Remember how I talked about having an interview? Well I got the job! It feels a little weird to talk about after being a SAHM for over a year but I'm excited to get started. I'm going in tonight to do some paperwork and attend my first training class. Hopefully I can work out my schedule to where we won't need much help with R. I should be working mostly afternoons/evenings and weekends and Travis has school during the day. I still think it would be good for Raedyn to go to some type of daycare with other kids but I really don't want to pay for it! Things are going to be pretty tight for a while since I won't be making nearly as much as what T was when he was working.
In other news, we bought R a potty! Not just any potty, it had to be an ELMO potty. We're not potty training yet but I figure it doesn't hurt to get one now so she's used to it. She was so excited when she saw Elmo and just kept shouting "Elmo! Elmo!" in the store. She already loves to sit on it and "flush" it. It even has a handle that makes a flushing noise! Isn't it cute?
I am a horrible blogger!
Well, I guess I'll update all of my 4 followers on the changes happening around here. I never wrote about it but Travis got word a while back that he would be deploying in the spring with another unit. We were preparing ourselves for that and I was going to move back home to my parents with R and the pups. I certainly wasn't thrilled about it but we were trying to look at the bright side of things. It would have been a lot more money and we also would have qualified for a VA loan when he got back so we could buy a house. We didn't hear anything for a while and were wondering what was up. T found out that the mission changed and the unit didn't need as many people anymore. So far he hasn't been on the list to go so we might be in the clear for a while. Of course that can change at any time.
When he realized he most likely wouldn't be going T finally took the plunge and enrolled in classes at a community college. He actually started classes today! I'm am proud of him and support him 100% but now I'm faced with my time as a SAHM ending and having to find a job. My goal was to find a nanny job that would allow me to bring R but those are hard to find. I'm actually starting to like the idea of her going to some sort of daycare, I think it will be good for her. I have an interview tomorrow with an agency that works with special needs children. I'm hoping it works out and I can start working soon!
