I GOT A JOB. I GOT A JOB.
This is a vintage truck that I saw in the parking lot of the local mall. It's so cool. Nothing compares to vintage vehicles. They have so much style and character.
How are you all doing? It has been a LONG, LONG, LONG, LONG time since I last posted something here.
Well, let's see. I got a job. It's a part-time job here at a well-known department store. I'm so excited. There is the possibility of picking up extra shifts when available, which is really nice. It also means that I am one step closer to being completely off of public assistance. It's scary and exhilirating all at the same time. I've been grateful for the help, because without it my family would have really suffered. However, it'll be nice to slowly be back to a place where I can "be my own boss" in terms of my money etc :) :) :)
I also became a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant and I'm really excited about that, too. So if you have any questions about that, please send me a private email :) :) I can ship anywhere in the United States.
What else? I"m pursuing my photography a little bit more. That's really neat. I'm looking into seeing what I can do to earn some extra $$$ from all of that.
I am also going to get braces. I'm paying for that out of my own pocket since I don't have health insurance. However, God is making it possible for me to do this. My dentist and my orthodontist are aware of my situation and have been really bending over backwards to work with me. Did I mention how thankful I am that God is making this all possible?
Oh, and I'm taking my "behind the wheel" driver test on Friday, October 5th at 2:30 p.m Pacific Standard Time. Please pray for me that I"ll pass. It has been a really difficult couple of months in my personal life. I'd written about it twice and then deleted the posts, because I didn't want a reason to dwell on those bad things. However, God has been really, really good to me...and so many things are happening all at once :) :)
With that, I leave you all with this photo. This is me, how I look now after having lost 87 pounds. I rarely post photos of myself, but I like this one:
That really is the news from the ocean shores of California today. Extra love and hugs, Heather :)
