One of those

Today is already one of those days… the ones where things just seem to go wonky. Yes wonky. Don’t judge my choice of words. It’s not that things are necessarily wrong, but rather that they just aren’t quite how you expected them to be. 

This morning when I woke up (after 8am) I quickly realized that my husband must have accidently unplugged the baby monitor last night. I could hear my baby crying across the hall … meaning she must have been awake for quite a while. She had a leg sticking out of the crib.  She spent an entire hour eating her bottle (which is just ridiculous). Afterwards, she pooped in her just changed diaper. While changing her diaper, I got poop on my finger. Totally didn’t freak out. I’m pretty proud of myself for that one. I went to the bathroom after getting her changed and realized that my underwear was on inside out… I put them on in the dark. Yeah. Oh, and at the moment, I’m typing this in Microsoft word with the intention of pasting it into my blog later because apparently my internet has no intention of working this morning. Yep, this is definitely one of those days.

I’ve had quite a bit of “wonkiness” in my life lately. For those of you haven’t heard, my husband is currently unemployed. Oddly, our incredible lack of income and increasing reality of not being able to pay the bills isn’t really bothering me. I just assume that God is going to work it out. The day he found out “officially” that he was losing his job, he was offered the opportunity to work with a guy from our church while he’s in between jobs and the guy has the extra work. It’s not a long term job, nor is it one that will actually support our family in the meantime- but it is something, which is more than nothing- and it reinforces my belief that God will take care of us. 

Monday was my first time to go to MOPs.  I’m going to try my best not to make any opinions on the program based on my first time. I will say this though- I hope they are serious about the whole “bless this mess” theme, because my house (every single room and hallway) is a complete disaster, and on my way out the door, I wiped my baby’s face with a clean diaper because it was all I could find. (Monday was also one of those days).

So if you’re having one of those days, weeks, months, or even years… you’re not alone. I’ve had this little kid song stuck in my head for over a week now:

(From “My First Hymnal: 75 Favorite Bible Songs”)
Look at the flowers in the field
They don’t sow or shop for clothes
If God takes care of flowers in the field,
He will take care of you.
Don’t worry, don’t worry
God will take care of you.
Don’t worry, don’t worry
God will take care of you.

P.S. if you happen to know of a job opening with great pay and benefits, feel free to pass on the info :)
