There's been a lot happening in JeninCanada land-we've found a new place to move to come July 1st, I started my new job and the kids started at daycare (well, Gabe is just after school for now) and it's hectic and we're sorting out the details right now on travelling to/from places. Hopefully I'll be getting my license the second week of July so that will help, but if not, things will be difficult until I do.
The other day I realized that I haven't had a full time job since my old call centre days when Gabe was barely a year old; then I went back to school to finish my English degree, then again back to school after teacher's college didn't pan out for my CESD certificate. Then we moved here and I worked only part-time for FedEx before this nearly 10 months of parental leave. Sure, it *felt like* I was working full time because of all the time I spent on the bus to/from work, but I was only there 5 hours a day. I've never tried to be a full time working mom before and I can already tell things are going to fall by the wayside, like writing and my Pagan activities. Between getting up early, still being up at night with Kat, getting home late and fighting to get both kids asleep by 9 so I can go to sleep by 10:30 or 11:00, there's not a lot of time in there for anything but keeping the house tidy, laundry and touching base with Ryan. Our already-precious one day off together on Sundays is going to become even more jealously guarded against encroaching activities, though I did go ahead and plan a summer solstice fire and get-together in two weeks.
There are some things I want to write about but I'm just too worn out right now. Once I get my feet under me and things settle down I'll be back on a regular basis. Let me know what you've been up too! Until then, take care of you!
