So things for our family are becoming a lot easier for our family as I am no longer a stay at home mom.

At the beginning of April we got the call from the local YMCA that a spot had opened up in the before and after school care program for Monkey.  I had three days to decide if we wanted to take it and it was a huge decision to make as I didn’t have a job to go back to.  After much deliberation I decided to go for it as we honestly need the second income and no matter when a spot came up it would be the same case… paying for the spot before I had a job to pay for the spot.  Thankfully my MIL was able to help us out one last time.  It took me about four weeks to find a job but I have been working full time since May 5. We are adjusting to our new routines.  I don’t think this current job is the best fit for our family so I am still  looking for something with a bit less hours as I am currently working five days a week and don’t get home until after dinner.  That being said, having full cupboards again is honestly the best feeling in the whole world and my heart goes out to all the other families struggling to feed their families.

We are slowly going to build up a savings account so that any financial set backs won’t having us live pay cheque to pay cheque again.
