Well, it looks like I WON'T be losing my job after all. Wild Thing's mom waited too long to start looking for a nanny. I am not unhappy about it. I will go from watching her 2 days a week to 4 days a week for 5 weeks and it will be a blessing financially. Tattoo here I come!!

I don't have a problem with blending her right into my plans - I run errands with the three kids as it is. Even the grocery store.

Giving my 2 weeks would not really work out well in this situation. Wild Thing's mom and I are friends (she's the atheist I am trying to get to church) and they live 3 doors down from me. Also I talked to her about it again, and it really seems as though she was just trying to make her life easier and not that she had a problem with my care of her daughter. That I do understand. I am pretty sure I will be done child care altogether after the summer anyway. She is looking for a 5 day full time pre-school for her DD and mine is only going 2 mornings a week (plus a dance class another day)Thing 1 will be in kindergarten 5 mornings a week (it's half day in this area).

Wow! There's a light at the end of the tunnel. Losing the extra cash will stink. I keep it aside for my garden stuff and little extras for the kids (happy meals, toys, quarters for the rides at the mall) that way they (and I) got the little extra things that just were not in the budget. Also when we are REALLY tight I use it as extra grocery money (or only grocery money).

I know that God will provide. I also know he has been nudging me in a certain direction, which may mean some big changes in the next year or so. His plan is greater than mine, I will listen to my heart and pray on it lots more before I post about it here.

It will be revealed to you, don't worry. Whatever the next few months brings, you will be ready for it!

You are in my prayers!! Big decisions should not be taken lightly-do your homework!! Also-you can always change your mind!!

I do at least once a week, but then I change it back!!
