I try to keep job related things away from this blog, but today...that is not the case.  I am so frustrated with my job outside of the home.  I just want to SCREAM!!!  I have felt this way for some time now and it seems to be getting worse.  I don't know what to do.  Do I quit and stay home with my children? (which is what I really want to do) or Do I look for another job?  Right now, I am the only one who is working a steady job.  I am grateful for my husband who has stayed home with the kids to oversee their homeschool lessons, take care of them and the house.  I know that Scott is ready to go back to work and I am ready to stay home.  What to do?!?!?  I feel a change needs to happen...SOON.

Venting over.

Now back to regular blog posts of family, homeschool, cats and chickens :)

These are 'Egypt' salt maps.  In 2009, the kids learned about Ancient Egypt and this was one of their activities.

Scripture Sunday

"And know ye that ye shall be judges of this people, according to the judgement which I shall give unto you, which shall be just.  Therefore, what manner of men ought ye to be?  Verily I say unto you, even as I am" ~ 3 Nephi 27:27   (this scripture was referenced from Hymn#131 "More Holiness Give Me")

"But, behold, I say unto you, that you must study it out in your mind; then you must ask me if it be right, and if it is right I will cause that your bosom shall burn within you; therefore, you shall feel that it is right." ~ Doctrine and Covenants 9:8  

The above scripture was given as a reference during the first talk at Sacrament this morning.

Nick drew this picture a few years ago.  This is the Carpathia that rescued the survivors of Titanic.
