Ya’ll today was kinda a big deal. In so many ways. Wanna know why?
I applied for my job today. Not A job, but MY job. I’ve been a contractor for the bank for 10 years now but because of new rules, I can’t stay a contractor. So we’re looking to pull me into a full-time position. I will be upping my hours from 30 to 40 and some other minor changes but I’ll be doing the same thing with the same group. But as you might not expect, there is a lot of red tape to get MY job even though I’ve had it ten years. I even have to interview. So yeah, I applied for a job today.
It’s official. I made the call to DSS today to schedule our orientation meeting. I actually said to someone official “we’d like one child, a 3-5 year old male”. Part of it felt a little icky, like I had just called a catalog order in but ya’ll, when I think about the fact that I just made the first phone call to find my son that is not under my roof, well, it’s a beautiful, big deal.
The bids for the houses should be coming in today. So excited to get that ball rolling. And by the way, I think we settled on that last floor plan. It feels good after staking it out outside and staring at it for a few days.
Somewhat less major, today we also had some car issues. We took the van in for a recall and asked them to figure out why our engine light kept coming on randomly and Honda wanted to do $2700 worth of work on it. Unfortunately $1500 of that is probably legit work that needs done.
Today feels like 2011 is going to be quite the ride.
Also before I go, you just have to see this video about the Blood:Water Belt. Sarah, Amanda and Mandi had it at Blissdom and it put me in tears to think of all God has done with just an ounce of obedience. All the ladies that have it mean a lot but this is the first I’ve seen anyone talk about it with as much passion as Dani and I have about it. Three more ladies and we have over $2,000 raised! Consider joining?
