Hmmm, how should I sum up the week?! For Kangaroo Mama, the week has been rocky, for Honey, it’s been hectic and for Kiggster, she’s been recovering. How is one supposed to feel when they find out that their position at their day job was going to get cut but then some people lobbied for their existence, then it was put on the chopping block again and then saved…all in 2 days?! It feels nice that some people lobbied and believed in my work but man, it sucks to know that there are people that believe my existence is useless and unnecessary! Should one stay at a job like that know that every move will be judged, weighted, and knit-picked down to the last grain of sand?! I have to say, I’m not one of those with the strength to hear discouraging news like that and jump into SuperWoman mode and work my bum off to prove them wrong. At the moment, I am in my grieving stage…actually maybe anger stage. I am totally demotivated, wondering why I spend precious hours away from my family to be at a place that thinks I’m worthless.
Sorry to start all your weekend with such a discouraging posting but I just had to share a little about my week. I am not sure what to do, I don’t really want to look for something else because all I really want to do is stay home with Kiggster but we don’t make enough for me to do that and I am the holder of the insurance so if I lose this job, I lose our medical insurance. I’m more worried for Kiggster on that part than Honey and I since we’d gone without medical insurance for 2 years before (not that I’m recommending it to anyone). I need a job that allows me to stay home but also makes me money while I’m sleeping…joking (kinda). I’ve done multi-level marketing before, done sales, but they really didn’t work out for me. Any ideas for me?! I guess that’s why I’m hoping to spruce up my blog, get some affiliate links on here so that hopefully one day, it can at least make a little money to help with a small portion of the bills. I thought about making and selling headbands and accessories but they take a lot of time and these days, I don’t have a lot of time on my hands. I’m busy enough trying to keep up with birthday gifts that if I was to add making enough accessories to sell…I’d never sleep! How do you SuperMoms out there do it?! Have multiple kids, homeschool, cook every meal, run a super successful blog/business/book, spend time with kids and hubby, time for God, time for other family and friends…and gasp, time for yourself?!
Alright, ’nuff about me! Let’s talk about Kiggster, she’s totally recovered from her fever. She was back to her playful self again. She wasn’t in much of an eating mood those two days but I think that might be changing. She has been growing so much, I don’t even just mean in height, although that’s also changing. But she’s been a lot more responsive this past week to sign language! Last Sunday, when we were at the park with all the dogs, she was signing “dog.” Then lately, she’s been doing the “milk” sign (she didn’t do that before, just whined or giggled when I did it). But now she does the sign when she wants milk! Then last night, she was doing the sign for “more” and “banana!” Not surprised she signed banana first of all the foods because that happens to be her favorite fruit…maybe even food! She’s been even learning to put away her toys and books when requested. No she won’t completely clean her room or mess but if you ask her to put something back, she’ll take it and put it back where you requested. Now if she made a huge mess in the room, her attention span will only last to put about 2 or maybe 3 toys away before she’s onto something else. That’s huge progress!
