Stay At Home Mom??? Me???

Hi Friends...

I guess that really this post could've been titled "So this is where I lost my job..." but, I'm trying to look on the positive!  Actually, it is very positive.  We had discussed this at length but always come to the conclusion that "the timing wasn't right" and we would say "maybe in a a few months".  Apparently, God decided that he didn't approve of our delays and on November 30 I received the news that as of January 30, I would be unemployed due to budget cuts.  We stewed and thought and cried and prayed and by Christmas had realized what a blessing this truly could be.  We have decided that I will be a full time, stay at home mom.  Hopefully, along with my SAHM position, I can also find the time and energy to blog.  Working full time and then being a mommy/wife has left me with little opportunity to communicate with you all.  I have still been reading a lot of blogs but posting and commenting has obviously decreased.  I am also planning to get my butt back to the gym.  I have lost all of my pre-pregnancy weight plus about 5 or 10 extra pounds (????) but believe me, nothing is the same.  I miss the little flat belly that I had before it expanded to fit a 7 1/2 pound babe!  I will get it back though, I'm determined!

So anyway, I hope that you all (assuming, of course, that anybody even still reads this...) are doing well.  Be on the lookout for more regular posts from me...

Oh, and I'll leave you with a couple of pictures of my Callie Belle! Much Love!


  1. I'm happy for you that you get to stay home with your little girl, even if you got laid off to do so. That is a bummer.
