Starting the week of January 18th, I am cutting down my work week from 5 days a week to 3 days a week. Pablo got a new job that he'll be starting that week and it's a day job...WOOHOO!!!

How it works now is my mom watches the kids all day Monday (Pablo's only day shift) and Pablo watches them Tuesday-Friday. Because Pablo will be working days, and we don't want to put the kids in daycare, I'll work Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. This means that I'll stay home with the kids Monday and Friday, my mom will watch them Tuesday and Thursday and Pablo will work from home on Wednesday. Let's hope this works...

My parents go away to Puerto Vallarta every winter for 6 weeks (this year they leave Jan 31st). With Pablo working days, it looks like I'll be off work for the 6 weeks that my parents are gone so that I can take care of the kids.

AND...Pablo is having yet another surgery January 12th... Pablo got a call - the surgeon postponed the surgery of course...


  1. That sounds great--like a good solution for everyone.

  2. I can't wait to go down to 3 days/week! It's just too exhausting the way things are now and I think all these changes are just what all four of us need!

  3. Sounds like a good change for you all!
