16 days and counting down
Saturday, May 02, 2009
I can hardly believe after years of preparing for this...it is happening!! In 16 days my husband will be voluntarily unemployed!! In a time of economic crisis even!! Sounds crazy...but it is true.
In 18 days we will be in Florida and embarking upon a new chapter in our lives. We will be attending an 8.5 week missionary training with New Mission Systems International.
I cannot recall ever feeling so many different emotions all at once in my entire life. And...as an emotional eater I have spiralled out of control. I am really struggling. And...to be honest...I just don't want to stop...I keep telling myself I will deal with it later that I can't deal with it now. All at the same time, I know that is a lie from the pit of hell. So...I am asking my fellow Christian sisters to pray for me.
Many people have been sharing their May goals. It is too overwhelming to me to set a goal for a whole month right now...so, my goal right now is to blog/journal everyday during this count down...and I will record the food I ate here. Perhaps the combined accountability of putting what I ate in public print along with journalling how I am dealing with all the emotions will help me get back on track.
