{oh boy...}

I'm taking a little break from The Sweat Shop to give you all an update. First, I'm finally finishing two projects that I started earlier this week. Since I had The Bachelor to watch on Monday, and Wednesday I had the day off work, not much got done. So sorry :( Anyways, I have two projects a-l-m-o-s-t done. It's a really good feeling. I also have some knitted things to put on Etsy because, as some of you already know, my shop is pretty pathetically low. I have had time to knit at work because we are so slow that I am feeling really uncomfortable with the fact that I have a job. I'm there for 8.5 hours and I do maybe four jobs. Not a good feeling, not at all. So I'm getting ready to update my shop. The dozen-a-day sales thing is killing me :P 

Back to the point of this post. A lot of weird things have happened this weekend and it's hardly the weekend. My stomach is just in knots.

  • My husband lost his job yesterday. We have absolutely no clue how WE are going to fix this, but have absolute faith that God knows how to fix it. This job loss is settling funky in my stomach. Also worth mentioning: my hours have been cut at work. I'm down to 32/week, hence my day off work every Wednesday. Thank the LORD for unemployment, right? My friend told me 10% of Michigan is laid off. Uggh.
  • My husband lost his cell phone snowboarding today. He went with a group of people he used to work with for networking purposes. {I hate this past-tense stuff!} He just called me to say his cell is MIA. In a time where it seems like everything is going wrong I really have to fight  myself to think otherwise. 

Zack and I have not been happy with our cell phone provider. Even though our contract isn't over for another year, even though it is SO EXPENSIVE to buy another phone, something good must come from this. We have seen it with our own two eyes that we will be taken care of. God has always taken care of our families... He'll take care of us.

Please pray for us. We are young and, with some recent unexpected expenses, we haven't had enough time to keep our savings account full. The rubber-band has been snapping at us a lot these past few months. It finally broke.

Now, I must get back to sewing. The mini-facial my iron has been giving me feels pretty darn good ;)

Thanks for reading.

Aw, sweetcheeks! I'm so sorry. I don't have to tell you know God will come through and provide...someway, somehow.

I'll keep you in my prayers. Just believe that He is who He says He is, and He does what He says He will do.

Maggs, you have the best outlook. You're right. We can conquer it all with His help. You're my princess and I truly appreciate you.
