It really isn't that hard

Right before we left to come to Utah I was offered a nannying job, actually two of them. It has been a long time since we have had an income and  I thought it was a great idea since it is something I can do with Lacey.

It has only been 3 days and I haven't even started the second job. I'm just not used to having to work around any schedule other than Lacey's nap schedule. Now I am trying to get everything done, get Lacey down for a nap, and make it to the school to pick up the kids I am watching. Writing it out makes me realize that it isn't really that much, but right now it's a little overwhelming. I'm sure that I will figure it all out eventually and it will become easier.

I just keep telling myself that I am lucky enough to be able to be with Lacey all day. It's true, I wouldn't want it any other way. I know that this is a wonderful opportunity for. I just have been spoiled over the last 14 months not needing to do anything other than hang out with Lacey and do the occasional grocery shopping (and food prep, and house cleaning).

Having the extra money will definitely be worth it, I just need to buck up and stop being lazy.
