So I started this blog a couple of months back with the intention of writing about being a Work at Home Mom. However, life is full of twists and turns and due to many circumstances out of my own control, I am no longer working. I won’t bore you with the details, but this has been quite a change for me and I’m still getting used to it. I guess that means I’ll be talking less about working, and more about Mom-ing! (Which trust me, is STILL work!)
I’ve been struggling with this for weeks, “Do I scrap my blog…it’s brand new anyway!” “What am I going to do when it comes time that I NEED to go back to work?” “What if I don’t want to go back to work??” “Can I find something to do on my own? Be my own Boss?” For now, I’ve decided I will keep going…I will write about what we do together as a family, funny stories about my kids, cool projects we’re working on, and how I’m trying to figure it all out again. I’m sure this will turn out to be one of MANY surprises that life will have for me…and really I should be NO stranger to that! I have plenty to keep me busy, what with going back to school full time, exploring things like photography and my creative side, growing my THIRD child, raising the other two that are still under school age, taking on the full responsibility of the household and EVERYTHING that goes with owning a home…(Because my hubby no longer has time to do it. He’s working almost 60 hours a week to help compensate for my change in income). So here’s my story, my journey, of how I will use this time in my life to recreate myself. My goals are to cherish this time I will get to have with my kids, simplify my life, and to find a “job” that will truly inspire my creativity and make me happy!
