But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility... Eph. 2:13-14
Well, here it is! The 100th post! I've needed to put it on here for a while, because there's a lot of information that everyone needs to know about my life right now. So read on.
Why My Life Will Soon Be Upside-Down & Backwards:
by Sarah Weber
Chapter 1: The Problem
Well, it's like this. Dad's job is pretty much toast because they got rid of a shift or something. Great - I had this all down pat and now I'm getting things mixed up. Anyway, only people with major seniority (that Dad used to have but got taken away -> different story) will work. The rest of the workers are indefinitely laid off. Well, what are we going to do?
Chapter 2: The Solution
Mom goes back to work as a nurse, Dad goes back to school to be a mechanic. I will graduate in the Spring as planned and then when Dad goes to school in the Fall, I'll be the one in charge. Of course, I won't do EVERYthing. Mom will only be working three days (or will she be off three days?!) so anyway, I'll have plenty of help. Mostly I'll just be making sure the house doesn't blow up or anything - kinda like glorified babysitting.
Chapter 3: The Enactment of the Master Plan
So Mom started her first day of work yesterday. It went very well. Dad's doing an awesome job teaching my siblings, and I'm getting my work done like I did before. I'm starting to study for another CLEP test (English Comp.), so it'll be nice to have that done. Oh yeah, while I'm helping be a mini-mommy, I'll keep taking my CLEP tests and probably an online course or two, so don't think that I'm abandoning my higher education or anything.
Chapter 4: Conclusion
If you want to do anything for us, then you can pray. Pray, pray, pray. We have sought God's will along every step of this journey and so far everything is falling into place. Pray for me, that I wouldn't be selfish with my time and that I wouldn't botch the whole thing completely. Pray for my parents as they take up roles that they haven't had in a long time. If you'd like to do something else for me, then just try to understand. That's all I ask. Just try to understand why I seem as busy as a mother. It's kinda sorta gonna be that way.
Ok, so on a lighter note, we went to the Symphony today, which was very cool. We're also going to prayer meeting tonight - which means that I need to find something to wear because all that I have left are nice clothes (TMI?).
I hope you have a truly wonderful rest of the day! Adios!!!
OH YEAH! Don't forget to check out the new poll!!! ->
