I obviously haven't posted for a while. :o)

There hasn't been TOO much going on around here. Mike got back on Monday from a trip to California. He went down there for training for work. It was great to have him home. I missed him terribly. :o) And he was so nice as to get me presents while he was down there! :o) Such a nice husband. :o) I think he might have missed me too. Just a lil'. ;o)

Anyways, the girl taking over my position at work starts on Monday. Turns out that I will be working at Spenard's until the 21st of May. As that day draws closer, I get more and more excited about it. I'm really looking forward to just staying home, and being able to get things done. I really think it's going to be a good time for me.

Ok, well I think I'm gonna go to bed for the night. I'm tired dude. :o) Hope you all have a fabulous night, and a wonderful Sunday. :o)

Please Pray

The baby I asked for prayer for a couple weeks ago still needs our prayers. Since I last posted about him, he has been moved to a hospital in Boston.

He is scheduled for surgery tomorrow morning, on his heart. A procedure called and Ablation, which is very, very risky in babies his size. But at this point, the doctors have no choice, and they are moving ahead with extreme caution. While the surgery is scheduled for tomorrow, it could be bumped up as early as tonight. Please pray for the doctor's to have wisdom, and the Lord to have his hand on sweet Stellan.

Some Thoughts

Well, I "formally" resigned from my position at Spenard's yesterday, by turning in my letter of resignation. My last day is going to depend on how quickly someone gets hired and trained. I'm back and forth on this issue. One minute I'm hoping I get to stay until the day before I leave for my trip to Texas, which would be the 21st of May (I leave on the 22nd). Then the next minute I'm just wanting it to be over, and moving on, and then back again. So, thankfully, the Lord already knows what's going to happen, and I do not have to worry about it. He's got it all mapped out, and he has a plan. And for that, I am thankful. :o)

I hope my post the other day didn't come across wrong. I don't want any of you to think that I am a career woman, who simply has to have a job, because that's not me. Quite frankly, I spent the first several months of marriage unhappy with my work situation because I wanted to quit so badly. But my husband thought it best that I kept working, so I did. But I wasn't happy about it. Bad attitude. Anyways, over time I came to enjoy my job, even though it was hard to work a full time job and take care of my home and husband the way I need to be. I no longer wanted to quit my job, and things were running smoothly. Haha, then the bump came. This bump. And suddenly, things were switched around: I'm quitting my job, and I don't want to, and my husband is the one sitting there saying that I should just quit, and that it doesn't matter what I do as far as a job situation when I get back from Texas. Funny how things work sometimes. :o) But I want you all to know that I am not opposed to staying home full time. I do not need a job to make me feel "complete" or "needed" or any other kind of non-sense like that. I am perfectly fine with staying home, if that's what I end up doing. As of this moment, I simply don't know. There are a lot of factors that will go into that decision. For now, I'm just taking things a day at a time, and trying to be quiet and still, and figure out what it is that the Lord would have me to do. Because that's all that matters anyways.

So, I feel like this is all coming across more dramatic than it should be, than I'm meaning it. :o) I'm feeling better every day about this decision. I guess it was just the initial shock of getting rid of something that has been my life day in and day out for the past 2 1/2 years that upset me so. I know that the Lord is good, and that his plans are good, and I rejoice in that. I'm excited to see where His path takes me, and what new opportunities this could open in my life.

I love you all and appreciate all the supporting comments. :o) You don't know what that means to me. It's nice to be reminded that there are still some who care. Hugs. :o)

It's Been A Crazy Week

Well, sorry I haven't posted in a while. It's been a crazy week. On Tuesday I went home from work a little early because I had a terrible sinus headache all day, and I was miserable. I ended up coming down with this cold that has been going around. Fun. I stayed home on Wednesday and Thursday. Wednesday I was able to get a lot done around the house, even though I was miserable all day. Couldn't hardly breathe through my nose, and everything else. Thursday I didn't get anything done because I woke up with a killer headache that didn't go away all day. Anyways, I was feeling better on Friday, so I went into work.

Friday was another story... to get right to it: I ended up putting in my resignation at work. I had a meeting with my boss, Debbie right before I went to lunch. We talked about a lot of stuff, that I just don't really feel like going into, because it's just a long story. But, basically, my life goals aren't really matching up with the goals that Spenard's has for me, and I guess it's just time for me to move on. I'm sad, because while I was planning on quitting hopefully in the next several months, I wasn't quite ready yet. I have enjoyed my job. It's been a fairly good place to work, and I've been comfortable there. But, when things were just laid out before me, I could see that I didn't really have a choice. I had to chose between the things that were highly important to me, and the things that were important to SBS. Me resigning from my job is what's best for me, and what's fair to Spenard's. I'm going to miss the great people that I work with, but plan on popping in from time to time to say hello. I will be there up until the 21st of May, which is the day before I leave for my trip to Texas. But my last day could be earlier, if they hire someone else, and get them trained before then. But I'm hoping to be able to stay up until my trip. We'll see what happens though. Please pray for the Lord's guidance in this area of my life, as I don't know what I'm going to do when I get back from Texas. Mike says he doesn't have a problem with me not working, but since I don't exactly have any little babies to take care of I think I would get real bored real fast just staying at home all the time. :o) So, I'm thinking I'll try to find something that's part time, although the thought of starting a new job is intimidating to me. So, anyways, please pray for me. I would really appreciate it. :o)

Hmm, well I was gonna post about something else, but I can't seem to remember what it was. :o) I hope you all have had a wonderful Easter, and are celebrating our Lord rising from His grave. What an amazing, forgiving savior we have. :o) I love you all.

Well, yeah...

I think I'm just gonna say that I took this week off as far as my chore calendar goes. :o) I hurt my back on Tuesday night working out, so I didn't do my chores that night. And Mike and I were doing some things around town last night, so I didn't do them last night either. And of course, being the party animals that we are, I won't be doing them tonight, as we're getting together with a group of friends. :o) And tomorrow, a bunch of us girlies are getting together, so...maybe I'll do my chores after they all leave. Or maybe I'll just start everything back up like normal on Monday. :o) We'll see. :o)

I started reading Persuasion for Jenn's book club. It's my first Jane Austin. I'm liking it so far, although it did take me a couple chapters to get into the swing of how she writes. But I'm enjoying it so far. :o) Hopefully I'll get it done soon, because I've got a stack of books that I need to read. :o)

I bought my plane tickets today to go to Texas in May. I'm SO excited. :o) I leave on the 22nd, and get back on the 7th of June. In one month and 18 days I will be seeing this little girl:

I simply cannot wait to hug her again, and smother her in kisses. :o)

Oh! and I will more than likely have a brand new nephew by then, whom I will ALSO cover in kisses. I can't wait! :o)

And of course, I can't wait to see my sister in law, and my brother, and my cousins, Aunts, Uncles, grandparents. :o) It's going to be a great trip, and I'm so excited. :o)

Alright, well that's all that's going on with me for now. Hope you all are having a wonderful Friday, and hope you have a fabulous weekend! :o)
