It seems the Winter has finally lifted its foot off my little neck of the woods. Though the temperature is still a but touchy, it feels good to look forward to the sun blinding me with a cool,not cold, breeze on my back. I’m also looking forward to bringing Avery outside more. I have been itching to show the entire neighborhood the cause for my tired eyes and reflective smile.

But its not all sunshine and rainbows despite the rising temperatures. I dont know what to do with myself. Ive been going back in forth in my mind about whether I want to go back to work outside the house or make a real go of working from home. Both options scare me but for different reasons. Going back to work outside is fine but my mom would watch the children and her health is not the best. Daycare is not an option because I just don’t trust people. I have a friend who could maybe help me out but she has 7 children of her own.

On the flip side, I could make a go of being a work at home mom. I have affiliate links on here and I could stary reaching out to brands to work with. I have people in my online community who could help me figure out how to approach brands,come up wit a media kit,etc. The down side to that is I probably won’t be making much to start off with. However, my ideal situation is to work from home so I can take care of the kids and look after my mom.

I am really confused as to what my next steps are going to be. I know I need an income as soon as possible and I need to be proactive in making things happen. But while I’m praying and waiting on the Lord to order my steps, I’m going to enjoy this time of renewal,fresh starts, and beautiful tulips. Maybe the answer will reveal itself in the nature around me,who knows?

  1. That decision is always so hard! With my first I went back to work and missed him terribly! When he was born I realized how much I had grown to hate my job. When he was four I quit my job with grand plans of being a photographer and making money at home. Ha! I fell on my face with that and hear I sit, 8 years later and with a 4 and a 12 year old, wondering if I made the right decision, in some ways, and knowing I did in others. I feel like there is a lot I never accomplished but I also feel like I’ve gained so much more being home with them both. My husband works two jobs (I’ve offered to go back to work more than once) and starts a new one (dropping the other two, thankfully!) in May, or this wouldn’t be possible. I homeschool the oldest and ramble on my blog and finally gave up that stupid photographer dream.

    All this to say : you’ll figure out what’s best for you. And if you make the wrong decision, you can always go back and make the right one.


  2. I really hope you can find what works for you. It’s so hard to find something that works around everyone and doing something you enjoy too. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you.
