I'm broke

We hit that wall again. That wall where we can't possibly make ends meet. That wall where we look at the credit card and try to decide if we should use the credit card or just not eat. Thank goodness that we sometimes choose to just not eat. Thank goodness that we just decide to do without. Those choices are not fun to make, but have to be made. Sometimes they have to be made. I'm proud of us that we choose to live differently, rather than just try to live the same with a different income.

I was offered a job at Anakin's school. Can I deal with three-year-olds (or whatever age they give me) for 6 hours a day? I don't know. But it can't possible be any worse than dealing with the idiots I dealt with on a daily basis when I had an office job. I mean seriously--at least the 4 year olds don't stab you in the back? Well at least not figuratively. Maybe literally. Anyway, all that to say, I told them I would take it. I told them I would be honored to take it. I want desperately for Anakin to be back in daycare and this will give us a little bit of extra money. Also, its 1.4 miles from the house, so I can walk, or ride a bike. I would only have to take the car when it rains or its too cold. So that will cut back on our costs tremendously.

So, anybody want to give me a bike?

Girl, I am feeling you on the broke thing. I'm excited for your new job, and how cool that it's so close to your house! If only you'd needed a bike about a month ago. My mom put one in storage & I'm sure she would've given it to you. It's in Acworth, though, and they're in Missouri. ;o/ I'll see you on Sunday. Chris & I are doing the membership class so we'll miss Sunday School for another couple of weeks. We miss y'all!!!

Well, know that you are not alone. Walls affect all of us. At times you have to trust God to take care of you. There have been many instances when we have been up against where we have trusted in God and got a large breakthrough. I will keep you guys in my thoughts and prayers.
