7 Quick Takes Friday!

This is my first time participating, but I feel like I have a lot of little things to say, so I thought I'd give it a try!

1. I started teaching again last night. I know-only 3 weeks after baby! I only would have gotten one more week, and with hours being so low and having the recent pay-cut, I figured I could handle it. I taught 2 hours last night from the comfort of my bedroom. The only downside? I missed my baby girl very much!

2. Speaking of work, I received an email asking that I apply to be a math content writer! I am hoping that this is the window God is opening for me after not getting the Lead Teacher position. Please say a prayer for this one as it would be a good move within the company. I have to write a math lesson to submit with my resume. It's on linear equations-UGH!

3. You know the saying that when God sends a baby, he sends a loaf of bread? I always have looked for the mega loaf with every baby. When Alexandra was born, I kind of decided that there wouldn't be one what with my pay cut and Andy's wage freeze. I decided to be content with the fact that I could still stay at home with my kids, and teach in the evenings online. What I have realized is that God has sent us many mini-loaves this time of which I am very grateful!

4. I really dropped the ball with Recipe Swap Thursday! I am so sleep deprived, that I totally forgot. I felt really bad about it. I am going to pre-post next week.

5. I have also dropped the ball on the gift for Shawna's baby, Maggie. Really, Shawna, it's almost done!

6. I had to run up to school this morning with Drew's baptism pictures for religion class today. I am forgetting a lot lately, and not liking it. I know I need to cut myself a break. Alex is only 3 weeks, but I don't like feeling so disorganized.

7. Speaking of 3 weeks old, here is my little Alexandra:

don't stress yourself about the recipe swap. Wait till I have this baby. I won't be getting anything else done. Well if it is like the last babies I have had.

Uh oh....I think I've forgotton the recipe swap thing for two weeks now! I'm so sorry! Next week...I'll remember...I swear!

Please give that litte pink Angel a kiss from me! You have no idea how much I wish I could hold her!
You are in my prayers about the job thing!

Love ya

Routine will be coming back soon. Along with it will be sleep. You just need to keep on keeping on:)
Love the pictures. She is so beautiful and healthy. I hope I will have the opportunity to snuggle and smell her sweet baby smell some day.
Prayers for the job too.

Your baby is adorable!
I know how you feel about being disorganized - I have to remind myself that it takes time to get back into the swing of things after having a baby.
