Always something changing these days
So, it seems that ever since Mike has been out of a steady job, life for me is ever changing. In some ways this has been good (life is never boring) and in other ways it is a bit frustrating. So, I was all ready to start this cleaning business with my little sister Theresa, and I was just taking my time getting everything in order and then we talked to "The Contractor" (my father in law) and he is ready NOW to start building. Well, that changes things a bit. First of all I know we have been way spoiled since we've been here. I could not be more grateful for all that my in laws have done for us. But, let's get real. Someone needs a steady income. The truth is that I have been dragging my feet hoping that Mike would land something premanent, but no such luck. But with the house going forward a.s.a.p. I have felt like something had to give. However, the desire to go back to work full time was just not in me. So, last week when Mike and I attended the temple I had gone with the intention of recieving some kind of answer to wether or not I should try to go back to work full time. After our visit to the temple, I still felt that same "nothing" feeling. However, when we spoke to "The Contractor" a few days later, the urgency was there and also the desire to try to find a full time job. I am grateful because I certainly would not want to have to go back to work full time grudgingly. I know Mike is going to want to work on the house (in between side jobs)as much as possible and I am very thankful that we live right next door to my in laws for the sake of my kids and all their coming and goings. But with as busy as they are with sports these days, I dont think it will be much of a problem. So, there you have it, another change. Me looking for a full time job! So, today I will be attending a workshop at the LDS Employment agency called "The Career Workshop" where they help you prepare to find the best job possible. It is a 2 day workshop 9-4...that's like a full time job in itself. Oh, the life of a 47 year old woman who is "Still Standing"...I'm actually kind of excited...Wish me luck!
