Day 3

Day 3 of unemployment is coming to a close.  It has been going smoothly and wonderfully.  My worries are increasingly diminishing everyday as thankfully my past has not crept up on me.  I have been making it through the days quite well.  I talked with my sister before my job ended, as she was laid off a few months ago, how she is handling the days to her self.  She mentioned the key is to start moving right away.  Take a shower, don't dottle and start watching TV.  Thanks to her great advice, that is precisely what I have been doing.  Getting up the second I awake, eat breakfast, take my shower, do some work around the house, job search and whatever else needs to be done that day.  I am so thankful that God has been helping me through this, I know I would not be able to get through these days to myself if it were only 1 year ago.  There is some things you know you just can't do on your own, and this is one of them.  It is only by God's precious grace I am getting through these 24 hour days.

I know some of you were wondering how my move went, well it went very well! I am all settled in at my new residency.  The family I moved in with is so ridiculously amazing that I can hardly believe how blessed I am.  I pray they get a double handful of blessings every night.  My room, well lets just say, ever since I left for Mercy, I've been in a room, I couldn't really decorate.  Even after Mercy, I lived with my uncle using his furniture in the guest bedroom.  I decorated a little bit but it still wasn't crying "me".  I went and unpacked boxes that have been stored for two years now and grabbed my old decorations and cute things I've missed.  My room is beautiful.  With a black bookshelf stocked full of good books and DVD's, a black and silver desk decorated with shinny things, Red, silver, black accents through out the room, and my lovely twin bed with my beautiful comforter and sheets.  I've missed my room and I'm so happy it's returned.  Hint* Can you tell I love Black, Silver, and Red????

Thanks to some great friends, I had four helpers show up to help me move.  I can't thank them enough for their great kindness and generosity in helping me.  It took longer than I expected but I heard no complaints.  I can't thank them enough.  It's amazing to me how God is showing me what true friendships are.  The kind where, we can be so outright honest with each other, or jump to the other person's aid with out question.  The kind where they treat you with respect, and value your friendship.  I LOVE having God be in control of things! They work out soooooo much better!

  1. The key is definitely to keep moving, amen to that! The worst thing you can do when you're unemployed is settle.

    P.S. I'm doing a MN/WI blog get together in August. If you'd be interested, feel free to check out my blog and send me an email.
