Hi friends and family
So sorry that I haven't been up to my usual writing pace of every couple of days. I have been so dogged tired when I get home every night that it takes way too much energy to do anything. Work is good. I am working with the inventory...I work for a glass fabrication company so the inventory is hefty stuff...way heavy!! UGH!! I have been organizing the upstairs store room this week and I have bruises ALL over my body (legs, stomach...even across my boobs!) from lifting and hoisting heavy boxes. I've probably moved over 400 boxes this week. I am in dire need of a massage.
I am on the search for an apartment and found a perfect one...huge, great rent, and a view. However, the guy called back tonight and said I was too much of a credit risk....no rent history, new to town, new job...yada...yada...yada...He did say if I had a co-signer it would be fine. However, I don't have anyone to ask...and I don't really want to ask either! UGH!!!! I am trying to stand on my own two feet and it is kinda hard; however, as I've said before I am a girl who lives by faith. I know that God has something even better for me. It may not look like it on the outside, but God knows why He has me where I'm going. Who knows, maybe he has a specific person for me to live by to share my testimony with. I'm just going to keep believing for my needs and know that God will see that they are fulfilled.
Do you know that there is only something like 17 days left until Christmas? I was wrapping presents tonight (out in the garage where it is cold!)...and realize I only have a few more gifts to get and I will be done!! Yeah for me. I'm also excited because I am heading over to my friends Christina and Ismo's this weekend for a Christmas party weekend! Yep, that's right!!! We don't just do a Christmas party for one night...we have it the whole weekend. Chris and Ismo have been opening their home for many years to all of us...we are all college friends....and we still have a ton of people who come every year.....it's fun to get together and have kid type fun as adults!! We will be having a gingerbread house making contest this weekend...and I've already been thinking of how to decorate...I hope I get a good partner!
For those of you who live in Western/Southern Washington, my thoughts and prayers are with you if you are being affected by all the flooding. It is crazy! I can't recall in all my years that I-5 has ever been flooded! Weird! I hope that things get back to normal for all those affected.
Blessings and have a great weekend.
