How did that happen?

Today marks two months of unemployment and this week is almost one month in this apartment, and I have to say, things are going good. I never in a million years thought I would enjoy being home all day, but I do. Trust me I am still adjusting, but honestly my patience with my children has gotten a lot better.

I don't know what it is or why it happened but it did. I notice on the one day both kids are at daycare and they come home, I have a hard time with patience with them but every other day, it's not like that. Is it because we are always in a rush and I only see them for two short hours, I don't know, but there is a difference.

Hanging out with Mary, is a blast. Of course, there are days we are staring at each other with nothing to do and those days are long, but they don't happen all the time. I really know and understand her personality and in one short word, its Diva, but a comedic one at that. She is always making me laugh or doing something crazy.

I'm looking forward in a month to Henry joining us in our crazy days. I want to get to know him more too. I'm not saying, I don't know my children but I feel like I know them in a different way, now that I am home. I take my time, I'm not in a rush, I sit down and let the sink fill up and laundry pile up, I don't feel that it HAS to be done, like I did when I was working and I enjoy my time with them.

You would think I would have taken more time when I was working, but I had less time to do that and I always felt that everything had to be done. I didn't want to spend my weekends in a laundry room or cleaning, I wanted them with my family. Now, that,  I'm not in a rush, Monday is like Saturday (well except without Charlie) and things can get done then.

Yes, I am still looking for a job and I have had some leads but nothing yet. The job is going to have to be the perfect situation and something I am going to love doing because right now it's not going to be easy for me to leave, but I have to realize that most likely it's going to happen.

I hope this post doesn't come across in a bad way, it's just the way my life has changed. I believe that things happen for a reason and I think someone was telling me, to slow down, and appreciate what you have been given.

I know what you mean about staying home. Being a teacher I feel like I'm a part-time stay at home mom with the summers off with the kids. It is funny too because my house is messier when I'm off. I totally relate to just enjoying the kids and not having to get the chore list done before returning to work Monday morning. Enjoy the time off and good luck on the job hunt.
