I have a JOB!
In a society where your worth is measured by material wealth, it has been SO hard for me to be jobless. When we first got married, I thought I'd surely get a job quickly at Fleet & Family or find some job that would give me a chance in the Psychological field and be on my way to a Master's degree sometime. When I heard nothing back from my numerous attempts for months, I felt really discouraged. I became even more discouraged when I took a job at Walmart and was completely miserable for about four months as I took two buses to work the hectic-crazy holiday season. After that I was limited by what I could walk to or work around getting to because we have only one car.
I have struggled with feeling worthless, pointless, and completely stuck without a job and nothing to look forward to doing. I'm lucky to have such a great husband to support me and help me to not feel like a loser.
But yeah, back to the JOB! I'm going to be a part-time bakery clerk at a major grocery store chain here. I'm really excited because I will be doing cake decorating and other baking- really psyched!
I haven't been doing my internship this past week because, and here's another great thing about this week, Russ came home from a two-month underway! So yeah, we've been spending a lot of time together and he's been adjusting to home and getting caught up on all the things he missed in two months.
But, here's the couple of cakes that I did last week that I didn't get a chance to share yet:
