Is the sun really shining?

Could it be? Is the sun really trying to come out?

While the rest of the eastern half of the United States is buried in snow - in the deep south, I see LOTS OF SUNSHINE.

The ironic thing with this, the sun will be blazing, but the temps will be coooool as a cucumber.

I think we need the sun. The winter blues have set in - and it's sincerely not my thing.

Looks like I have a long weekend ahead. Purposely planned by MOI. I have decided to take tomorrow off. With being sick, stress, and lots o work - it was time to take one day to run lots of errands. I know that does not sound like a great day off, but it is a necessary evil, and truly I need a full day for.
Back to the weather thing - I can definitely tell spring is around the corner, because for two days I have what can only be called CONGESTION. Oh yes, that means the flowers are a bloomin'!

I have been looking outside at the trees, and no - I do not see any buds, but I can tell something must be floating around. It happens the same time every year. Nice little allergy situation.

Speaking of the same time every year - it is actually time for my Mid-year review. This time last year, I was at a critical point, unaware that the bottom would fall out without the miracle I needed to keep my job. I am prepared this year, and praying I can make more miracles happen before the end of our fiscal year - which is June 30. Oh sweet media impressions... where art thou?
The egyptian is on an upswing. Yep. He got a job! He will be the most over qualified grocery store worker in all of Birmingham. But the important thing is, he has a job. Degrees or no degrees - tri-lingual or not - certified teacher in numerous countries - does not matter. As an immigrant you have to work 5 times as hard as the next guy, just to prove you are worthy. His time will come... it will.

I was debating whether or not to stop volunteering at church with the youth group. I honestly have "prayed" about it - except, I bet my prayers are a little different than the average religious person. My prayer was more like: Hey God.. I am just tired. Not sure if I am needed. Could you give me a sign?
Sooo.. I get to youth group and proceed to sit and have deep conversations with sooo many of the kids. None of the other youth leaders seem to do that. I may not "lead" as many activities, but I do make a connection with the kids. Perhaps I should stick around. Isn't that what it is all about? OOh.. I don't know.

Big birthday looming. No plans. :-( I refuse to plan my own birthday party - AGAIN. I always have to plan my own. Forget it. If people want to celebrate with me, they know where to call. ;-)

I have babbled long enough. I actually have a draft of a blog based on an issue. But I was waaay to tired to finish the research. It was on feminism. I promise, it is coming soon. Just waaaay too many items to read through.
Many blessings!
