I Must Confess....

I must confess that I am really starting to freak out!
In less then a two weeks both of my kids will be going to school full time! At first I was really excited about this and now it's hit me.
For the first time in 7 years I will be home without my kids and without a job to go to everyday! And this is FREAKING ME OUT!

In the midst of my FREAK outs I've applied for almost 20 jobs and have received quite a few calls about my Resume. But then it comes down to this....
  • what do I do before and after school with the kids
  • what do I do when they get out of school at 1:00 every Friday
  • what do I do with my kids on all those silly holidays and teacher's planning days
  • what do I do Spring Break and Summer Break and now our school district is going back to Mid-Winter Break this year
There is so much to consider! Maybe my job this year is to just take the year off and see how it goes. Focus on the things that I really want to do. Maybe it's going back to school, maybe it's working more on my own party planning business.

I do know that I hope to continue working in each of there classes once a week. That I will be taxi mom taking them to and from school and to there after school events and that God knows my plan! (and hopefully he will reveal it soon!!!!)

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you" declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future"

I have been keeping this verse close to my heart these days! As any Mom I just want whats best for our family!

Thanks for your honesty. Congrats on the kids being in school, but it's a new phase of life for you too. Love the verse at the bottom, great reminder!

I will be thinking of you during your transition time! I can only imagine how crazy it must feel. I hope you get to enjoy it for a bit and I think it is a great plan to take a little time. It seems like you could wait and see how much time alone at home you really have!!!
