Finding my way

WOW! It's been a super busy week. I never realized how much I depended on my husband being home and helping out with the kids. Yes, it's been a long two years of unemployment, but wow, he was uber helpful around here.
Homeschooling while a teething baby is around is not easy. Forgive me if I ever thought it was! My Jonathan was SO easy. He would spend hours in baby jail while I schooled the girls. Now I am schooling five kids and Lily wants to be in the middle of it all. To top it all off I was in charge of ALL the meals! I can't remember the last time I was in charge of all the meals!
Can I say, none of my household projects got done this week? Not one. I'm thankful I have my kids on a strict chore routine or my house would have fallen down around my ears!
His training is done now and he will probably be assigned a security guard post next week so we can figure out a schedule then. More than likely it will be a night post so we'll just work around that.
I did get all my schooling done this week, so I'm proud of that! :)
I'm thankful for the job, but I sure do miss having my honey around!

Rejoicing with you all on this new job. The Lord is so good and faithful to us. You will adjust to the new routine. For the time being, bask in the joy of God's blessings and everything else will fall in place.

Julie~ Hello I just found your blog today and just wanted to tell you I love reading it, love hearing about your family and especially about homemaking. I am old enough to be your mom, I have a daughter that just turned 30 but I still love reading about women who love their family and are proud to be a keeper at home.
