Remember the kind-of-sort of job I got? Well, finally today I got the real offer with a start date, Sept 17th, a few days after I turn 35. First time in over 5 years I’ll be a working stiff again. Oh, I should put that in a better light. I’m going to be the “provider”! Woo hoo! I’m making the kibble.

Edda’s been going to PT, OT and speech therapies each once a week at this place that I like, it’s about 20-25 minutes away from the house. One of the reasons I took the above said job is because it has really nice health insurance which will cover a lot of these expenses.

I hadn’t really thought this whole thing trough carefully about scheduling the therapies, I was like, oh, Jeremy will take care of it or if he’s working, we’ll have to bite the bullet and hire someone to be at the house to drive Edda to her therapies. But then it occurred to me that based on the time Edda gets home from school and when Vince gets home from school, how long it takes to get to the therapy place, the fact that the therapy appointments fall on the hour and the fact that the therapy appointments are fully booked for pretty much all after school appointments that it is physically impossible for one person to take care of the 2 kids and go to these appointments. If we were both working, we would have to hire 2 people and pray that we get either a 3 or 4 pm slot, which are pretty much fully booked at this time anyways. Hmmm. A conundrum.

I’m not worried. We are going to figure this out. Thank goodness we don’t have 7 kids. What would I do?


Wrinkled Jeremy.

  1. congrats on the job!!! How exciting! I hope everything works out with the therapies. Are there any therapists that will come into your home? scheduling is one of the reasons I’ve been slacking on getting Caitlyn therapy outside of school. How exciting for you guys!

  2. Congrats on the job!!!! Some yummy yarny goodness shall be arriving sometime next week for one hard working mom!!

  3. Very Cool about the job!! CONGRATS!! The schedule will eventually work itself out (after some sleeples nights and pulling your hair out)but I promise, it will all work out JUST FINE! As far as seven kids….I can’t even type those words without having another cup of coffee.

  4. Seven kids! That is nuts if you ask me and I know people who have more than three and well, they are nuts. I am really happy you got a job though. Hang in there for those first few months. It will be a bit stressful but routine will get things on the right path. What about aftercare for Vince at the school or a club, etc.

  5. hi doris! congrats on the job! I’m sure things will work out. I emailed your yahoo account, did you get it? Sue
