It Never Rains...

Such is my life. When we decided to graduate boy a year early so that he could join the internship, I did a lot of hand wringing. What on earth was I going to do with myself? Then the tiny tyrants came and kept me hopping for eleven months. This summer has been spent driving the delightful Miss C here, there, and everywhere. There was not time for wondering what the future might hold.

An offer came my way to work for a ministry that I really believe in. The founders are hoping it will turn into a paid position. It’s something I enjoy doing and I love supporting them. Thus task one landed in my lap. I’ve been writing for as a fitness blogger for a couple of months and enjoy it very much, but it doesn’t pay much (not complaining here! They are paying me to write!) which of course is task two.

I decided to get a paying job since gas and food prices are killing us and found the job at Curves (task three). Hurray me! In between all this I’ve been waiting for the BIG NEWS to be announced. The folks over there are a little behind schedule and although I know a little info, I don’t know exact info. As I said, when I know, you’ll know.

Then there’s the news that came today! Pardon me while I run around screaming and acting otherwise middler schoolerish …

I’ve been invited to intern with WOW – Women on Writing. Again, I don’t have all the details, but this is a huge opportunity and I’m so very thankful for it. Task four; brimming with new and exciting things to learn! Hee Haw!

What I want to know is how I got from wringing my hands (poor me, poor me I have nothing to do) to holy jumpin’ jacks Batman I’m busy!

Funny that.

Way to go! I'm not surprised they asked you to write. I like your breezy style - very distinct from others I've seen.
