Doing jumping jacks was the main thing inspiring me to post today. So, yes the story is that today I did 20 jumping jacks, dropped off my phone just now to get the screen fixed--Lord, please provide the finances, again--did the dishes for my family (went home to do that), and worked on calculus for 50 min. I also brought my little sis to dance and home from dance, cleaned the kitchen for my fam and ran two loads of laundry (folded none-there are like already 3-4 loads sitting out to be folded there). I also have run at least two loads of laundry here at work, some my clothes, some her clothes. I cared for and woke up the woman I PCA for. I fed her lunch and dinner, also I got to take a shower, which is wonderful. I wanted to take one before I worked on CALC, to feel better about myself. I saw my brother Matthew on his work break when he came home. It was so wonderful to see him pull in the driveway. He ate some rice while I did the dishes.
He is fun. I basically don't live at home anymore which is sad. But the cool thing is I get to live such a minimalistic life cause I have hardly anything here and most everything is kept at my fam's home. I'm sad to not be at home anymore. I miss everyone. So I go back to visit a lot. I'm only staying like a minute down the road.
Yesterday I went on a walk to the park and I am so sore as I brought four kids with and carried on in a carrier the whole way. My shoulders have that glorious workout ache. I also slept well last night which is amazing. I am horribly unproductive when I don't get the rest (aka naps after work or sleep in general) that I need. My schedule is crazy as I put a disabled woman to bed and have to get her up in the morning and get her on the toilet and sometimes give her breakfast all before I go pick up my brother, take him to school, and get to work by 7:45 A.M. Usually I get there just before 8.
Wow, I can't believe it's been so long since I last posted anything on here. I guess I started a new blog which I can't really continue. The reason for this "terrible" (not terrible) dilemma is that it was titled "My Journey Through 2016" and it is now 2017.
Anyway, it is crazy how fast time flies and I just wanted to record what I did today.
I have to do this quickly because I have loads of Calculus homework ahead of me. The hum of the washer and dryer are currently keeping me company. This day feels good. I have a candle lit. There are many reasons to be thankful, including the peaceful view of snow and a pond in front of me, none of which I had to pay for to look at. I have been greatly enjoying Calculus but I do not know how good I am at it.
I had a succcessfull last semester, getting over an A +, well over 100 percent in my Biology class, which I can only thank Jesus for. I have 9 girls in my life that I get to care for and love and teach, and I can do my own thing (kind of) on weekends.
I am currenly at work. I live at my PCA job currently, as my client's husband left her last fall. I have been taking more shifts and she wanted me to stay nightly so that there is someone with her. It gave me a chance to sort of move out of my family's house which I was in dilemma about (do I do it or not, is it right or not--I had been leaning towards the opinion that it would be bad and rebellious to move out).
I'm not the greatest writer anymore, I feel like my eloquence is draining, but at least I hope one person will read and benefit.
What else do I do with my life? I try to be thankful, occasionally writing out thankful lists. I've had some bad experiences with my dad--I try to live in forgiveness as I too have many sins--and trying to live in honor towards him. I've had many people leave my friendship list due to marriage or otherwise business with starting families. I'm so thankful for everybody in my life.
Mostly that includes the lady I PCA, and my siblings (excluding Nicole who is far away at college at Trinity International University), and the kids I nanny. Sunday's are an exciting time for me to actually see people!! Yay. I get so excited for church. I drive my little brother to school every morning as it is relatively on my way to work and also to church on Sundays. I am mostly always late to church sadly because of my PCA job (she usually asks for a last minute pee so she doesn't pee while I'm gone...) or because I'm not on time, or when I go to pick up my little bro, he takes a long time to still get ready when we should be getting in the car.
I must now get on to Calculus, knowing God has already been letting me do things I was created to do in my PCA job and in nanny-ing. I get to play a part in these people's lives which I am so thankful for. Plus it gives me exercise and I get a chance to pour out Jesus's love on them. I may not be overseas, but I guess Jesus must have some sort of reason for me staying here in MN, laboring away to love on people.
Must get on to Calculus..
Will update later on that...hopefully.
