What to do... what to do...

I feel like I'm back to the question of " What do I do with my life?"
I spent way too much money trying to get my credential, and now I don't even know if I can finish due to that stupid CSET....if only I had a time machine.... but alas, I don't.
I'm sitting here thinking, I know I want to be a mom someday, but I'm not ready for that right now. So until then, I could be a receptionist (but unless it's somewhere with a lot of nice people, I will get bored; been there, done that); I can continue to sub (but we need money to live); I could be a teacher (I've been trying for 3 1/2 years!!); I could be an interpreter (sounds awesome! more school? Yes, but maybe it'll be different. But what if I suck at it? Then I'm right back where I'm at now); I could do photography (sadly, I don't have enough confidence in myself)....

When asked : What makes you passionate in life? My answer : God, students, and science. What else can I do with that combination of passion?

I like this quote that my pastor put on his facebook status today. It really meant a lot to me when I read it:

"All holy desires grow by delay; and if they diminish by the delay, then they were never holy desires." -St. Gregory

So over the last 3-4 years, my main desires have not diminished... hmm....

Abba, guide me. Please? Amen.

Maybe once a week??

Well, obviously the writing once a day didn't really work out so well. I'm thinking I'll shoot for once a week.... but even that might be a stretch for me. We'll see. We've been busy with Mika, work, and problems with our apartment complex.
Mika got fixed on Monday and has been a pain (not IN pain, but A pain) since. Poor thing is supposed to be isolated and lay low for two weeks. Not going to happen.
Work has been good. It's down to less than a week left of the school year! My kids have a written final on Monday, we're going to watch a movie on Tuesday, and then Wednesday/Thursday we will be going to a restaurant and the kids have to sign the whole time. It's fun and a good experience for them.
The drama with our apartment complex.... it's a long story and I don't want to post much about it until it's over. But we could use your prayers with all of that; prayers for peace, patience, and favor.
