Preparing for Christmas

Today, well actually the next three days, will be extremely busy for me (providing there is work available for me to do - which there should be). As many of you know I work from home doing medical transcription. The way we get paid is the current months completed work (transcription) is paid out on the 10th and 25th of the following month. So whatever work I get completed by Midnight on the 1st goes toward my paycheck on Dec 10th and Dec 25th.

Jason is a GREAT father, husband and provider. He is making sure the kids have a wonderful Christmas, and he always makes sure I have a great Christmas too. This year I want him to have a very special Christmas. I know it will be special enough just because he will actually be HOME for two weeks (then its back to Germany), but I want to give him a special gift to (to show him how much I love and appreciate him). So I have three days left of hard work to make as much money as I can. Although I have some of my bills I have to get caught up FIRST... I am just trusting the Lord to provide enough work for me that everything will work out.

WOW.. Can you believe it.. Christmas will be here before we know it!! Jason will be here in 24 days. Well I better go get busy with this transcription!

Have a GREAT day everyone.

Hey! Thanks for commenting on my blog the other day. I just wanted to say, my brother-in-law is a Marine and is always going overseas. So my family knows what it is like to have a soldier in the family. It is hard and I admire all of the soldiers and their families for doing what they do.
