My Boss Turns Into A Werewolf On The Full Moon

You can almost always tell when there is going to be a full moon. The animals start acting funny, the residents at work are all out of sorts, the children are extra cranky, and my boss turns into a werewolf! 

Speaking of children, I can't believe they are almost back to school. My town started yesterday, but lil man's school starts the 4th. I'm anxious to start my 4th year with him and his family! 
By now, lil man knows the routine so I'm comfortable taking on another boy for care, which I think might be all lined up for next week. 
The only catch is that right now I only provide before care and with this extra boy, I would need to provide after care for him, so I wouldn't be getting home until 5/5:30. Makes for a really long day. 
The only thing that makes me sad is that by the time I get home and get dinner finished, I would only have a lil over an hour to relax before I should be heading to bed to get up at 3 and do it all over again. Oh well though, the pros outweigh the cons. 

My main focus right now is to save up enough money and get out of the apartment we're currently in. It's great on the inside, a lot of space, 1st floor, own full basement, beautiful backyard, but I can't ever go outside because we have no privacy and we are on a bad side of town. So I usually stay inside. I'm hoping to get some land in the next couple years and locate to a more private area, maybe not so in town...

So back to the full moon.. Someone told me that a blue moon means that there are two full moons in one month.. now I don't know if that's true, but I do know this Friday will be our second full moon this month. So keep your eyes out for the 'extra crankies' in the children and the extra bitchiness in every one else! 

  • Do you have ways to tell when it's a full moon besides the calendar?

Easier Said Than Done

Wow, this year, I've really been slack on writing. Between the computer messing up every other week and every day life things, I have not had the time to write any. It didn't dawn on me that I could have picked up a journal for a while, but oh well, next time, right?
I haven't been up to too much. I'm not sitting online all day searching for deals. I wish I could, but I must go to work. A couple more weeks to go and I'll be back to my 3am schedule. And I'll be dead tired for a while. For those who don't know, lil man will be starting school again soon, so I'll be starting before care.

I'm meeting with another parent this afternoon about before and after care. If this goes the way I plan, I will be caring for 2 same age boys from 5:30-7:30ish and then headed to my second job til 3/3:30, and then head back to get one of the boys off the bus at his house. I still clean houses for myself also. I only have a couple accounts though. So yea, busy busy me.
I'm not really big on the neighborhood we live in. It's not a good side of town. Too much drama and I can't even go outside into my own backyard without the neighbors popping their heads over the fence, trying to start a conversation. So it makes working a lot, easier. Just being here reminds me of the goals I am working so hard towards.

My photography is going well. I've had about 4 or 5 events that I've taken pictures at, but I'm learning why photographers charge what they do. Not to take the pictures, it's the time we take editing everything. I photographed my cousin's wedding not too long ago. It was beautiful, but because the lighting wasn't good, I ended up brightening almost every single picture. I think I editing well over 200. And that's just for one event. I still have a lot to edit from other events. 

My goal for the week; I'm hoping to sit down a little bit each day and write something. I'd like to start getting back into blogging. And the holidays are getting closer, have you been keeping up with your holiday box? It's not too late, you can still start filling it up to make your Christmas way less stressful!
