I am sitting here at the hospital a little bored. Ava is sleeping and I am anxiously awaiting Nate and Kaden's arrival. So I decided to ask all of you two (totally non-related) questions.
#1-Does anybody watch The Newlyweds (or something like that). It is kind of like a couple "survivor", not that I watch Survivor. It comes on right after Oprah's Big Give. Well, if you do and you watched this last episode can somebody tell me who was voted off. I have been wondering. I watched part of it and for some reason didn't watch the very end so now it is kind of bugging me not knowing.
OK second question...
#2-Nate and I have been discussing the whole working situation. I am no longer a stay at home mom (oh for the last year or so), but with Ava we really feel I need to be. There is no way we would put her in to daycare and take the risk of her catching something. So we have been pondering the type of stay at home jobs. I really need to work. We are trying to save up enough money to build a house on a lot that we have, but unfortunately with all of the doctor bills (and boy there is A LOT) that will be absolutely impossible without a second income. Right now we are in a small apartment, that is going to be extra small when Ava comes home. My husband is a police officer and his schedule is really crazy so I think personally it is crazy for him to think about a second job. I thought about working part time when Nate gets home from work, but like I have said, his schedule is not very reliable on him being home at a certain time.
With Kaden it has been kind of easy. He has a nurse that is with him during the day while we are gone. Ava will most likely not get a nurse (which is a good thing, meaning she is "healthy" enough). I have thought about watching two or so newborns-toddlers, but then we run into problems there...what if they are sick, what if my kids are sick and/or at the hospital (which will happen when she has her next surgery). So that is where I at....any ideas that will allow me to stay at home but make enough money to help get rid of the bills (if that is even possible : )) and eventually allow us to build a home? Thanks in advance.
