Once again, my work schedule has changed.  This Monday I was informed I either needed to start full time next week or they were going to find someone else for my position.  Oh, and that my position was being totally changed from what I've been doing (scheduling, misc. office duties).  Now I'm going to help the sales team by creating bids and making sure that customers are receiving their bids and happy with them.  I will also be helping with making sure invoices are being created on time.  Super bummer.  I was just getting into the swing of being a stay at home wife 4 days a week. Mark and I discussed it for a few days and we decided in the long run we needed me to take the full time position, it will help us pay of our debt faster and the more money we can save now the better, after all, I'm trying to convince Mark that we should start on trying to have a kiddo next year ;)  (not sure he is falling for it quite yet, but we're getting there, hehe).

Anyway, next week I start full time again.  I'm not very good at full time jobs.  I get tired of them quickly, I start complaining a lot, I start feeling unloved because I'm not spending as much time with Mark, etc...  You can probably imagine all the problems that I could come up with from working full time.  So I would really appreciate any prayer that you could throw out there for me.  I understand that right now this is something that I need to do, but I really need to have a better attitude about it and be thankful that I HAVE a job. 

I'm also doing a 'Read the Bible in 90 days' plan.  So far I'm in Judges and its been an awesome experience!  I can't wait to finish!  But, I feel like I might get distracted because of not having all that extra time in those two days to do my reading...I could use prayer to stay on track with that as well. 

Lastly, I'm a newly wed (duh, its all I ever talk about).  And the second month of marriage was a tad bit harder than the first (what, you should admit it too!).  So I think I've adjusted my attitude and outlook on that already, but sheesh, its a constant effort.  Mark (I'm sure) would appreciate prayer for me in this aspect of my life too...My birth control pills, living with a man, and marriage-y things have my hormones and emotions all over the place...I'm slightly crazy.  But I love my husband and I want him to be happy and for him to know that I'm happy...and I think I will always need prayer for that.  I didn't intend for this post to be a 'pray for me post'...but I guess I need it more than I thought :)

Thanks and Love!

i get to be a stay at home wife.. 4 days a week :)

LOVE my stay at home wife days.  I get so stinking much done!  Well, all past 10 am usually, before 10 is my i'm home all alone and want to do whatever I want before I start my wifely duties time.  So that lately has been consisting of me sitting on the couch, playing Tiny Wings on my phone while watching old Grey's Anatomy.  Do you know how much better the old Grey's is?  Its sickening really how bad this new stuff is, but I can't help but watch it anyway...its an addiction.  A very sad pathetic addiction. 

Anyway, I have Tuesdays and Thursdays to be a stay at home wife (along with Saturday and Sunday), and once I get started cleaning / organizing / doing, I really can't be stopped.  Yesterday I pretty much cleaned the entire house and drove to McMinnville AND gave my husband a not so great haircut.  I vow to never do it again, but he thinks I can only get better...We'll see.  It took about 2.5 hours for me to do it, his normail haircut is barely half an hour. 

But I love being at home, making sure everything looks nice for when Mark comes home.  I love feeling like I accomplished something and that I was useful.  :)

This weekend Mark and I plan on going to Coos Bay to visit a little bit for Mothers day.  Being married and having parents that live in the same town is super tricky though, because we both want to spend time with our families, and our families want to spend time with us, but we don't have enough time to spend down there.  Blah, it makes my head hurt to think about.  It also makes me slightly nauseous.  ick.   I hope everyone has an enjoyable Mothers Day weekend!
