So, why blog now? My friend Jess who blogs over at Tune My Heart was challenged by her husband to blog at least twice a week- Tuesdays and Thursdays. I don't know that I will have specific days (my schedule is CRAZY right now) but I do want to attempt the two days a week thing. Today is going to be a catch up and my next post will be a recap of the 5K. Next weekend I am heading to Ohio to run with 15000 of my closest friends the OSU 4 mile race. We will end on the 50 yard line of Ohio State's stadium! I am not anywhere close to be able to run 4 miles but I will finish and the 50 yard line thing is cool and am an Ohio State fan so it's got it all wrapped up in one!
Anyway- so the move- first took me to my parents house and as God so perfectly prepared I ended up getting a job in the next town over so, for a while, since prices are ridiculous for renting, I am continuing to live there. Not where I planned to be at 40 but as God so eloquently reminds me- I have a plan for you- a plan to prosper and not to harm you.
My job- I am teaching Kindergarten. There's a lot of similarities to my school in TN and a lot of differences as well. I will say that I am enjoying it (most days ;) other days I would love to sleep in)- again, probably not what I would have chosen (I took about an 18,000 pay cut) but He had a plan for me.
The new car- I drive a minimum of 40 miles in a day because of work and the miles were racking up on my HHR- after it broke down I finally decided to see what could be done. I walked away (drove away) with a brand new Nissan Sentra and my payments are only a few dollars more. Works for me :) I struggled with the idea of the loan but I still owed a year and a half on the other loan but they gave me a great deal on my trade in which made it all work out. I am grateful for God's provision in that matter as well.
So- there you have it in a nutshell- my last few months- give or take a few things. I am going to continue to work on posting, healthy living posts, accountability posts and a few other things to get myself going again (I even stamped a few cards this weekend- my other stress release - and didn't feel guilty!)
