As some of you know this coming Sunday my family and I are finally becoming catechumen. I'm perhaps a little bit excited
by this, of course. The last couple weeks, however have been doing their best, albeit unsuccessfully to drain that excitement though. I understand it works this way frequently.
It started with all the rain we've been having finding its way through the roof in the laundry room and dropping some plaster on our heads, followed by the refrigerator deciding to stop cooling and the mechanic telling me that my car has a cracked head or at least a blown head gasket. All this at a time when I've been having to get money from my folks to help us meet the monthly bills until I get the year end raise from my new job.
(I had to take a temporary wage cut though the at the end of the year I will make more than if I had stayed put. At the same time I'm also dealing with the effect of having to pay a couple hundred dollars more per month for insurance due to the governor's changes, which I still support despite the fact that they effect me.)
I have started a second job but I'm trying to think outside the box for ways to really increase my income. It just seems things have been piling on lately
I appreciate your prayers.
