1) fact: i was a teacher for years. after ben was born, i was lucky enough to have a principal that kept me employed part-time (almost unheard of in my profession).
fact: my family has a business that employs the majority of us. last year, due to the growth of the business (and the family), i left the classroom for a different part-time gig helping out my sister.
fact: my little sister runs the office. she is really good at what she does. she is also really pregnant. she has done her best to prepare me for her departure, but here we are, two days into her maternity leave and i am in the weeds, y'all. used to working with kids, i am a smidge out of my element in the world of excel documents and quickbooks. i get frustrated a lot. and when i get frustrated, i cry. it's not cute.
favor: due to the impending arrival of my precious niece, my work schedule has changed. my greatest hits will more than likely move to fridays, i think. so hang with me, friends. and pray that i get better at my job. fast. because things, they are a-changin'.
2) fact: my precious niece, previously mentioned, is scheduled to arrive into this world on monday afternoon.
favor: if you can, please send my sister, her husband and baby addy some good vibrations, happy thoughts, prayers, etc. on monday. we are all beside ourselves with excitement to meet our little angel.
