Pieces of Heaven

Wednesday, April 21, 2010


It's been three years since the last time my husband and I have moved, and now we're ready to go again- this time, with Joseph- (and the cat.)

When my husband is away for long hours at work, I've been spending time making lists and beginning to make preparations for the grand trek ahead of us. From Texas to Vermont is a long way! The baby and I; and perhaps the cat, will be flying to Vermont, while my Dad and my husband drive a moving truck with our few possessions.

Soon after my arrival with baby, I will begin my new job. I am excited about this, but at the same time I think I will have a very difficult time not being a stay at home mom. I thought I was going to have a hard time with it this year, but despite difficulties, I've ended up falling in love with it. I like running the household. I feel like it's where I'm supposed to be.

However, my employer is amazing and is allowing me to bring Joseph to work with me, which is a great thing. I don't think I could reconcile putting him in daycare, especially since he's a baby.

We're still waiting to hear back from places where my husband has applied- and there is another opportunity on the horizon for him. I'm hoping one will pull through.

I will have to write more later. This is one of those "brain dump" entries where I just splatter everything onto a page.


  1. I found your blog!!! :-) Yay!!! It sounds like you are doing really well - congratulations on finding such a wonderful job! I LOVE your entry about the Knight (your husband bringing flowers at the perfect moment!). I know that everything will work out with not being a stay at home mom - I will probably be facing the same thing myself. No daycare for us either, but still not the "traditional" way of doing things. I think that it's good to be able to adapt when needed (sometimes life makes you do that), and in the long run your family and children will respect you more because they will see how strong you have been for them being able to "step out of the norm" in order to make things happen for all of you! It will be an adventure, but a blessed one in which you are NOT alone! :-)

  2. Hi Amanda!
    I'm glad you found my blog. Alfredo is amazing- what can I say? Sometimes, he just knows what I need.
    Thanks for your comments about working and not doing daycare- it's so great to hear that someone else understands! It's not ideally what I would like, but someday, (God willing of course)I will be able to stay home and take care of the family the way I want- but until then, Fiat! :) Talk to you soon.
