Culmination Week

Wow, so many things happening this week.  I feel like I’m getting bowled over with everything.  Nothing fancy today, just some updates.

#1 – I want to blog more about this since I haven’t mentioned it but I just finished up 10 days of a Daniel Fast this weekend.  I did it for both spiritual and physical reasons. I’ve never done a fast quite like this and let me tell you, it has been amazing in so many ways.

#2 – This week I finish reading the Bible in 90 Days.  I’ve loved it just as much as the first time. I can not recommend it enough.

#3 – I GOT THE JOB.  It took forever to get approvals but I got the offer on my job this morning and pending drug tests, fingerprinting, etc I should be working full time by the end of the month.  There are going to be changes around here.  And no, I’m not sure all for the better.  Definitely some sacrifices.  However, lots of wins too.  Yay!

#4 – We found out this morning we have our closing for our financing on the addition on Thursday.  Hoping to break ground next week!

Wow, those are huge!  All happening in the same week!  Crazy right?  I mean, this job thing has been in the works for 8 months, we’ve been holding out on the house for weeks and now it’s all happening within days of each other!

In other random news, Emma caught a stomach bug so she is home with me today.  We’re a little tired from being up so much and I think that is adding to what feels like the craziness going on today.

Hope you’re having a great Monday!


  1. I definitely want to hear more about the Daniel Fast! This is quite the week for you! I’m so glad you got the job “officially”! :)

  3. Congraulations on officially accepting your job! I’m sure you’ll find that after a few hiccups, the new routine will fall into place. :)

    I’ll have to check out the Daniel Fast. It’s something I have been wanting to do for a while. Keeping my fingers crossed that we will be able to catch up in person in March and I can get some details from you.

    Can’t wait to hear about the progress on the house and all of your decorating ideas. Have fun. I’m sure Scott will enjoy putting his Handy Man skills to work.

    Big “feel better” hugs to Emma! (And, of course big hugs to Lexi too!)

  4. Amy,

    Wow, you have had a busy week!

    Congratulations on the job – that’s exciting that it worked out!

    My husband & I did a Daniel fast 4 yrs ago (can’t believe it was that long ago), and it was truly amazing.

    You’re such an inspiration!

    Now, I want to do another Daniel fast & read through the Bible in 90 days (which I’ve never done).
