Hey everyone. I just thought I'd let you all know that the Lord is really looking out for us! On Wednesday I had a job interview for a CSR position at American Family Insurance. I had no hopes that I would get the job since I've done hundreds of interviews in the past. (ok, I hoped a little bit) During the interview Rick (the Agent) asked me something about what the hardest time in my life was and how I over came it. While I was answering the question I started tearing up. I CRIED IN MY INTERVIEW! Who does that, really? I wasn't balling but it was hard to speak because of my tears. I felt so dumb so I apologized and told him that I don't really do this. I don't like to cry in front of people. He cracked jokes about my tears and we moved on. I was grateful for how he handled the dang blubbering. :] At the end of the interview he told me he was impressed with me and that he received about 40 applications for the position but was only interviewing 7 of us. He wanted to give the last two candidates a chance before making the final decision and then said he would call tomorrow if I got the position. This was good because I wouldn’t have to wait long to find out if I got the job or not.

After the interview I felt so dumb and I couldn’t help but laugh at myself. I called Matt and Mom and told them what happened. Both Mom and Matt laughed with me. But I was still nervous. I thought my chances were slim since I was weak enough to cry in the interview. I thought maybe he thought I couldn't handle the job. But just a few hours later I received a call from...RICK at American Family Insurance telling me I GOT THE JOB! I couldn't believe it. He said I needed to pass a background and credit check but I was positive it would be clean. He said the last 10 people he gave the job to didn't pass the background check. That was a shocker.

Anywho, to make a long story short...I GOT A JOB.... . .. . .. ... FINALY! Thank you for all your prayers and support in my dangerous quest to find a J.O.B. Now Matt and I can start paying our bills on time and get rid of our debt. YIPPIE!!!

Hi family. I was just talking to Rachel and she made me realize that I haven't checked out everyone's Blog in a long time so I thought I'd take a look. Then I realized I haven't posted anything really in a while I am. Matt and I are doing good as usual and are still struggling to pay our usual...and I'm trying to remember to trust the Lord... ... . usual. :] Matt constantly reassures me that everything will be ok. I know it's just hard. I'm sure everyone can relate.

My b-day was the 9th for those who forgot. ;] Matt and I spent the 8-10th with his family on the property they own near Logan, UT. It is VERY beautiful out there. Lots of trees and grass with a little river that runs around it. Most of the time I just lazed around and listened to the birds, the wind blowing through the trees and the rushing water. Very relaxing. Not to mention lots of junk food. YUM. :] I LOVE FOOOOOOOOD. I gotta say, when the time came for us to leave I was glad. I missed my own bed. We slept in a tent for two nights. I love camping but definitely missed the comforts of my own bed and pooping in my own toilet.

Now it's back to reality and job hunting again. I sware I probably spend more money job hunting. sheesh. Rachel reminds me to pray for help and for comfort. I Love you Rach. Wish you weren't so far away from me. I need your strength.
