What's up lately


It's been awhile and it'll likely be a few more weeks before I start to write here again on any sort of regular basis.

My job.

Let's just say I haven't exactly found the work/life balance I was hoping for with a part time work from home job. I made a mistake in accepting one project that quickly made me hate my life and everyone in it. I won't get into detail except to say I need to learn to say 'no' when it won't work with my life. That project should be ending SOOOOOOOOOON and I'm hopefully things will balance out shortly after.

We're going on vacation in 10 days! Palm Desert and Venice Beach here we come! Sunshine makes me happy.

My kids.

Jack got into the school I'd had my eye one for him since he was 1. What can I say, I really wasn't cut out to be a stay at home mom. School and schedules and regularity excite me. He can either go for 2 days a week or 3 days. Pros and cons to both. If we pick 2 days, then we can still benefit from potential 4 day weekend getaways. Just writing that out makes me lean so much more in this direction. One more year of somewhat freedom. If we do 3 days, we'll be limited to the normal 2 day weekends. The benefit with 3 days is that it's 3 days. He would be at school 3 days instead of at home 3 days. With me.

I'm beyond stressed and overwhelmed. Everything is fast. Anxiety crept in a never left three months ago. Irritable doesn't even begin to describe it. Again, need to learn to say no when it doesn't make sense. This is the first weekend where I will not do one ounce of work until Monday. I'm going to take things slow. It's sunny.

I need to start writing here again more. My skills feel lacking, yo. And it's just not that interesting. Maybe I'll post some pictures soon!
