Can I get a drama free day???? Please????

Well well well where do I start?????
So yesterday was my first day of in-service at my new teaching job. I was extremely nervous to say the least since I haven't worked outside the home in quite some time not to mention this will be my first official year teaching in a full time position. I did teach one year of preschool part-time.
Knowing I had to be somewhere at a certain time was a little worrisome to me especially since I woke up with a flat tire. My son was spending the night at a friends and was going to come home early so I could use his truck when he couldn't find the keys anywhere. Now we do have an extra set but he was 45 mins. away..... Hubs got the tire plugged by 8:00, so I could leave, fortunately the in-loves were available to drive over (20 mins away) with a 5 minute notice to keep the two younger kiddos so that hubs could get spare key to oldest son so he could come home and watch the kiddos for us... Hubs got to his meeting on time, in-loves got to go home, and I made it to work on time.
Today was not going to be outdone by yesterday, oh no, no way it had to top yesterday. My father-in-love was scheduled for a heart cath early this morning we figured maybe a stent or something simple but to our disappointment he was scheduled for heart by-pass surgery for tomorrow. I found all of this out before I made it to work.

Wow! I am worn out! But I do know that Jehovah Jireh will provide all that our family needs right now and I am counting on HIM cuz aint nothing good comin from me right now!!! Love the grammar coming from a new teacher?? :)

Hoping ya'll are having a Drama free week and if not know that He can and will provide if we let Him.

Happy Birthday to my sweet Daddy. I hate that he and my mom live so far away(Germany). I know they are traveling this weekend to celebrate. Hope it is a great trip.
Also want to say Happy Birthday to my niece, Janna, on my husband's side of the family. She is turning the big 30!
Love you both!

I start my new job teaching 5th grade this coming Monday. I am very nervous. I won't actually have the students til the 19th. I feel so old to be starting something for the first time. I am feeling such a wide range of emotions right now. If the Lord leads please pray that I will lean totally on Him and Him alone. I know that with Him I can accomplish anything but without Him I will fail miserably.

Hope ya'll have a wonderful weekend.

Happy Birthday honey

Today is my sweetie pie's birthday and we have had a busy day. I let him sleep in, got Starbucks for him. Then the boys and I went on the hunt for some presents to bless him with. We then had a wonderful steak dinner here at home which of course he grilled for us...... Maybe I should have grilled them..... Oh well that is just one of the things that makes him so incredibly special. We love you honey and can't wait to see what God has in store for you this year.
