ugh i seriously cant catch a break anywhere!
so my new job at uw hospital is wonderful and i love it!!!! I still have more training to do but everyone there is making me feel welcome and has been so helpful. so thats about the only good news i have for you.
A couple weeks ago when i was at Midwest horse fair, i found my saddle i've been saving up for. except they didnt have it in my horse's size :/ they said i could order it but it would take 8 weeks to make and shipped. I decided to look other places and found a saddle for the same price but the next step up that would fit my mare. So i got all excited to order it and then Scott called me the same day i was going to place my order and he called to say i couldn't order it yet. when i asked him why he told me he has lost his job....
he apologized over and over again that i couldnt' get my saddle because of his situation. But its heartbreaking that unemployment is litterally half of what he typically makes.
fortunately he has had some interviews this week already but so far nothing to get excited about. so we are on the hunt for a job for him but i'm worried scott will settle for a job just so we dont have to worry about bills. however i dont want him to do that,i want him to find a job that will build his skills or help build his resume so he can get a job that he not only enjoys but challenges him. Hopefully something will work out soon.
so then on to more bad news. because of me switching jobs my length between paychecks is longer than i'm used to, so i'm basically broke. Then i get a medical bill in the mail that has to be paid, my cell phone bill was through the roof because of my phone i got in march. ugh.
Then my mother calls the other day and says my grandmother is in the ICU. They had to transport her from the nursing home to the hospital because she got a UTI 3 days ago and the infection went into her blood and is now shutting down her kidneys. they have since moved her out of the ICU because shes improving. thank god. seriously I can't pray enough for her.
Wait.i have good news!!!!!!!
I was wearing shorts the other day around the house and i was like
no i haven't suddenly lost tons of weight or gotten tan. but i feel better about the way i look and was comfortable enough to leave the house in them.
Then i got my expensive custom chaps for showing in and they fit! it was great to know that i haven't gained any weight. they turned out wonderful and i cant wait to show in them this summer :)
so even though it feels like the walls are crumbling around me, i'm glad to see some improvement in my body image issues. i hope it continues and i can just feel comfortable in my own skin.
thanks for listening spark friends! now time to update my page some more :)
