Ruth Came to Visit Us....

Hi all if you remember Ruth from Uganda. She came to visit last night for a couple of hours. She is here doing some leg work for the Orphanage. She is doing loads of speaking while she is here. You should have seen us when we saw eachother last night. We were so happy to see eachother. We cleared the air about something that happened here also. If any of you remember when I said something about Ruth going to stay with another couple here in Green Bay?? Well she was treated very poorly by this other couple and never said anything to me about it. I felt so bad. Well here are some photo's of us from last night. But we are going to see her on Saturday again.

Jeff and I were making phone calls for Ruth to meet a few more people while she is here before she leaves and she was reading to the girls. I got the giggles while on the phone last night. It was funny. She was reading Goldilocks and the three bears and doing the up and down voice of papa bear, mama bear and little bear.. It was funny to listen to her.

Here are photo's of just us adults. Amazing to see us together again. She is speaking Friday at a place here in town and Jeff and I are going to see her speak. We were teasing her about being honoured guests since we brought her here last December already. Life has taken us in many directions. She has 60 children in her charge now instead of 47 like when she was here in January. She has aquired the foundation for her new orphanage. She has gotten like 3 water towers built. This is all because we introduced to her to the American Way.. Or our ability to donate money to the those that need it. I know most of you are wondering where I am going with this. No where to be exact. I am happy to be a friend of such need and just glad she is part of our lives.

Other than this life is stressful here again. I am not working as much as I could be and I ended up passing up a job offer this morning because I didnt hear my cell phone ring. It was a temp to hire job. I am pissed off at myself for that one. Damn me.. We could really use the money right now. School is going good but only one problem I am having is how do I get certified after finishing. I believe I need to get certified also. That is another 500 dollars or so down the drain. Esp with no work in site right now. I have applied and tried to finish school and learn the job. But the place applied wouldnt hire me. Oh well it sucks but its the way it is.

I want to cry right now.Just fed up and fustrated with life. Like I told Jeff this morning at least McD's was a job and a paycheck but I just couldnt handle any more of there bull shit. I was so damned fed up. But now I feel bad for quitting. It may have been the only thing I had for a long time. I am just hoping the economy comes back up soon where I can find something a little more permanant. Anyway not to depress any of you more than I already am.

Talk to you all soon. Take care and hope you all have a wonderful week if I dont make it back here in the mean time. Oh by the way I have to give up on Ebay also for the time being. I have lost more money than made money lately.

What the Hell.. I would be pissed off.. I hope this kid gets alot of money from this. I understand they took the Pledge of Allegience out of many schools because of the Under God phrase..Yikes..

I'm glad for you that things are patched up with Ruth. Perhaps she learned after staying with others that you weren't so bad - hospitality here is likely very different than back home for her. (She seemed to expect an awful lot from you didn't she?) Anyway - you have a big heart to leave the past behind.

I would have thought that when you completed school you WERE certified - you have to pay an extra fee for this?

You were very miserable at McD's. If you hadn't quit when you did, you may have had many reasons to quit since. Keep trying. Try to be patient. What about a pizza place or something like that?

I know it's tough. Hang in there though, it can't last forever. Everyone is finding it difficult. I keep hoping things will change here soon. I'm tired of being poor and in debt. Oh, I'm not as poor as I used to be, but I'm still not where I want or need to be.

I hope the job situation looks up for you really soon. In the meantime, you're not alone - sooo many people can't find the job they want right now, or even any job at all in some cases. Things will get better sooner than later, I think, so just hang in there and don't put too much stress on yourself over it. You're doing your best right now.

I bet it feels really good to have some emotional closure between you all.

Relationships take a lot of care and responsibility and it's easy to forget that hen we're involved in them. I bet you have a great sense of peace about Ruth now and I am glad for you.

I'm glad you had such a good time with Ruth. And I hope she is able to raise more money for her needs with the Orphanage.

Prayers coming your way that a GOOD Job opens up for you!

Jeannie yes you and me both. I am glad the air has been cleared up between us. I missed her dearly. I am not going through an actual school like a college. I mean I am but its a college where they send me the material. I might be not sure of that yet..

VV its really hard esp with Jeff being sick right now. Or we think he's sick..

Sme Its really hard right now. I do beat myself up over it sometimes.. I just keep asking why i quit sometimes.

Candy she is a great friend and I am glad to say I know her. She is doing what she has to do for those kids.

OOL I have to admit I slept myself out a job offer the other morning. It was with a temp agency but not the one I am with. It was temp to hire.. Yikess huh???

Kat yes us too. We just keeping hoping.

Tshsmom Yes 2010 hopefully will be better for us all. Its been a tough year.

Asterisk yes its been rough and I have been through a load lately. But with my dear friends here in blogland I have kept my sanity..
