Here I Go Again

I mentioned in my previous post that I was faced with the dilemma of whether or not to accept an offer from my previous employer/ former boss. The thing that was making the decision so hard for me was that I'm enjoying being a stay at home mom so much, and I didn't want to let that go.

I called my former boss yesterday to ask some more questions and have her clarify what this position would look like. I'm so glad I did because the answers to those questions made my decision so much easier.

I thought that we were looking at a long term commitment, and I just wasn't ready to commit to working again, even if it was just a few hours a week. One of the best things about being a stay at home mom is the freedom we have as a family. I don't have to beg for time off for family reunions and vacations. Any time that Caleb has off is automatic family time and we LOVE it!

Anyway, she told me that I would only be commiting to a month of work. I would train some of her new employees for about a month and then I would be done. Knowing that I was only commiting for a month made it an easy yes for me, so I accepted.

The bonus for me is that I'll earn some extra money to get some things we need. Plus,Caleb and I will have some extra spending money for our cruise in June. Sweet!

I can't believe I'll be returning to work tomorrow. When I left at the end of September, I thought I'd never be back. I hope it's not too weird or awkward. Oh well, if it is, I can do anything for 1 month, right?!

In other news, we had a great day as a family today. Caleb has today and tomorrow off and then he's off to Belize. So I really cherished our time together.

The weather was perfect (welcome spring), and we were all in good spirits. Elliana was especially happy to have both of her parents around all day and to be outside so much. She loves being outside.

I guess that's it for now. Elliana's sleeping peacefully in her crib and I'm off to watch a movie with Caleb and snuggle with him on the couch. :)

That's awesome Christine! What a blessing to have a short term commitment at work to bring in a little extra money without having to worry about always working or having a long time commitment! I'm so glad you accepted, it sounds like a great opportunity! So glad you, Caleb and Elliana were able to enjoy some quality time together in this beautiful weather!

I'm excited for you to go back to work. I think it was a perfect answer to prayer.

About Me

My Photo
I am a daughter of the King. Saved by grace. Follower of Christ. I love my God and I believe that he is faithful and true to his word! I'm still figuring out and trying to follow his plan for my life. I am a wife to my best friend Caleb, a mother to my miracle babies (they are my greatest joy and challenge), a sister and best friend to 3 passionate women, and a daughter to 2 amazing parents that continue to teach me what it is to be real and faithful to God and his word. I am lucky to get to be a stay at home Mom (thanks to God's provision). I love music, singing, coffee, cooking, baking, traveling, our beautiful state of Colorado, and mostly being with the family and friends that I love!

Husband, Caleb

Caleb is an amazing husband and father. He is always so good to me. He is my best friend. He is the romantic one. We love to laugh and spend time together. We've been married for 7 years and I just love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Our 1st Miracle

Our 1st Miracle
Elliana Faith... God blessed us with our first miracle little girl in December 2008. She is sweet, smart, spunky, funny, strong willed, precocious, extremely outgoing, vocal and so full of life! She brings us so much joy.

Our 2nd Miracle

Our 2nd Miracle
Ethan James,.. God blessed us with our little boy in March 2011. Ethan was a bit of a surprise and an even bigger miraclle. Ethan is ALL BOY! He is very active, into sports and running around. He is also sweet, introverted, affectionate, and laid back. These days he often has us laughing, he's starting to show a little bit of "clown" in him. He makes our hearts happy too. :)

Our 3rd Miracle

Our 3rd Miracle
Emsley Jeannette... Our surprise baby girl was born on June 11th, 2013 and came into the world 4 weeks early. Her first 2 weeks of life were spent in the NICU, but due to God's hands and the prayers of many people, she grew quickly and came home to join our family! She is an easy, sweet baby and we are enjoying getting to know her personality.


We fight one day and then the next day we're fine. We're always loud and crazy when we get together. We're very passionate. We've been through it all together, lots of ups and downs. We're eachother's biggest supporters.
