PRIORITIES

It's not that this blog isn't a priority....it's just that it is not as high up on the list.

I DO have a lot going on. Some I can only vaguely refer to, at this point in time. I figure....it *has* been 2 weeks since my last entry. Not as good as I had hoped, but more frequent than what I was doing last year.

Today is my 3rd son's birthday. If you look in my archives, on or around April 21st, you can see stuff on him. OR, go to the search bar and search up *microtia.* 

Yep.....that's him.

My oldest son has inherited my Type-A tendencies. Let me go ahead and extend my apologies to his future wife, now. :-/

I need to start working on some Christmas stuff....NOW......

For a few reasons....

The least of which is that I'm probably about to go to work. 

Yeah......

Not sure how I feel about it. I could be a total *you-know-what* about it all. But, the fact is, we need the money. 

We need to get some debt paid off.

We need a new roof.

And a new garage door.

And new vehicles.

A new house.

Things that are possible to get....by going even deeper into debt.

So, here's the thing....if you are living on what you have, and you need quite a bit of money rather quickly....well, doesn't it make sense to go into your career-field? Yeah....it's an obvious answer. 

It isn't a surprise to us, by any means....I just love staying home. 

Truly, I do. 

I love being room-mom to everyone I can.

I love going on impromptu Chipotle and Lobby Therapy runs with my friends.

I love spending 2 days each week, from September - January baking breads and other yummies.

I love my *work clothes* being capris and flip-flops.

I love being able to go to the grocery store on Monday morning.

That is all going to go away, unless of course, I do NOT get a job.

I will get a job. 

I feel it.

SO....that being said....I DO look forward to going back to teaching. I DO love teaching. And, it will be OK. It will be good for everyone.....except the pantry.

I shudder to think the kind of blech we will be eating because I will be grading papers instead of cooking something fabulous.

And, that is totally something I know how to do.

Cook something fabulous.

Praying for you. Follow Christ step by step. And follow your gut! Ha! You were just reminded of that, right?! I'm praying for a miracle for you in his situation, and I trust that whatever the outcome, you will see God's hand wondrously work in your and your family's favor. Love you much. =)

Thank you, friend. I *know* it is time....just hormones and the *don't won't to's* are standing in my way. LOL! I am better on some days. When I get that offer, I know I will be excited....just like every year.

I somehow stumbled upon your blog. Hope you don't mind but I added you to my reading list since I'm on blogger too. I am pretty new to blogger so my blog as of now is boring and hasn't had much going on. As I'm reading your blog I see we have a lot in common - Christian women, wives and stay-at-home moms. I was hoping to find more blogs to read like this. It's not always easy being cooped up at home with the kids although I wouldn't trade this life for anything else. Happy birthday to your child!
