I don't ask for much

but I am really desperate. I called Mary (the manager at Subway) and asked for a few days to think this whole thing over. I want to be sure this is what I want to do so I told her and she was very understanding. I was supposed to work tomorrow but I asked if I could just have a couple more days to be absolutely sure because to be honest, I have NO IDEA what I am supposed to do. I need a job and Subway is a sure bet but I don't wanna go back just because I can and in a couple of weeks or even months have another job come along and leave again. I don't wanna to that to Mary.

So I am asking for prayer. For guidance from God to let me know what He wants. I know I may not me thrilled with going back to Subway, but if it is what He wants, I'll do it. I have had a couple of other job offers so I'm going to check into them and see what happens.

On another note, Ben and I have been asked to help out with something that will use both our time and our ministy. I won't bore you with the details but we also need guidance from God here. When we were asked, it just kind of hit us and we think we know what we need to do but we want to be sure it's what God wants.

So next time you are talking to God it would be much appreciated if you would ask Him what the heck he wants Ben and Jada to do with their lives.

Father God, thank you for the life you have given us. I pray that you would give us the stength to do what you are calling us to do and Your knowledge to help guide us. I know you will provide. I love you.

So I was completely wrong

about this bank job being awesome. Don't get me wrong, it was first. Then the branch manager came along. It really makes me angry that one person had to go ruin it for everyone. If you don't know what I'm talking about, basically, she is the devil. Actually just imagine Professor Umbridge from The fifth Harry Potter and you have her to the T. She is horribly mean and condecending. Anyway I thought it over and over about a million times and I had decided (after she yelled at me one last time today) that I wasn't gonna take it anymore.

I quit.

I just clocked out at the end of the night and sent her an email saying I would not be back.

If that sounds rude, it's nothing compared to what all she has done/said to me over the past 5 months.

If you are saying to yourself "What the heck is she going to do now?!" The answer is I'm going back to Subway. Yes that's what I said. Subway. I may not have liked it much more but at least my boss didn't yell at me and treat me like a child. I know I won't be there for the rest of my life but I am going back as Assistant Manager and might even be making more than I did before I left. I am going to talk with my manager tomorrow afternoon to get it all sorted out but she is beyond glad to have me back.

I never in a million years thought I'd say it but I am excited about going back. It is more relaxed and hopefully less stressful.

Anyway some of you may think this is a horrible idea but I really don't care. I know this is what I need right now.

Wish me luck!

New Love

So I went to get my books for school today and on the way back I thought I'd stop at the Humane Society to see if they had any dogs I'd like. I really didn't think they would because they never do but today my luck changed.

Ben and I have been kind of looking for a dog lately but have come up empty handed. Well today was the day.

As I was walking through the kennel looking at all the dogs, I stopped in my tracks. There sat a dog, while all the others were howling and barking, sweet and quiet and sad looking. Teddy was his name. I immediately asked if I could get him out. I walked him around and asked about him. The lady said he had just been brought back after being adopted because the person didn't have enough time for him. This made my heart sink. I asked how much he was and she said since he had been paid for once, we could have him for only $25. What else could I have asked for??? I told her I had to talk to Ben and we might be back.

Then I took a deep breath and drove home thinking about how I would ask Ben if I could have this HUGE dog.

Ben is not much for dogs and I thought for sure he'd say something along the lines of "We don't have room for a big dog" or "I don't really want a dog now". But still I went home with high hopes.

I talked to Ben and explained everything and he agreed to go look at him. We took Ozzy to see how they would get along.

Needless to say Ozzy fell in love as did Ben once we got there. We let them play for a while and they got along GREAT. Teddy was very gentle and calm. So we asked the lady for some time to talk about it.

After about 20 minutes of pondering the pros and cons Ben finally said OK! I jumped up and down. I finally got the big dog I always wanted.

Now even though he was named Tedy and that fits him very well because he is very cuddly, I didn't like that name. We got home and thought of what WE wanted to name him and came up with Cyrus. I think it fits him just as well but is more us.

So without further ado meet our new baby Cyrus. He is 1 and 1/2 and is very very good. He already knows "no" ,"sit" and, "lay down". In other terms , he is perfect!

and he says he doesn't like dogs.
All wore out!
Well all I have to say is I pretty much love this dog.
