It's Thursday... I think it's gonna be another busy day. I spent the morning yesterday cleaning up the house and getting Izzy ready for school because I thought the insurance adjuster was scheduled for the afternoon. I came home and looked over some notes I took while talking to the insurance company only to realize the appointment was for thursday. I guess it felt like Thursday yesterday... so I get to do it all again today. There is so much damage, mostly fences. Also the well house is pretty damaged and the trampoline. I noticed there is debris on the roof, but I'm not sure if there is any damage there.
I was looking at the postings I've done for money over the last month and realized I made over $500 last month! That makes it worth it. I know it is annoying when you log into bloglines and I have 16 new posts, but I just want to tell you that if you click on my page I try to keep my current relevant post on top so you don't have to work through all those posts. I do have to put small posts between the others for some of the places and I usually label them "spacers." Really it's encouraging to find something I can do with my limited situation and actually make money which comes in really handy with Amanda's car and everything that goes along with it. Seriously I have been a SAHM for many years now, as the kids went to pre-school etc. I always went to school too because I love going to school! But now I don't have that option, and it is just really nice to feel like I am bringing in a little money. Me, all by myself. I'm not taking God out of this equation in any way, trust me. I know all good things come from God.
Amanda had a little melt down yesterday. She is really stressed at school. I suggested she change her schedule but she is too stubborn for that. I think maybe she is in too many difficult, time consuming classes. For her nothing short of perfection will do so she is very stressed. I am not sure if I should contact her counselor or just let it work itself out.
This is day five without coke! It hasn't been as difficult as I thought it would be. Since this is a week of prayer and fasting I am trying so hard not to be focused on weight. It is hard though. I think the new year just magnifies my goals for health and weight. Next week.
It has been a good week. Many blessings. Now I'm off to get Izzy out of bed. Everyone else is gone to school or work (matt) and it's very quiet. I can only hear the dryer in the distance. I love that sound. quiet. Have a great Thursday.
