I haven’t posted a real update of my life in a long time. So, here is me trying. 🙂
The number one change that I’ve gone through in the last six months or so is that I’m now a foster parent. I think I started around August doing all of my training and everything. I was finally licensed in October and had my first children placed with me on November 18. I have a four year old boy and five year old girl that are siblings. Parenting is more difficult than I thought it would be, but I think that is mostly because of the age of the kids. By the ages that they are, kids are already set in their ways and it’s hard to teach them new routines/ways of doing things. Even simple things like bath time are more difficult. I do enjoy it most of the time. Also….though people tell me I’m a really good mom, I do not see that in myself. We’ll see how it goes.
I’ve been at my job now for over two years. I’m not sure if I want to stay with it or not. I’m sure I will for a while; I have no plans to change jobs. I’ve been taking some leadership courses, so I guess that means they think I’m doing a good job. Eventually I want to move out of Amarillo again, but I have no idea where I want to go at this point.
The kids and I were supposed to go to Disney World this coming Friday, but because my car is having some issues that need fixed – I’m pretty sure we’re not going to be able to. That means I need to decide somewhere else to go. People have suggested Six Flags, Colorado Springs, Albuquerque, and San Antonio. I’m looking at all of them, but I’m just not sure yet. I have to make a decision soon, though, so that I can get it approved through my agency.
I’ve dated a couple of guys off and on in the last year, but none of them really working out. I do currently have a crush on someone. However, it’s not reciprocated so I’m not worried about that.
Alexis, Krista and I are co-leaders of More‘s Singles Ministry – LOL: Laughing Out Loud Singles. We have only a few people who attend, but I really think that God will increase that as we are faithful to Him. I think part of the reason we aren’t growing by leaps and bounds is because all three of us are rather….well, not talkative to people we don’t know. I know that for me, I’m really observant the first few times I meet someone and not so talkative. Which is okay, but it doesn’t draw people in. Oh well; God will draw them. 🙂
I’m not sure what else to post, so I’m going to just leave it at this for now.
Be well and be blessed.
Love and Grace to you,
PS. Here’s a recent photo, just in case you were wondering. 😛
