At the end of March my year long maternity leave comes to an end. I am extremely sad about this. Jeff and I have always said we would NEVER put Sophia into daycare. Nothing against daycare it's just not the right place for our child. However, I do have to return to work. We have some big goals for '09..the biggest being that we plan to purchase a house in Hot Springs, AR in the fall. Our plan is to spend 6 months in Vancouver and 6 months in Hot Springs. As you can imagine, owning two homes in two different countries takes a lot of money! Before Sophia I was working full time with Jeff. I took care of the books, did some advertising for one of our clients at the time and did a lot of the odd jobs around the office. I intend to go back and help with the books, I just have no idea how I'm going to do it and keep Sophia at the same time. Since we need my full salary I've got to find a creative way to do that full time and be mommy. I've thought of working part time and then finding a way (from home) to make up the other half of my salary. I have a few thoughts bouncing around but nothing set in stone. Obviously, Jeff and I will need to discuss this matter more and I'll need to do some praying and soul searching.
