Time for an update

First and foremost, I really want to extend my deepest gratitude for all your support and comforting words over the past little while. It's a difficult process for me to go through at the end of each summer, as I'm sure you can imagine. I think that maybe the following year, it will be a little easier because I'm accustomed to letting the boys go...but no, it doesn't get is it supposed to? A little bit of positive though, the boys do want to stay, but they're just not quite legally able to decide that. Their father had said things that made me ILL to make them feel guilty about even wanting to stay. I don't even want to think about it anymore. Anyways, thank you to all my internet friends, I am truly blessed for you! year long hiatus AKA mat leave will be up in just over a month! How depressing is that. I am *tortured* at the thought of leaving my baby at daycare, I've never had to do this. I work that means I would be gone from him all night, and he would be gone from me all day!! I just cannot do it. I've decided I am going to keep a casual position at the nursing home, and work part time at Safeway or some equally mundane that I can work part time evenings. This way I can still be at home for my little guy, I can still partake in my daughters daily school dropping off and picking up etc. It's not ideal, as I don't like working evenings, but it will be alright. Hopefully, I'll be back in school (again!!) and on to a path to a new career...(again!!) ;)

I can't leave you all without some creativity. I really *needed* to use this SEI poppy paper, it's just not pretty hidden away on my shelf! The little tab is where I meant to write the date, but I took forever adjusting the corners and I forgot, and now I see the corners are still off, ARGH!
So, I leave you with this, and you saw it here first! ;)

PS: I've ordered my ribbon for my monthly giveaway, hopefully it will be here sometime next week, I'm itching to do another round of blog candy! :D

I wish your ex hadn't done that to the boys. It was very irresponsible of him.
I hope you can find a job that best suits your needs as a mother.
I love your LO!
