Back Again. No I didn't give up the quest but its been an interesting last few months. My sitter quit at the last minute, no notice. I could not at 4pm on the Friday before school started Monday, get a sitter or day care. My 3 year old boys have 1/2 day title I pre school, need to be dropped off/picked up, and my 8 yo son goes to Christian School across town, also drop off & pick up. So I quit my "night job". I love being a nurse and working the floor but my needs are for my family right now. I figured for what I was paying the nanny a month, that would pay my portion of our bills and I could stay at home, (we have the luxury of a subsidy from the state for adopting our boys from DFS, that is what has paid for childcare & schooling) which had been on my mind alot any how.
In addition to that, my grandparents moved here from AZ, they paid me to take care of them in their duplex so that I could at least afford health insurance at $600 month (I am so high risk no one will touch me) my grandmother got worse and I lost both my grandmas in the last 2 weeks,
needless to say, as much as I love to cook and bake, it has been on the "back burner". The funeral is Monday and I will be hosting the family at my home this weekend, my DH is currently taking my grandpa out to breakfast so I can get the house cleaned. (my 3 boys tearing it up faster than I can clean it
All this aside, I hope to get back "in the game" in a few weeks, I am actually busier as a SAHM than I ever was working full time night shift.
I love to cook (I joined a freezer cooking coop) and bake, it is what relaxes me, even with the interruptions. Thanx for keeping me in mind Frosting Friends. Will fire the oven back up soon.
