Whoa! If that wasn't just the most crazy hectic section of my life I don't know what was. I have been working at getting my mental issues under control, all while going off a medication I'd been on for years. that's done. I've been meeting with a psychologist every few weeks and (*pause, for effect) I have a mood disorder. duh. well, she has some good ideas for me to use to manage it, ideas that don't necessarily include medication. That would be awesome! I am still breastfeeding Corine, so that's ideal.
After a 5 week hiatus due to an injured foot (minimal running injury, see here) I am back to running. Plus, this HEAT is ridiculous! SO I've been modifying my runs, both in intensity & time. Still loving the minimal shoes. Infact I tried to run in running shoes the other day. It was a DEFINITE no-go. It felt like my feet were wrapped in beach towels. Really really tight beach towels.
I was approached a couple weeks ago by a friend who propositioned me to be her nanny. After a lot of thought, prayer, & discussion (and a pizza dinner, to discuss the details) I accepted. So I'm a nanny for 3 kids, plus my 2 girls. It's a good gig:) We're taking some precautions so our friendship isn't weird; we don't want to break up over this;) I just have to get up early. I hate getting up early. But, oddly enough, I asked God a while back to help me become more of a morning person. Huh. Here ya go!
I'm going to leave with a verse from the Good News Bible translation, 2 Cor. 12:9&10. It's been helping me an awful lot:)
But his answer was:
My grace is all you need, for my power is greatest when you are weak. I am most happy, then, to be proud of my weaknesses, in order to feel the protection of Christ's power over me.10 I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and difficulties for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
