BUSY, BusY, busy.


I just wanted to let all my wonderful fans (yes, all four of you) know how amazingly good God is when you just start trusting him!

So I have literally been so busy lately! And I'll tell you that there hasn't been much social interaction with all of my 'business'! I actually think I don't know how to socialize anymore because it has been so long, and I have noticed that when I do socialize I have a lot of problems with it. I forget how to speak. Literally, I stumble over the easiest words and end up spitting over EVERYONE. I also cannot seem to remember how to start a conversation and keep it going. It actually is quite tragic. I think if you saw me when i was in these social situations... You would think that I look like a deer in the headlights. Yes, like that one right up there to the left. In these social situations I actually grow hair all over and some antlers, very suddenly ( ok. not really. it's a joke. LAUGH!)

Anywho, I think you get my point. I have not had much social interaction this summer, because I have been busy doing other, more important things. These things are Math... BLEH. and Packing.... urgh. Sounds like a fun summer, right? Well, I think it is just that I have chosen to use my 'free time' in ways such as sleeping until 10 AM, and that is exactly what I am doing this summer to enjoy it. From 10 AM until I finally drop from exhaustion... or close to it, I am busy, busy, busy. Packing is probably the slowest and most tedious thing... EVER... that is, OTHER than math. Ok. I think you get it. I am B.U.S.Y. Although it may not seem like it, these two things can keep one VERY occupied, for a VERY long time.

This leads me to what I wanted to tell you... So in May, I had several interviews for a summer job. One was for three boys and I would be working about 9 hours three days a week. I was really hoping to get this job... but I ended up not getting it. Another interview I had would be babysitting two kids for about 12 hours each weekend... maybe more... maybe less. This is another job that I did not get, which was a huge disappointment. Another job that i was interviewed for was to watch a 9 month old girl and her cousin (most the time) while their mom's went horseback riding a few times a week. I did get this job... and I babysat for them once... Called about 4 days later to get a set schedule, and she never called back. As you can see, for some reason I just wasn't getting any regular jobs.

Right now, I am so incredibly thankful I didn't get those jobs. I never realized that math would be so time consuming. I also never realized that packing could be so much work. I will admit that although I was upset about not getting the jobs then, I am so happy that I didn't get them, because if I had, I really wouldn't have the time I need for math, and I wouldn't be able to pack and get things done.

I believe that God was really looking out for me when He let those jobs fall through. He knew that this summer I would be busy enough!

I am very content with the occasional babysitting jobs that I HAVE gotten, and I know that coming in August I will have a wonderful job waiting for me!

I met 2 of the 3 boys whom I will be nannying, and they are the most precious little things ever. I know I will be wrapped around their little fingers very quickly!

This is encouraging. I too have been very busy, with work (which automatically consumes half of a week, but I've been doing it for two years, so it barely counts anymore)but also every other day. Granted much of it is obligatory socialization.

More importantly I too am learning to trust God more and more.

I'm encouraged, thanks for Blogging.
