I feel like such a bad host lately. Things have been so hectic that I have not been giving this board the attention it needs.
This past month has been beyond crazy, between the adoption, adoption party, starting an etsy shop, starting a new job, and the kids.
Last Monday I got a phone call asking me if I still wanted the job that I interviewed for a couple weeks ago, of course I said yes. On Tues I started orientation and more orientation on Wed which was also the kids last day of school. Thursday I started training. Than had a three day weekend which was hectic because with all the change (two of Alex's therapist's left, school ending and mommy getting a new job) has caused all three of my kiddo's to be off, but Alex is the worse. He has been so whinny, and crying and having fits about anything and everything. Katie has not been listening at all and doing things that she knows she is not supposed to be doing, including cutting her curtains with scissors this past week. Aiden has been whinny too and having little tantrums when he is told no. But I have remained patient because I know all this change at once is hard on any child but more so on a child with special needs.
This week is just as hectic. I am training 8 hours a day all week, add to that my doctors appointment and Katies doctor appointment, both of which I couldn't reschedule and its going to be a long week. Next week is gonna be just as bad if not worse. I have 8 hours of orientation on Monday, 2.5 hours on Tues and then I start shadow training for 8 hours a day for the next 4 days.
After that I will start working on my own so it will be so much better. I will only be working on Fri and Sat from 4pm to 1am. And then if they need me more I will be able to pick up more hours but only if I want.
So needless to say I will try to get on here as much as I can during these next two weeks but I can't gaurantee anything. I hope everyone is doing great though!!!
I found out today that my schedule is actually going to be worse than I thought. The only day I have off is Sat and then work until Thurs. So basically I work from this past Monday until next week Thurs with only one day off. Then the following week I will be working Sun-Thurs. And then who knows after that. While I'm not complaining about the pay checks I will recieve, it just sucks that my kids are not used to being away from me that much and its going to take them some time to get used of it. And once they are used of it I might end up only working two days a week, which will throw them off again.
