Thursday, February 5, 2009 from work I go!

Ok... I tried it, the whole working a 40hr. a week job away from home. And while it was very satisfying, and rewarding, my family needs me at home. I have such a greater respect for the super women out there that make it all work for them and their family, I however do not possess that talent. Maybe it was the 2(washing machine, hot water tank)floods I experienced, the illness and death of my husband's beloved grandmother, my youngest child's grades plummeting and the shear exhaustion, but I am glad to be a stay at home mom, homemaker again. But the lesson learned here is being thankful. Thankful that I had the opportunity to experience a career again, and the opportunity that when my family needed me most God blessed me with the ability to be here for them. I am also thankful that the man of my dreams supports me and appreciates me now more than ever. I think it is safe to say he hated every minute of helping me with the house cleaning. Not his forte' though he never complained. So now I am playing catch up on all of the projects that I had left undone. Pillows to make...a little girls room that is still undone...and spring cleaning and decorating. I am hoping to post more and to catch up with you gals. I feel like the new girl at school again, so I hope to hear from you all soon. Paula
