I have taken a seriously long hiatus, but now I am ready to take this blog on in a more consistent fashion. I have thought for weeks how I would like to update this blog and have procrastinated long enough. Since I can't sleep tonight and I laid awake writing this post in my head, now seems like as good a time as any.
First off let me announce my new job. I was offered a position taking care of 2 adorable little girls for a neighbor. It is a Mon-Fri job which requires me to leave my current job at the doctor's office. It is just up the street so I will save on gas and its way more hours, which means more money. I look forward to this new adventure but it is very bittersweet. I gave my notice at the Doctor's office and had a very hard time not crying. Everyone was very understanding. I just feel like I am being selfish. I started that job when I was sophomore in college and very new to the field. They have been there for me through breakups, dating, graduating, getting engaged and then married. These ladies have become my family, my friends. They consider themselves like my mothers, but I see them as my sisters. I just wish there was someway I could stay.
On the other hand, the new job is perfect. I get to do all the fun activities and crafts with the girls that have just been ideas until now. I won't post pictures of the girls because they are not mine and although I am sure their mother would not mind if I asked, for now I will only post pictures of projects. For the sake of this blog we will call the girls(after their favorite characters) Mermaid (age almost 4) and Explorer (age 21 months). They are adorable and I love spending time with them.
I have also started my own business as a independent consultant for the pampered chef. I love cooking so it seemed like a good idea.
I am very excited about where life is taking me right now. I know it will be hard at first, but I think I have made the right decisions. I just wish there was a way to make everyone happy.
Thanks for read the ramblings of an insomniac.
