church nursery=birth control sabbath




actually surprising enough it was the calmest 2 hours of nursery i've ever experienced. thus there was only 7 kids and i was back-up for the subsitute teacher but it went amazing well. i remember being asked to substitute in the past and leaving thinking i'd never have children, EVER, so maybe it's a grace of God, or a sweet mercy from Jesus but whichever i'm grateful that i made it through today.
other church recap is i love being confused with my little sister. we're 7 years apart and i think yes we look alike but not that alike, she looks more asian.two older men, bless their hearts, gave me a hug at church man #1 asked if i was ready to go back to school and i informed him that actually my younger sister went back to school and that i had actually just completed my masters and am in the process of interviewing for jobs. he was a little flustered and confused but made the correction by stating that now it was the pressure of putting all that info to work. i felt like saying... actually i've been in the "real world" before and had a "real" job and was even a supervisor so i've actually been there and am just returning again, but i just smiled.

man #2 also got me confused with "the favorite" and asked when i was getting married. (more confusion becasue my lil' sis's boyfriend flew from hawaii and was there one week in church, so he obviously thought i was her or he's completely rude, which i doubt.) i told him no, i wasn't getting married but informed him that i was looking for a good one and then i'd make the plung.
my time is ticking here at home, good thing it's my last sunday here, i'm heading north starting this week.

Ha! classic. Oh, and you know, that IS the real reason why I came here to BYUH, because there wasn't enough Asians in Idaho...I felt like I didn't fit in...

And yes, I have been asked at LEAST 5 times if I "have Asian decent"...

Oh Jessie... I just had to make a comment on your blog about this post. I am seriously with you on so many levels. 1st the nursery... its other peoples kids that make you think that you will never want to have any. 2nd the whole man#1 & man #2... I am sure I could guess... Does anything need to be said. I hate this invisable time table, that apprently, you are never on the right page... Good luck with all your interviews. they all sound really good.
