I haven't had time to post anything new in awhile. I have some free time down here at my dad's now that I'm through cleaning and can finally sit and write a new post! Life has been sooo busy and I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed!
For awhile now I've been stressing about money and I finally thought to pray and ask God to help me find another part time-job and two days later my cousin messaged and asked if Marita and I were interested in taking over cleaning one of her houses for her! I wanted to say "no!", its a huge house (six bathrooms!) and very fancy so I was/am scared to death, but God said "you prayed for a job and I am offering you one. What you going to do?" and so I said a very unwilling yes.
We cleaned it yesterday (Tuesday) and I was there from 9am to 5:30pm. Marita came after work and helped me finish up. It was hard and overwhelming and I'm hoping/ praying we get better and faster at it. I'm not thrilled with it but you do what you have to do. :)
I work everyday of the week now except every other Wednesday. Its kind of exciting! Along with working I babysit twice a week, clean, and make supper once a week as part of my rent. I rarely have weekends as I'm either babysitting or cleaning on Saturdays. So Sunday is really my only free day. Its exhausting.
I came down with the flu a week ago today and was pretty sick for a few days, I still don't feel 100% and I feel like I'm still in a fog. Hope I come out of it soon. It just feels yucky.
I'm very much looking forward to spending a weekend away this month with all five of my sisters! We haven't gone away together in many years, this will be the first time since I've become an adult! So its exciting! Though I will admit it makes me a little nervous. lol :P
Also very much looking forward to another road trip this year in July, this time to church conventions! They are in Minnesota and we are hoping to drive through my dad's childhood town and see his childhood home! I've never seen it so I hope it works out!!
Also we hope to see Mt. Rushmore and I'm excited about that too! lol
Probably one of my clearest and earliest memories is of Mt. Rushmore. I'm not sure how old I was, maybe 1 1/2 or 2 yrs. I remember looking at the faces, it was getting dark and they turned on lights and I remember watching the faces light up and I loved it! Just a short memory but its so clear in my mind. So I really want to go back there.
Running out of time so guess I'll have to say goodbye.
