Other People's Kids

Well its about time for my "weekly blog". I didn't really mean for them to come once a week, but that just seems to be how often I get to do this. Plus I really don't have that much interesting information going on in my life right now. No kids of my own to write about, no plans for kids of my own to write about. Any family is at least an hour from here, so we don't get to visit them very often. Already have the new job. So what else is there to say today....

Well I guess I will talk about yesterday, which was Sunday. My Hubby and I were in the 2y-3y old class yesterday. Can I just say they are a bunch of cuties. Yesterday we had a few new kids in the class. Here is a good question, do kids listen better to other authorities rather than there parents. Ok, here is the reason i ask. Like i said we had a few new kids, well the one mom and dad were like "good luck" when the left there daughter in our care. Mind you she just turned two, but i must say she is sooo well spoken for a little two year old. And not only that she listened to everything we said. Like for example she sat for the whole story time on her spot, she colored her craft, she did her snack. She was as well behaved as any other kid there, and better than some. :)

So later when her mom picked her up she asked me how was she and be honest. So I told her, she was wonderful, sat for the whole story, ect. I think the mom thought i was lieing! :) (and mom if your reading this i wasn't) I just made me wonder why the little girl did so good for the class, when i'm assuming she is not that good for her parents?! Her parents are great godly people and from what i know about them are doing an excellent job raising her.

I guess i just have the magic touch... hahahahaha!

Well, last week was a new experience for me. Working Monday-Friday 8:30-4:30 was very interesting. It was totally differently to be able to leave on time every day! With a nice short 20 minute drive home, I was home by five every night! It was really nice!

I love my little bathroom sized office. I have one window and a door that locks behind me. :) And in keeping with Marie style weather, for some reason it stays nice a warm in my little box. (You won't hear me complaining) They only downside from the warm box, is about 3:30-4:00 it starts to feel nice and cozy like nap time. That is usually the time I do any last ventureing out to the printer or other places downstairs for the fresh air.

And can I say having off on the weekend with my husband was wonderful. Of couse he doesn't get off every weekend, but it was still nice to have two days of whatever time with him. (Mind you we ended up cleaning, and going to a party so we weren't home much, but it was still nice) Not to mention evenings, every evening with him this past week.

Sunday was an interesting day too. Wasn't feeling too great, and we completely slept in waaaay too late. Don't know what happend to the alarm?! But later that day I did a shoot for a family, it was great, didn't take long, and I loved most of the pictures.

Here are some of my favorites: (I hope this works)

Sorry if they are pixally, i was trying to load them small. Anyway, it is nice to have the free time to do my own work for friends and family!

So If anyone wants photos of something or another, you know how to look me up!

Thats it for now, before this become to long to read!

Love ya all!

New Work, New Outlook

Well today I start my new job. Ironically, on Saturday when I left my old job I almost cried. :( I will miss it, at least making the little kids laugh everyday. Not the rest of the junk that goes on. Oh well, I guess that was a good 6 1/2 years. I still hope to do photography of course on my own. I have my background ready to go, but no good lighting system, so if it is bright out, then I can do it in my living room, but if not too bad.

I don't know why I am so nervous this morning. I guess cause I don't want to mess up. But I already got the job, so I really shouldn't be this nervous. I think it is starting somthing new so fast, I am not good at change, and already my brain has said what if this doesn't work out then what. I chose not to listen to that, but i still heard it. Oh well, I guess nervousness is a part of life.

Well I gotta go get ready for work. Whoohoo!

Ok, well here is a little know fact about me. I love to write poems from time to time. They are all pretty much related to what I am feeling, and learning from God. Someday, when I have enough of them I want to get them published. But I don't think that will be for a long time.

As I may have told everyone, I am looking for a new job. Well I had a second interview on monday, and I called on friday because this monday is a holiday. Well I left a message with the lady, and she left me one back. (cause i was at work) She said they are doing a few more interviews this week. But that I am high on there list of people they like. They should have something to tell me by the end of next week, weither it is yes or no.

Can I just say... AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I am not good at being patient. It makes me worry, and create senerios in my head of what i did wrong or the outcome, if i can't get the job, if i do get the job. I have quite the vivid imagination sometimes.

Anyway back to the reason, I started this blog. I was thinking about being patient and waiting on God to provide the best for me and my husband, when i remembered a poem i wrote about patience, now i didn't remember what it said, i just remembered i Titled it "Patience" - So here it is:


- My mind says,
How come I must wait?
Why does it take so long?
I want things now…
I want to know when…
I want to be in control…
- My heart cries

No reply, just silence
Then He says… “Patience
Trust me… I know what you want
But I want something better for you
You must not worry, just wait
It will come in perfect timing
Just wait…”

I don’t think I can do it,
I want to know, I want to control,
Will you help me?
“Oh dear child, I have saved you from death,
Do not worry about life…
I am here, I am listening,
I will keep you strong,
I will be your support,
I will give you patience.
Trust me…
Be patient for my will
Just wait…”
