busy busy

Well, life just keeps moving. What is new for me to tell you?

I taught my 2nd breastfeeding class last Tuesday. It went ok. I felt more confident, but I still have a long way to go. I could use a swift kick in the rear to get going on my certification stuff.

Emotionally its been quite a rollercoaster lately. Actually, since July I've been feeling a real vacuum around me...a leadership vacuum. The people in spiritual leadership over me keep getting reassigned in one way or another. There are a few left, and I'm scared to lose them.

"You reached me just in time. I was beginning to feel confident again" is kind of my theme lately. Its a quote from Potshots by Ashleigh Brilliant.

Speaking of...Rog has an interesting dilemma. In order to keep his assistant at work, he has to take a pay cut. This is extra duty pay that he's been getting for his work over the summer. If he chooses to cut the assistant, he takes on all of his duties. Needless to say, he's doing what is best for the school and his friend. I know its the right thing, but it is difficult for sure. We were making a real effort to pay off some of our debt in the past few months, so I'm discouraged about losing income that could help with that. I guess the benefit to it all is that he will get comp time for his work over the summer. Maybe he'll get to take Fridays off for a while next year or something.

I've had lots of posts running around in my head, but I haven't moved quickly enough and now they are stale.

Oh, we got a new washer and dryer today. I am glad to be able to laundry at home now instead of lugging to the folks or folks-in-laws and feeling like a college student again. I loved college, but the laundry part wasn't something I had hoped to go back to.

We have a big party weekend coming up. Shepherd for my nephew (and Roger's uncle and me) for the March birthdays for my side.

I guess I should go check laundry again. I might get us caught up by Friday if I try hard enough.

Hooray!!! I know that some think it silly but the thought of being able to buy a new washer and dryer and have it in my home makes me giddy, so I am REALLY happy for you! Keep on keeping on...
Oh come and let us sing to the Lord;
let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
For the Lord is a great God,
and a great King above all gods.
Psalm 95:1-3
