I’m not a dead link or a mom blog!

My mind and emotions have been swimming in the deep end lately. I can’t believe I haven’t posted in 2 weeks. That’s the longest I’ve ever gone without spilling my guts for the world to read.

I think it’s time for some spillage, but I can’t seem to get my thoughts in order. Tomorrow, I will have a good post. I promise. I’m not a dead link. And I’m not a mom blog (even though I can hardly keep my mind of my precious little baby girl, June). Here’s what happened in the past 2 weeks:

  1. We felt June kick on the outside of my tummy for the first time – magical.
  2. We had house guests from Missouri.
  3. We are welcoming Joshua White into our home tonight. This will be our first “face-to-face” with anyone from the internets.
  4. My face has gotten fatter – I’m fairly sure of this even though my friends swear it’s not true.
  5. French fries make my feet swell up, but I can’t seem to stay away from them.
  6. I started watching the HBO series, Big Love. It’s just wrong.
  7. We had a snow storm and 2 snow days.
  8. God taught me some lessons.
  9. I miss my blog friends.

Reasonable Fear

Is there such a thing as reasonable fear with the Lord?

I hear statements like, “Every good parent worries for their child.” and I can’t help but wonder if it’s true. Fear is the opposite of faith…so are we just comforting ourselves and making excuses for our fear?

I want to live FREE of fear and the promises in the Word tell me I can. Right???!?!?!?!?!

Resume Writing Tips

The economy sucks…and I can’t do anything about it.

BUT –

I have a knack for writing, editing and formatting resumes for my friends, family, and even former co-workers. If you need some help with your resume, I really want to help you. Here’s some quick tips, but feel free to leave a comment and I’ll email you if you need additional help:

  • Customize your email for the job you are applying for. Each job requirement is different – so should your resume!
  • Keep it to one page if at all possible.
  • Keep it clean and SPELL CHECK!!!!
  • Focus on your skills and strengths – not your daily tasks and duties.
  • You are marketing yourself so be creative and make your experience jump off of the page.
  • Reach out to placement agencies and head hunters. They have trusted relationships with tons of companies. Many companies won’t hire anyone unless it’s through a placement agency or head hunter.
  • Convert your resume to PDF before sending. MS Word formatting doesn’t always “keep”.
  • For examples, templates and more tips, visit Resume Resource.

In addition to helping with your resume, I’ll pray that you find a job – a GREAT job!

Hey…it’s OK! – Pregnancy Edition

It’s OK to:

  1. Not blog for a week
  2. Watch TV all night long with your hubby and neglect the dishes, laundry and dirty bathrooms
  3. Admit that some parts of pregnancy suck
  4. Avoid the person that makes comments about certain body parts getting bigger
  5. To be nervous that you won’t get to buy yourself new clothes because you’ll be buying new clothes for the baby
  6. To be hungry at 8 am, 11 am, 12:30 pm, 3 pm, 6 pm, and 9 pm
  7. To ask your hubby get you water, your special pillow, your laptop, a snack and the remote (in the course of 10 minutes)

Anything you need to remind yourself not to feel guilty about???

Note To Self:

Since I’m so forgetful lately, I’ve made a list of things I continually try to remind myself of…unfortunately, my reminder usually comes too late:

  1. Going to work in yesterday’s makeup is NEVER a good idea.
  2. You like peas now that you’re pregnant.
  3. You don’t like onions now.
  4. When you have to pee in the middle of the night, it’s not as easy to “roll” out of bed.
  5. You put your keys in your jacket pocket last night instead of in your purse.
  6. Go ahead and get the size Medium in maternity clothes instead of the XXL in regular clothes, you’ll feel better about yourself.
  7. When you feel tired on Wednesday and you call Mark to tell him you’re not coming to church, you will regret it.
