I’m back

December 29, 2008

I basically took last week off, and mostly just played around a lot.. I chatted a lot with my best friend, played around on Facebook, watched movies, and just enjoyed myself. But I’m also enjoying getting back into work today. I really do enjoy everything I do.

I’m looking for paying work, and finding it frustrating. I’m just not finding anything. And I’ve been looking for years! I’m not sure what else I can do.

Writing, on the other hand, is going well. I have a lot of ideas coming.

Christmas

December 15, 2008

We are celebrating Christmas with our extended family a little early this year, leaving Wednesday. It is going to be different this year, we are going to meet everyone at our new house. Everyone usually goes to my grandparents. So I don’t think I’ll be writing Christmas.

I think the thing I associate most with Christmas is getting together with family. I love being around my grandparents. I love the time that I getby myself with them. It’s so nice to read in that quiet. I love eating with them alone. Grandma makes whatever I want.

And then my cousins come, and it’s time to catch up, go do special things, watch movies.

I am going to miss not being there, but I’m sure we’ll have fun where we are going.

Mary

December 12, 2008

I’ve been wondering what Mary felt as an unwed mother.

I’m pregnant? Father, why? Why me?  What on earth is Joseph going to say?  What is my beloved going to do? Surely he’ll question my love for him?  But how ccould he? We knew that we wanted to marry long before my menstruation began. I prayed to start so we could become betrothed. Joseph knows other men tried to catch my eye, but I remained true.

Father thinks the baby is Joseph’s. Thank God that Father is allowing me to talk to Joseph myself. Joseph is a man of God. Surely he’ll understand.. Somehow. Lord, make him understand.

What will my friends think when they find out. Everyone will think that Joseph and I have been together. My love and I have always tried to do what’s right in the eyes of the Lord. What will they think of us? 

Thinking…

December 9, 2008

I have not been good about keeping this up. Part of my problem is we’re having some problems with our internet lately, which is no fun.. I also have been busy. I’ve been working on editing a first chapter for someone, hoping to get the job. I’m almost finished with my first homework assignment. Yeah! 

I’m doing more research for my novel. Today I’m looking at how abortions effect the women that have them. To me, it’s really sad. Losing a child is never easy, but when you put that child to death, I can’t imagine.

I’m disabled. I do not know if the Lord will ever see fit to bless me with a child or children of my own. But I would love Him to. Pray about it a lot. I can’t imagine killing a baby.

One of those weeks

December 1, 2008

I think it is going to be one of those weeks where I have things I have to do because I am disabled. I’m pretty sure I have a new aide coming out today to be trained. She’ll come again on Wednesday to do everything. And then on Thursday I have to go see about getting a new wheelchair. Don’t like these weeks, it feels like I always have some other things taking time away from work every other, if not every, week. My hope is that I’ll be able to dig into my work after the holidays.

You may wonder if I hate all vacations. That is hardly the case, I love vacations! But I’d like to feel like I have earned the time off. Having a vacation every two or three months would be wonderful. But every week? 

I am still applying for different editing jobs I see online. It would really be nice to get one and then get on a schedule somehow!
