Like most families the economy has been hard for everyone. Brandon and I have been able to deal with lots of big changes (me losing a job, finding another one that's less hours and less pay, and also having a baby). Throughout it all our Heavenly Father has been with us every step of the way. Even though I work less and don't make as much as I used to we were still getting by. Now having Connor our expenses have gone up, we have been able to consolidate quite a bit and work off a lot of our debt to get ready for these new expenses but it's still tight.
Recently a full time position opened up at my company. I was hesitant to apply because I love being part time and able to still help out with expenses, but I still get to be with Connor in the afternoon. After thinking about it for quite a bit I applied. I know an employee or two that the company works with their schedules so I thought "why not?, if I don't apply it's already a no." I had my interview and everything went well. They told me I did a great job, but they had already interviewed quite a few people, so I would have to wait and hear back from them. I felt confident and excited, but knew I had done all I could do it was in the Lords hands now.
This morning I heard back that I didn't get the position. My feelings are honestly torn. I am disappointed that I won't be able to relieve some of the stress of our expenses. Yet I am slightly happy that I still have my afternoons with my sweet boy. Currently I'm more disappointed, but I know Heavenly Father is watching over our little family and he'll guide us where we need to be.
Maybe I'm supposed to focus on my photography? I would really love that! I had a wonderful maternity shoot this weekend with a great couple! It's one of Brandon's old roommates and his beautiful wife! She is 37 weeks pregnant and looks fantastic, seriously! I am so excited for them and their little boy to arrive!
If you know anyone that may be interested in having new pictures done I would love to do it! Check out my photography blog here or click on the link to the right.
I hope everyone has a great week, and lets hope the warm weather comes and stays soon! I'm getting sick of this cold dreary weather!
