dear faithful bloggers - all two of you

just kidding
a lot has happened in the last couple months. Wayne and I, and of course Sydney, recently moved to Hartford, my home town. We are staying with my parents while Wayne finishes up his Assoc. Degree at the local UW center. This came up fairly suddenly. I had just returned to work from maternity leave and after taking multiple looks at our finances, we realised we were in a bit of a bind.

dont get me wrong, we know what it means to live by faith. Wayne lost his job Jan 07 after continual problems with his good arm. (we found out he lost his job the same day we found out we were expecting about excitement). ever since then, we lived off my salary as an assist. teacher at a YMCA child care center. talk about a tight budget. actually, after tighting the financial belt, we were still didnt have enough to survive. but we pressed on where we were, watching God bless us beyond belief. He truly is our provider.

that being said, once Sydney was born, we figured with the additional child care, diapers and rising gas prices, i would need a 4+ dollar raise. i got 28 cents. nice.

well, God opened up a window for us to move in with my parents, which will allow us to save for seminary for wayne and take away alot of the concern of day to day living...aka rent.

now, it looks like both wayne and i will be getting a job at a soon to be opened walmart. hopefully we will be able to work opposite hours so that one of us can be home with sydney and avoid child care.

so, here's to a new year, new home, new jobs and lovingkindness that is new every morning.
