Small Success Thursday - Time Change


Still adjusting to the time change. I like that it is a little light while driving to work. But I still want to crawl into bed about 8 PM.

Still no word on if my contract job is ending at the end of the month or not. The account manager was going to pitch me as a flexible resource who can work a few hours a week or up to 40. I figured I need about 60% of my current take home pay to cover our obligations. I have put it in God's hands to determine what is best for me and my family. But it is hard. I try to keep my eyes open for actions to take. This is pretty stressful, but I am mostly keeping my cool.

I asked for help. My parents wanted to visit some evening when I was taking care of my Grandson. The were going to drop off Hubby's birthday gift. Well, Hubby was going to be out of town Tuesday, The 15 year old needed to be picked up at school at 5:00 and the Grandson arrives at my house at 4:30. So I asked Mom and Dad to be here by 4:30. My Mom even brought dinner. They all had fun playing together.

My big success is that I finished a twin-sized quilt. While not thrilled with one of the fabrics, I like the quilt overall. It has a Comic book-theme. I work on it in fits and starts as I steal the time. I plan to give it to my cousin when she receives a multiple organ transplant. Her favorite super heroes can help her stay strong.

Maggie, the quilt is beautiful and will light up her day.

Good for you asking for help when you need it.

Hoping you hear something soon about your job situation.

God bless.

Praying for your job situation. Wow, the quilt you made is amazing! I agree with you about the time change. Ugh, my little ones wake up at 4:30/5ish and I'm so tired. God bless!
