weekly update

Ok, this week, I started working at Discover card. It is a pretty decent place to work so far. It really seems like it could be a good job, not to difficult tho and eventually it might put a person to sleep. I will have to see tho. I have had my share of no brain required jobs and can do another one for a while. I just might have to transfer to different departments as soon as I feel no brain is required. They keep telling me that the hardest part to the job is getting used to the jobs computer program and all the screens we have to know. I did find out that this training that I am taking is worth 7 college credits, so if I ever decide to continue my schooling, I will get some additional credits out of the way.
Because of the proximity of the Discover card office to my house, I have decided to try and save as much money as possible and ride my bike to work everyday. I may drive on rainy days tho. Not only does that help with the pollution problem suffered by too many drivers in Phoenix, but I get daily excercize and Discover enters their employees in monthly drawings if they take alternative transportation to work. So it is possible I can win a plasma screen tv (I would have to take the car to work that day!!) or a $20 gift card. It all helps tho. Even if I don't win anything, the better shape I will be in and the money saved from driving will eventually add up.

At church, I am the sunday school president. I am in charge of making sure every class has a teacher and each teacher knows what they are supposed to be teaching. I also have to make sure we have someone in the library and all the kids make it to class. As of now, we have no librarian called, so I and one of my councelers have been taking care of those duties. One of my teachers decided that she didn't want to teach anymore this year and because of a real lack of communication on my part, she didn't plan to teach anymore this year. That means, no teacher for some class. Long story short, I ended up teaching today. I was under the impression that the classes were divided up as 12-13 yr olds, 14-15 yr olds, 16-17 yr olds. Once 18 the kids are supposed to start going to class with the adults. So I am supposed to teach the 14-15 yr olds. I get to class and find out that the classes are broken down like this, 12 yr olds, 13-14 yr olds, 16-17-18yr olds. Notice, no teacher at all for the 15 yr olds!! I am like, WHAT IS GOING ON!! I am going to have to totally re-organize the sunday school. I have to get like 3 new teachers. I can always teach, but I am not supposed to do that, I am supposed to find someone else to teach. We shall see what happens.
Well that is about all for me this week. I hope this finds you all well and I will post more later.

P.S. I don't really have any pictures to add, Kayelee is supposed to be this budding photographer, but I can't get her to take any pictures that I want to use. I will get some this week, one way or another!
