Goodness, we’re not blogging like we used to! These last few months have been a whirlwind of activity around our household and it’s hard to keep up. All the activities started up again (swimming and scouting), we’ve been trying to get this basement room finished for Evan and it’s not going as quickly as we would like it to go. Our evenings and weekends are a flurry of activity. The biggest thing is that there’s been a fairly significant change at our house: I have a new job!
It’s not a permanent position, but I have been asked to oversee things going on in our Toronto office for the next 3 months. I am now getting up at the buttcrack of dawn and getting on a GO Bus to T.O. every morning. I am being immersed into things at this office that are way out of my comfort zone. I did ask for it though (I indicated I wanted to take on more ‘supervisory’ type work), so I can’t complain. I am looking forward to the challenge and so far, I am enjoying being in here.
Unfortunately, with my travel time increasing by another hour and a half (that’s both ways combined), I am not as available at home as I used to be. Which means Amy is picking up the slack. That’s a negative…being the caregiver to seven children is NOT easy and now she has to take on a bit more work. For instance, I used to make dinner mostly every night…now, because I don’t get home as early as I used to, she’s picking up a few more days of that. I am hoping that I will still get home early enough on Mondays and Thursdays to at least take that chore off her hands (Amy doesn’t much like cooking, even though she’s AMAZING at it). Hopefully I can pick up other chores that aren’t time specific, like laundry duty.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
