Just A Little Update

Well, I have been at work for three days now and it feels a lot longer than that. I would have thought my first day back would have gone by somewhat fast, considering I haven't done that work since August. However, the day just dragged on and on and on and on and on and...you get the picture.

Yesterday and today we were able to go in for 7am, but I got there around 7:15 or 7:30 and worked each day (including Monday) until 4:30. The days are long and do not move at any steady pace, but insist on slinking by slower than cold molassas running up the hill backwards! I'd like to say that the pay will be good, and it will, but a lot of it will go to the government who seems to think it necessary to take such a huge chunk of my cheque for taxes. Oh well, at least I am able to get a week or two of work over the holiday to give me some money for school.

I got my assessment for my student loan for the next semester, and it doesn't look like I will have much money left over for books and such. I fear that I won't have any money, that it will all go towards tuition and grad fees and such. Oh well, I will leave it in God's hands and He will take care of me through all of it...I am trusting Him to provide for me financially again. He's done it before in the past, and I know He can do it again; so I won't worry about it.

Well, I just wanted to post a little update. I'm gonna head out now to work on my knitting (the sweater I'm making my nephew for Christmas) so I can get it done on time. I am going to try to get to bed again early tonight (and hopefully tonight I will actually be able to get to sleep and not toss and turn for a couple hours and end up with only four hours of sleep) because we can go in to work as early as 6:30 tomorrow morning. I don't think I'll go in that early - maybe for 7:30, otherwise it makes too long of a day for me (which I'm not used to), and I don't want to end up just giving my pay cheque to the government...cause if I go in early (to which I do not get time and a half or anything luxurious as that), most of the 'extra' money I earn would only be deducted off the pay cheque for taxes anyway...

I hope you are all having blessed and Christ filled days!

Rock on with the knitting! I have a project half-finished that needs to be done by Sunday!

There's nothing I hate worse than a day at work that drags and drags... well, ok, there are things I hate worse. But not many!

Here's hoping that you get a good night's rest with sweet dreams.

GOD ALWAYS PROVIDES. That's one of my motto's. When you need it, and when HE thinks it is right for you, HE will give it. God Provides. HE'll be there for you Shelley...no question about that. You have my prayers.

As for work, we are quite the opposite. I'm so busy being in the retail industry. Well, hopefully you won't get so bored and that you'll find something to keep you busy...

I know, our government always gets a big chunk of our paycheque! I am not happy with that too. :-P

Sleep well tonight and the nights to come. God bless you and your family on this Christmas Season!

Work is so much like...well, work. That's why I work in Christian radio. The only work in the world with no work involved.

God will get you through! He never let's us down! But you're going to have to work on the way you think about work, or you're going to wear yourself out or bore yourself to death!

Merry CHRISTmas!
