Usually i carpool with people from work, but this year i decided to go on my own. Why? Well, next to the Expo Center (where the event was held) is a huge outlet mall. So many were planning on going shopping after the event, but i knew i'd want to go home. Well, as i'm leaving Gonzales, at the last second i hopped into the turn late to hit the mall! I only went to one store though...Old Navy Outlet. I got myself three shirts & Brad one shirt. His shirt & one of mine are what we will wear for pictures this weekend! One of my shirts is a black light sweater & it says LOVE on it. I LOVE that! :) And they were VERY inexpensive! SCORE! I ran to the grocery store after that & then came home. Brad is home sick today - he went to the doctor & has a bronchial infection. I'm not feeling too great myself. YUCK. But i'm cooking us some hot & healthy comfort food tonight.
Anyway, thanks so much to all of you who prayed for me & encouraged me after my post yesterday. It was a tough day, & i always am reminded of my regrets & wishes regarding career & education when i have days like that. However, on days like today, i am reminded that it really is a good job & that some of the horrible things about it will get better. And that this isn't the end.... God has great plans for me & no matter what that means i know that it is all for my good. :) Not to say i won't look for something else in the future... but i can take a deep breath & be content with what i have right now. I was amazed at all the comments here & on facebook & emails sent to me last night & today - FULL of encouragement. It truly meant a lot! HUGS!!
