So, I've got two announcements, but you are only getting one today. Ha!

I've been a little absent from my daily blog posts lately and I apologize. There has been a lot going on at our house.

So...for the first announcement.

I'm going back to work.

Ugh. I know.

I'm taking a temp job with a local company at least for a couple of months, it may turn into more, maybe less, we'll see. Extra money is needed so this mama is going back to work. But, trust me, it's not my first choice!

We've also spent the last two days looking for daycare, and it has been found! Thank the lord. A very trusted in-home daycare was brought to our attention and she just happened to get an opening this week. Little man and I fell in love as soon as we walked in the door. He'll be doing 1/2 days this Thursday and Friday and then start full-time next week.

Please keep your fingers, toes, and legs crossed that this mama will do okay...

Now on to some weekend pics and food. We tailgated, watched lots and lots of football and ate a ton as well.

Little man all bundled up outside. It was cold and rainy on Saturday, but he was a trooper.

The best gumbo I've ever eaten. I'm patiently waiting for the recipe...

Look who got to walk around on the field after! Please ignore his mismatched outfit, it was getting close to bedtime and this little bugger was pooped.

And finally last night's dinner of a yummy spicy chicken and broccoli stir fry with brown rice. It definitely hit the spot. I took so help with a spice mix, but everything was chopped, diced and sauteed by me!

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday, almost mid-week!

Would you like to comment?

  1. Don't tease us! Good luck going back to work, I know everything will work out.

  2. Oooooh I want to hear the other announcement - you tease!!!

    I was watching a gumbo challenge on the Food Network last night, and I told my husband that I really want to make gumbo - he looked at me like I was from mars. Neither of us have ever had gumbo, and I am pretty sure he doesn't really know what it is. What a coincidence that I see it again today on your blog :-) Now I HAVE to make it!

  3. good luck with going back to work. I'm sure your son will love his daycare, and you will enjoy your job. it will all work out!

  4. Good luck with going back to work and with your little guy starting daycare. I found it tough at first going back after each of my mat leaves but you get used to it and everybody gets into a good routine. Now I'm enjoying work again and my kids are loving daycare. I hope the same for you.

  5. Hooray for a new chapter! I know its not exactly what you want, but I dont doubt that youll turn it into something great!

  6. Fingers crossed! and good luck in your new job :)

  7. I had to go back to work when Hannah was six weeks old, so at least you got to stay home for longer than that!

    I lucked out though - Hannah had the same babysitter from six weeks until she started first grade!

    Fingers crossed the job goes well!
