9 to 5 Work Week

Sorry I haven't blogged this week I've been so tired.  As most of you know I'm use to working part time with mabye 10 hours a week.  Well this week my boss is on vacation and I'm filling in for him for the whole week 9 to 5 and its taken it's tole.  I'm so exhousted I keep yawning every few minutes even though I'm making sure to get at least 8 hours of sleep at night I wake up more tired then I was the day before!

Thankfully tomorrow is the last day, but I won't be able to sleep in any until Monday because Saturday I'm getting up early to get groceries then I have a tentative plan to meet Ryan Carter at Huddle House for some coffee if we get back from groceries in time.  He's the guy I met last week with my Friend Megan and her Husband.  And then of course teaching the Kindergarten Sunday School class and plus Vacation  Bible school starts Sunday night and I still have to get the decorations for our room done!  As my friend berlin would say....  oi vey!  lol

Thanks to Daniel for fixing the web chat page to where is dosn't have to have the active x control and I can now access it at work.  It has kept me sane this week, that and my books and music on IPOD, but mostly the chat room and being able to talk to someone while being cooped up in the office all day with no one to talk to.

In June I'll start teaching swimming lessons again at the Bible Camp on the mountain I'm looking forward to that.  Being there cheers me up because I love to swim and I enjoy teaching others how to do something I love so much.  Its fun to watch the kids faces light up as they master each new skill they learn and when they finnally put it all together and figure out how to move in the water in ways that help them float to make swimming easier.  And by the end of the week they are able to swim on their own without help its a wonderful feeling knowing that they will be able to keep afloat should they ever end up in a large bodie water wether by accident or on purpose.

Plus during all that training they are getting the love and attention they might not get all the time at home and we are able to share God's love with them and to show them that they don't have to be dressed or act a certain way in order to be accepted, that we love them for who they are.  It's wonderful when they happen to recognize me in the local stores and run up to give me a hug and to thank me for teaching them to swim and how to enjoy the water and not be afraide of it.

Then in July the week after the 4th we are going to Pigeon Forge for a day maybe 2 to go to Dolly Wood and maybe some other attractions depending on money and time.  I'm taking my friend Jennifer with me so I'll have someone to ride the rides with because my parents are more into the live shows and shopping then the rides.  So that will be fun.  Then the week of the 15th I'm going to Marion, Indiana for the week long National Fellowship of Christian Magician's Conference!  Gona be spending a week with face painters, magicians, clowns, jugglers, balloon twisters, story tellers, chalk artists, ventriloquists, and puppeteers its going to be a blast!  Then that Friday Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 comes out in Theaters so that will be something to look forward to that weekend or the following week.

Other than this stuff there's nothing going on really, still looking for a full time job with benefits because as most of you know I get kicked off my mom's insurance this October 1st my 26th birthday.  It's hard no one around here is hiring full time unless you are like a welder or factory assembly line worker and I can't do those because I can't tolerate the heat it makes breathing more difficult for me.  I'll keep you guys posted on stuff as it comes along and I have the time and inspiration to blog.

I like blogging but I'm not always inspired to blog.  I don't want to get on here and just be like Hi I spent all day in the chat room bye  I want to blog about stuff that happens or is going to happen and how I feel or think about it.  So I can "get stuff off my chest" and in that way allow you all to get to know me better.  So if its not an everyday read I'm sorry that's just the way it is.  Some weeks I blog more then others it just depends on whats going on and any inspiration it gives me.  So that's all for today, or at least right now.  Talk to yall later Byess!
