It’s been a loooong time since I posted, but I wanted to give a few updates and hope to post more regularly moving forward. Six months ago I was laid off from my job, while 8 months pregnant. Real nice, huh? I pulled my 4-year old out of daycare because why spend that
mortgage tuition each month when I would be home full time.
Fast-forward a couple months, and I ended up having our second babe (Luke) 5 weeks early. I started looking for jobs back in September, way before I was even ready to go back to work, but I figured it made sense to start the process early. Now here we are, in DECEMBER, and I’m still without a job. I’ve had several interviews but no luck so far. I’m beginning to feel this stay-at-home-mom thing isn’t as temporary as I first imagined.
The days can definitely be long! My 4-year-old, Jay, goes to preschool 3 days/week (another thing I thought would be temporary until I got a job, and he went back to daycare full time). By day I attempt to clean the house, job hunt, interview, change diapers/get spit up on/feed the baby/watch cartoons.
As I’m nearing in on my unemployment running out, I’m in job search panic mode! I decided I would throw a little energy into my blog to entertain not only myself but hopefully a few others out there with some raw, uncensored thoughts about my day. I also plan to do some home updates as well. We have done a few projects here and there along the way.
