As many of you already know, hubby's job often takes him out of town Mon.-Thurs. This was not a really big deal before booger came along, or even while I was pregnant. But since the baby was born, it's been a bit more difficult to manage, even though I am a stay-at-home parent.
Sometimes, it's been GREAT, because when hubs is in town, he works from home. This has led to lots of long family lunches and other great time together over the past year. But it has also led to a whole lotta weeks when booger and I hardly saw Brian. And now that the baby is old enough to notice when Daddy's not here, it's becoming a bit of a problem. (Not to mention that hubs is pretty exhausted from traveling and has stockpiled more frequent flyer miles than we will probably use in the next decade.)
In an effort to remedy that, hubs has found a local job. YAY! So now, we will ALL get to see each other more.
This opens up a couple of other possibilities as well. I hadn't considered returning to work until now, because being a single, working mom Mon.-Fri. was NOT what I signed up for when we started a family. But now that hubs will be local, sharing duties during the week, returning to the office could definitely be a possibility. IF the right job came along.
Soooo, I guess we'll see! Yikes!
