>i think i want to put all my ideas in one blog.. regular life happenings, my spiritual growth and my weight loss journey. i definitely haven’t been updating like i “should”.
i got off of the workout and eat healthy train over our break, vacation, whatever you want to call it. looks like i gained a few pounds. i’m at 160, which is the top of my acceptable weight range (155-160). i did 20 minutes on the elliptical, arm exercises and then ten minutes on the stair-stepper. wow. i’m in pain this morning. i’m going to try body flow at noon. i love yoga so i think i will like it.
i am just going to be honest about korea: i am frustrated and impatient. i emailed the S1 of aaron’s brigade and all they could tell me was that they can’t give me an estimate and that there’s a waitlist. we are on step 3 of 8 and you can’t get on the waitlist until you get to step 7. i guess housing at humphreys is really backed up. you think? with 18 months to get on post? we don’t want to live on post anyway. we have no children so this process should go a little smoother.
i just don’t understand why this command sponsorship process is so darned difficult. technically i could go over there without being on his orders, but it’s not recommended. i don’t even think i can get my military passport and korean visa from rock island arsenal until i’m on orders.
so meanwhile, while my husband is there and we’re separated again, i’m sitting in our apartment with most everything taken off the walls and boxes sitting around. i have no job as i quit my teaching job because eventually i will go to korea, just a matter of when. while i am still getting paid from that until august, i would like a job so i have something to do while i wait and can contribute more financially. but who will hire me not knowing when i might be quitting?
my luck would be that i would get a job and two weeks later be heading to korea. i feel at a loss right now. i’ve been keeping up on relationships with family and friends and i’ve prepared myself as much as i can for the changes ahead, barring our apartment. i need to do some work around here. but i’m ready to go.
i read through matthew 6 last night. i was convicted of my obsession with finding out information and just worry in general. “do not be anxious then, saying ‘what shall we eat?’ or ‘what shall we drink?’ or ‘with what shall we clothe ourselves?’ for all these things the gentiles eagerly seek; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. but seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. therefore do not be anxious for tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. each day has enough trouble of its own.”
i am just thankful that God is bigger than any man-made entity, including the army, and His will will prevail above everything else.
