A brand new year

It has been way too long since I have posted on my blog! It's hard to believe how much has changed. It was a painful fall - changes in the job led to a job ending. The church/pastor asked me to resign so they could hire a full time youth director. After ten years of faithful service, it was hard to believe that I could be so "disposable." However, it's a new year with new opportunities and I cannot dwell on the past. I have started a new job at an amazing B&B in Pleasanton, KS. They want to train me to be the Assistant Innkeeper and be able to run the place when they are away. I'm very excited about it but since it doesn't pay enough to live on, I am currently looking for a flexible part time job that will coordinate. I have applied at Starbucks, Borders, Olive Garden, Apple Store, Penzeys, Mad Science, Jenny Craig, Hillcrest Covenant and probably others I can't even remember. So far, I haven't heard a peep from anyone. I'm hoping it's due to the craziness of the first of the year but since we are now at the 10th, that excuse is wearing thin. Time to come up with some other options. However, today I am going to sit in front of the fire and enjoy the SNOW!! First good snow this winter and it's about time! The penguins are happy at last - and so am I! Here's to a blessed 2011!
