New Day

I've been really worried about working full-time this summer. Working has been an adjustment, but working full-time has been a really huge adjustment. I started in November of last year working temporary part-time and quickly moved to full-time, so I've missed spending all the time I've been used to spending with at home with Clyde and the kids. I've worried what will happen this summer, but thankfully that has all worked itself out. I have only worked full-time for one year in the past 20 years and that was 17 years ago. I didn't realize how stressful full-time work can be when you haven't been used to it.

I loved the work and the great opportunity I was given. I've made great friends and I've learned so much and it has been wonderful, but it was time for a change. I've needed some time off and the timing was just right to take a break and my boss was able to make that happen. He's been amazing and I am so grateful for his support and understanding.

I'm looking forward to art projects with the kids, jewelry-making, painting, scrapbooking, sewing and photography. I've missed the creative side of my brain. It needs to be nourished and fed, for me and for the kids. I can't wait.

I also can't wait to be a full-time housewife and mother. There has been so many projects that I've had to just drop because I haven't had the time or energy because I've been exhausted from full-time work. I can't wait to get back to all of that and helping Clyde with our company business. It's a new day and I am so grateful for this opportunity to experience all these blessings.

Maybe I can finally get caught up with LAUNDRY! I actually am looking forward to LAUNDRY!

I just wanted to give a quick update and a great big thank-you to my boss at work for all his understanding and help throughout this adjustment. Life is good!!!
