Midweek Confession

The "I can't believe I'm putting this on the internet" edition

* I quit my job. (fyi- blogger changed 'quit' to 'quite'...I hate autocorrect!) GULP. I can't believe that I actually did it, but I've left teaching in its entirety. I think teaching is a fantastic profession, but I was commuting about 45 minutes each way, leaving the house before my kids were awake and picking them up from daycare just in time for dinner, a walk and sleep. I couldn't keep it up. I missed them so much and I wanted to be with them more than anything. So...


*I have a new job! An opportunity came my way while I was on maternity leave. An opportunity to be an EDITOR. To work with words all day is a dream come true. It has been a major learning curve as I entered an industry that I was quite unfamiliar with and have had to learn on the fly a lot. And I've made a lot of mistakes (WHICH I HATE!) and I've cried a few tears because the perfectionist in me wants to be...well...perfect. But I'm learning and growing and getting better (I think) and I am HOME 90% of the time. Working from home is incredibly difficult but seeing these faces all day = totally worth it!

* My red-headed 3 year old is very annoying. Really, I think it's this age, but he NEVER STOPS TALKING. AND BUGGING. AND PICKING. AND THEN TALKING SOME MORE. And, yes, I adore being at home with my babies, but I just want some quiet. So I would love for him to sit quietly, just every once in a while. And I want him to stop poking at his brother all the time and knocking him over for no particular reason. And I want the whining to stop when he doesn't get his own way. And I want him to tell the truth when I ask him a question, not make up some fantastical answer that shows off his (impressive) (but annoying) imagination. And I really want him to stop arguing with me about EVERYTHING because he's only THREE and (this will be a shock to him) he doesn't know everything!

* While writing this... my one year old is pulling up my shirt and blowing zerberts on my love handles. He's also pinching my fat. And making me consider that lipo/tummy tuck that I have been mulling over. 

* We have a new SUV... that I can't park. I am crooked every time. Yesterday I pulled in and out of the same spot at least 5 times, in a pathetic attempt to park my car between the lines. By the time I gave up, I was taking up two parking spaces, with my bumper encroaching on a third. PATHETIC.

* I planned Will's First Birthday Party... to take place the weekend BEFORE my period. Two reasons: 1) I wouldn't look too bloated in the pics and 2) I would be in a semi-nice mood. Well, wouldn't my period decide to show up one week early... on the exact date of the party. Needless to say, hormonal, puffy mess was I.

  2. Love it, Sarah. You are hilarious.

    I'm back at work full time now, and I'm struggling a bit. Bad decision to start back at the beginning of summer. I miss my babies. Also, your three-year old sounds like my three year-old. If only we lived in the same province, we could send them off to annoy one another while we sipped cold drinks on the patio. haha.

    Good luck in the new position. I'm sure you will amaze them with your incredible talent.

  3. So it's probably the age, right? I sure hope so because this whiny, annoying 3 year old has got.to.go! It is just so hard to leave your babies, isn't it? It is absolutely necessary for me to work, so the opportunity to work from home was too good to pass up! Thanks for the good luck. It is so scary to step out there and do something new- especially when I expect so much out of myself!

  5. My kids are about the same age as yours and I totally get the 3 year old thing. My boy's favorite phrase is, "I don't want to (whatever I told him)..." I was prepared for the arguing when he got a little bit older, but not already!
