I changed the blog background! I've been wanting a "cute" blog like everyone else has but simply didn't find the time to make it happen...today that all changed! I do hope you like my new look! As I said in the title the new look goes with the new me! I said to Thomas last night "This next week is the first week of the rest of my life!" And I mean that! I have a few new things starting this week that I'm pretty excited about...
1. New Job! That's right I FINALLY got a job that's worth writing about...I think! I haven't actually started yet! But, I am pretty excited about it. I'll be working as a Chiropractor Assistant! I have been a beneficiary of chiropractic care in the past and fully believe in it's ability to help (it works wonders on my massive headaches!) Anyways, it seems like a great office, 2 doctors, an office manager and one other assistant. I will get to learn all sorts of things like how to take someone's blood pressure, weight & height, assist with certain therapies and explain the whole process to new clients. It's part time, I'll just work Monday, Wednesday, Friday, then a small Sat morning shift. Thomas and I feel like this is the answer to many prayers for guidance in the "what should I be doing with my life?" Department. I am excited to learn some new skills, work in a "medical" office as I think it could open more doors for me (if needed:) So I start Wednesday!
2. New Calling! This was actually self-imposed. One night when Thomas and I were at the Temple I asked what I needed to do to be a Temple Worker. I have wanted to work in the Temple for many years, but it's a time commitment and working full time up until now it just hasn't worked out. Well, 2 Sundays ago I met with the Bishop of our ward and this Wednesday is my first day! I will be working at the Newport Beach Temple from 6:15am-Noon every Wednesday until my release date...when I have a a baby! They actually told me that once I have a child I am automatically released as they don't want moms with children at home to be working in the Temple (this was actually talked about at the General RS Broadcast a few weeks ago!) Anyways, I am so grateful for this chance. I really feel that this is something that I should be doing with my time now. It is more important than the $8/hr I could make at Mervyns folding clothes, or even the full time salary I could make. Now is my chance while young to devote my time in such a way. I am so grateful that last year when Thomas and I were deciding which job to take that we chose a job where we could live so close to the Temple! What a blessing!
Anyways, besides these 2 new things in life, things are going well, besides Thomas being sick today! We are expecting Ben, Jillian and their children next week which Thomas and I are both way excited about! We've got their trip pretty well planned, with Disneyland, the beach and the pool! We can't wait!
