Don't worry be happy now!


Does anyone else feel this way lately? Right now I am totally kicking myself for not finishing nursing school! I knew the time would come after having Kai that I would need to get job and with the pure uncertainty of our economy, the time is here. With gas being $6/gal and milk $11/gal you can imagine the coast of living on this beautiful island, EXPENSIVE. So I open the newspaper to look for a job and in the help wanted section it was full of personal ads offering THEIR service. "Are you kidding me?" I thought. A big industry for Hawaii residents was the airlines and they all went under so now the unemployment rate in Hawaii is SUPER high, along with all this chaos on wall street and even more jobs are being threatened. So the job hunt is on and this time it really is going to be a hunt. Have you ever heard "write it sown make it happen" will since this is really the only place I write, I am writing it down. I have a fun, well-paying job TODAY! This is me being positive or at least trying too! In an effort to stay positive I put this song on our blog, Don't Worry - Be Happy and let the words get stuck in my head, I figure it is better to keep singing 'don't worry be happy now' then to think of all the bad things that are happening. I really should only watch the news maybe once a week, too much bad news makes me cranky. Wish me luck!!!

Wow! you might want to take calcium supplements instead of drinking milk. lol I love that pic of Kai! made me laugh to see that worried look. Just remember what you told me the other day when I was freaking out about being jobless, "the worst thing that could happen is death, so even if your homeless and living out of a tent, it isn't that bad."
