I know, I know, I haven’t blogged in a few days. And I should have plenty of time to blog now, right? (Of course.) I’ll try to be better.
OK, so that’s a rhetorical question. I don’t really need someone to tell me to update my resume (er, update?), make dr/dentist/eye doctor appointments before our insurance coverage changes, etc.
It’s strange not having a job. It’s really strange being home by myself (we decided to send Little Sister to preschool this week, since she’s paid through March 1 anyway) – I usually have the house to myself about twice a year. Soon enough LS will be done with preschool for the time being, and we’ll have our “LS and mom” days every day. I think it’s going to be quite an adjustment – for me, not her. Tim and I have never been great about having a routine on days we’re home, but I really think that having some sort of schedule – however loose – is going to be key to having me be a stay-at-home mom, however temporarily. Book Boy and I have been struggling over his homework the past couple of days, though I think that may ease up a bit after today. (His asthma was acting up last week, so he stayed home one day and came home early two days, which translates into a LOT of homework. He’s all caught up now.)
On the plus side, I’m already doing a little contract work (editing!) for a car seat related project. It’s not a big project – maybe 20 hours max – but it’s a step in the right direction. Imagine if I could make a living writing/editing about car seats!
