Wow! Hello there! Man does it feel weird to be back to blogging!
What a perfect day to be back to the blogging world as I link up with Kera for It's Okay Series!
that I have taken a hiatus, as much as I thought about the blog and what posts I wanted to write. Life has just been crazy and I needed the break!
to hate winter! I hate it! Not ready for it! I hate being cold. I hate everything about the snow.
to wish that the roads and driveways were heated and that snow only stuck to the trees and grass. MAYBE just maybe then I would like snow! It is so pretty. But to many cons over take it's beauty.
and no i will not up root my life and move. Although I would LOVE to. I enjoy being near all of my family (95% of them live in state and within a 3 hour distance) I would never leave all that.
(I'll just complain instead)
that my house isn't decorated yet. we have a tree. random other things, that's about it...
that the Halloween decor is still up outside and NOW there is friggen snow on it (UGH)
that I've found myself becoming very addicted to instagram! (its such an easier way to see into a person daily life and be able to communicate with them) Ive become close to so many bloggy friends thanks to it!
that i haven't thought about Christmas gifts besides my kiddos
that i spent WAY more then I wanted to on black Friday! They were great deals!!! and my kids are ALMOST done! just a feel little fillers!
THAT I'M ABOUT TO MAKE A LIFE CHANGING DECISION!
As most of you know I'm a deck supervisor at a local pool. I help kids get in and out of the water. Give them ribbons when they can complete a task in that level. Help parents enroll their kids, change levels, schedule makeup and oversee the pool! Ive been with this awesome company for 3 years! I love my co-workers, love the families that swim with us, and adore all the little kids.
Ive also shared with you all that it is my dream to open up an inhome daycare. I went to school for it, have the perfect basement set up for one, its always been something that I wanted to do! To be able to stay home full time with my littles and teach littles (two passions combined into one)
The long term plan was to work at the swim school until this August. This summer I was going to train my replacement, so that I would gradually work my out, and they would work there way in. It would be a smooth transition for the kids & parents! I also planned to enroll kids this summer for my daycare that would be opening in Sept!
WELL opportunity came knocking. One of Alan's friends heard that I watched Ruby and is looking for full time care for his two kids. After I crunched numbers, I found out that I would be making $500 MORE then what I make now a month. And then the feelings of guilt and sadness overtook me. This is my dream knocking on my door. But now, I have to tell my "job" the place that I love to be at that it's my time to leave.
My meeting with the family is Friday to go over paperwork and discuss all the details. Next week I tell the swim school. Cross your fingers for me. Dreams are coming true!
Construction will start in my basement in January and the actual daycare will be ready to go in March. (until then we will play on the first floor of my home) I'm excited to see everything come together. I just wish that I could have had more time to say goodbye to the swim school!
The Joys of life!
