Small Success Thursday -

Happy Thursday.
Good news, I start on a new contract/project on Monday. I am going back to the company I was with until last June. Drawbacks is that the pay rate is lower and it is in the opposite direction of DS's school. But it is work at a place where I have some friends. The nature of the work will be a combination of Project management and technical (upgrading servers). I will be driving 50 miles each morning as I take DS to school and then turn around and go to work. But it will only be for about 2 months.

Meanwhile, my grandson was under the weather and his babysitter's daughter has been sick, so Grandma is taking him for the week. At 15 months and very agile, he was a whirling dervish. He needs constant supervision. I had such plans to clean, organize and sew. Ha! forget that, unless re-organizing means putting the plastic wear or cans he pulled out of the cabinets he has access to. LOL! But I remember having young children who were unable to go to daycare or sitters and yet Hubby and I both needed to go to work. I have the opportunity to help out, so I am pushing the frustration out of my mind. He was certainly feeling much better yesterday than Mon or Tues.

I did remember to go to the BMV and get the booklet for my 15 YO to study to take his written exam in a few weeks. Hopefully this job will give us the $$ to buy an appropriate vehicle for him to drive himself to and from school when he turns 16 in September.

Linking up with Catholic Mom.

Glad you have a project coming up and hope a permanent one comes soon! I remember the whirling-dervish years...there's a reason parents are usually young! Hope the little guy feels better soon!

15 months is hard no matter how old you are when you care for him. They get into everything. Hope life gets a bit easier, and thanks for being part of Small Success Thursday!
