Turning into a Supervillian is Painful

I am slowly turning into Poison Ivy. It's a slow, painful, and ITCHY process. Fortunately I have a husband who is immune and the internets at my fingertips to keep me occupied while I turn into a red head. To occupy my time, I have been doing the following: I have been OBSESSED with I dare you to look through these pictures and not say aww at least one time.
I have also been researching my family history. I got all the way to the 1400s with one side. This is a cartoon version of my family's coat of arms in England: the Bigelows. Apparently a lot of people are related to the Bigelows including, but not limited to, Clara Barton, President Garfield, and President Bush.
And as a fallback, I will continue to use I don't know how people search the web without it!
These distractions are keeping mittens off my hands. Otherwise all I would be thinking about is scratching. I will not think about that itch on my knee. I will not think about that itch on my knee. I will not think about that itch on my knee...

The Joy of Blogging

Oh good, another blog about job hunting. I have a fantasy that if I talk enough about it someone will give me one just to shut me up. I've been applying everywhere. I am getting nothing. I wish I was so good at blogging I could pull an audience that follows me consistently, not just when I say I've posted on Facebook. I could probably make some money that way. I guess I need an official concept or overall theme. I also need to be more consistent. I also need a computer so I don't have so many grammatical errors/ awkward sentences from typing this on my phone. Someday I will be to the blog world what Bob Ross was to teaching art on TV. A girl can only dream..

How About Now?

After non-stop job hunting and non-stop rejection by employers of every kind, Aaron and I needed this Sunday. We have always declared Sundays a "just us" day (besides church). It will be different once he is a full time minister, but we will cross that bridge when we get there. We were going to go to the same church we visited last week; however, we got slightly lost and decided it would be better to visit another church that started at a later time than be late to the first one. God still spoke to us there (it's like He knew where we were going all along). The pastor preached from Psalms 73 and talked about how it doesn't make sense that non-believers seem more successful (based on the world's definition. Although I have accepted the fact that I will never be rich, I would like to feel secure financially. My trust is still in the Lord but my patience is being tested as far as finding jobs. God's timing is so evident in my life and marriage to Aaron, I just need to trust that He will provide the right jobs at the right time.
