Wow… we have been busy. Where did the summer go? We’re already half way through fall. The job is kicking my butt. Well, not really but it is incredibly busy. I knew I wanted to get back into Senior Management when I took the job but it is a lot more taxing time wise. Everything on my To Do List is a “1” priority. Fourth quarter is a big time in fundraising, not to mention all the government apps that are coming up… they started in September and will hopefully end in December. Luckily I have an awesome grant writer who takes a lot of the load off. The weeks when Jim is gone are the worst. I can’t stay late or I have to make child care arrangements for Robert after preschool. Luckily one of his teachers is absolutely awesome with him and can take him on nights that I need. I also have to remind myself of everything the 30% pay increase is affording us. Like Disney.
Yes, we actually pulled off what we’ve been planning/hoping for since Robert was born. We surprised him on his birthday with a trip to Disney World. We were there for a week. We NEEDED that trip, all of us. It has been forever since we went out of town where it didn’t involve tagging along on one of Jim’s work trips or visiting family. It was a perfect week. Absolutely magical. Jim was out of town the week before we left and the week we got back but it was worth it.
Some of our Photo Pass pictures. So nice to have pictures with all three of us together!
