Dentist check today. While my hygenist was proud of me they found an eleventh hole in my mouth between the teeth. Crap! I hate that. I was hoping that it would be a good check-up and it was but I'm just concerned with all the holes that form. I know its sugar in my diet and again. Vitamin D. Today was better though. I definitely consumed less sugar and I'm making my way down to none. I should probably just cold turkey it but different strokes for different folks you know.

I can't believe I'm saying this but my son went to bed at 10:30pm tonight. He hasn't done this in weeks! We've tried but he fights it! It was around 1 to 2am until he got sick and then it was 3 and 4am and guess who got to stay up with him?? Me of course!

I have a meeting with a new boss lady tomorrow. This means I'm happy to report I've landed a couple of weekend jobs and I want to keep them. I get so sick of hearing my husband tell me we have to stretch this and that and I should live on sandwiches everyday because we have no money. I'm trying to be on his side but it wouldn't hurt me to work a little bit and it certainly would not hurt for me to get out of the house too. I'll be merchandising for a plant company and I'll also be a product promoter as well. Its probably going to turn into eight hour days and I know Josh isn't happy because he'll be watching Joey on the weekends but I'm tired of struggling and being at the house all day. I don't mind staying at home with my son. He's sweet and funny and I love him but it can be super tough at the same time. I am not able to cook or clean or get anything done. I just sit on the couch and keep him company because he wants me right there with him. I've been home bound for over two years now and if we're not going to use day care then my only free time is the weekends.

Plus I would really like to save up to pay off a credit card. I'm not sure if my job money will do it though. Our food budget is practically non-existant each week and we're always trying to pay bills late to make up for it.

I'm still thinking of maybe babysitting children his age during the week for extra money and so he could make friends. I don't know though. Not sure if I have the energy. I'm lucky that I have the space to do that if I change my mind.

    I think your ideas about making extra money are great. You really do need to get out of the house and be with other adults. All mommies do. I hope this new sleep schedule for Joey sticks!!
