OMG, I don’t know where all my time goes. I really don’t. The last few days have been a blurrrr. And I don’t have much to show for them. Not even groceries. And we need groceries so very badly. (Who wants to go grocery shopping for me? No one? Are you sure?)
And right this minute, I feel too tired to write anything.
Buttt…there’s news to discuss.
The kidlet jumped out of his crib last week at naptime. He, apparently, didn’t want to take a nap, and so took matters into his own hands. Unfortunately for him, he wasn’t really coordinated enough to make a graceful escape, and instead he fell out. He screamed very loudly to alert us to his predicament, causing both his dad and I to race into his room and swoop him off the floor. Once he was safely ensconced in my arms (approximately 10 seconds after falling) he was fine. And completely done with napping. He’s been sleeping better at night, and fighting naps more. I guess I get one or the other.
I’m starting back to paid work! Well, not really starting back, as I’ve been doing paid work for a few hours a week since August, but starting next week I’ll be working a full 20 hours a week. WOOT. I’m really looking forward to it. I thought long and hard when I left my previous job, shortly after the kidlet was born. I worried A LOT about financial dependence, and financial solvency, and my emotional well being…it was NOT an automatic decision for me to stay home with him. And once I was home with him I stressed about how not-suited to be home with him I am. And then a client that I worked with called me up with an offer that was perfect for me; a couple hours of work a week. And those couple of hours have grown into this, and I might even wind up working for another previous client for more hours. And I get to be my own boss, and set my own hours (mostly). BIG WIN.
I’m going to leave you with some pics of my kid from last week. I had intended to put a “week in pictures” post up, but it ain’t happening, so this one can do double duty.
Okay, tomorrow I’ll be back with something of substance.
