Some of this is repost from my Family Blog.  I actually meant to post my update here.


I’ve been a little MIA in blog land.  I wish I had something exciting to report…


My life may be summed up with one word these days:  Boring!  (Although that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.)  Since I last blogged I’ve survived American Literature, gone on a trip to Jamaica, and read Twilight.  I know, I know…I think I am the last person on Earth to read that book, and actually I wasn’t very impressed.  In my opinion it didn’t live up to the media hype, so I’m in no hurry to read the next book.  I guess I just think vampires are dumb. 


Moving on.


On Friday, I found out that I didn’t get a job that I had interviewed for back in June.  I’m really discouraged with my career right now as I’ve reach a stagnant point within my company.  I found this bible verse that I have taped to my computer now:

“When anxiety was GREAT within me,

Your CONSOLATION brought joy to my soul.”

(Psalm 94:19)


I am praying for contentment as I hold on a little longer to my current job.  I’m unhappy and that makes it terribly hard to come in everyday.  Long story short, although I have worked for my company for 13 years—it’s the only full time job I’ve ever had—and despite the fact that I have an Associates and Bachelor’s degree in Accounting…not to mention I am 6 classes away from my second Bachelor’s degree in Middle Grades Education, I am constantly told that I lack business experience.  I just don’t get how I am supposed to obtain business experience if my company isn’t willing to let me grow.  If anything, it reaffirmed my decision to return to school to teach (something that I know I will LOVE!).  But, it doesn’t make it any easier to stay working there until I can move on to teaching.


On a more happier note…

Jamaica was amazing.  My husband and I went on a trip for our 8th anniversary.  We really couldn’t afford to splurge but did anyway.  Our lives are so full of chaos that we oftentimes neglect each other.  We missed our boys terribly.  It was really great to get away, but equally wonderful to get back to life as we know it.


I must apologize to those of you who read this blog.  I really don’t have anything blog worthy to report in my absence.  Thank you to those of you who have emailed me.  It’s so nice to feel missed J


I intended to continue with my James Bible study over at my family blog soon.  I’m finally finding some down time to ponder over the next segment.  Ironically it’s “Listening and Doing” (and has so much about being slow to speak when angry)!  Don’t you just love that we serve a Lord with a sense of humor.  He doesn’t fail to teach me something new every day!  Love That!
