Busy Week

I can't believe a whole week has flown by. We haven't had any earth shattering events, just a lot of stuff going on. Alyssa has a lot of school stuff going on and has had a lot of demands on her time. I am very proud to say that she has been handling them very well!

She has had to get homework done and violin practice in and has jumped in and gotten it done with a great attitude. She hasn't blogged, but it is because she has been busy. I continue to hope that she will continue to blog as a release. I firmly believe that blogging is an awesome tool for her continued healing.

Alyssa has had a few moments of bad attitude, but she has used the tools that we gave her and has been able to switch things up and turn her attitude around. I am so proud of her determination!

I am going to school today to have lunch with Alyssa. I have never done this before, so I am looking forward to it!

Job hunting has hit a new low! Twice a week, I check the new job listings for anything that I am remotely qualified for. THERE HAS BEEN ZERO NEW LISTINGS FOR ALMOST TWO WEEKS!!! I must admit that I am starting to get a little worried. I know we will be OK with home bills and responsibilities. What worries me is that keeping and maintaining our summer vacation spot will become impossible. And let me tell you, WE LIVE UP NORTH IN THE SUMMER! We all love to be able to get away for the weekend and I don't want to lose that. So, if you all could just put a good word in with the man upstairs, I am confident that something will come my way.
The pictures are some shots of our labor day celebration up north. If you look close, you can see the lake and one picture has our boat in the background.

Breathing a sigh of relief for Alyssa!

Something will come along but I'll put my order in too.

This is such a difficult time to be job-hunting right now but something will come up for you. Sending lots of positive vibes your way.

And yay for Alyssa and her awesome attitude!

Good luck with your job hunting! This is a scary time because it seems like so many people are either out of jobs, or are in danger of losing their jobs! I hope you are able to keep your summer spot... although some might think of that as a frivolous extra thing you can do without, it sounds like something that is very important to your family!

You are so very worthy! I'll be holding you to that statement and waiting with open arms!!!!!
