Still alive!

My poor, little blog rarely gets any love from me, which makes me feel very sorry for it. Therefore, I'm going to start blogging more regularly, if only to make myself feel more... productive? Yeah, let's go with that.
Well, I don't really have anything terribly life-altering to post about; I'm not in school right now, & have been out of a solid job for a few months now. I blame the economy, because really- that is the reason that I've been out of work for this long. It's been incredibly discouraging, but today I received some very joyous news- starting tomorrow, I am going to be watching a 16-month old baby girl on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays. She lives in our neighborhood, & my mom actually watches her on Mondays & Fridays, so she'll be spending 5 days a week at our house. She is the cutest little thing since Tess was that age. [That's not to say that Tess isn't still the most adorable girl in the universe, because she is. But there is nothing like a chubby little toddler, & kids just grow up way too fast these days!] Anyway, watching her will be a blessing for me, because not only will I be making money- and not having to get any taxes taken out of my paycheck- but it will also just be great to be doing a daycare-type job again. I've been missing my babies so much from the 2 daycares I've worked at over the past year. It's tough to go from taking care of them all day, all week long, & then suddenly never seeing them again. And some of those kids I had been taking care of since they were new babies; it was sad for me to bond with them & love them so much, & then just kind of be cut off. Some of them would even cry when their moms came to pick them up at the end of the day, because they didn't want to leave me. Which honestly made me feel horrible sometimes, but also happy to know that they loved me back. Anyway, the point is, it's a good-news day! I figured such a day was deserving of a blog-entry, so... that's about all I've got for now. Check back in soon, & see how much better I get at posting! 'Cause that's totally gonna happen. ; )
