So, I’ve had a rough week. Actually I should say month. After being there almost four years, I am quitting my current job at a childcare center in favor of better hours and better pay. I will now be a cleaning lady and babysitter.
God has been good, giving me these positions. In fact I will be quitting work but not losing any income because I have cleaning and babysitting jobs all lined up. Why am I having a rough month then? Well, in order to have these lovely jobs lined up for when I quit my job, I had to start some of these new jobs already. As in I’ve not only been working my 9:30-5:30/6:00 job ever day I am also cleaning and babysitting in the little extra time I have.
I’ve really been having a pity party over all the extra work I’ve had to do along with being a wife and it’s time to “Get Over It!”
So I decided to make a list of the things I am thankful for.
My Hubby: he has been very understanding of my extra work load and has even pitched in a couple of times to help me out and I didn’t have to ask him to! Doing something for me without my having asked him first, is not usual for my hubby.
Some pretty amazing family: I’m not even going to go into everything I am thankful about with my family, that would take waaaaay to long.
The paid bills: it’s a blessing not to see red every time I do my book work.
Work: in an economy where people are losing jobs, I have work (lots of it)!
The extra income: even though it’s been a bear working so much this month, the extra income is awesome! We are saving for a vacation next Jan and all this extra income is going straight to the vacation fund!
I am thankful for the awesome almost 4 yrs I spent at the childcare center: Even though I am glad to be done with working so much, I will miss my co-workers and all the kids that go there.
A long weekend coming up! I have to work Sat morning, but then we will be at a church conference from Sunday to Tuesday. We will get to see friends that we probably only see once a year or less.
So there’s my list. I could keep going but I have work calling
