I’m back! I haven’t been writing in here for a while. There have been many good things happened these past months. We thank God for all the blessings.

Jason had an undisclosed surgery done again in May. Thanks God that he did well and recovered from it and that it worked.

We’re still fishing and catching bass.

We had a baby shower for my brother and sister-in-law in August. They’re due in October, next week! Very exciting!

God blessed us with a brand new truck in September! We did not expect it. Now we have a reliable and durable vehicle to explore more fishing lakes in NC.

We had a leak in our garage roof for a year and managed to temporarily patch it for a while. Instead of hiring someone to do it, we took upon ourselves to fix the front and back roof with the volunteering to help from my brother, sister-in-law, and our neighbor Brad, who knows about roofing. Thanks God this big project is done!

We recently sponsored a child through Compassion International in September, a girl from Ethiopia. Hoping that we can do much more.

Other than that, work is going well and still doing PRN at the same place. My health is good and so is Jason’s. Thanks be to God.

Bass Fishing

IMG_20170126_111016_457.jpg

Yesterday the weather was so nice! It was in a high of 70s and sunny! My husband and I took advantage of the beautiful day to go fishing. We caught so many bass! Actually my husband was catching most of them, maybe 30? We didn’t keep count because we were catching them left and right and having so much fun! I love that you can dupe the fish with artificial lures and jigs and catch them. Once the fish is on, the fight begins!

We don’t always keep all the fish that we catch. We release them back and keep a few that are within the quantity and size limit to keep. My family and friends love to eat fish and they always ask us about it. We want to be a blessing and share with those who loves eating fish, in the meantime, be considerate of the bass population and sport. Also not poisoning our family and friends with too much mercury and selenium too.

I gave in and shared my photo on FB via Instagram. The other week my mom asked why I haven’t posted any fishing pictures lately. I told her that FB is evil, lol. She insisted that I can still share fishing photos with family and friends. I guess I can and just detach myself from the negative things on there.

A Slow Month

Work is slow. 😦 I worked one day last week and this week I’m working none, unless I get a call that they need me. I like being a PRN nurse but the hours aren’t usually guaranteed. I’d like to work a minimum of 3 days/24 hrs per week if I can, but right now doctors’ schedules are very light.

My husband told me not to worry and enjoy my time off while I can. I’m trying to stay positive although that can be challenging. I’m used to working ever since I was 14, and I come from a hard working family. It’s been ingrained in me. It’s like I can’t stop thinking about work and everyone else is working, but I’m not, and I’m quite healthy now so why can’t I do full time anymore? I can’t have this discussion with my husband, otherwise we’ll get into an argument and his last words are always that he doesn’t  want me to end up in the hospital again. So I usually leave it as it is.

God has been good to us and I wish I can elaborate of all the things that He’s done. He’s taken care of us and given us time to spend together. Even though I don’t work often, but I’m thankful that I get to see my husband, cook and make lunch and dinner for him. I’m glad too that he works from home, and sometimes on a nice day he sets his work aside and takes me fishing. And you know, I’m never going to turn that down.
