working 9-5, just trying make a living...

As I contemplated what I would write about going back to work, Working 9-5 by Dolly Parton came into my mind.  Awesome, that should be stuck in my head for days.  Yay.

Going back to work has been an adjustment for me. I am really enjoying my new job and so thankful for it.  I am really excited to continue to get the classroom ready.  For those of you who don't know, I am now the Kindergarten Teacher Assistant at Destiny Christian Preschool.  For the past two weeks I have been working with Brandy (the Teacher) on getting the room and projects ready along with working with the students in the summer program mainly in the afternoon care. 

It has been a rude of wakening figuring out how to get laundry, dishes, chores, family time, time for Extant and time with Mike all figured out.  I do understand that most families deal with this, and we will figure it out, however right now it is an adjustment for us.  I have been trying to do as much laundry as I can on the weekends and trying to be really good about filling the dishwasher as we use the dishes.  We will get there.

Extant (Our business) has really been growing just in the past week or two even.  We are really seeing how God is starting to pull us out of the pit we have been in.  Oh Thank You Lord!!!  Mike and I were up late last night talking about the potential for Extant and the exciting places it could take us as a family and in the mission we would love to serve with it--helping smaller churches achieve their audio/visual wants and needs. I can't tell you the amount of phone calls and emails Mike has told me about the past couple of weeks when I get home.  Thank you for your prayers, your encouragement and Thank You our dear Lord for providing these opportunities, please keep praying for us as a family, in our business and for the needs that we still have.  Though we have had a lot of contact as a business and some contracts signed, these jobs have to continue and our reputation has to continue to grow.  I can't even begin to tell you how impressed I am with Mike and the God given talents and abilities he has been gifted with to make this business happen and to do his job with such excellence and integrity.

I have more to say.  But I promised myself I was going to start going to bed earlier.  It's almost 1AM and unfortunately this is earlier than I have been going to bed!

Good night friends.  May you be thankful for all the precious moments you have and trust that the not so precious ones are just part of the story, but not the ending!
