The Busy Life

Life has been so busy as of late. I started a job that required me to work 2 twelve hour day shifts and then 2 twelve hour night shifts back to back and then four days off. I just barely made it through the two day shifts and realized it was a bit too much for me. I quit and they didn't make me finish off my week with the night shifts, whew! That was a Tuesday and by Friday I had a new job, one that is perfect for me! God's timing is amazing. I now work in a daycare with the infants. I have evenings and weekends free and I get to play with the cutest babies. Sounds great to me. I've always wanted to work with children so this is a great opportunity. I have to do some online training for certification so in November, the whole family will be in some form of school! Life is about to get busier.

We've also had a lot of sickness in the house lately. I think between all three boys they've already missed 7 days of school and they haven't finished the first month yet. Now it's my turn, I'm fighting a head cold. It was only a matter of time, all the babies at the daycare are sick and seem to always direct their coughing and sneezing right at my face! My baby turned 7 on the 23rd. It feels like forever ago he was a baby and yet it has gone so fast. We had to postpone his birthday party until next week because of me being sick and him throwing up this morning. Like I said, lots of sickness!

We are having a new septic system installed. We've been waiting for months but they have finally started the work so hopefully in a few days we'll have it done. I won't miss the open hole full of sewer water in our back yard, yes it's true. We haven't had time to do anymore renovations except to install a dishwasher. That was the best renovation yet!

That is all that has been happening this month and keeping me away from this blog. I hope this week is finding you all happy and much healthier than us! I'm off to take some nighttime cold pills and go to bed, night all!

More Pictures…For Now


It has been busy around here, getting ready for school and interviewing for jobs.  A new post is in the works but until then, here are a few pictures…for now.  I’m loving the flowers a friend started for me and I planted here.  I’ve been harvesting green beans out of the garden and now the tomatoes and potatoes are getting ready to be harvested next!  There are so many bright green moths (or butterflies?  I’m not sure) and I managed to catch a couple but this one was the most compliant for photographing!
