....I am sad to announce that today was my last day as a scrapbook and paper-Ed instructor for Michael's Craft Store. As you know, I am a full time mom of two beautiful daughters and a full time employee of the City of Biloxi. I feel like I have been slacking in my duty as a mom and decided that my time is much better spent with my girls during my time off from my full time job. There comes a time when some things just aren't worth putting your effort into and that is when it is time to let those things go so, that is what I have done. My girls are growing up too fast and I feel like I am missing out on their childhood. As you probably know, I work night shift. For those of you that work night shift, you know how precious time really is and how it feels like you live a totally separate life from the rest of the world. With that being said, I have come to realize that the time with my girls is very precious. I want to spend as much time as I can with them. It hurts my heart every time Alexis says to me, "Mom, do you HAVE to go to work? Can't you just stay home with me?" Just recently she told me, "Mom, I like sleeping next to you. I miss you when you are not here." I felt like my heart was being ripped out of my chest. Anyway, I will miss my "hobby job" as scrapbooking instructor but I will no longer miss time with my girls.
