Thank goodness indeed. It was an interesting week for me. Matt was out of town on business and I was home with the munchkins. I am very grateful that he was able to work as much as he did (70 hours). I also put in some hours with the help of Joann, a dear friend. She took on both of my monkeys as needy and energetic as they can be.
So, Matt and I had a conversation about finances and my general well being, and yes, they are related. I would like to be a full-time SAHM who also brings in some dinero. I would LOVE to turn some of my hobbies into income generators. He has more faith in my than I have in myself. He knows what I am capable of. So, he has decided to (finally) take over all of the bills and to "bankroll" an endeavor once I come up with a sound plan and a budget. Easier said than done!
I have several ideas, but most of them revolve around my affair with gymboree and all the cuteness they have. I have found a group of equally obsessed mamas at gymboplace. Talk about needing a 12-step program now? So anyway, there is a huge demand for "M2M" or Made to Match products. I see a lot of hair bows and some jewelry ... but I am good at things like sewing and paper crafts so my idea is scrapbook pages, handbags, grocery bags, etc. I am going to have to do a little research first ... but it seems viable to me. I'll keep you guys posted!!
