Phew! Just finished a glorious 7 day stretch of working. In a couple of weeks I’ll do it again. Because it was available and Christmas is just around the corner!!!
As we continue along on our Dave Ramsey train, one of the most common things people do when working on paying down debt is work more. Overtime. Promotion. 2nd job. Odds and ends. You do what you have to do. While I don’t always jump on the overtime train because I do try to blance home and work, this came at a good time. I mentioned Christmas, but we also have a marriage conference in December and a kiddo going to Europe in June, so yeah, Getting some of that while it works for our family! Fortunately, I do enjoy my job and OT for me means working at the hospital and while it is tough, it’s only a few hours and I go home. Which is great!
The only unfortunate thing is for some reason I woke up at 3 a.m. today. Tossed and turned for about an hour and threw in the towel at 4 a.m. Got up, did my daily readings, prayed, finished The Hobbit and about 6 a.m. fell asleep in the chair for an hour. It was still early enough to walk the dog and get most of the grocery shopping done before I went in to work, so that worked. Now, I will just be living off the Diet Coke caffeine until bedtime—-which will probably be somewhere around 8:30!!
The blessing is that I HAVE the opportunity to work OT. If I do what I have to do, then God does the rest. Consistently. Truly. Honestly. Every time.
