I am thankful for the fact that I am (reluctantly) a stay at home mom again. I love working, I love meeting people and I love doing a job. But I also love to stay home. We are blessed in the fact that we can afford for me to stay home with the kids, I don’t have to work, the kids don’t have to go into daycare for hours a day. My husband has encouraged me to volunteer or go back to school if I want. So I have pretty much thrown myself into volunteering, I really do love it. As of right now I am now the t-shirt seller at school, am finishing up a big cookie fundraiser at school that will end at our fall fest tomorrow, stepped up to be the president of our family readiness group and started fostering at the humane society. I love it. I have been able to meet a ton of people and it’s nice to feel appreciated and part of something bigger than myself!
