If I haven't mentioned it before, I will now: I.Hate.January. We have only had a few good moments this month, and I had to really dig deep to find it within myself to enjoy those times. Andy was laid off on the 13th. Just like that. We are back to square one, and seriously, at the moment, we are income-less. We are part of that statistic. Unemployed. Scared. Panicking. Grasping at straws.
I am still in school, and my classes are on Wednesdays. I am in school for eight hours after spending three with second graders in the morning. It is a long day. I am also taking a math class online. I am enjoying it all, but right now it seems like I will be in school forever, when where I really need to be is done, with a degree, so I can get a job.
The kids are all good, which I am very thankful for. The week before Christmas, I got sick, and it stuck with me for over three weeks. Thankfully, Little Man and Girly Girl did not get sick, and Mr. Smarty Pants got over his sick days fast. Andy did not get sick either. I am thinking that for me, it was the fact that I was done my semester, and the relief of the stress let my immune system down. It is very cold here in Central Maine, bitter cold.
Only a few more days left of this wretched month.
I know that God has a plan. I've said that a lot before, haven't I? I am reading the book The Power of a Praying Wife, and it is really helping me with my own prayer life as well. I talk to God all day long, sometimes just asking Him "please God...hold my hand right now."
We had a Realtor come in and look at our house last Friday, and now we are waiting for his appraisal. We just want to be completely aware of our options, and selling before foreclosure would be our preference! I don't know, it's all a blur, and I some days I feel like I am barely above water.
Lucky for me, time with Andy is something I absolutely love. We are together a lot right now, as he is looking for another job. We pray together daily, and are making sure that we put each other at the top of our priority lists' each and every day. He makes me so happy. Just three more months, and we we will be Mr. and Mrs. for 20 years! He is my life.
So that's it for now, sorry I sound so depressing! Keep my family in your prayers!
