Working Woman

NEVER say NEVER!!!!! After 3 years of unemployment, well I take that back. Being a SAHM is HARD work, but 3 years ago I said "never again will I go to work!!!" I am currently 'eating' my words as I have entered into the working field again. I am currently working PT (30 hrs a week) at a Physical Therapy Clinic working as a Physical Therapy Tech. I work along side the Physical Therapist and assist them with their pateints at Rehab Authority in the Eagle clinic. I really LOVE what I do. It's just that I am on my feet ALL day long (10hrs) and my feet are burning by the time I head home for the evening. It's been a rough few months for us, but after sometime of Dan trying to pick his business up and finding another job we decided we needed more steady income coming in. So, it was a little easier for me to apply so I got the job and away I went.
The boys stay home with Dan so that has made going to work a little easier. I miss them like crazy, but at the same time it has been refreshing to get away and have "me" time. I feel soooo selfish saying that. We pray daily that Dan can find some work for him and we can get back up on our feet. I am grateful for this challenge and trial the Lord has placed upon us. It has been a growing experience for us both and I have learned to trust in my Savior and know that He is watching out for us. I have great respect for Dan as it has been a challenge for him to send me back to work. He has ALWAYS been a HARD worker and provider for us. I love him and know that things will change in due time when we have learned all we need to, to conquer this challenge together. May we never take for granted the things that we have. I am thankful for my sweet little boys and husband. And as long as I have them nothing else maters.
With this said, I am busy busy busy so I took the time this weekend and got caught up on my blogging, please enjoy the 3 new entrees below that I have blogged.

Oh, Cala! Good for you for getting out there during these rough times. I can relate all too well to how you are feeling. I am hoping that one day my kids will realize that when the going got tough mom stepped up to the plate. You have a wonderful attitude about everything. I guess we are what you call "econo-moms"! I saw it somewhere on the internet or Dr Phil-I can't remember :) Anyways, I know that Dan will find a job. He is such a hard worker. Just know that I am so proud of you! Love you tons!!!!!!!!!!
