Today has been the best day for a long time. I can soooooo tell that I am living my life right. Ever since I moved in with my sister, Nichole, things have just fallen into place. I got a job working the playground at Oquirrh Hills. This morning my sister got a call from the school. See Nichole works there as a Title One Teacher Aide and helps the Kindergarten teacher do certain things. She also helps with reading and helping the kids with sight words, etc. Well she found out that one of the Aides was quiting in December and if I had a certain amount of College credits or take a test by the district, I could have this job. Anyway....back to the call. It was the lady in charge of the Aides calling and telling her that an Aide quit and that if I got my transcripts I could start working that position. So I got online and after several hours, drooping the girls off at the babysitter, and going to work for playground duty I got them I ran them over to the lady that does the hiring and she thought I had to have 90 credit hours and if not I would have to take this test. I had 88 hours and the test that I would have to take is $40.00 dollars and I know that I don't have that money and I would have to wait. Waiting for that, I might lose the chance for that job. Well come to find out that the credit hours of 90 were for quarter hours not Semester hours. Well since I had 88 semester hours (more than two years of college) I got the job. I was soooo happy. Things have fallen into place and I know without a shadow of a doubt that I must be living right. I have always known that our Savior works in mysterious ways and by all of this just falling into place proves to me that He is there; hearing and answering my prayers. I am so thankful for that and for the opportunity to be a member of this great and wonderful plan that our Heavenly Father has created for us. I won't start the Title One Teacher Aide until Thursday or Friday, but that is okay. So I go from working one hour to five hour days. I said to my sister that this is the next best thing to teaching, since that is what I went to school to be. I can not wait....I am so excited. It has been a long time since I last worked, but doing something like this is like a dream come true!!!!! Thanks to everyone who has helped out in this new adventure that I have taken. I know that it may not always go this smooth, but with all of you and your help, I know that I can get through it.
It has been a little over four years since I had a job. Not like that is a big deal or nothing, but it is sometimes hard to get back in the groove. I started working with the Granite School District as a duty for the playground. Hopefully in a couple weeks I will be adding more hours. They are trying to find some ESL hours for me to help out the spanish kids and in December I will be full time. I will then go onto a Teacher Aide which works 9 to 3. I am way excited. I went to college to become a teacher and then stopped when I couldn't handle bothe full time work and full time school. Then I got married and had kids....look at me now back to the grind so I can support myself again and my girls. I had a good friend tell me how strong I was to be doing this, but today I don't feel so strong. I konw with all my heart that what I am doing is right and I know that I wll have good and bad days.... I will be glad when it is all over and I can move on!!!!!!!
I decided that you all should see where I have now settled. I am so thankful for family and a place to call home. Without them I am not sure where I would be, so thank you from the bottom of my heart to all that helped me get here. I love all of you soooooooo much and am extremely thankful that I have you in my and my girls life!!!!!
So we have started baby food with Brooklyn. She loves it, if you can't all ready tell. We had sweet potatoes. Needless to say she is growing like a weed. We have gone with the beech nut because I heard it has that DHA or something like that in it, which is to help with her eye sight and other stuff. An extra plus is that it is the cheepest at Walmart and Smiths. Speaking of Smiths, the have this baby club and every time you earn 200 points, they give you ten dollars to spend on whatever!!!!! Her reflux has got a lot worse and we were in o the Dr's. today. They increased her medication (previcid (sp)) and put her on another(Reglan). I was shocked because he never or hardly ever prescribes it. We will have to see how it goes. I pray that it controls it alot more or really helps fix the prob., I am so tired of five to six outfits a day and that laundry is piling up. Oh well, "that's what moms are for" right!!!!!
The girls and I have finally left Bountiful. We are now at my Sister Nichole's house. I feel pretty good about being here and now with everything I have that what I have done is the right thing. I have prayed and counselled with the Lord and get the biggest confirmation that this is right. I am tired so I am going to sign off for now, I'll blog later with pics and our new adventures. LOL to everyone!
Wow, about me huh! I am a mom with two beautiful girls; Bethanie 5-year-old and Brooklyn is almost 2. I love the winter snow and the summer thunder storms, sea turtles, watching storms come in from the mt. tops, the mtns. and camping. Things I love: my girls, music, fam and friends!
