Prayers Please

I found a couple of jobs that would be AMAZING and where I would be able to use my education and interests, as well as still being able to teacher the little ones.

Please pray for me on this one. Pray that I get either job if it is God's will and if these job's are not in God's plan for me then pray I see God's grace and will.

I Am Sew Crafty

I totally made this skirt last night at my Sew Crafty Houston class! It is by no means perfect but it is wearable and it still looks cute. I am quite proud of it if I do say so myself. :-) I so want to be crafty, but it doesn't come naturally to me, hopefully with practice I will be a DIY genius! I am probably going to do a sewing bootcamp next. Sew Crafty Houston rocks, y'all. Totally check it out if you are in the Houston Area!

No, Not Me!

Since I have been a blog slacker lately, I thought I would do a Not Me! Monday to get me back into the swing of things. Head over to MckMama's to see what other people didn't do!

I DID NOT get a french fry stuck under my stove and then spend 5 minutes with the broom trying to unsuccessfully get it unstuck.

I DID NOT watch a movie on my 4 inch iPod screen with my computer sitting right beside me. That would be silly to watch a movie on the smallest screen known to man when I could have watched it on my much bigger computer screen.

I also DID NOT convince myself that it was Saturday and go back to sleep when it was really Friday. And I was NOT late to work that morning.

And I would most certainly NOT admit that I watched the E! True Hollywood Story of Mario Lopez because that would be a waste of an hour.

And finally, I DID NOT shamefully ignore my blog, Facebook, and Twitter last week. And I DID NOT contemplate shutting them all down. I love all these modern social networking technologies. And I DID NOT feel the pressure to update and I DID NOT feel guilty when I didn't update.

Still Slumping

I feel like I have nothing to say and a lot to say all at the same time. I'm not sure that makes any sense at all.

I'm sending this question out into the cosmos of the blogesphere: does this make any sense or am I crazy, is it possible to have nothing to say while still having a lot to say?

Project 365

One of my resolutions for this year is to complete a Project 365. Which essentially means that I take one picture every day; it is a really neat way to document your life. But here's the thing, my life is pretty boring and I am running out of things to take a picture of. I mean, I do basically the same thing every day so there is only so many choices for me to take a picture of. I am afraid that my 365 pictures will be redundant. Oh well, I am still enjoying it thus far and my photo editing skills are getting much better so I am going to continue on and who knows what the next 324 days will hold.

Oh Boy Not Me!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I did not once again procrastinate on my bible study homework only to do it at the last possible minute again this week.

I did not meet a friend for lunch at noon last week and then just go home after instead of going back to work.

And it was Not Me who had laundry so piled up that it took ALL day to get it done. And there is not still a load of clean clothes in the dryer getting all wrinkled.

There is no way that when I came out of the shower last night, and saw that my cat had ripped open the trash bag and had proceed to chew on a chicken bone, that I just turned around back towards my room.

I did not have to Google "Benzedrine" to see what it meant when I encountered it in my book.

I am not really excited that tonight Secret Life Of The American Teenager comes on. Because I am way too old to watch that show.

And finally it was Not Me that slept late, left late, and got to the office late today and has now proceed to write my Not Me post and done no actual work yet this morning.

Psalm 139

9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart

A No Good Very Bad Day

Ok well it hasn't necessarily been a bad day, but more of a self depreciating pity party kind of day.

I'm so beyond ready to have a job. A real job in my field. I'm ready to get my career started. Its not too much to ask, in my opinion, to want a job. I'm starting to feel useless and its a horrible feeling.

I'm stuck in this holding pattern. I'm ready to start my real life!

I know I need to trust in God's plan and give my job search to Him. But honestly its hard. I have faith but it is the truly letting it go part that I have trouble with. And it is the part where I give the control to God and then need be content in where I'm at, that gives me issues.

Please pray that I get some peace about this and I am able to give it all to God.
