I'm sure everyone's noticed that I'm blogging again after several months of silence. What brought this about?
I have more time.
Where did this time come from?
I'm taking 3 months off of work, which is doing daycare, which adds two toddlers to my 4 girls.
I had no choice.
You've seen last October's post on my mail overload. Well, I never caught up. Until now. The mail is now all caught up.
However, there is a TON more paperwork that needs to be done. Taxes, for one, and a multitude of other paperwork pertaining to the girls' medical, therapy, and programs for the disabled, etc......
It all HAS to get done. No choice. And I couldn't get it done with 6 kids underfoot every day. By the time the weekends hit, I'd be trying to catch up on housework, grocery shopping, fuelling the minivan, yard work, pet care, etc.... Add in there lately, holidays and birthdays and you can imagine that this single mama was more than overworked. I was burning out and my brain was fried!
I've been free of my more difficult daycare child for a week and my other one since last Thursday and it's made a HUGE difference. I can't believe how much I've already gotten done and gotten it done without completely exhausting myself.
