Lord, change me!

Today at church, I prayed for the Lord to change me, mold me into what He wants me to be, more kind, more understanding, and more of Him to my small circle of co workers!
Lately at work, my job has started to stress me out! It shouldn't, but it does! I'm not sure how it snuck up on me, but I'm sick of it! It fatigues me! So, I started back on my stationary bike on Thursday and a quiet time with Him! It helps me a lot. Centers me, if you want it put in a non religious way! I also got this new book by Beni Johnson. It is a good read, nothing new in the realm of eating better and exercising, but a good reminder. She also talks about sleep. I don't sleep well, haven't for years, but I think its not been good! If I get 7 hours, I'm lucky! 5 or 6 is more like it, but by 7 p.m. I'm pooped as I have been up since 5 a.m. or maybe 6 a.m. Then, you know that vicious cycle, if I cat nap before bed, I don't sleep all night. Man, this sucks!!!
Plus within all this sleep mess, my job is stressful. A co-worker is at times hard to deal with, bossy and controlling! My daughter asked me just recently "why do you attract this kind of personality?" I don't know why, but it's tiring! My personality is I'm trying to get along with everyone difficult or not, but I pay for it! Its very wearing! Plus I can't just walk away from this person as I work daily with her in the same office. So, that's where I asked the Lord to change me, change my attitude, change how I react to her, change me to what will bring glory to His Kingdom! I have been thinking of looking for a new job, but would I find another person like her?? Please pray for me and pray for her! I'm sure I'm hard to deal with at times, it's not all her! Blessings!!!

this weekend

So, about a week ago or so, I noticed a rather loud noise in the basement of water rushing. I couldn't find anything, I looked and listened, nothing!!! But then when I heard it again, it was water spilling out of the drain pipe for the washing machine. Gushing out the top like a waterfall. So, Gordon is gone and I decided not to tell him until he got home which was going to be in 24 hours. So, then on last Sunday we stopped at the septic guys house to talk to him, got it pumped and guess what. That's right, water gushing out of the pipe still!!! Man, I couldn't believe it! So, we called the plumber son and he came up to help find out what's going on. There was a plug of goo about 10 feet from the house, that finally let go and voile , its fixed and life is good!!!

Gordon is back from mule deer hunting with 3 other guys. They had a successful hunt and everyone got meat for their freezers. The buck was a very nice size and the meat will be appreciated. Also, while he was gone our septic decided to act up, so he's digging so the guy can access the tank and pump it out, I'm praising God that this didn't happen in the middle of winter! Update, septic was full and now clean. We were told not to use powder detergent, I make my own, liquid detergent breaks down easier.


So with our 4 legged baby gone to boot camp, I decided to take a week off of work! So, today being the first day that I could sleep later th...
