I'm still here!

Hello, friends!  Sorry it has been so long since I last posted.  Let me catch you up on what's been going on (this is the part where you pretend to care)!

As of January 3rd I have started working my third job!  Yes, that's right, third.  My 6 and 8 year old boys seem to have a problem finding employment to help pay for their private school!  So I decided to step up.  I'm working as an aide in the Pre-K classroom at their school and I love it!  The only problem is, I'm still trying to figure out how to fit everything into the new schedule!  But it's coming along.

On a similar note, you work-outside-the-home do you do it?  Getting up every morning and shower/make up/hair and put together an outfit.  Make breakfast, pack lunches, get out the door at exactly 8:08am (1 minute later and you catch all the stoplights.).  Come home from work/school, make snacks, start homework, practice spelling tests, practice Bible verses.  Now start dinner, start a load of laundry, clean up dinner, fold laundry.  Start the boys on their showers and teeth brushing so as not to miss 7:30pm bedtime.  Is 7:30pm too early for me to go to bed, also?  Start another load of laundry.  Monday night, Boy Scouts.  Wednesday night, AWANA.  Friday night, woo-hoo!  Mom's day off is tomorrow!  Oh, yeah...more dinner and laundry.

Work-outside-the-home moms, you have my utmost respect!

In my spare time, I have managed to make a couple of things that I want to share with you so I will be working on some pictures of those things and hope to have them posted soon!

Again, thank you so much for your faithfulness.  Many of you I don't know personally but I feel blessed to know you as my blog friends!  Thanks for your patience and for sticking around while I figured out this new "routine"!


  1. Busy, busy!! Yikes. I'm sure your kiddos are worth it, though! ;-)

  2. As a working-outside-the-home mom, I am constantly trying to find balance. Eventually, you learn to get really good (or pretending to be really good!) at juggling. :)

    I found that it helps to do as much as you can the night before - lunches packed, clothes laid out, etc. Oh, and a little red wine never hurts either!
