It is official, we are scheduled to move May 1. First off let me explain why I have not been blogging. I took on a temporary full time position. Now yes I know my job is to be keeper of the home and I still believe that full force. However, I wanted to take up a job to pay off my van before we move. I only owe a little over $1900 on it but that is an extra $300 a month we will have. I have been working 8-5 M-F and that is an extra $400 a week. I do not like it one bit. The job itself is not hard but I have been getting up at 5:30 getting myself and the kids dressed, driving 30 minutes to my mother in laws to drop the kids off and then driving an additional 30 minutes to work. Same thing when I get off, then we have to go to ball practice/games. We do not get home until about 7:30 or 8:00, I cook supper, bathe the kids, put them to bed, do a little cleaning, get their school work ready for the next day and go to bed around 11:00 or 12:00. This is no life, I hate it. My house is a mess the laundry is piled up, I spend the weekend catching up on laundry and cleaning the house. Why would a mother want to work outside the home? For independence, to show the world they do not need a man, for what? This is craziness. I am so blessed to have a husband who thinks that I should stay home and take care of our babies and not pawn them off on someone else. My last day of work will be May 16 and that is when I am moving.
Back to moving. We are scheduled to be in our new house May 1. We are in the process of packing everything now and will move all our stuff May 1 and May 2. I will stay there the weekend and my husband will go ahead and move in. We are moving 2 1/2 hours away from Georgia to Tennessee. My husband started his new job 3 weeks ago and has been getting up at 5:00 and not getting home until 8:00 or 9:00 at night. That is too much for him. He is exhausted and on the road too much. I will move in with my mother in law for two weeks and go to my new house on the weekends. The reason being is for my children to finish up their season of ball and the girls to finish up their year at dance(I have invested too much money for them to quit now). I am also going to work to May 16.
We are very excited to move to our new home it is much bigger, but it is also a little more expensive. The area we are moving too housing cost more, but my husband wanted to move to that area and he thinks we will do just fine and I trust his judgment. With all that is going on I have not got to see him much and can't wait to we start our new life in a new town. I will try to update soon and post pictures of our new house. I hope everyone has a blessed week.
