Ciao Amici!

First, thank you all so very much for your good thoughts that you are sending my way :) I have definitely needed them more than once recently. After much thought, frustration, and the dread of impending doom, I have decided that I am going to get on board with a temp agency for now. I will continue to send out feelers and resumes, but I won't be quite as desperate, if you know what I mean. Now, I know that this may seem like a fairly lame cop-out, but I very much think (as does Josh) that this could be a good move for me right now. After all, it was through the contacts that I made with a temp position by which I landed the awesome job that I had in Louisiana. 
Mostly, this way, I will have some source of income and be able to make professional contacts at the same time. Also, it will give me an opportunity to "try-on" various industries and companies, you know? I have been stuck in some pretty horrid jobs, and it's the worst feeling when you go from relief at being employeed to awash with disgust and loathing in 2.5 seconds. I'm sure there are those of you out there who are with me in this. Anyway...
Moving on, Josh and I visited a church last night. We're starting with evening services because when the hubby is working nights, it's best to try to avoid disrupting his sleep schedule by forcing him to stay up until noon. So, we're starting with night services and then we'll look into mornings if we don't find anything in the evenings. It will be slow going most definitely. Josh works every other Sunday, so to find a church home that we both like, we can only visit some place new every other week. It's good, though. I'm very excited. I think that God has some major plans for us.
In other news, my own special craft room (which I'm already extremely attached to) is getting mostly organized. I'm even ready to start all of the twenty thousand sewing and decorating projects which I've been scheming about for so long :D
Well, I'm off. I'm hoping to give my blog some new clothes in the next week or so, so I need to get started on that, and I need to wake the puppies up so that they don't sleep all day and play all night again.
Much love to you all, and have a happy day!

How close are you to the 495 beltway loop? In McLean Bible church is a huge mega type church with I think 3 evening services on Sunday. I haven't been there in over 8 years, but I know it is getting bigger all the time. It is in VA. Not sure where you are in MD exactly... just thought I would let you know. I went there in college.

Temp agencies can lead to great jobs! I worked for one my first summer in college, and the first place they sent me liked me so much, I kept coming back to them every summer and holiday break! I know plenty of people who have found great jobs through temp agencies.

So... does this mean you're gonna read Twilight now? ;)

And actually, sometime I would love to have you show me how to make the headers for my sections.

There is no such thing as a stupid job. As you already know, God has a purpose for each and everything we do in life. I can't wait to hear where this temporary job takes you. I also look forward to seeing your projects!

I am SO GLAD to be out of customer service, lol. So so glad.

I think going to a temp agency is a really great idea.
