Nothing Much

Ok. Update on life.

Diet — Not weighing this week so as not to discourage myself into stopping all my efforts. I have had a weird schedule this week that has made preparing all the special stuff hard, so I have been a bit off course. I’m getting back on course today.

Life — I am looking into going back to work full-time after 10 years of mostly being at home with the kids and a few part-time gigs along the way. I interviewed for a professional marketing position a few weeks back, and I pretty much knew I wasn’t going to get the job. But upon going home and thinking about it, I decided a less stressful job that I could leave “at the office” would be more compatible with the raising of 4 children. So I started looking into administrative assistant jobs that would give me a little variety, not too much stress, and no work to take home with me. I interviewed for a such a job yesterday. I would like it to work out, so we’ll see.

Kids–They went to VBS at a church in our neighborhood this week. It was well-organized, and our children were very welcome there. They heard some Bible stories, sang some songs, did some crafts, played around, and overall enjoyed themselves. I appreciated all the work of the volunteers since I directed VBS at our church last year, and I know how much time and effort goes into pulling it off. So thanks Rooftop Community Church.

  1. Y’all are some serious ecumenicals, there- Lutheran school, nondenominational(?) VBS.

    My (Lutheran- but ELCA) parents don’t think much of ecumenism, but then in the ELCA, ecumenism means making nice with the Episcopalians and who knows who else.

  2. I hope you find a very low stress job, I’ll pray for you and your family. I know you’re used to being pulled several directions so I hope just one job will be easier than 3 or more part time gigs. I always went for the highest paying no brainer jobs so I could leave it all behind when I walked out the door to take care of the family.

  3. Lenise,

    It’s funny that you said that. I was thinking the same thing the other day because in addition to Lutheran school, non-denom VBS, and being PCA, the job I interviewed for is at a Baptist church!

    Thanks for the prayers. Taking a little bit less in the money department is worth it if the stress level is manageable.
