Within Me Without Me

i am such a blogging slug...

i am sure all of my avid, daily readers (all 2 of you) have noticed the alarming and sharp decrease in the frequency of my captivating and informative posts.

either i'm suddenly developing some scruples about spending time on the clock at work blogging, or i've just been too swamped at work to remember to blog, or some of both. more of the latter, actually. since when do i worry about cheating the county?

so did you know that in the next couple of years, there is a real possibility of me getting to become a stay at home mom? how cool would that be!?!? and no, i am not suggesting that this will be easier, i know how much there is to do. i just miss seeing my kids all day, and until more money is coming in to make it all happen, i have to work. but several things are on the horizon in the next year or two that may very well tip the scales in our favor.....
1. jerry gets raises every 6 months for another year
2. child support payments will decrease when alec turns 18, and possilby go away if we get custody of the boys. (another post altogether....)
3. aidan will go to pre-k and kindergarten

i think i can hang in there for another 2 or 3 years, and then i can be that mommy that goes on field trips and can get her kids to baseball practice at 5:30 and go to the grocery store on tuesday afternoon and such. and i probably still won't do the laundry until it's 2 feet deep on my closet floor, but i'll have played with my kids all day!!! and that's accomplishing something.

    Oh, such a wonderful goal. It's mine too. Right now I am SO not a stay at home mom. It's more like take your kids to work day every day.

    And yes, you are a slug, and yes it's true you won't do laundry until the pile is two feet tall no matter WHAT is going on. :) But we love you.
