Taking a Breather...

I don't know where the time gets to... one day it's September 16th (the last time I posted) and now is the 26th of November! No one really lets you know that the older you get, the faster the time flies! So much has happened in the last 2 months, I don't know where to begin!

DH has been blessed to land a job that took him 4 months to get. He's working as a maintenance mechanic for a major chocolate company. It's a super fabulous job and has so many benefits. We are very blessed and excited about this turn of events. He also starts school this next week at a top ten university and the company is picking up the tab for his classes.

I am still working and driving a crazy commute each day. I love what I do... but can't wait for the day that we have enough money saved that I am able to look for something part time or stop working all together. My right knee is still giving me fits... and I don't think I can go for another set of injections. Last time, she (the p/a) thought it would be the last set of shots as there isn't any room for anything in between that joint. It's too close together to even get a small needle in between! (Yeah... that even hurts as I type this.)

We are trying to get things ready for Christmas. DH has the house lights up and on a remote switch... he is loving that! We were going to put our tree up yesterday, but DH was working on the windows and discovered that one window that has been wrapped in aluminum has totally rotted out at the top... so we spent the day doing repairs and finding a glass shop to replace a pane of glass. That all started because he decided to put lights in the windows before the tree goes up. I am hoping to get it up be the end of the weekend.

DH is working overtime this weekend. (It's not really over time as much as making up for holiday hours that he won't get paid for this year as he hasn't been there long enough.) It feels kind of strange to be home on a Saturday all by myself. It's kind of nice since I rarely get time to myself these days. I hope to have a little bit more time to write as I am missing being creative these days. I am doing what I can on crocheting for the local prayer shawl ministry. It goes slow because of all the work I do, and having to deal with the pain in my hands and wrists... no one said getting old was for sissies!

And my newest addiction is Pintrest! Oh... that is total fun for me. I can't tell you often I wished I could pin something that was wonderful or a good idea... and now I have pintrest! If you need an invite, please let me know.

Thanks for reading... be blessed~!
