Sure wish you guys could come out here to the States. We got a lot of issues, but we're not a Socialist country yet, and we have lots of opportunity still.

Almost looks like G/F had more than one browser open and made this post in response to another thread. You'll have to excuse him....he's getting old.

My heart was in the right place.. My MIND on the other hand ?

I take a lot of medication. Yeh that's it... the medicine.

Well, I have news. It's good and bad at the same time. I was approved for second appointment starting last night.

At my job, “second appointment” is when a supervisor works their regular appointment full time and the second one is as a direct care staff (which is who I supervise) for additional pay. I can work up to 19 hours so we’re starting with 2 shifts to see if that’s enough. Long story short, I’ll work my regular 40 as well as two additional shifts that can be up to 8 hours (meaning every Monday and Tuesday I’ll work from 8 AM to 11 PM, unless I get early release). Last night I got early release which means I left at 9:30 PM. 

So good news is that second appointment pays pretty well. Bad news is I'll be working about 60 hours a week.

Please continue to pray for me, that I have the energy to do a good job and not burn out and more importantly, that God helps us get our finances in order and this is a short term thing.

Well, I made it through my first two days. Monday I got off at 9:30 which was still a 13 hour day, but not terrible. Yesterday I didn't leave until 11:30 PM so I worked a 15 and a half hour day... and today I'm exhausted.

I really don't want this to be a long term solution. I can see myself burning out in about 6 months of this. Thanks for all of you who are praying.

Last night we got some bad news about our financial situation. Our church can't afford to keep my wife on staff anymore. She wasn't exactly bringing in a fortune but we just lost money we couldn't afford to lose (her job covered rent every month).

This is the third thing in the last 4 years that has screwed us up. Every time we seem to be on track to getting our finances in order, something happens (I was demoted to avoid layoff, my wife had to leave her job to get back surgery). It's like, what the hell God? We try to get our crap together and some bull-you-know-what happens? It's like, what's the point of even trying anymore?

Sorry for ranting but I'm just tired of it. Why even pray and try to do what God wants if it never works?

So I just finished my fourth round of second appointment and... I survived. Four weeks of two fifteen hour days back to back. I've been hitting 40 hours by the time I go home on Wednesday.

Our finances, however, are not improving yet because of the delay in pay periods. I only got a little extra on my check today but on the 30th it will be noticeably more. Only problem is, we still owe half our rent and we don't have enough, unless we don't want electricity or food until then.

Honestly, I was about to just give up and let whatever happen and move back in with my parents. I sincerely don't know why we can't just get it together and get our finances in order.

Good news though - I got an email about a job I applied for several weeks ago telling me they'd like to interview me but before we schedule it, they need to know my salary requirement. I told her what I currently make and that I'd like a 10% increase (thinking there was no way) and they scheduled the call for tomorrow!

So long story short, if you'd pray that if this is the door that I need to walk through that I would, that we would miraculously have the money for rent and that my wife would find a job to replace her income. Thanks...

So a couple things...

Several months ago, my boss's boss told me that I was the "heir apparent" for my boss's position when she retired. A week ago today, my boss told me she was retiring effective September 1. I went to her boss to see if I was still being thought of as the successor and was basically told I was not.

My boss's boss feels that because the place I work is so toxic, I'm too burned out to do a good job in the position.

Thankfully, we weren't banking on it, but it's still tough to hear that folks don't think you'll do a good job in the position that would be your next step on the ladder.

So for now, I'm staying put but still looking at my options, seeing what's out there.

Second thing, my wife applied for a job and I would appreciate your prayers about it. Its something she would like a lot and the pay is good for entry level. We're praying she gets it as her last paycheck comes August 1 and then it'll just be my pay to get us through...

Third, I will be scheduling to sit for the GMAT (the test to get into business school) in late August and I need to first pay for it, and second study for it.

Thanks gang...

So here's an update with some continued prayer requested.

First, my boss's last day is next Wednesday. I'm going to apply for her position just for the hell of it and see what happens.

Second, another colleague's last day is next Wednesday. She's our Staff Development Officer. I'm more than qualified for the job and would love to have it more than being promoted to my boss's old position. I'm applying for both and praying for this one.

Third, I'm still going to go back to school but not until August of next year. My wife just started a new job after losing hers back in June and we need to focus on a budget for our household before I can add an expense that big. Depressing, but please pray for me to be patient. Also, some help from God with the budget.

Thanks all!

Glad to hear that Mrs Ish was able to get another job.  Praying you will be promoted to the Staff Development Officer position.

Okay, so I'm still waiting on the above two positions and in the meantime....

I had a phone interview today for a position that would really be great. The one thing I don't have much experience with in the HR realm is recruiting. This position is a recruiting position... and when talking with the lady that will be my boss today, we really clicked and it seemed to go really well.

I should hear back Wednesday either way.

Also, I've felt the call to teach at church in some capacity. I've been praying about it and without me seeking it out, our worship pastor asked me to teach a short devotion every week at practice. I told her I'd pray about it and I think I'm going to do it.

Please pray that I have wisdom and whatever is supposed to happen will happen.

Thanks!

Praying that God will put you where you want him, and that you'll have the discernment and wisdom needed to do the job (regardless of what it is).

Praying for you to get clear direction and confirmation from the Lord.

I forgot to post that I heard back Wednesday and I have an interview Thursday of this week.

I also talked with our worship leader  and I will be doing some teaching at practice on Thursday nights starting next week. I'm excited!

Also, if you think about it, I applied for another job and have an in. A good friend works at the place and is going to talk to one of the hiring managers today.

It feels like a door is about to open and it's very, very weird.

Yes, it's very weird when it feels like you've been stuck for so long.  But it's such a relief when the change does happen.
