Hello again!

It's been too too long since I've last posted something, but I thought I would try again to revive my blog. 

First, updates on my life and one of the biggest reasons why I've decided to start blogging again. Up until a few days ago, I was working a full-time job outside of the home and now I'm not. And no, I didn't get fired or let go. I actually resigned. Why you may ask?  Well now, I will have the time to start doing my other full-time job, full-time during the day: being a mom to my two young children, Jacob (6) and Chloe (3). My husband and I are very fortunate to only need one parent (my husband, Calvin) work full-time outside of the home. 

This is definitely a big change for me as I've been working full-time since my first job after university (minus a couple of mat leaves). And I will be honest, I was hesitant at first. Even though we were in a similar situation not too long ago (Calvin was at home with the kids for about a year while I worked a full-time job) and we were okay with our finances, it still scared me to be the one who was not working. But after mulling the thought over for a while and getting emotional support from my friends and co-workers, I was mentally ready to make the change. And once I started thinking about it even more, I started getting excited.

Of course, the main purpose of me staying at home full-time is to look after the kids and making sure Jacob stays on track for school. However, I am keeping my fingers crossed that maybe I will also get a chance to maybe start some projects on my own (more on this in future postings), including updating my blog regularly. My own stuff however (the bigger projects at least), can't get started until I get some other stuff done first. Like, getting the house in order. BIG TASK. As a mother of 2 little kids (and one big one), I'm sure (I hope) that there are a lot of you out there who understand me that keeping a tidy household is not easy.

So here is my current task list of things to get done in the next couple of weeks (I'm being really hopeful here):

  1. Fold piles of laundry that have been sitting there for weeks AND put them away
  2. Iron washed clothes that have been sitting there for weeks AND put them away
  3. Vacuum and mop floors, upstairs AND downstairs
  4. Organize kids' clothing (this will definitely have to be an ongoing task)
  5. Organize my clothing
  6. Organize Calvin's clothing (ugh, the bane of my existence)

I'll leave it at that for now. Wish me luck, comrades.
