Nothing to really discuss

 So, I have nothing to really talk about from last week. Life went along as usual.

 I took a neighbor to LAX. Ooh, thrilling. That's an airport that I normally avoid, but if you hit it during the week in the morning, it's not too bad.

 I'm also babysitting a cute Basset Hound named Lucy.



Lucy is a rescue doggy too. Her foster parents are on vacation until next week, so she and I have been hanging out this week. She's 11 years old, so she's not a fast walker-and unfortunately has peed in here a few times during the night. :( Thank goodness I have tile is all I'll say about it....

 I felt like picking Lucy up from her foster home :) in San Diego and enjoyed the drive there and back immensely. I didn't realize how nice the rest stop on the way back was! 



 The rest stops have views where you can look out at the ocean. I guess the state found money to redo these rest stops? 

 As for the job front, I'm in the top 3 for a position at a mortgage company where I'd be a communications coordinator. I also have an interview with Kaiser Permanente for a position that pays well. I'm kind of hoping I get the position with Kaiser. We'll see what happens though. 

 And so, that's my update. I have a Halloween party this evening that I'm trying to figure out my costume for! Will post after the party!

A real, moving God....

 For those of you who don't know, I've been in dream mode for the last 2-5 years. Lol.

 I got laid off from my escrow job 5 years ago and used the opportunity to turn things around in my life. My escrow job paid decently and had great insurance. I was able to do a lot financially during my time there. Without going into great detail though, I really feel that God moved in my life when I got laid off from there.

 Which, in between temp jobs, began my freelancing career.

 God has really moved in my life during these past 5 years. I feel that he restored some lost time in my life and moved me forward in many areas of my life.

 And now that it looks like I may have a real, full-time job, I look back and am grateful to these past 5 years. I'm grateful to the people I've met. I'm grateful for the leaps of faith I've taken. Hell, I'm even grateful for the stupid mistakes I've made.

 Thank you, Father God, for these past 5 years. May the next 5 be even better!

Chalk art, interview, life

 I figure that a weekly update is the best way for me to keep this thing current. That is, until I get sick of weekly updates again. :)

 Let's see, to start back at the beginning of the week....

Sunday... I went to church the night before, so I slept in, which was nice. I can't really think of much else I did that day that's worth noting. Lol.

 Monday... I went to my Monday job, which involved helping my boss out since she cracked her ribs when falling. I took her to the dermatologist's for her melanoma surgery consultation. Then, we went to Costco and ate lunch there. Yay for cheap hot dogs and sodas!

 Tuesday... The government shut down, and almost everyone panicked. I also walked Gulliver, the rescue's dog in boarding.


I also went to the city council meeting for a little while to write an article. Finishing it up now. 

Wednesday... This was a bad day. I just felt like I could barely function and get what I needed to done. 

Thursday... The morning was bad, but it got better as the day went along. I got my work done and even went to a Chalk Art Festival at Fullerton College. Some of it was awe inspiring. To be able to draw like these people is amazing! 





Friday... I went on an interview in a city almost 2 hours away from me. I'll hate that drive if I get the job! I had lunch with my dad at Arturo's Puffy Taco. It was a recommendation from a Facebook friend. Let me say it is good-and decently priced too.

 And so, that's my week. Hopefully next week is a bit more animated. :)
