Update

It seems like I am only doing updates these days. Well, here's another one...

We are doing pretty good. Yesterday was my birthday. We went up North to my mom's house and spent some time with family and friends. We had hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, beans, chips and dessert. YUM! We hung out by the pool, played in the pool, played bean bag toss and played darts. It was a great day. Overcast to sunny, but no rain! It normally always rains on my birthday because it's in the summer and I live in the South.

I've been looking for a job the past couple of weeks since we got settled in. I'm done with my schooling and I have my certificates, but with no actual job experience it's going to be a bit harder for me to get a job. I'm studying for my test which I hope to take at the end of October, but in the mean time I'm applying for anything that I think I'm qualified for. I have a lot of experience in customer service, so I'm applying for clerical, administrative and pharmacy tech, which is what my background work experience is.

I haven't had a job in two years. I've been a house wife. It doesn't look great on my resume that my last job was April 2009, but being a house wife is a job. No, I didn't get paid for it, but I took care of my husband, our house, our animals and myself. I did the bills, the grocery shopping, regular shopping, if M needed something I could take it to him. It was an important job and it still is an important job. I'm just ready to contribute financially to our family. I'm ready to have our vehicles paid off. That's all the debt we have besides normal bills like rent, utilities, etc.

Anyway, that was a little rant that I wasn't expecting to go on. We are doing okay. There is a lot going on in the world and everybody could use prayers these days. I think I'm going to have to make a list to make sure I get everything prayed for that I want to pray for. I hope everyone has a great week and is blessed!
