Today is the start to a new life

Yesterday was a very bittersweet day. It was my last day at a place that I held employment for the last six years. It was going to become a financial burden for me to continue to work there because of new company policy changes in 2012.

But what makes it exciting, new and a little bit scary, is that my husband and I made the decision for me to stay at home with our two girls. !!!! I'm so lucky and so blessed.

What is so bittersweet about the whole thing is that I liked what I did. We covered the local news media in cities I lived in and I was good at what I did and enjoyed doing it. I loved my 'break' and the adult interaction and friendships. The other bittersweet thing is we had to say 'see ya soon' to our day care provider. I've written about her before and how much she brought to our girls' lives and to ours. She taught them things I could never (Spanish) and provided a loving and nurturing environment.

As a send off for employees, our crew makes a newspaper cover and here's what mine looks like. The articles are hilarious and the 'cherry thunder' air freshener smells awful and has been an inside joke.

Note: Upper right side, "Irish Twins blog takes off, Mom in discussions with TV network." Next Kelle Hampton?! ;)


  1. Thank you, Jodie. Means so much to me. It's been quite a whirlwind of emotions.

  2. Must be super hard to leave, but enjoy the special time you will have with the girls. You will never have this time back again!

  3. I wanted to let you know I awarded you the Versatile Blogger Award! (Kind of a chain letter for bloggers.)

    Happy New Year!


  4. One door closes, another opens. I wish you all the best in 2012, with continued success and every ounce of happiness this world has to offer.

    The sky is the limit, and I know you will find many ways to fulfill your days, and to sneak in your adult moments. xoxo

  5. Thank you all for your kind words. Really meant so much to me!!

    And thank you, Jodie!!!! You just made my day!!!!!!!!!! Year?! :)
