You know, I haven’t actually written here in a while. Yah, I’ve posted stuff; menus, pictures, other random superficial posts. I haven’t talked about what’s been going on with me. I’m not sure you wanna hear it, but at this point, I have to remember this blog was started for me and for my family who are far away.
I’ve spent the last few weeks, well really all summer, but especially the last few weeks, trying to find a teaching job. With no luck! I’ve only had 4 or 5 interviews. Teaching jobs in this is state are very hard to find since we don’t know how to properly fund education. I think I’ve discussed that before, so I won’t dwell on that. Anyway, it looks like I’m going to be substitute teaching and hopefully getting enough work to meet what I’ve been getting in unemployment, which runs out very soon. It’s all so very scary. I just keep thinking that God has a plan for me. But truth be known, I really wish I knew what that plan was, because it’s driving me nuts. I really hate the unknown. Regardless, I’ve had many long talks with Him as of late. So we will see. I know I’ve got people praying for me and that’s a good thing to know that people love me enough to do that. I also have to remind myself that life could be much worse. When you get all wrapped up in your own problems its often easy to forget about what’s going on around you and the fact that there are people much worse off than me. I really should be counting my blessings. It might even be good for me to write down what things I am thankful for. Sometimes seeing something on paper (or in this case typed on the screen) is therapeutic.
So I guess what you (if anyone is still reading) can take from this is that nothing much has changed. I still need a job, so if you know of a teaching job, I would love you forever if you could give me a shout out. Heck at this point, I’ll take an office job. Since Monkey is going to be in school now, I don’t have to worry about childcare for him. That opens up a lot more opportunities, since we won’t have to worry about that $500 a month!
As usual I could ramble on and on, but I’d probably just be saying the same thing over and over, so I’ll shut up for now.
NOTE: This is post is not meant to get pity or whatever. I’m just voicing what’s going on with me, sorry if it bored you.
