Still Here

Even though I have taken a little "blog break," we are still here. I have been busy learning the ropes at work. (aka-figuring out ALL the mounds of paperwork.) So far, I am really loving it. I have been training with the other Career Specialist and they are some of the best people I have ever met. I knew I was in a good place when at the first staff meeting, the director prayed before we began the meeting. So rare these days! Dealing with people on a daily basis who are unemployed or have been recently laid off really gives me a sense of what tough times we are going through. I say a prayer of thanks every day for this job and the opportunity God has given me to help those individuals.

I have been out of town the past few weekends so we haven't gotten much accomplished as far as the house goes. We did paint the living room but I am waiting to post pictures until I can find window treatments I like. Who knows when that will be! Our plans are to tackle painting our master bedroom and bath next. Whooo! It makes me tired just thinking about it. But, it will be so worth it once we are finished.
