Last week was hard — and it was easy to complain about the future and lose sight of what we’ve been working towards and just lose hope.

Now I’m not saying that recent developments have cured us of those fears, but it’s eased my mind a tad.

I recently accepted a long-term sub position for a kindergarten class. While it’s going to be an adjustment to every day subbing, I think it’ll be a great opportunity! And it’ll take care of some of the worries I had about getting enough sub days in May to pay the June bills. 🙂

On the car front — we’re finding that we can get around with one car if need be. We are still undetermined as to what to do with the other. We wanted to get some second opinions on pricing — and we’re getting A LOT of different numbers, none of which we particularly care for. So we’ll see… but at least I’m not dreading the situation. Since I’ll be at the same building every day, and it’s in a central location that won’t make it hard for Brian to take me/pick me up on his way to whatever job he has.

Things have been all over on the job front. They’re starting to look up, but it’s also just hard to tell what will happen. I won’t get into too much detail now, but just send us positive thoughts and prayers!

Every day is an emotional battle… there’s a lot of things out of our control. It’s been a trial to remember that the one thing we CAN control is our reactions to a situation. And slowly but surely, I think we’re making strides in having a positive attitude about where our lives are going…

Like I said in my last post, I’m thankful EVERY SECOND of EVERY DAY that I have my best friend and the love of my life by my side every day.
