My weekend plans.

This weekend I am heading back to Camp Cowen to help my hubby chaperone the highschool girls from our church who are attending their yearly Fall Rally. 
This will be my 1st time not being home to relax after a full work week. I wonder if I will have the energy level needed to sleep in a cabin. Guess we'll see!
I am excited about taking little Allee. She LOVES Cowen!! She also has a friend there that I hope she can get a chance to play with!
We leave Friday at 6ish and get home in the evening on Saturday. 
I would dread going if my hubby hadn't just helped with some housework I needed to do. He is WONDERFUL.
Yep. It is going to be a fun time! I am looking forward to it. Now to look up weather so that I can pack accordingly.
XOXO, MARIA

My 1st week at my NEW JOB!!

Guys I got the job!!!
I am so excited I can't even begin to express it! I'm paying for my girls to be able to go to school and I'm contributing towards bills and it feels wonderful!! I know that as a stay-at-home mom I contributed a lot to my family dynamic, but there's something about being able to give financially towards expenses that feels amazing! 
Anyway, my first week passed and I can't tell you how great it was. The first three days I was training and would have to say that while I had what I feel like we're "training wheels" I was able to glean a lot of information from the person training me. By the fourth day she sort of did the 50/50 of letting me work by myself and assisting me. By day 5 she had gone out of town and I was working by myself! I can't tell you how awesome it felt to be able to sit at my desk and do the job that I was trained to do within 5 days AND feel like I was doing it well. It's a great feeling.

It also doesn't…
