Update

Wow. I really miss you guys!! Not getting to blog regularly is a real bummer and I feel like I'm missing out on so much of what's going on in your lives!!! Please keep checking back with me!..there won't be as many posts, but I will try to do my best. I'm not ready to quit just yet!

The new job is going much better. This week I've been mostly on my own and have only needed to chase down the lady that is training me (she's busy learning another position as well!) only occasionally. I'm remembering more than I'm forgetting and the knot that has been living in the pit of my stomach for the last week and a half, is actually loosening up on occasion.

Personally, I still find myself in a bit of a struggle to be at home, but with each passing day things seem to be getting a smidge better (within myself).

DH and the kids have really stepped up to the plate to fill in the gaps that my going back to work has opened. It's been a great lesson for me in humbleness as I go around saying "Thank You" much more than usual.

After eighteen years as a SAHM I'd gotten quite used to taking care of everyone and everything so to let go and let someone else clean the kitchen or wash a load of towels is quite an adjustment.

I've been blessed so much on my job to meet so many wonderful people!! I have laughed and smiled, shared and listened to stories....it's been quite a refreshing experience in many ways.

Another struggle is finding balance....or at the very least, a new kind of balance. The biggest challenge: my God time..DH leaves for work right before me and at night the kids get home anywhere between 8 and 10 p.m. Trying to divide my time has been a tough process of learning and one that I'm still getting lessons on. I could try getting up a little earlier but staying up to check in with the kids at night makes that difficult for me...at least right now...

So there you have it...another rushed post, but hopefully you're caught up and know what's going on in my corner of the world.

What's going on with all of you??
