A new season

Well It has only been a few days since I posted but there is much to update you all on.

I didn't make my goal of working out 3 times a week. But I did get 2 in. Merci got sick and couldn't go to school on Friday, so I didn't drive the long drive just to work out, besides we have like $0, so I needed to save the gas!

I started my Tastefully Simple career on Saturday. My first home party went really well. Thanks Beth! A $200 party. I make 36% of that! It was fun and I felt pretty comfortable.


No I am not pregnant, nor do we plan on becoming so.

Josh also started his own "business" on Saturday. Within a week Josh found away to make money without really working too hard=) His boss had a truck he wanted to sell. It is kind of crappy, but for the price it will do until we are on our feet again. So we are buying the truck so Josh can subcontract for his company. This means more money for us!! Right now we have to pay someone to work since Josh can't. But EVERYTHING has been working out perfectly. His boss wasn't opposed to any of Josh'a ideas. He totally supported him. Gave him the truck and a blank check to buy ladders. We can pay him when we get going. How perfect. Josh has been wanting to go on his own for awhile now. So we are praying this is GOD'S plan. I mean everything happened within like 5 days. How incredible!
If this doesn't pan out, Oh well, but if it does more power to us!

I feel like we are in a new season. We both started our "business" on Saturday. We are both in a better place with God, and each other. Thanks for all of your prayers and concerns. With FAITH I can say we are good for awhile! I breathe a breath of relief as I say that. Our next bill is due on the 21st! It may be a little late, but I am confident that it as well as ALL other expenses will be paid. AND that Josh and I will get a getaway weekend for our anniversary in November.=)

Oh yeah and Josh met his biological father on Saturday also. He has never really met him before! A big day of a new season!

Sweet! So Josh is doing some work on his own, huh? Oh man, I hope this ends up working out well for the both of you.

Wow... you have a lot going on! Congrats on the new businesses! And I wouldn't worry about not making your goal, you had a really good excuse and it doesn't seem worth it to go ANYWHERE you don't have to these days with gas prices the way they are! Good luck on the new endeavors!!
