So a lot has changed in my life since I last wrote on here. Like the Title says...Where to Begin?? Well I guess first things first...I quit my job. I know, I know. A lot of people will sit there shaking there heads, but I honestly was a grown up about this decision. First off I have worked steadily since I was 15 years old...so this isn't like it's just "oh, kim is working anymore". Jon and I looked at our finances....and after a good long look we came to the understanding that this just isn't going to work anymore. Right now we have two children in day care and a 45 min. commute for both of us everyday. After the sitter is paid and gas tanks are filled we are left with...well pretty much nothing from my paycheck. So I asked Jon...do I really want to keep working to make nothing? It was getting close to the point where I was about to start PAYING to work. So now I am at home enjoying my lovely, CrAzY children. (this is my first week at home) I have begun a new exercise/diet program and hopefully can shed these extra pounds that I have added on whilst working and the children and I have found PLENTY to keep us busy! Thank you Gigi for finally opening the pool! I am looking at schools to take online courses and I hope to watch a few children when need be to bring in extra cash. I know this isn't the option everyone would of picked...but I am too grown to keep doing things because I don't want to dissapoint someone. I am going to try my best to do what I believe is right for my family and I want to also try to make myself Happy! Life is too short to sweat the small stuff!
Ok, so thing #2! Hahaha....we are going to try Cloth Diapering! I really believe this will save us $$$ and I also just think it's not as hard as it used to be. Right now I deal with stains in lovely child #1's undies all the time...so why not just have a WHOLE load of laundry focused on #2 instead of half one?
Thing #3..you know that amazing man I blogged about last time. Well we got good news.....then the doo-doo hit the fan. We are all worried and a little sick to find out that we didn't beat the buzzer on this one. My wonderful amazing Grandpa is now dealing with Cancer. Aunt Margie (bless her lovely lovely soul) has been helping my grandparents every step of the way through this life changing process. She is such a wonderful person who doesn't always get the recognition she deserves! LOVE YOU AUNT MARGIE!! I don't truly think the reality of this news has totally hit home for me, having one grandparent who has passed on from cancer I think I am just numb right now. My Grandma Marcy was a fiery, inspiring, and much loved great cook who could cuss like a sailor!! And I miss her everyday!! I just know she would love how well our sports teams have been doing lately and she would be there if she could be. So Grandpa...I know you can do this. You never quit and you are one of the hardest working men I have ever known! So I know when it's time you wll GET TO WORK and kick this cancer's A**!!!
Anyway...I think that's enough exclamation points and a pretty good overview of my life these days...
