I am really trying not to stress out! We’ve been on the hunt for a part-time nanny/babysitter to replace my mom and so far, nothing!!. At first we thought it might be a no-brainer, there are so many college students out for summer and I thought that would be a good place to start. Turns out it’s tougher than I thought to find someone willing to come over every morning. Usually something like this would send me into a state of worry and hyper-analyzing and frantically networking but I’m trying to stay laid back….for once!:) Thankfully my mom won’t leave us hanging and just quit (she better not anyway)! Lol.:) Still, I want to respect her and find someone relatively fast so that’s what I’ve been busy doing. Checking out websites, posting college job lists, asking friends, etc. We have a few interviews lined up so at least there is potential, we’ll just have to see. In a way I feel like my expectations are unrealistic: I want someone with good morals, young enough to keep up with the boys, old enough to be responsible for 3 little ones and mature enough to set a good example. I need Alice from the Brady Bunch!:) I know all things are possible when you place it in God’s hands though and so that’s why I’m trying to let go of my stress. If I allow myself to worry, that’s not fully trusting in what the Lord can do!
I am late for work with my blogging so I better go but I’ll be back with a Marathon update!! The big event is this weekend already, all the training will come down to Sunday morning and 13.1 miles! I am nervous but excited too. By the way, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all the wonderful mommies out there! God Bless you!
