You’re heard of this saying: out of sight, out of mind — right? That quote says it all about my blogging life as well as my home life. As you may know, I started working full time three months ago. The first month was extremely hectic for me. I was not used to being in an office for eight hours a day AND not being home when the kids arrived from school. I was exhausted. I got sick for three weeks with bronchitis and a nasty cough that would linger all day long. The laundry accumulated. The house was a wreck. The kids told their father I was mean (I couldn’t help it — I was so tired).
Basically I was one hot mess!
The second month was ok. I got the hang of waking up at 6AM to get ready and send my youngest to the babysitter’s and off to work I went. The ride isn’t too bad either — only a 20 minute drive. People at the job are pretty nice. Things were going well until my mom went into the hospital for issues with her kidneys, liver and diabetes.
The day she went into the hospital, I got off of work early and the following week, I had to call out because of an accident she had where she fell in the hospital room and hit her head really bad. I was a complete wreck!
I really thought I was going to lose my mother. I couldn’t focus at work. I was upset that after 3 months of working, I still needed another month to complete probation. Which meant I couldn’t take another day off without my supervisor reminding that I was still on probation. :/
Thank God she is now home recovering. She was in the hospital for a month and a half. I’m hoping and praying she gets well. Only time will tell.
Now that she’s getting better, it doesn’t feel too bad waiting for that last month to get out of probation. I feel like I’m in prison! lol
Mornings could be better. My six year is a diva in the making so she takes forever to get ready. At times she wants to be independent and get ready all by herself and other times she wants me to dress her like a baby. I don’t get her. But then again, she’s a girl and girls can get pretty unpredictable.
So that is why I’ve been neglecting my baby, my blog. Most of the time it’s out of sight and that leads to out of my mind.
