One of those days

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

I’m feeling stressed! Overwhelmed! Aggrevated! Mistreated! Forgotten! Frustrated! Really low, actually!

Do you get the idea?

My day has been “one of those days”! I woke up with a huge zit on my face that hurts like nobody’s business (TMI, I know!). I managed to get everyone up and out on time for Student Council meetings this morning. We even had all of our lunches ready. 🙂

Work is wearing me down. I miss my old job! My new job hasn’t even started. I’m stuck in limbo still. Nothing is happening with my room. No tables, no computers….and no students! We are in our 5th week of school. I’m still so nervous about even doing it….which makes me feel uptight. In the meantime, I’m doing clerical type duties! I DESPISE IT!!! I would rather be substituting! I like that!

I don’t want to be a whiner…..but I guess it’s exactly what I’m doing. So, I’m going to focus on what is good in my life. I recognize that I have so many blessings….and I see that God has me covered. I just need to relax and trust Him.


My family. I have a loving family. We are all alive and healthy. Who am I to complain?
Jobs. Both hubby and I have jobs! That hasn’t always been the case. I don’t ever want to suffer that reality again. Thank you God for providing employment. (But could you work out a raise or two?) 🙂
Kids who love God. What can I say about this? It’s a wonderful feeling to know my kids choose to love God.
A home. While we have struggled to pay for it….we do still have it. I’m thankful for everyday that I live in my house!
Food. We like eating regularly. God makes sure that we can do that. It’s a great blessing!
My computer. I really love it. It’s my favorite toy ever. Someday, I’ll get a real one. Right, honey?
My husband. He’s trying so hard to provide for us. He works all the time and I appreciate him for that. I wish him big success! It’s not a get rich career and he keeps a great attitude about it. Thanks, Don.
The fall. It’s my favorite time again. Even though I can’t afford to buy mums and such to decorate with….I can still enjoy all the great smells and the beauty around me. I will cherish each day of it.
Family weekend at IU. I will finally get to see my sweetboy. I can’t think of a better way to spend my weekend. He’s so worth it!

I have much to be thankful for. God is good to me…even when I’m feeling my lowest. Thank you Lord for loving me and providing for me in so many ways. Help me….to feel at peace!

Living in limbo

Friday, August 28th, 2009

I’ve been waiting on my new job to start.  Yes, really.  I know I whined about being moved to Math Remediation (since I’m not savvy in that area) but c’mon already…..let’s get this baby rolling!

My room is not ready.  I’m waiting on tables, computers and the whatnot to get things going.  Right now, the room has over 30 desks sitting in it.  I’ve done a little sprucing up (cause it was a nasty mess) and I have my personal desk cleaned out and reloaded for my own happy pleasure.  I’ve even covered two bulletin boards with some bright yellow paper and hot pink floral fabric.  Now I just need some fun stuff to poke up there for encouragement.

I’ve been covering for teacher’s, the nurse and in offices (sounds like the old days, huh?).  Today, I was called out of the health center to do data input for Guidance.  What next?  I’m really feeling like I’m in limbo!

I’m just thankful to see Friday!  I heart you Friday!  You’re the only thing I know for sure today.  🙂


I’m so glad you know just what to do with me.  I’m lost without you!  Thank you that you provide me with a great job and a loving family.  Both of which bless me tremendously.  I love you, Lord!
