|Family picture on Easter|
So, I said yes. The project goes until the end of May, and broken up into 4 parts where I am writing questions for 4 different grade levels. The first due date was only a week after I got my assignment, and I was only trained for about an hour. Needless to say, after that first week of staying up late and trying to do what I could during CJ's naps- I was definitely questioning my decision. I could not do what I normally do being a stay-at-home mom with getting CJ out of the house and not just plopping him in front of the TV AND devote the time needed to do a good job with this project AND get 7-8 hours of sleep with the pace of this job. Thankfully, since the next due date isn't until April 22 I do not feel the stress quite as much. Also, I can say "no" to projects, so if it is a particularly busy time, I can just tell Pearson to keep me in mind for the next one. As long as I get plenty of time to work, I think this job will be just something little to keep my "adult mind" fresh, and more prepared to go back to work when the time comes. Not sure how I will do when there are more kids and less naps in the picture, but I'll keep you posted!
Due to a weird what I think was an inner-ear infection last week, I have not cooked anything too notable that I would want to share with you. Last week was a lot of take-out (dizzy spells and knives-not good), and this week I am just now finally getting motivated to cook again, but really nothing too exciting. Looking forward to sharing something with you soon though. Tomorrow night Syracuse will be playing in the Final Four, so I may be cooking something special for the occasion. Go Orange!
