Woot! Glad you arrived safely! You have been missed on DC. Glad you're able to check in every now and again as you and Shrek get settled. Good luck with the new job.

Thanks everyone!! Started work last night, on my way back tonight. Things are going well, but we will not be able to close on the house until July 10th...so we are living in a motel for now.

The cats are living the Life of Riley at Mom's in my Sister's closet. They are both massively angry and won't come see me when I visit.

Yes, back on nights, this will not be a tough transition. I'm already sleeping better and being very alert through the night. Now if I could get others to take the daytime sleeping seriously. If I say 3 PM, I mean 3 PM is a good time to visit...4 PM, I'll be rude, get ready for work and leave.

Did get to see my Niece who is named after me, yesterday...she's growing up!!!

There are the folks who do not have to be a working woman. They get to stay home and wait for their husbands paycheck on Thursday or Friday. I don't blame you for being rude.

When Pirate was a newborn infant, I went to work on a temporary basis. My husband had been hurt at work and was out for about six weeks. I deliberate took the second shift so my husband could keep any medical appointments he had and I could get some sleep after I sent the two oldest to school. Then I grabbed me a couple of more hours of sleep. I would shut the phone off, and ignored the door bell. My girlfriends finally got the message. Don't bother me. If it is important, write it down and you can tell me later when I get up and go to the school to get the kids. Meet me at the school gate.

When you don't have to work, you forget that those who do are on a tight schedule. Become rude if you have to. Hopefully they will get the hint, and if not, watch out. She is mad and is about to let you know!

My BIL does telemarketing from his home. He has a very hard time making people understand that afternoons and evenings he is working. Mornings are the best time for visiting. That is always one of the bad points of working from home, and also shift work.

Addie,
You of all people should know that just because some "Folks" choose to stay home to raise their families aren't working.I personally don't sit here and wait for the checks to arrive.Trust me I'm the first one up.Last to go to bed.Why? Because I'm working! And yes I get a little testy about my time to.I'm on a schedule.
There have been many times that the "working folks" have had no respect for me or MY time.Just a little flip side opinion of the coin Addie.They always got the Bums Rush.

I'm bewildered that you would make such a statement in this day and age Addie. Now days there are Mr. Mom's out there that should also be pretty po'd with that kind of talk. Not to mention mom's like me who made a hard living taking care of other children in my home so I could raise my own.
Good grief.....

Good for you. I have at times just opened the door ever so slightly so I can tell my unwelcome visitor, "Sorry, I don't have time right now. I have to get ready for work. I will call you when I can sit and talk. They are still waiting for that phone call.

I wish I had the luxury of being a full time stay at home mom. But there were many times I had to get out there and get a job real quick. At the time there were plenty of factories in Chelsea, and I could go to any one of them and know I would get hired on the spot. And they knew I wouldn't be making a career of it. I hate factory work, but they paid the most. When you have a family, you do what you have to in order to put food on the table. My dream job would be working on a farm. Not too many farms in a big city.
