For some reason I have a song in my head while writing this post, and I don’t want to be alone in that so …… “Somewhere over the rainbow way up high…. is a land that I heard of once in a lullaby.”
There now that I got that out of my system.
If ever there is a perfect time for this to happen. It was now.
The time has come in my life for me to make a few un-wanted (haha) but necessary changes. I have had to get a job. I have been working part time as a checker at a grocery store. I have 3 kids that will need braces and with my husband being in the oilfield industry, which is a feast and famine type of lifestyle. I have had to find a way to bring some income in.
Now my schedule is more flexible and I have so far been able to maintain working, and homeschooling, as well as being a parent and somewhat of a wife. LOL.
I am not planning on this for the long term. I am looking at this as just a season in my life. That is helping me get through this.
I am just now beginning to find balance, and that. is. a. good. thing.
I still feel like I should be home with my family. I worry about falling behind on my never ending to do list. But my family has so far been more than helpful in this situation.
I asked around and was very surprised to find out how many homeschooling mothers actually hold a job, or volunteer outside of their home. If they are all making it work, so can I!!!
I want you to know that I really appreciate blogging. I appreciate being able to journal about my life. I really appreciate you reading it. I really appreciate when I read other’s blogs, that I don’t feel alone. I am hoping some out there can relate to me.
