Hiatus Terminated

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted-notice that I'm assuming there are as many people out there interested as I may think there are. Anyways, for those of you who do read and are wondering what's been going on, here it is:

First, I went to Texas to clean out my grandfather's house and help it get ready for sale. I brought the Reagan and she was awesome! My mom and I drove out and started in. We cleaned, moved out furniture, and peeled wallpaper, while Reagan watched movies and played with toys from the 60's (which I know were probably a hazard since they were made of metal or wood). Really, Reagan was amazing. A perfect angel, which is really just a huge shout-out to God for blessing me with a great kid and a great week.

We returned. I recovered briefly from the 15 hour drive, and went to work. That's right. I've rejoined the work force. I honestly can't believe it. After four years of SAHM status, the part-time working mom thing is taking a bit of time to get used to. I am working as an intern for a private law-firm who do personal injury. And no, they do not rent the back of the phone book for ad space.

Which leads me to something that I guess I'll just put out there. I am taking the LSAT's on June 16th. It's always been a dream of mine to go to law school, and I realized that if I didn't try to get in I'll always wonder if I could. So, hence, the internship and the studying.

In the meantime, the girls are bouncing from my MIL to my mom, to staying home with Daddy on his flex day.

Good for you Jess, I am so proud of you! What an exciting time in your life right now!

Going back to work takes some getting used to. It took me a few months to get back into the swing of things. The hardest thing for me was the guilt brought on by other people "Don't you think your place is at home with your kids?" Uh, excuse me but don't you think that's none of your business? Don't you think we have talked about it and decided we need to do what's best for us? Don't you think you are kind of a jerk for trying to make me feel bad?? If anyone says anything to you Jess, tell 'em to come talk to me. I'll tell them to stuff it.
