As we began the new year, I found myself looking for a new job. Where I had been working had to make some changes including budget cuts and I was one of the cuts. A year ago Scott had been looking for a new job and we thought we had weathered all our changes (new job, buying and selling a house, starting new schools) and were in a new normal, and yet, we found ourselves navigating more change.

So I am a doer and a planner and within 24 hours of beginning my job search I had sent about 5 emails, applied for 2 full time jobs and already had one part-time job offer that I accepted. Neither of the full time jobs worked out for me. I did interview for both and one I bowed out of and the other selected someone else. But I have the part-time job; I do have a job.

This new job has brought confusion to my youngest because she doesn’t understand why her scheduled has changed. And she’s so tired and I wish I could take it all away for her but I can’t. So instead I sit with her while she’s mad at me (even in the middle of the night) and my husband and I try to choose joy even when we are weary of the tantrums. And while this transition is a difficult phase the bottom line is it is a phase.

I am grateful for those people in our life that are being graciously walking through this time with us. I am eager to see what else God has in store for us. And I am learning as Shauna Niequist said in Cold Tangerines that “I should have written in pencil.”

And on a lighter note, during this time I am apparently getting better at putting outfits together. I think people are shocked judging by how many comments I get. 🙂 So humor me as I share this creative outlet with you and find my new normal.

  1. I have noticed that online diploma is getting popular because attaining your degree online has developed into popular selection for many people. Quite a few people have not necessarily had an opportunity to attend a conventional college or university although seek the elevated earning possibilities and a better job that a Bachelors Degree affords. Still other folks might have a degree in one course but would want to pursue a thing they now develop an interest in.

Following the death of their friend, reveals the Daily Mail in their news piece, both 12-year-old girls were then planning to run away together and hide from the crime within the demon spirit’s secret mansion in the forest.

    a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining, and without
    a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
