I may have found another job. A lady I know is starting her own non-profit and has asked me to come aboard. I would love it, I love this type of work, but until she gets the funding and everything in place, she can't afford to pay me. What to do? What to do? My husband is great (in case I've never mentioned that before), he just tells me to do whatever I want. How did I get so lucky? It kills me because I have to be nice to him since he's so good to me. Ebony doesn't take to being so nice all the time. I had to eat crow and call him on his cell this morning because I was not so nice, but then I thought about it: he's working 9 hours a day, 7 days a week, gives you his paycheck, cooks dinner when you just don't feel like it, gently put me to bed and fed the kids and got them to bed last week when I had a migrane, even though he was going on his 2nd week without a day off and was dog tired, finally had yesterday off and took the rugrats to the beach just to give me some time to be alone, even though I can take them to daycare every single day if I want, how could I send him to work with a bad mood because I chose to fight this morning? So I called and ate crow. And what was his response when he answered and I said I was sorry? "That's okay, buddy, we're alright. Be safe today" Jeez, I need to go give thanks to every god/goddess known to man.

I no longer have my job. All a part of my life turning upside down, but it's cool. I loved the job, hated the environment. God forbid if you wanted to go to lunch alone, you would hear about it for days. Everyone hated being there, yet expected you to spend every moment with them. Whatever. I have kids. If I wanted another human attached to me every waking minute of my day I'd just go home. I start a new job Monday and I'm looking forward to it. Except we are down to one car so it will be interesting to see how we do the getting both of us off to work and getting the kids to daycare. The hubby lives too far away to catch the bus and while I could do it, do you have any idea how much of a pain it is to lug a stroller up and down the bus steps while trying to keep an eye on my other two rugrats? Not something I'm keen on doing at 7 in the morning when they will be half sleep and cranky.

So Rove leaked the chicks name. What oh what will Dubya do?

It's been a long time, but my life quietly turned upside down. You know the kind, things are going peachy and all of a sudden out of no where--BAM! Things are slowly being righted, but I have a lot of work to do. Prayers, chants, warm wishes, etc are welcome.

I took my husband to see "War of the Worlds" (definitely his choice, not mine) and it sucked. It opened big, but I think it will fizzle out when word travels that it sucks.

As far as the hair goes, I just had mine trimmed and the front braided and the back left in a 'fro. I think I'm going to just continue getting it trimmed for a month or so then go back to twisting it. It just takes so long. I do it myself and with 3 kids and a husband, it can easily take a weekend to do, but it's so worth it because I don't have to do anything to it for a month. I cheated with my daughters hair, I had it braided. I just didn't have the time. I had many people tell me about all kinds of oils, etc, but it just wasn't practical for me to do that when I had to be up and out the door by 6:30am. Maybe now that I am no longer working an hour away I will look into some of the suggestions, but at the time I needed something that didn't take 45 minutes out of my morning.

Hopefully things are calming down and I won't be such a stranger to my own blog.
Many thank you's to Sandi and Lisa for helping me out. Sometimes listening is enough.
