I have decided that despite my love for my betta fish and their cute little bowls, I am sick of the maintenance. I hate when their water gets low because I feel like a horrible “mother” for making them live in such an environment. Kevin says I don’t feed them enough, so that makes me start to doubt my motherly side too. They have been good to me but I’m thinking it’s time to let them go. If anyone is interested in giving them a new home, I’m sure they would appreciate it. I mean, it’s not like I would dump them out into the toilet and pretend they were never alive. Not me, nope. I would never do that. I’m not that kind of mother. So, please give them a new home. They are good fish, and usually keep to themselves.
I have lots of little plans for this week. Biggest one being the obvious. . . look for a job! I also plan on sleeping in at least an hour later than usual (nice!), going for a run everyday with Lisa, cleaning out random drawers that have never been cleaned out, getting some more information on health insurance, taking old dresses to consignment, wrapping all of our Christmas presents, hanging out with Kim and her kids, and having lunch with Lis and Anna. I’m so excited to have time to do all of these things!
Speaking of health insurance. . .
I spent HOURS on the phone Friday with different companies. It was non-stop. If you know me at all, you know I’m not a big fan of talking on the phone. I’ll text all day long, but being on the phone for more than 10 minutes at a time is just uncomfortable and annoying. Unfortunately when it comes to making non-personal related phone calls. . . text messaging is not an option. And after all day on the phone, I can honestly say that not very much was accomplished. I’m really not looking forward to tomorrow at all.
We had a really great weekend. Saturday we were able to volunteer with Parker Street Ministries in their children’s Christmas store. Our church donated a lot of things that kids would buy for their parents like lotions, frames, candles, ties. . .Â stuff like that. The kids from the after school program came in and were able to shop with everything being under $1. I was on the wrapping team and Kevin took the money. It was cute seeing the kids so excited to be able to buy presents for their moms, dads, and grandparents. It wasn’t even about the money, seeing as how the money just went back to them anyway. It was all donated to Parker Street Ministries. It was just about them being able to buy things for their parents they wouldn’t normally be able to afford.Â A couple of the kids had $5-$6 worth of presents and only had $.50 in their pocket. It didn’t even matter. It was such a nice thing to be a part of and I really hope we have more opportunities like this to help out. Have I mentioned how much I love our church?!
