I ordered this tote from Thiry-One and it came in the mail the other day...
I love it! There were so many patterns to choose from...I had a hard time deciding
which one I wanted. The colors are really fun and it's the perfect size for packing my lunch.
Why do I need to pack my lunch? Well......
After being home for 8 years, I am heading back to work! I'm subbing at the elementary school. Last week, I did title one tutoring. Tomorrow I will be filling in for the school secretary. Obviously, it's only part time as needed...but, I'm hoping something more permanent will open up in the future. I will have to wait and see!
I have loved being able to stay home all these years. It definitely wasn't the plan. The plan, was for me to stay home with Brady just the first year. We didn't think beyond that and didn't think it would be possible financially. That first precious year came and went...and the thought of me going back to work never crossed our minds. It wasn't something we even talked about. We cut lots of corners and made sacrifices along the way...and we wouldn't have had it any other way. When I think of how blessed I have been to be home full time with my one and only child, I am overcome with emotion. I am one grateful mama!
Since Brady started school 2 1/2 yrs. ago...I have been home alone during the day. It was a big adjustment for me the first few months with him being gone all day. I was lonely, and felt like school had taken my little boy from me. Of course, I got over it and have come to enjoy my alone time. My husband has always enjoyed me being home too. We meet for lunch a couple times a week and he takes days off here and there so we can hangout/ go shopping together. He has always supported me in whatever I have wanted to do. And, it's because of him that I have been able to be home all this time.
So, hi ho hi ho...off to work I go!
I'm excited and ready!
