JUST as I was getting back into the swing of things......another bump in the road....
First the good news.....I got a job!! I start on Monday & while I'm am super excited (I've been pursuing this company for a LONG time) it is full time & it will be a HUGE adjustment in our lives. My kids are excited & they claim they are ready to take on more responsibilities here at home. Let's hope my husband feels the same!! He's excited that he will no longer be the only one bringing home a paycheck.... but he's never been big on helping around the house. He does his outside man type duties like mowing & trimming......but he doesn't know how to work the dishwasher nor the washing machine. I think I'll suggest he take notes while the boys get their lessons on running the appliances :)
Now the bad news. I think I mentioned my mom woke up a few weeks ago with double vision. Well she had an MRI on Saturday & the neurologist called her yesterday. She thinks it could possibly be an aneurysm. That's right....my mom might need brain surgery. I'm trying to stay calm & not worry until we know for sure....but she's my mom....how can I not worry? She will be having a CTA on Friday morning, but then of course we have to wait for the results. At least 3 business days. Where's McDreamy when you need him??
So of course I feel horribly guilty that I will now be working & can't physically be there for her as much as if I weren't working. And if I didn't *have* to work....I wouldn't. It has become a necessity. Talk about being between a rock & a hard place!! Please send good thoughts & prayers our way.....our family has been through a lot this past year & we could really use some good health!!
