Explaining my abscense

I recently started a new job, and therefore have little time left to work on my projects. I have completed a few new projects, and hope to have pictures posted soon. I made a scarf to go with my Bella hat, finished the dinosaur for my son (my own pattern, to be posted for free as soon as I figure it out :p), as well as a Valentine Monster holding a Crocheted Rose. I forgot to take a picture of the monster after I made it, before giving it to a friend, but am making another one, which I hope to remember to take a picture of.

In the meantime, things are very much changed for me. Instead of being home all day and taking care of the house, I now leave for work before the kids get on the bus, and get home a few hours after they do. My mother retired from her job, and has taken over the role of caregiver while I'm gone, as well as taking care of the house and meals. It is quite an adjustment, and we are still trying to get used to our new roles.

For now, my new job has me working Monday through Friday, leaving the house at 6:45am, and not getting home until 5:45pm. This is the training period though, and my schedule will soon change. Hopefully I'll be able to have a day off during the week, and not leave until after the kids are on the bus. Although it feels good to be back in the working world, I do miss the time with my children.
