Update On New Job

Sorry I have not posted but with the new job my schedule has been turned upside down. NOT a bad thing.
I've been having to be at work at 6:30 which means I get up at 4:45 since I have a 45-60 minute drive (which right now I'm loving the "Empty Brain" ride).
Since my normal has been staying up until the wee hours of the morning (almost the time I have to get up now) it has been quite an adjustment.
I started as PRN and signed the papers today to go part time so I will be eligible for benefits now. BIG +.
I will be working midnights (no prob) after I'm done training on all shifts. And I can still pick up available extra shifts would is also a BIG +.
Needless to say I have not been getting any quilting done BUT I can take stuff to work on at work when I'm not busy or I can catch up on my reading.... That will be another +.
Hope to be back soon and maybe even have pictures of something I've managed to get done....

God Opened My Window!

Back in August I lost my job. At that time I put my trust in God. God's plan in God's time. I have always been a firm believer that when God closes a door he does open a window. Considering what impact losing a job can have on your life, it can be hard to wait for him to complete his plans.
Well about 2 weeks ago God opened my window. I offered a PRN position which I did accept (it's a foot in the door). They don't think I will stay PRN for too long (no guarantee) but it's a start. I wanted to wait til it was a sure thing before sharing. And today I attended my orientation (which I get paid for) so I guess it's official.
Thank you God for opening my window.
