I woke up this morning with a neighbor at my door offering to do one of my more overwhelming projects for $75/hr.  I made an executive decision to buy peace of mind and said absolutely!  It is expensive but I need to get some things off my list.

I crossed a few other things off my list this morning and I hope to get some more stuff done on my days off.

Not Enough

I am having a day when I feel like there is just not enough time and not enough of me to do every that needs to be done.  UGH!!

Big Scare!

Any mom of an autistic child who has elopement tendencies knows my biggest fear.  My baby boy getting out the front door and something horrible happening.  Today the worst possibility flashed through my mind. I was upstairs cleaning Little Prince's room and one of the little girls left the door unlocked and Little Prince got out!  He ran full speed across the highway in front of our house, was almost hit by a car, popped in through someone's door, darted out again and into the woods.  Luckily as me and all the girls frantically ran barefoot across the highway to find where he had run, someone across the road corralled him, could tell he was autistic and met us with him in their arms.  I was hysterical, as was Princess Magpie.  They told me to calm down, he was okay, and to go home and cuddle my boy.  This scared me guys!

Little Prince didn't amazing at his dental appointment.  It was scary for him but he did great!  I am so proud of him.

The whole trip has been exhausting for him and he fell directly asleep as soon as we got on the road home.

When he woke he proceeded to continue to try to take off his seat belt and his shirt . . . Silly boy.  Mommy had to fix that much to his dismay.

Adventures in the City

We are having an adventure taking Little Prince into the city.  He has an appointment with the dentist early in the morning.

I worked a day shift today.  It was really busy but fun.  The girls said that they want to steal me for their shift.  LOL the people I usually work with would be so upset!

Decision Made

So, here is the thing . . . I spoke to my boss, she told me I was in line to be promoted to supervisor.  She outlined benefits I would soon be entitled to.  I considered that along with the fact that I like my job, I like my co-workers, I really like bosses.  I really didn't want to leave, but I felt like I had too. But I felt horrible going in to work knowing I was leaving a job I like.  So I spoke to Prince Charming and my boss and decided to stay where I am.

When I made the final decision, it was like a weight was lifted off my shoulders.  I was completely relieved.  When I told everyone at work, they hugged me.  Everyone from my bosses to my coworkers hugged me.

I am making big decisions today.  I have three jobs to pick from.  My current job and two new ones.  I am weighing a lot of factors out.

Making Adventure

And when the power went out, we piled all the kids into the van for an adventure into town.  We had a little picnic all in all it was a fun little trip.


I traded shifts today so that another girl could spend Saturday with her in laws.   That meant I had extra time to spend at home.  I decided to spend it with the kids.  We had a movie afternoon and also made piggy banks together.

We had a lovely night out.  The Digby Pines is a truly beautiful resort.

Decided to have a date night with my hubby to celebrate my new job.  We almost never do that, except occasionally on our anniversary.  I think I cleaned up okay.

Aren't we cute?

One of the places made me an offer!  I have to hear from the other one.  I am tentatively scheduled for training in two weeks.  But they said that it would be a week or so before I heard.  I don't know what I will do if I get both.  But I am now going to be working closer to home!  I am so glad about that!

Jul 7, 2017


So, I am on the short list for both jobs.  Now it is just a matter of finding references for work I did ten to fifteen years ago.  Apparently the many reference letters I have are not enough.  It is so hard going back to work after a long absence.

Wish Me Luck!

One interview done and one to go.  It would be nice to have the options so that I could choose
  It would be nice to be able to work closer to home.  I am nervous today and I don't know why.  I know that I would be perfect for ghost job but I also know that thiety other people applied.  So we will have to see how it goes.  After having tried three different dresses I have done what I can. Wish me luck!

And another one!

Today, I put out three resumes to local jobs that would be better than the job I have now.  And by the end of the day, I had three interviews scheduled.  I would feel bad for leaving the job, but it would be better for my family and I would feel better.

Something To Think About

I had a lovely day off enjoying the local beauty.

While I was out, I applied for a job that would a lot more per hour but have less hours and be close by.  Between the travel time and the hours it would be a lot more time with my kids but not much difference in pay!  And it would bw a desk job so I woyld have less pain at the end of the day.  They already called me for an interview.  So I am hopeful.
