Days 571 & 572 and this crisis

It's interesting that I'm facing a crisis so soon after writing about having joy in the face of one a couple of weeks ago. Here's what I was thinking about today. Last fall when I lost two kids because their mom lost her job and her DHS assistance, I could look back later and realize it was a good thing. I ended up taking two science classes that were VERY hard for me in the fall and it was easier to get through those classes without a heavy load of kids. Then just as Tom's job dropped down to 32 hours a week in January, I filled those spots. So now, maybe Tom's job will go back to full-time or I will pick up some new kids. The thing is that I am sure it will all work out. I won't say I haven't worried, because I am human and I have. But not like I normally would. I am sure that is due to prayers being sent up. Hope everyone is having a nice weekend!

Days 568, 569, & 570 and very discouraged

Hey guys, sorry for no postings the last couple of days. Tuesday night I had a meeting that lasted longer than I thought and by the time I got home, I was exhausted and went to bed. Then yesterday was a very rough day and it has left me feeling very discouraged. I lost two kids yesterday. I won't go into details here, but I would like to request some prayers, both for the openings that I now have and just my state of mind.

Days 564, 565, 566, and 567 & school is sneaking up on me!

Dangit! Where has this summer gone? School is sneaking up on me, big time! I'm ready for the kids to start, NOT ready for myself to start. I've not got my proposal ready for my Study in Depth class that I have to submit before classes start on the 24th. I never intended to let that go all summer long without getting done. Then all my clubs and groups will resume meetings soon too. So time to pull myself out of relaxation mode and get busy! Wish me luck!

I had a nice trip to Tahlequah. I got to see my friend for supper on Friday night (and a little bit on Saturday). The child care conference was nice, I learned a lot and I got inspiration for getting my proposal started, so that was great.

Hope everyone has a great week!
