The circle of life

 
 
 
I am 7 days out from my last day of work. 
 
THERE I SAID IT! IT'S REAL! CANDACE GET YOUR HEAD IN THE GAME!
 
 
Yesssss.......   I'll be home. With the babies. Not making a dime.  My 2 weeks is ticking by. And once again, for a period of time undetermined I'll be a stay at home mom. 
 
Part of me is scared. Very scared. Of all the things that need to be done and put back in order. I've been back in the work force for close to 2 years and it is weird leaving it once again.  I feel like I'm leaving a piece of me behind. My independence to be accurate.
 
 And I also fear the untamed beast that poor time management has allowed our 2 year old to become. Late nights waiting up for mom and pretty much doing as she pleases.
 
I'm pretty sure baby boot camp is going to suck major balls! One of us has to come out the victor right? I mean, realistically, THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE, and shit......  Right?  Anyone want to come do the honors of potty training???!!!  Yessss?  You can has her?

For those of you that don't know, D.i.c. graduated in December and landed one of his top choice jobs at the beginning of February (YAY! GO BABY!!!)  and things have been a whirlwind ever since. My job has done it's best to work me around his schedule which I am so very thankful for but things have been difficult. Time management has been tricky to say the least.
 
There have been lots of important appointments missed for Bear. And Zo is so behind at her doctors office she is still waiting on her 15 month vaccinations at 21 months. People aren't getting where they need to be when they need to be there.
 
 I feel like an Octopus minus 6 arms.  Not to mention the whole finding a sitter thing and realizing that my work profit after a shift and paying the person responsible for my pups will be a measly $10.00.....
 
 
Not $10.00 an hour. $10.00 for an entire shift. 
 
Hmmmm.  Dilema. So we, the D.i.c. and I, decided that realistically the smart decision is for me to stay home and be frugal until I can find a position at the ass crack of dawn to work around D.i.c.'s schedule and be home with the babies at night.
 
So if you need me, I'll be here, in my apron baking goodness and chasing after children with a wooden spoon. 
 
Life goes on my friends.
