Relief Short Lived

I was so excited as I wrote that last post.

Went in the next morning and passed the baton back to Jerry's assistant who had returned from medical leave. Nearly skipped out of there and immediately called a couple SAHM friends in efforts to rejoin the circles I had left so abruptly in November.

Took my girls to the dentist...which is actually a very fun outing for them and then we went to the park to feed the ducks. The fun of unstructured days had returned and the farming them out to gain work time had ended.

Then I got a brief text from Jerry. "She resigned".

Effective immediately I am once again my hubby's assistant. Brings new meaning to "sleeping with your boss". ;)

Hoping this will be a 4-6 week stint while they search for a permanent replacement.

I am remembering that I actually do like blogging and used to come wind down here often. That being said I hope to throw a few posts up now and then again and even visit some of your pages soon. Shocker!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Not sure that anyone is still checking my page here in blogland after my crazy 6-7 week absence.


Rachelle and her boys were the headlines for quite a while! They did come and sadly was so good to have them around for a bit. My girls loved every minute with them!

Are they not the most handsome boys!?!

The week of their visit marked a crazy time for us. My husband's assistant at the church went out on medical leave and they were having a hard time finding a temporary replacement for her. We threw my name in the hat, partly knowing that it wouldn't even be considered due to nepotism, etc. But we were wrong! We got a shocking call the Sunday after Thanksgiving that I got the job.

So, ever since 11/29, I have been reporting to Jerry 3 days a week up at our church. It has been a whirlwind. With the help of one of my good friends and my precious in-laws taking care of the girls, it has mainly been a delight. So great to get to see Jerry in his role and interact with the church on a different level. Fun to sneak a few lunches with him and get an extra paycheck. But overall, I am tired! Juggling this new endeavor with the holidays and my regular part-time job definitely was a challenge. Many evening events over the past few weeks about put me over the edge! Alas, his assistant is starting back again tomorrow.

So...hello again! What have I missed!?!
