I've taken a little bloggy break.
Its been a stressful couple of days around here with Matthew having a little anxiety about his new math class- he got moved a grade ahead and was feeling overwhelmed- a couple of rough days at work and some urgent repairs to my car. I feel like each time I take a step forward, I have to take two steps back.
Mike had worked some overtime last week and that all ended up going to the repairs for my car (Thank you, Honey!) and I feel like a worn-out doormat at work for doing the same job as the other lady in the kitchen while she makes twice what I do. I just feel as though I'm not making any progress and what I was told at the beginning of the school year keeps getting changed or rearranged. I am really trying to keep up my usually positive attitude through this, but it is getting harder each day.
At one point this week, I was just ready to tell Mike we should get ourselves some Arizona luxury real estate and get out of Dodge. Then I remembered his sister saying that she couldn't wait to get back to Ohio after moving to Arizona.
Anyway, had we actually moved to Arizona, I couldn't have borrowed his sister's car while mine was being worked on and that was such a lifesaver!! (Thank you Shelly!)
I know that God has a reason for all of this, but it is so hard to live life according to His time and not mine. I need to remember: patience, patience, patience.
I had a day off today and I went with Steven's preschool class to a local apple orchard. We had a great time! It was so nice. We learned a lot about making cider and growing apples.
So I'm not sure how long this break will last and I can't promise that I will or will not post over the weekend. I hope you'll bear with me as I enjoy a little down time and regroup so I can once again bring you more of the mediocre content you are used to here. ;o)
Have a great weekend everyone!
