Tuesday's Treats

Well, in 2 1/2 hours I begin my 5 day stint at work.  I hope I make it through the training!  Thankfully I haven't made  any appointments earlier than noon, so will be able to sleep in afterwords.  My plan for when I'm finished writing this is to take a cool bath, relax, then grab a quick bite before I make my appearance at the store.

In other good news, today Tim was officially cleared to go back to work.  He went to his previous employer and told him, which he replied, "so when would you like to start?"  He's going back 4 days a week, and has set a few boundaries for himself.  I'm very excited for him!  Please pray for a smooth transition, as he will most likely only be working one-on-one with the adults with developmental disabilities.  I also hope he will be able to still continue woodworking in his "off-time", as that really helps him to relax.

So, that's my news for today.  I'm still trying to figure out how to not worry or be anxious.  Will this be a lifelong course I am taking?

What kinds of things are you dealing with in your walk of life?  My counsellor has to keep telling me I am not wasting her time.  There is a reason for everything.  Oh, I want to have my life all neat and tidy, yet wonder if I ever will.

Hi Dawn,

You'll do great at work, I'm sure! Even p/t can be exhausting, so just make sure you make (& take!) lots of "me" time until your body adjusts to your new schedule. I didn't realize Tim wasn't working, but I do hope that the transition goes as smoothly as possible for him now that he's back.

I'm slack in my blogging, but the past month or so has been kinda rough: I've been sick, tired, stressed out and generally feeling a bit blue. :P But it'll pick up, it always does. I just need to take some time to do things I enjoy and make sure I'm eating properly, which is always a challenge for me because I love sugar and am not such a big fan of fruits & veggies... :)

Take care of yourself!

Praise the Lord! I'm so happy for you both! May you both be filled with confidence & purpose, as you work! I know you'll both be "lights" where-ever God places you!
I'm going through more "long-suffering" with one sister. Today I was thinking how the Lord left the 99 to rescue the ONE. In my heart, I am so pulled, to try to love her. It hurts so bad. I'm sure I'm not being much of a help to anyone. Oh how I need the Lord's grace & wisdom!
Thanks for sharing, Dawn!
