Fabulous news!

I just had to post this one. God has been very gracious and I have lost a bit of weight this summer through no intentional effort of my own. I believe the increased activity of living in the city, combined with working an insane number of hours a week has been the best diet yet:-) I haven't weighed myself since I was back in MO at Memorial Day, but I am guessing that I lost between 10 and 20 lb since then.

Well, this weight-loss has meant that my clothes don't fit me and I have gradually purged my closet down to almost nothing. This resulted in few play clothes and almost no work clothes. Old Navy had a big sale and I am proud to say that all the clothes I bought were either a size 16 or a size Large. This may not seem like a big deal to you, but I literally can't remember the last time I wore a size large (2001, maybe?). I will try to get some pics up in the near future. I feel fabulous and I think I look pretty good;-)

Job update

Well everyone, more news on the job front. For those of you who were praying or inquiring, Moody has decided to pursue another applicant for the Assistant Dean of International Students. I am very disappointed, as it was a job that interested me greatly with an organization that I felt I could support wholeheartedly. The recruiter called this morning, thankfully, so now I am on the hunt for a new position.

The last day of my current job is this Friday, so I have contacted the temp agency that Sara works through and hopefully they will have something available for me. I am also going to check out some other options, but I am not sure what will be the best lead. Please pray for me as I continue this search. My whole being yearns for regular hours, an easy commute and decent pay. I would love for it to be in the context of an organization with similar goals to mine, but that may be too much to ask for right now.

I want to post more, but that will have to wait until later. I wish you were here so I could actually hug you!
