when it rains, it pours, and your floors get wet...

You know that phrase, "when it rains, it pours"?!? Well, apparently, in my life, that phrase is true, except instead of "when it rains, it pours" it should be "when it rains, it pours, and my carpet gets wet and the floors sit under an inch of water from the clogged drains"

Yeah, our pipes got backed up tonight, and covered our downstairs in an inch of water. It was just ridiculous. We called our maintenance emergency number, just to find out that it's not considered an emergency. We can't use our water downstairs, and our upstairs everytime we use our toilet upstairs we have to use a plunger.

I'm so over this and just ready to move onto where we're supposed to be...

oh and I did I tell you my car died too?!?

rough times

Bills have just piled up in the short week that Kenney's been out of work. Car payment, car insurance, utilities, rent, pre-k for Braydon. And no way to pay it. I know that God has promised to provide for all of our needs, but it's a little overwhelming. Especially since we have an idea of where we need to be heading to, but have no way of getting there (yet).

another statistic...

Kenney always said he was proud he had not become a statistic. He had never been arrested, never been in a gang, was employed and hard working. And today, he lost his job.

We'd seen the writing on the wall, and we knew it was coming. They've been laying off more and more people on a weekly basis. Pay cuts were every where. Kenney had been looking for other jobs, but to no avail. He is an architectural draftsman, so he's tied to the housing industry, which obviously isn't doing too well.

So, here we are...me working part time, Kenney unemployed with 4 mouths to feed and we can only trust the God knows what He is doing. We'd love to go to IHOP in Kansas City, but we'll just have to pray for provision to do so, because at this point we just can't do that.

Your prayers are greatly appreciated.

struggles...

I'm struggling with a lot right now and to be honest, I just don't know which way is up....

We're struggling with Braydon...we've changed his diet, and seen a significant improvement, but he still struggles daily. You can see it in his eyes! He told me this morning that he just can't stop moving and he wants it to stop. So that's it. We're going to go ahead and start him on the medicine, which I've got mixed feelings about.

Another thing I'm struggling with is my "careers". Yes I said careers. Right now I'm being pulled in way too many directions, and it's driving me insane. I have to finish out the school year teaching...it's not just something you can give your two weeks in on. I LOVE MY PHOTOGRAPHY, but financially, do not have the means to purchase the equipment I need to pursue them right now. My sister who is an amazing photographer and has amazing equipment and I'm totally jealous of her lens. Apparently, she is jealous of another photographers equipment...I guess its a vicious cycle! I love Mary Kay, and would love to be a sales director, but I don't know if I have the team underneath me that will make it successful. I also know that I love being a mommy, but with "working" 3 different "jobs" my domestic career is being neglected. So what do I do?

Also, Kenney needs to find a new job, like as in find one yesterday. They are continually laying people off left and right at his job, and there's even been rumors of bankruptcy. But no one locally is hiring for his line of work. So that means he's having to look for work elsewhere.

I think it's time I went back to bed...maybe when I wake back up it'll be better?!?
