This week I had a lot going on, particularly at work. But I also had a paper to write for school so after my long days at work, I had to come home and work on my paper. My week was insane so today it was no surprise that I was exhausted mentally, physically, and emotionally. So, I took some Personal Time from work this afternoon; I came home around 1:00 and took a 5-hour nap!!!
At some point, I might blog about the particulars of my week, but I am too tired to do that right now. But I did do something cool with work: I participated in a program called Legislative Partners where we learn about issues and bills affecting State Farm and take them to our State Legislatures (literally, we take them to the Capital). More to come another day...
I am kind of at a crossroads with my future. I know in a previous blog I mentioned that I will be graduating soon and am still uncertain about my future. Well, I have decided to take a big step that could result in me moving back to MN within months. While I will make the steps necessary to pursue this specific opportunity (more details to follow... in a few weeks... maybe), it is ultimately not up to me or even the others involved in the decision making. It is up to God.
Please pray that God will make his will clear as I pursue this opportunity. And please pray that despite my desires, God will help me (and my parents) trust that His decision is best. Moving back to MN would be a very bitter-sweet move: I would be moving closer to my immmediate family, yet I'd be leaving many friends and family (who I love so much) behind in CA.
I've proven to be a Minnesota girl, through and through! I live in the twin cities which is about 3 hours from where my parents, brothers, sister-in-law and nieces, Taylor, Hannah, and Abigail live. I work full time at my job as an auto claim processor for State Farm. I love to hang out with friends have intelligent conversations about God, politics, life, whatever... I am not always an expert on the subject, but I just love to have good convo's and I love to learn what other people believe and why. My other favorite things to do are hang out with my awesome husband, Karl, my family, play ice hockey, go on trips, and sleep in on my days off. And of course, I love naps... they are seriously a form of recreation!
