Moving Right Along

I went to the doctor, and everything is good. I gained one pound in the last two weeks. So I am now up to a whopping 5 pounds that I have gained. So if you minus that from the 18 I orginally lost, I am down only 13 pounds. Everyone keeps worrying about me, but I assure you I eat. I mean I ate so much pizza I made myself sick. My weightloss during pregnancy has always been a mystery.

Something exciting happened today. I might have a new job prospect. I'm not going to give details right now, because we've only talked once, and a lot could still happen. However, it's kind of exciting to me, and has the potential to turn into something really great. I have a friend who is a single mom, and she was telling me that when she started looking for a job, she prayed to God about it. She told him, "God I need a really kick ass job." Which I thought was funny that she said it like that. Ass isn't a bad word, but it's not one I generally say, most especially when praying. But anyways, I kind of started thinking about that, and thought well why can't I pray with that kind of confidence that God will deliver. He delivered that kind of job for her, so why not me? And then this kind of came up, much thanks to my sister, Suzanne, and so I am excited to see where it might go. Anyways, I just wanted to share. Once I know more, I will give details.

Other than that, things are good. My parents have been helping me this week get the house in order. We rearranged my living room, got my bedroom cleaned, and got curtains up. It's actually starting to look habitable, instead of a chaotic mess! I'm doing good too. I have my last week of divorce care on Sunday, and then we're going to eat together. I guess to celebrate divorce...ha ha. No but really, I can't believe it's been 13 weeks that I've been going to that support group. It has been a great thing for me. I am glad I went through it when I did. I started the group looking more like a lost puppy, and now I really have a confidence about myself and the situation. We have all truly been taken care of and been blessed.

On a complete side note, I'm sitting in class right now. Some of these kids conversations are just beyond me. They're talking about Britney Spears. One boy says she has a lot of money because she sold so many albums. He continues to say that he heard she is relapsing. Another boy says, "what's relapse?" And some other boy tells him it's when you go back to drinking or drugs. He knew this information because his mother watches the show "Intervention." The other boys says, "no she's relapsing back into a singing career." I just started laughing at them. These kids are 10th graders. I am just glad these kids I have now are good kids. There are some very scary conversations that I have been witness too. Youth of today...they need help!

I had to catch up on your last few posts, and I'm still laughing at Madi's concern about hair loss. What a girl!
