You know you’re busy at work when . . .
  • your blueberry tea gets cold before you can drink it.
  • you don’t have time to eat a single something between 7am and 12pm.
  • you forget to open up Pandora (turn on music) until 2:30pm.
  • you can’t respond to e-mails within a half hour like you usually do.

Why in the world do I wait so long to post? Now I have a million things to write about.

Road trip to NC and VA with Bryce. Good times, for sure. Three whole days with my wonderful boyfriend. We are crazy -- about 1700 miles in 3 days -- and it was completely worth it. We left Friday morning, visited Brandon in NC, my grandparents in VA, Bryce's family friends in VA, and arrived home very early Monday morning. (And I worked that morning.) I loved the drive-time conversations, time with my relatives, gazing at the amazing colors in the mountains while driving, Starbucks on the way home, and the opportunity to meet Bryce's friends.

My wonderful job. I praise God for a job. I praise God that the investing company where I work is still doing well despite the market upheavals. I praise God that they're able to keep me incredibly busy . . . and they seemed to be pleased with the work that I am doing for them.

My sometimes overwhelming job. Okay--so the job can be a tad overwhelming at times. I wear quite a few different hats for about five or six executives . . . so I have many tasks and requests coming at me constantly from different sources. This makes it hard to prioritize and I do get slightly frustrated at times. But, I continue to breathe, take one day at a time, and just get done what is humanly possible for one Jana in 9-10 hours a day.

Family dinner at Triangle Park. (Minus a certain Jessica Alaine Eberly - sigh - sad.) I sure enjoyed the time with the boys and my parents. We went while Jason was home on fall break. Laughing and talking and bothering each other and listening to Jason talk really fast and leaning on my dad and completely enjoying my salmon and shrimp - my favorites.

I'll finish for now with a quote from Psalm 105. Lately, I am blown away by the greatness of my God and yet His concern with the smallest details of my life. Jesus loves me . . . and I am in awe.

Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name;
make known among the nations what he has done.
Sing to him, sing praise to him;
tell of all his wonderful acts.
Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice.
Look to the LORD and his strength;
seek his face always.
Remember the wonders he has done . . .
