No Longer a SAHM

Short post, but I have to share...
It is official, I am no longer a SAHM! I recently accepted a job offer and I am so excited. It is a job in HR (my field I thought I was going to have to abandon), and the pay covers more than childcare.
Now off to find childcare as I start in 1 week. I will have to figure out a new name for my blog. Any suggestions?

Gems of wisdom from a 5 year old

This week ONE is attending basketball camp at a local college. It is important to note that she is extremely familiar with this college, its campus and many of the athletic staff (including the women's basketball players and coaches) as we are active supporters.She loves camp, but was a little apprehensive before her first day. This led to the first gem of the week. She was trying to get all of the facts and asking a million and one questions when she asked me if the camp was going to be in the gym or in the woods. I will admit, it took me a bit to figure out what she was asking but when I did I couldn't help but laugh.

Gem number two was a bit more serious. ONE has been very attentive to all of the coverage of Michael Jackson's death. We pass a cemetery on our way home from basketball camp. So today we played twenty questions on death. From how do people die, how do they get in the ground, why do we put people in the ground, it looks like a lot of work. But the comment that had me laughing was when she asked "Where to you buy such big shinny rocks to put on the dead people, I don't remember seeing anything like that at Walmart? I think I need to expand her shopping horizons:)

I am back--for a bit

I know I have been remiss in my blogging. For my followers I apologize but honestly you didn't want my company.

I have been struggling with a low. No I am not mourning the loss of Michael Jackson or even Billy Mays, I am in desperate need of returning to the workforce. The stress has started to impact other facets of my life other than just me feeling sorry for myself. My attitude towards the kids, my relationship with my husband and even my faith have suffered. I have felt that my life has been on hold for the last year and I am trying to to be resentful of it or the circumstance around it.

So I am struggling to rebound. My normal blogging time has been reallocated to job searching. In addition, my husband has been home more. This cuts down on my computer time as he needs our one and only functioning computer to do his work from home. So when he is here I don't feel able to just putz on the 'puter.

So I apologize, I should be able to return to regular posting in August when he has to return to work on a normal schedule. So until then I will post when I am able and willing. Until then I hope you are enjoying your summer as much as or more than I am.
