I’ve read a lot of blogs that talk about quitting your day job to start your dream job. I laugh inside, because my current day job is being a mom. So, quitting this job is not really an option. It is more of a change in how my day to day operates. I usually wake up before the boys and check/reply to e-mails, package up any orders ready to be shipped and try to organize my day.
I love (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE) that I get to create and be creative. My days are usually filled with toddlerville and my nights filled with sewing, but lately it has been getting to be too much. This summer, I enrolled the boys in a two day program where they go all day. On the first day, I drove away to two little boys holding hands in the middle of the playground. Another day was filled with a sobbing goodbye, which was followed by my tearful drive home. But, I think we are all adjusting (and happier).
I often say prayers not that certain things will happen, but that I will be guided in the right direction. And pretty soon, the direction becomes obvious.
This past year has been like riding on a teeter totter. I think for now, my teeter totter is in balance. I still get long days at home, but also get days where I can get a lot of work done.
