here is some back story:
We've been have a tough go of it for the past 6-8 months. My hubby Jason was diagnosed with a herniated disk and had to stop working and stop school (he's training to be a Nurse). We had baby making plans, and I was socking away 45% of my pay cheques so we could survive new baby time. Then *blamo* Jason couldn't walk a block. he stopped working and 110% of my pay went to rent, bills and food. Not knowing WHAT was going on we ditched our baby plans (*sob* I was really looking forward to starting a family) and concentrated on getting Jason better. FF to now, October 27 2010.
Jason can now walk more than a block! He's going back to school, and back to work. but our savings are dwindleing, and my boss, he lost a contract, so we had no work. I had started to look for extra work, and got 2 other jobs. silly me, I should have known better. Boss got the contract BACK along with a new one. he needs me too. I now have 3 sparkle-y jobs. Do you know what else I did? I went and signed myself up for 2 days at a craft fair. *headdesk* so really, I kinda have 4 jobs haha.
Rebecca using 110% of pay to survive, Jason hating himself for not being able to walk a block, let alone work.
Rebecca has 3(4) jobs, is for now sill paying the bills, has 6 weeks until craft fair, 8 until Christmas (oh, did I meantion that I'm crazy and have decided to MAKE all my Christmas gifts from now on? oh, and a friends baby shower is coming up...I'm making stuff for her too >.< )
Jason will be starting work in a few weeks, and is back in school Jan.
Baby making plans back on the table. (note *plans*. we are not trying right now)
I'm busy. I hate being busy.
BUT. the season is about to end (4 more weeks??), oh, did I tell you waht I do? I'm a gardener/landscaper. we do maintenance until the end of November, once the leaves have all fallen really.
so what am I doing blogging you ask? I worked a 10 hour day! lol, and I just sewed for 2 hours...have half a diaper bag done. I LOVE it, and want to keep it for myself. That's always a good sign. it makes me feel double good when I give something away that I love.
