...welcome to my ramblings...


Secure with my life...

I feel a little like a housewife today, for the first time since I've been married. I don't have a job that I'm supposed to be at today, I'm supposed to be here, in my house. So I went to the gym, I'm going to wash clothes & I'm going to finally try to finish scrapbooking the pictures from our wedding. Oh & I also need to vacuum & wash a few dishes. I think I like feeling like a housewife...but I'm not sure if my checking account is going to like it? Oh well. I start my online classes tomorrow, June 1st. The first class that I have to take is a course which basically assesses how well you can use the internet & stuff. So it shouldn't be too difficult at all. After that course is finished, I can get into the courses I'm going to need for my teaching degree. I'm so excited! I can't wait to see what my life will be like in 5 years. But I am not going to put any ideas into my head...I'm going to just see where the Lord leads me. It's fun to see what adventures God places in our lives. It also gives me a sense of security, even though I don't know what's coming....that sounds a little weird, but it's so true. :)


The good ole days...

I found this picture on my dad's computer. I thought it was so cute. It's hard to believe we were all so small...it's my brother, Chris, my sister, Sonja & me...I'm the little baby with huge eyes. Every time I've ever seen this picture it always makes me giggle...look how hard Sonja is holding on to the carpet...it's like she's about to fall...I wonder what happened after the flash? :)


Aren't they cute!

The three little ones below are who I have spent the last several sunday mornings with...they are the three babies I have in the nursery during Sunday School and morning service. They are so adorable. I really feel blessed to spend the mornings with them. I'm thankful that God has brought so many new changes into my life. Who knows what will be next? I will be starting my classes toward becoming a teacher either June 1st or July 1st...it really depends on how the whole financial aid thing turns out. I am also going to really be done with Compex this week...friday is the last day! I'm glad that I will be done with it, but the pay check will definitely be missed. I know the Lord will provide, but it will be different for awhile. Oh well...again, aren't they so cute!!! :)





Last day as a CSR for Compex!

Today is my official last day working as a Customer Service Rep in the Special Services department at Compex! I am happy that it is finally over...but I have agreed to come back in for the next 2 weeks as a consultant. I will be coming in for only 4 hours a day to train the new hires. Of course when offered the opportunity, I said I'd think about it. They offered me more money, of course & said I could come in 4 or 5 hours a day. I came back with a response that I would work from 8:30am - 12:30pm & I asked for more money than they offered. They said, "It's a deal!" So now I'll be working here for 2 more weeks...but it will be different, cause I'll only be here for 4 hours a day. And I won't be doing the work, I'll be training & looking over other people's work. I'm still going to get my final paycheck today & I already signed all of the exit papers. Next step, I'm clearing my desk...then it will seem real, when I have an empty cubicle! :)


Happy Mom's day!!



Puddles make good mirrors.
