I'm Back and Unemployed



I am back, really this time and for my first post on my return I'm going to make it short.  I am very excited to have enough time to blog again.  I've spent the better part of today re-designing my blog using my own graphics and template edits.  What do you think?

It's great to have all of this time again.  We're having more family nights than we've ever had, the house is so clean and freshly painted.  I'll be putting pictures up of that in one of my future posts.  Our house was a flat white in every room except the kids rooms.  Yuk.

Why am I unemployed?  I quit, I know you are shocked but I quit in December.  Trying to juggle the kids a husband and a more than full time job finally made me snap.  Yes our income is now cut in half but I've never been happier.  A much happier wife and mother, a completely different person so do I miss the money of course but if I had it to do all over again I would.  It was a very difficult thing to do after being there for almost 12 years and I was scared to death about what we would do after the money ran out.

We've cut everything back and we're making it and the family is very happy.  In the beginning of April I will be getting a part time job because I am running out of projects to do here at the house . . . The old man wants me to take a break before I go back to work so I am enjoying my break.

For those of you who followed my blog before you know about our obsession with vacations and our trailer camping season starts next month.  We're already packing and have our first trip of the season booked.  Nine nights at one of our favorite Oregon State Parks during Spring Break.  I'm already buying food for the trip and the kids are dreaming of marshmallows already.  Can you smell the campfire?




Now that looks good doesn't it??  I can already smell the campfire.  That picture was from a trip we took last year.  I'll be back with you all soon.  I've got to get my pictures organized for my next post on the house.

Have a good night!
