The kids were so excited to paint their own pumpkins this year. And Jameson named our jack o lantern “felicity” (which is ironic, because thats what he named last years pumpkin). I guess when you think you’ve got something good going, you should stick with it? What a guy.
I haven’t shared some big news with you yet.. I’m back at work two days a week. Its been a push for me to get there in the morning and stay until the clock says 4:30pm, but I’m doing it! (If there is one thing pregnancy and childbirth has taught me… its that I’m a lot stronger then I thought I was). I was out of work for a month, so its good to be back and getting out of the house for a paycheck. And- I only have nine weeks left and my job is done. Our entire department will be laid off the beginning of 2012. Prior to finding out we were pregnant, I was making other plans for the New Year.. but now the plan is that I’ll stay home. Crazy! I’m still processing. The thought excites me because I LOVE being a mom. The thought scares me because I love working and being productive. The job of being a full time stay at home mom is much bigger then anything I can do in the working world. So, we’ll take it a step at a time. This next year is going to be a big one!
