I'm finally digging myself out of the mountain of life that has been on top of the Martins since Christmas ended.
In an unusual series of events, I got a job! It was just for a month and it was processing payroll; which is probably better than processing chicken parts--unless you get to sit down in chicken factories.
I took the work because the same time that Minnesota State University was furloughing for two weeks a friend needed help completing all the year end work payrolls require. It was kismet and I felt like when the fates combine that well, you got to take advantage of it.
But I can't tell you how happy I am to resume my life as trophy wife. Which is funny, because in all my growing years, I never wanted to be a Stay-At-Home-Mom. I pictured myself as a highly capable working mother, saving the world and making dinner.
Sadly, I couldn't cut it the real world. But in my defense, I was working 10 hour days at a physically demanding job that didn't require a high school degree. But in rebuttal to my defense: That's the real world.
So, now I'm back to the easy life of constant cleaning, cooking, driving, shopping, policing, loving, and diaper changing. I just now have twice the cooking, cleaning, shopping...etc. because as good a superman that my husband is, things where starting to get a bit desperate around here.
Ahh, yes, Life is good!

Welcome back to the internet! We've missed you. I guess the grass is never greener on the other side.
