So I had two jobs and I was going to school full time. This was very very stressful to me and after much prayer the Lord helped me out. Orion and I had talked about me quitting one of jobs to ease my stress. Although having the extra money coming in was nice the stress I felt from being so stretched thin was not. Orion told me it was up to me to quit or stay at the job. I hate quitting with a passion so I decided to suffer through it until the end of the summer. Although Heavenly Father had other plans for me. Last week I went in work at my second job and my boss sat me down to talk. She told me that things were not really working out and that I was being let go. What a relief I felt when she said this! I felt like dancing for joy! (Thus the picture of me doing my happy dance in my prom dress)Although it is never good to lose a form of income it really was a weight lifted off my shoulders. Now I could actually spend time with my wonderful husband and focus more on what is important in life. I will be done with this semester in a month, which means one less thing to stress about. I am so very grateful for all the blessings Orion and I have received since we got married. Every day just gets better and better (although some days are better than others). We are making our way through life together holding hands and loving each other along the way.

So this has been an interesting week. Orion got off work on Wednesday (I think it was Wednesday) and told me that he got a raise! I was expecting maybe a dollar or less, any kind of raise is a good raise I think. To my surprise he told me that he got a two dollar raise!!!! He has only been working at his job since the middle of February, so we are very grateful that his boss gave him this raise. For me this week has been pretty uneventful, oddly enough I only worked two days this week between my two jobs. So I just focused on school and spending time with my mom. I needed a week like this to help me relax. Ever since we got married we have been REALLY busy with work and school. This is my mom in the black sitting while Orion and I took a zillion pictures after getting sealed. I love my mommy she is wonderful!
I am so excited that I am half way through the semester! On a random note I am looking for a day job starting in the fall... I am open for suggestions!
