To be honest, I had planned on linking up and writing a Working It post for today. The topic is balancing work and home life, but when I actually sat down to write I just wanted to laugh. Isn’t balancing work and home life what all working moms strive for? And don’t we all feel (at least at times) as if we are still trying to figure it all out? So while there are many things I have found that help our family run smoothly, let’s be honest. There is only one key to any success I have at being a working mom…I have amazing support. Without Shane and my mom, this family would fall apart. For eleven years I worked night shift, seven days in a row, then seven days off. Without Shane to pick up more that his fair share on those weeks, we would not have survived. Last June I was fortunate enough to leave my night shift days behind and start working part time. While I am home more, I still cannot do this alone. We have been so blessed to have Mimi watch the kids while I work and all of those other times i need to run people to various appointments and practices. Thank you, Mom! So there is my secret to how I Work It 🙂
Since I don’t have any earth shattering secrets to balancing work-family life, let’s get on with #everydayelsbury
A peek at life this week…
After work this evening I made the trek to the parking garage and up to the second floor for my car. Only my van wasn’t there. Hmm. So I went down to the first level. No van. Up to the third level. No van. Then back down to two where I swear I parked. Nope. Then back to one where FINALLY I find my van on the far end of the aisle. I hope the security guys watching the cameras got a good laugh out of that one. #dudewheresmycar
Brackets are done! Ready for some March Madness (P.S. I don’t think the Elsbury fellas will be winning the bracket pool) #godawgs
This morning we finished up The Armor of God at women’s bible study. Not only did I win The Prince Warriors for having not showered before study but I also got wrapped in a suit of armor made out of Reynolds wrap.
Working on their first duet.
We’ve got the snacks covered.
What do 8 women do when they leave 30 (and counting!) kids home with the husbands for the weekend? Absolutely nothing. And it was glorious. #chinamamas #thatsalotofkids
