Wanna know what’s worse than being sick? Being sick and having a job interview over the phone.
Things couldn’t have been timed better.
At least I can be thankful it was only a phone interview. If I had to show my face in public right now, I’d die.
I’ve been officially rehired for the job back at the YMCA – I was a little nervous my application got lost or put on the back-burner so to speak, and with the flight prices going up, I wasn’t sure when or if I’d get a call back. But after being assured by a friend who worked at the office that’d if I just waited until next week (which is already this week), I relaxed and resumed my normal breathing pattern.
Which obviously did no good because I’m sicker than a dog and my nose runs faster than my cat…that’s actually not a good comparison because my cat doesn’t run. He lazes about. Well, he runs if he hears me get the food bag out. But he doesn’t run. My nose however…
Never mind. Skip it.
My nose runs. That’s the point.
And I’m going back to Colorado!!! Words cannot express my excitement.
I’m looking forward to going back to work, but honestly, I’ve also shoved it the back of my mind because of everything else I have going on here. It gets complicated from there. I have art to sell, books to write, vlogs to post.
I just shipped off my first ‘sold’ item today from my art shop on Etsy. I just listed stuff a little over a week ago and am tickled to find that someone has already made a purchase!
And for the past few weeks, I’ve been working on putting together a book of poetry; poetry that I wrote mostly in 2016, a bit of it last year and I’ve decided it’s high time I finally format it and get it ready for publishing! Mind you, it won’t actually be published as a real book yet. That’s gonna take time.
Ugh. Always the problem.
But it will be an eBook for Amazon online for download. I’m so excited! I’ve always wanted to publish my works and now I know I’m going to do it! Why the heck didn’t I pursue this sooner?
Currently I’ve been trying to come up with some ideas for the cover, but I’m thinking of using a picture that I drew last summer…
When I go back to Colorado, I plan to continue to write, blog, vlog, and of course, sell my art on Etsy – I really don’t want to stop this time. This year is the year I do it all! If only… Oh, I’m just so tired of waiting, but I suppose it’s an opportunity to be patient and trust that God will handle things. I’m always so worried and afraid that sometimes things won’t work out or that if they don’t hurry up and work out the way I want them to, it’s God telling me nope, wrong door! When in fact, it could be a test of patience and I just need to sit back, relax, and trust him.
Why is trusting God so hard? Has he ever failed me? No. Hasn’t he always been there for me and my family? Yes! Am I sure that he wants the best for me? Absolutely! So why worry your little head, Jennifer?
