My work schedule has recently changed & I am totally thinking for the better. I will be working Monday through Thursday 10 pm til 6:45 am. Sounds rough, I know, but I will now have my Saturdays off with the ole family. We can now live like the Griswold's (spelling...you ALL know ) & load up the old station wagon. or HHR in our case & head out of town. For four years now Derek has been a single father when it comes to Saturdays. Taking the boys to birthday parties & whatnot & now I am here.Yeah!!!I feel bad kinda...infringing upon Derek's routine & all now. Hopefully, we will find the right chemistry to make it all coincide. I am so proud of what Derek has done on the weekends. He cleans. He mows the lawn. He cleans out the garage. He is a super dad first & foremost. His DJ business has really begun to take off & allowing me to be off on Saturdays will allow him even more freedom to book certain engagements. Cha-Ching$$$Big Daddy..." Show me the Money!" I have expressed how important it is to be at home in the evenings with the boys. I have enjoyed so very much in cooking for them, bathing them, reading to them, praying with them & kissing their sweet little faces good night. I just need to come up with a few more good dinner recipes for the guys. I am so fortunate to have this schedule. To contribute to the family & be a stay-at-home mommy. Now, I have only done two nights of this thus far & will not have childcare on Wednesdays & Fridays, so maybe I should wait til my sleep deprivation kicks in full swing to let you know how I really feel...LOL! Whatever the case, I am thankful for the Lord to allow this change. God is good! Can I get an " Amen " ? I am including a few pictures from night two with the boys. I mean, when could I cook a great meal, give Gator a bath because Mac n' Cheese was poured onto him, then give the boys a bath & call it a night? Ah, motherhood. I am finding myself with more energy ,as well, doing an eight hour shift rather than a twelve. Again, we shall see. I may delete this post if I ever get on the verge of calling it quits. NEH! Who am I kidding? I am basically off from Friday mornings through the weekend til Monday evening. Can we say mini-vacation or Pickwick around the corner? I'll say it again...God is Good!
I am a non"turn or burn" Jesus lovin wife to a wonderful & patient man who I was engaged to only after two weeks (Hey, we met at a singles bible-study...I was saved,he was saved, what else is there-Ha!)and that was nine years ago.I am a mommy to my 4 y/o little guy who already has the heart of a missionary & 2 y/o little guy who, well, let's just say needs missioning to! My religion is tested everyday & that rocks! I refuse to be stagnant.I refuse to let satan get the best of me when reading fellow blogs & attempts to keep up with Jones'. So, sit back & enjoy the show. I can promise it will be bumpy, but who wants to read about perfection?I will often quote from my favorite movies, so be ready! And, if you can't say anything nice about someone, come sit next to me-wink!
