I wanted to participate in the day in my life this month to show that life does not always go smooth and sometimes we have to do different things for a season. Right now my life is not in the place either my husband nor I want it to be. We are both committed to doing what we have to and get our life straight and back where we want it to be.

A few years ago some bad financial descisions were made. They snowballed out of control until 20 months ago I had to take on a part-time job. It was the first time in 14 years I had worked outside the home. As things got worse I took on a second part-time job. This summer we hit rock bottom and we cut everything down to the bare bones. God truly blessed us and has given us opportunity to work and fix things. It's hard though. Sometimes I get sad. I know though that I am not in this alone. God is watching over me and my family is all working together to get our life back on the path we should be. I just want to encourage other women that sometimes we go through periods we have to do things we don't want to, but to keep striving and have a goal. Keep praying and God will bless your efforts.

Friday I got up at 3:30. It was hard to get up as I had just gone to bed at 11:30. I pushed myself to get dressed and washed my face with cold water to wake myself up. Captain Kitty was helping with the paper routes today so I got her up and we were off.

It was drizziling. Thankfully, it didn't rain hard until after we got home at 7:00. I ate some breakfast and went back to bed.

At 10 a.m. I woke up and could not go back to sleep. Our little bee keeper was already up. I got dressed (again) and ran out to Sam's. I needed to pick up the General's prescription and a few items. When I got hom CK was also up. We ate lunch and I had to work on some paper work for the routes before starting my other job. We don't do school work on Fridays because that is one of the General's days off. Right now though he has taken on a part-time job in addition to his regular job and he was at work this day. The children now help do the housework I can't get done during the week on Fridays. I have such great children!

Before I went to my full-time job the General called and our eldest ask him if he would come pick him up from college to come home for the night. The General ask me what I thought. I told him it would be great! Then I walked the long commute to my full-time job, down the hall to my sewing room/office.

I love my new job. I work from home for a company taking calls and putting in orders on the computer for customers. I get to walk out of my "office" and join my family during the evening for my breaks and supper. It is an upbeat job and I just find it fun.

When my eldest got home he came in and hugged me and then the boys went off to work on the truck that had some broken parts.
During my supper break we all got to eat together and then our eldest went out to the movies with some friends. The youngest two went off to watch a movie. The General was watching some other show. I went back to work.
At 10:30 I got off work and went out to spend some time with the General and unwind before going to bed. Everyone else had already gone to bed. At 11:30 I went back to bed to repeat the day again tomorrow.

Sew Long for Now!
