Job interview on Thursday. Please pray — we need the money. They called on Wednesday morning to tell me that they filled the position already.
Hi. My name is Jen and I wish I was in the Pacific Northwest instead of L.A. where it’s bloody hot.
An update on the events of the last few days…
[+] On my way back to the Snuggery yesterday, someone was turning into traffic and hit me. The main damage is my wheel well and the car body surrounding it — I managed to get the car home… and then found out that it was not driveable. Thank God for insurance companies and rental cars. Hopefully insurance will fix the damage.
[+] Jon has two funerals next week — one of which came up right after he found out about the car. It will take care of half of our deductible…
[+] Still job-hunting and hoping something comes of it. It’s seriously wrecking my self-esteem that I can’t find a job.
[+] I saw all the stuff on the news about the “touchdown Jesus” statue getting hit by lightning and burning. An even more irritating thought: THEY’RE REBUILDING IT!!!!!! That money could seriously be better used for something like feeding the hungry, helping disaster victims in third world countries, or well… pretty much ANYTHING else in Acts 2.
[+] For the most part, Lakers’ fans actually managed to behave themselves on Thursday when the Lakers won the NBA title. It’s unfortunate that a few fans decided to light things on fire but they were thankfully the minority. All the LA news stations were showing live pics of the area surrounding Staples Center and the LAPD was out in riot gear in anticipation of looting and arson and such.
[+] Tomorrow, I’ll be in San Diego with Jon where he’ll be supply-preaching. It’s kind of cool because I’ll almost be able to claim that I’ve driven every mile of I-15 between Mexico and the Canadian border.
Jon’s youth pastor gig is going well but…
I still need gainful employment, preferably with benefits. Could y’all please lift up some prayers that I can find some? I’ve had interviews but none have come to fruition and it’s getting a bit discouraging.
I spent yesterday going through my boxes of belongings in my in-laws’ garage so today was the day to do “my Monday list”. My very wonderful mother-in-law graciously offered to take Daniel for the morning so I could get “my Monday list” worked on. So far, I have…
[+] Set up an online account with Southern California Edison so I can pay my bills online.
[+] Scheduled my rheumatology appointment and re-faxed the information to them. (I think their fax machine feeds into a paper shredder or something.) I also called to make sure they got the stuff.
[+] Called Milestones for Development to try and get an evaluation set up for Daniel.
[+] Called our doctor to get the referral that Milestones needs.
[+] Played butler to several of my in-laws’ cats.
[+] Gave the ermine-coated little girl her morning cream.
[+] Applied for jobs on Monster.Com, LaTimes.Com, and HotJobs.
