Good News

Other than everything that is going on with Mark, this week is so far going well. There are couple of potential job opportunities for me that may be opening up, which is good. My boss was able to set me up for an interview, which I had yesterday, with another electrical construction company. Two of the guys in my safety department have already accepted positions with them.

Overall, the company, position and pay sounds good, except one thing. They don't pay any sick, vacation or holidays. Who does that? It's a day later and I still can't grasp my mind around that concept. My first thought was, well I won't work there. Then David reminded me that any job is better than nothing. Ugh, he is so right. I should know by Friday if I have the job.

I applied for another position and heard from them yesterday that they want to set up a phone interview sometime this week. I am waiting to hear back, as to when it is going to be. So we shall see what happens.

We didn't go down to the hospital last night, as we took a much needed break. I did feel bad, that we were not there though. I have to remind myself though, that if Mark does recover which Lord willing will happen, it is going to awhile from now. We can't burn ourselves out, by going to the hospital every evening. The plan for today is to head down there again tonight after work and as well as tomorrow night.

Because of everything going on, we only just started our Christmas shopping. This is not exactly how I would have planned it or wished for the holidays to be going, but we don't have control over everything. I actually had a couple of minutes to relax last night evening for the first time in a while. I was staring at the Christmas tree last night thinking how pretty it was, all the lights and ornaments. It definitely doesn't feel like Christmas at all! I will try to take pictures of the tree and post them soon.

Robyn--good to hear about the other job possibilities, I've been praying non-stop about your job and mark. As my dad always says, "God knows what he's doing even if we think he's crazy."
