Well, here we are again at the time of year that I can never believe has arrived. Summer vacation is over and the kids started school this past Monday. This is the first year that they will both be going, although Buggy only goes for 3 hours a day. It has been weird having the time to myself but nice. I’ve gotten quite a bit done and I hope that continues.
L handled the first day of school like a champ. We had gone to meet her teacher last Friday and she even stopped in to see her teacher from last year. We usually try to park on the first day and walk her to the door but there were NO spots this year so we just dropped her off. She was totally fine with it (sniff). Buggy starts school a little later so we had a little time to spend with her before we both took her in. Two kids in her class have older siblings who were in L’s kindergarten class so that’s nice. She did fine when we left but she told B later that she had cried a little bit after we left. And since then she has cried every morning when we drop her off. I hope she adjusts soon because I hate leaving her like that. And she didn’t even make it two days before we got a call that she had bumped her mouth on the playground. Luckily, she was fine but sheesh. And of course now she’s stuffy so I’m expecting her to get a full blown cold at any moment now. Thank God the weekend is almost here!
Meanwhile, I am continuing my job search. B thought he had a good lead for me but that didn’t pan out. I’ve applied for a couple of others but no luck so far. I did make the decision to try (at least for now) to return to the insurance business but only on the consulting side. That was I can still be doing something I have a lot of experience with but on a side that I won’t necessarily have to deal with the types of people I was dealing with before (when you get in between a person and their money they can get NASTY). I am going to give that a couple of months and if nothing turns up, I’ll start applying for anything that looks interesting!
I also recently started contributing on a web site for families who have suffered the loss of a pregnancy, baby or child. The administrator of the site is graciously hosting my blog in return! The site is called SURVIVING RIVER – Pregnancy, Infant and Child Loss Support Community. I will be contributing at least once a month (hopefully more once the school routine is set) and I am also moderating a few of the community forums. I know that too many of my friends are loss mamas so please go check it out and have your families check it out too. We provide support to anyone touched by these types of losses.
I am also going to try to blog more on ALL of my blogs and I continue to help out at Band Back Together as well. I have more than enough to keep me busy but I do find myself looking forward to rejoining the workforce. I’ll keep you updated!
