Announcement!

Well life has taken a big change. In my last post I talked about my interview at Monterey. Well last week I had another job interview that I hadn't told anyone about. I was hoping that it would work out that Monterey would be looking for someone pretty soon, but that's just not the time table they're working on. So yesterday I was offered a job at Coldwell Banker: MegAmerica Mortgage as a loan processor. I am working with Zach Galbraith. I started today. Some of you are probably thinking, "what?" Well this wasn't an offer that I could refuse right now. Life will be harder and I will miss all the time I spend with my kids, but Nathan and I both feel that this is a very good decision for us right now. I really am so at peace with our decision. That is why in my last post I mentioned that I knew it was all up to God. I knew this was a pending decision and so I just knew that this would be something that God would work out for us for the best!!!!

In some ways it is harder for me, b/c I don't feel that I have many in my "circle of influence" that work full time with kids, and I don't want anyone to feel sorry for me, b/c I don't feel sorry for myself. I am so wonderfully blessed. I have a great husband, great kids, and a great life that God has given me. When I worked at Carillon for 4 days in February I was miserable. They gave me the most insane hours, horrible pay, and a crappy boss. Fortunately at Coldwell Banker I am surrounded by Christians who support each other and support family life. They have a devo every Tuesday morning and when I was having my interview with Rick Canup (the owner of Coldwell Banker) he wanted to know how involved I was in church. I was so shocked that he even asked!

I really like my job. Basically I am Zach and Gina's assistant. They originate the loans, and I put them together. If you're a home owner you know how much paper work goes into a loan. Well I'm in charge of getting all that and basically being extra anal. When I was in college I worked at Wells Fargo Financial and got experience doing loan processing there. I have to admit I am very rusty. But eventually I will get back into the swing of things.

Nathan stayed home with the kids today. He cleaned the WHOLE house and made dinner. I was able to come home and eat lunch with them and be back at 5p.m. Kyle didn't even act like he missed me! I know this will be a change for us, but I have to admit....I really enjoyed the day. I know it can be easy to get into "mommy wars" about if you should stay home or work, and I have been blessed with 4 wonderful years at home. I would never ever trade that! God loves my children more than I do and that is hard for me to imagine, but it's true! I know he will always keep watch over them. I am going to have someone come to our house to watch the kids, and Nathan's mom is going to keep them for a while when they get here. (in 1 week!)

Okay that was a really long story...I wanted to add a prayer request in. Chrissy's mom isn't doing very well. For those of you who don't know she has a brain tumor and they've know about it for some time. The other day her mom started having vision problems and went to the doctor and she has a new tumor. At first the old tumor had started shrinking but now it is causing problems. She is having brain surgery this Wednesday. Chrissy and Brian's baby is due May 1st. That is a hard situation to deal with by itself, but I can't even imagine with all those pregnancy hormones what it is doing to her. I would be a basketcase. Please pray for their whole family and that they may all have some peace about the situation.

I apologize for how long this was, I hope you made it through to the end!

I hope you enjoy this job. There is nothing worse than having a job you hate, especially when you would be away from your kids.

That's great Larissa! I hope it works well for you. Although staying home with childen can be the biggest blessing I also know it can be a big financial strain. I wish you the best!

WOW! Well I guess Congrats is in order. I know Zach and Denise pretty well. I hope all that goes smooth and that you really enjoy it. I am so glad to know you are at peace about the whole situation. I guess I will not be seeing you at school this next week! Will I see Madi? I will say a prayer for your friend Chrissy. I sure am going to miss you.

I'm so happy for you, Larissa!
Please tell Zach and Denise hi for me - there's nothing like working in a Christian environment.

That is wonderful-congrats!! Zach and Denise are awesome people-I am sure that will be a great work environment. What a great attitude you are having, too-I know that it is hard to leave your kids every day, but that is awesome that you are leaving everything in God's hands and trusting Him to take care of all of you. He IS in control-I have to remind myself of that fact constantly!! :)

I will be praying for Chrissy and her family-what a difficult situation.

Hope the job is going well-God bless!!
