Looks like I’m late this week. Yeesh! It was a busy week. At work. At school. I’m excited and tired at the same time. Did I mention I signed up for WordCamp. I’m so excited. I’m anxious to see how it all turns out. I just finished week 4 and I have 2 weeks to go for this semester. It is going fast. I don’t have as much to say as I thought I would. I’m really tired again. It is time for a nap. I will try to get more on later. For now. Good night.
I registered for WordCamp! I can’t believe I am actually taking all the steps to change my life. Every few days something will happen to remind me that I am supposed to be doing something else. Right now I don’t even question why, other than because I’m attempting to be obedient, I’m experiencing favor.
Anyway, I began this simply to say, I reached out to others to get help learning how to use WordPress. There is such a rich community here. I’ve been to a couple of meet ups featuring WordPress. I’m amazed at the number of people my age and older that are really into WordPress. They are at all experience levels. I am going to actively participate in these groups until I can also contribute experiences of my own. Once I’m finished with school I will visit more.
I knew I’d go to the camp as soon as I heard about it. I signed up for the mailing list. I even took time off work. Once I read the bios for the presenters I got excited. I’m thinking, “Wow” there’s going to be a lot of great information made available. This morning the sessions were posted and I was BLOWN AWAY! . But when I read the descriptions for the various sessions and saw how the event is organized I quickly put in the request for another day off. I figured…just in case. This afternoon I received the email announcing the private presale of tickets for the event. Ironically, I put in a leave form for 2 days. I’d already put in for a day off from work to attend a function with my parents later that evening. I took the second day after reading the event descriptions. I bought my ticket. Only one. I haven’t even told anyone yet…except you I guess. I’m REALLY excited.
God keeps presenting resources to guide me in the intentions he allowed me to establish. Wow.
Wow! It has been a week. I literally just finished week 3 of school. I can’t believe I am half way through this semester. I’m actually doing ok, too. I’m not nearly as overwhelmed as I was that first week. I’ve even been able to enjoy some things. I’m staying faithful at work…as much as I can I’ve been controlling my words. I’m grateful this week that God has seen fit to take the small stuff away from me. I don’t have to feed into the negative stuff. I can just relax and do what is mine to do. In the irreverant words of Yolanda Adams, the battle is not mine. It’s the Lord’s! And I thank him for that.
I praise God for my husband. He is such a wonderful supportive man of God. He is a role model and an example for other men to follow and I’m proud he is the head of our home. This week the Pastor put out some information I strongly consider confirmation. We are the living testimony of the goodness of God. We are the example I had when the boy and I were Hagar and Ishmeal. The healthy family I so desperately wanted for us. I am grateful to God that I can provide that testimony. That is why it is so important to me to be obedient.
I went back to the gym today. It was amazing. I did only an upper body with 20 minutes of cardio. I was mostly sedentary at work today. I had a lot to get done. Tomorrow I won’t have my help so I anticipate walking around much more. I anticipate being sore in a day or so. I worked shoulders and arms exclusively. Wednesday I will work legs and Friday I will work chest and back. On Saturday I’ll try hot yoga. It was a good week.
Tomorrow begins week 4 and it’s Mardi Gras!
In my profession the week ends on Sunday. Wow. How ironic? I generally consider the week to begin on Sunday. Anyway, It’s been what? A week? Since I last posted. A lot has happened. I made it through my 2nd week of school. Tomorrow morning starts week 3. My first week back in school I was literally a basket case. I was tired all the time and afraid I just might not be cut out to finish something I’ve wanted for close to 20 years. I exercised my final dance with procrastination. It was HORRIBLE. In the end I was certain I had not put my best foot forward so to speak. In the end. I passed my first paper. I feel so much more relaxed this week.
Our bible study meeting went really well. I was proud of what we did and how we handled it. The house looked amazing. At some point this week I went from being a day behind in my course work to being a day ahead. That felt AMAZING! Oh and last week’s colonic was extremely productive, lol.
I have quite a bit more to say but right now, I won’t say it. It is 9pm on a Monday night and I still need to call my mom. One of my childhood friends died last week. She was a year older than me. It certainly puts your mortality on blast when something like that happens. I’m sad but I know it will be ok. Good night.
