Do you ever???


Good morning lovely people,

It’s the end of the week and I’m tired and feeling a little blah. I know that working these two jobs is temporary. And I know that there’s a reason that The Lord gives me the strength to work them and it’s greatly appreciated. I even pray that I feel refreshed in the morning after 2 hours of sleep. And I do feel much better. Thank God!

Driving into work this morning, though, a girl can get cranky very quickly. Do you ever wonder why people race you, just to get to a red light? Ever wonder why people drive in the wrong lane just to whip in front of you at the last minute? Do you ever wish that the person speeding past you gets pulled over by a cop? Do you wonder why people drive really slow in front of you and then when you try to pass them they speed up? Do you ever wish that person that’s speeding every day to get to the parking lot so they’re not late, would just get up earlier? Do you ever think to yourself “Well no wonder your car is all banged up on the side, because you drive like a maniac!” Are you ever leery parking next to said person with the banged up car because you think they’re going to ding your car door? All these questions and more flash through my head as I make my commute to work every morning and, alas, it’s the same ride in every morning. No peaceful scenery like driving past cows or horses in a pasture. Or driving past a lake where the fish are jumping out of the water. Or no woodland creatures out for their morning stroll, hahahaha. Ok, I slipped into a Disney movie, sorry.

Well let me get to work and be productive. Got to make this day count, right?!?!?! Although I’m pretty sure everyday counts. You all have a great and blessed day. Wishing you hot showers and green lights! That always makes my day. What makes your day a little brighter?




What do you want to be when you grow up?


Val here, just trying to wake up and stay focused at my day job. Have you ever wondered if you’re doing something meaningful with your life? Well, I’m currently going through this right now. I don’t know if it’s a mid-life crisis or menopause, lol. Or am I just looking for a change. I’m at an age now where I want to start a new career and make a go of a whole new life. I have one child still at home and on her way to college in a couple of years. And I ask myself, can I afford to start all over in my career and do something that I love, instead of going to a “job” every day? So, I jokingly tell my family and coworkers, that I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. I’m currently working two jobs so that maybe next year, or a couple of years, I can afford to dive into something that I love to do.

But what will that be? I still would desperately love to open my own bakery/deli, but the market is saturated with bakeries here in Indy. No kidding, there’s a donut shop, specialty cake shop, or cupcake bakery on every corner here. And I ask myself, is it worth the risk to dive in to something that literally every one is doing? Or I could go back to school and pursue a career in something totally different. But, that’s the thing, I don’t know what I would like to do. I love to bake, sew, quilt, crochet, and pretty much anything creative. But do I need a degree for that? And can I make a living doing what I really love?

I need some serious advice, some career counseling, or a kick in the pants. Any volunteers? Anyone?


Have a Blessed day,

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. (‭Romans‬ ‭12‬:‭2‬ ESV)
