I'm back

Well, I knew I was going to take a short break from blogging. I didn't think we would have been quite this long. I am planning on posting my menus again too.

It has been a crazy 6 months or so. Back in May, my husband was laid off. He had been with the company for 22 years, so it was a total shock. But God is good, and although he has yet to find something, we have seen His hand in it all. The timing, although horrible at the time for us, was actually perfect. Actually, he is now working as consultant for a few weeks, and then hopefully he will be hired permanently.

I was teaching preschool 2 days a week last year, and in September I started working four days. Two days teaching young 3's and two days teaching young 2's. I love it, although it is exhausting! But Princess is going to pre-k for free, so it works well. My house on the other hand looks like a bomb went off....every 3 seconds! I've decided that it's pretty bad when you hope a hurricane hits your house (as long as everyone is safe). At least that would be a great excuse on why it looks the way it does.

So I've been struggling with loads of feelings this last few months. The greatest one, I can't do it. I don't have it in me. I love my husband, I love my kids. But to have everything else going on, and then to deal with the never ceasing demands of a special needs child. It can put one in major overload. But there is never a boring or dull moment around here, and I have to admit I do like that!

Well, I will be posting more later. And hopefully my thoughts will be a bit more put together.
