Happy, & excited, but stressed!

  • My husband has been a police officer for 26 years, and will be retiring in June. {Just 12 weeks away!}
  •  The past few weeks we have spent hours at night sorthing through real estate listings online.
  • Seems like everytime we find one we LOVE, someone buys it before we can even go look at it.
  • I know God has a plan for us, and I guess those other homes just weren't meant to be ours.
  • Today I was so stressed out over it I felt excited, worried, stressed, freaked out, hyper, scared, worried, and about to vomit all at one time! Worst feeling ever!
  • I've already started packing the non-essential items. I just can't believe we are about to move.
  • We talked about it for so long and it always seemed so far away, and now its so close to happening that it's like I feel like a child waiting on Christmas to arrive!
  • Any tips/suggestions do's/donts on the subject are greatly appreciated! Please feel free to post them!

Unexpected Blessings

I haven't been able to post anything in a while, or even read my friends blogs. I just felt like I needed to take a moment to remember all of the blessings God has given me. Seems like I've lost track of all reality since my beautiful grandmother passed away, and in that I have forgotten to be thankful for my blessings.

I had been working at an awful job where I would go into work at 4 in the afternoon, and if I was lucky I would get off at 1am. Most nights it was closer to 2:30 or three before I would get off work. Then I would have to get up the next morning and get my son ready pack his lunch and take him to school. I just felt awful all the time, drained, no energy what so ever!

I finally decided to just quit. I went two months without a job. I applied anywhere and everywhere I could. Then one day I was on Facebook scrolling through my news feed I saw a  post from 24/7  Health & Fitness saying they were looking for Kidz Zone attendants, and to email to schedule an interview.

I went for two different interviews, hoping to just get a job as an attendant. They shocked me when the gave me the coordinator position! God is so good! I had prayed and asked him to help me find a job and its like it literally fell into my lap! (literally on my computer screen)

I started on November 5th, and I enjoy it so much. I work with babies three months old to children twelve years old. I have great hours for a mom who still has to tend to kids, keep up with a house, make dinners etc.

 I am just so thankful for all the blessings I have been given.
