The Fish is Coming with ME

Just like that, I took my ergonomic keyboard in a Jerry Maguire taking the goldfish type scene and exited the corporate world on Tuesday.
I was and am scared.  We are on a budget and we have never in our FIVE years of marriage made a  budget work and it hasn't been that big of a deal but we kind of need to like balance a check book now.            So I have been thinking of ways to economize and telling me not to get Starbucks doesn't make sense as I don't drink coffee.  I made a budget and it looks pretty hard so that is my one big concern.  Other than the whole ruining my career and being poor, I am pretty excited.

I took LO to Jen's house on Wednesday and spent the day doing fun inexpensive stuff.  I got a $19.99 foot massage that one of my fancy friends recommended.  I am pretty sure that massage parlor is how Kerri Walsh got pink-eye.  Then I went to see Queen of Versailles which is my type of movie and caught a drink with a friend.  It was a great day and I embarked on the journey to spend EVERY single day with my darling baby.  I took it as a great sign when she told me that she would rather be with Jen than me.  Awesome.  Then she wanted to know what happened to the nanny.

So we spent our first SAHM day going to the circus on a train with Jen and Jackson.  I found some cheap circus tickets which kept my budget in check and I didn't feel guilty if LO had her BACK TO the PERFORMERS FOR 75% of the show.  It was quite the adventure and I have never met a more agreeable kid than Jackson.  He DID everything he was asked and NEVER cried.  He got tired and just went to sleep while sitting.  There was no throwing one's self onto the ground while screaming for an item that is impossible to obtain on a moving train or intentionally rubbing one's face on the bathroom wall.

Come on Jackson, let's slowly ease ourselves onto the tracks.
 Now look at the adults and smirk.
After you get in trouble, you take a tiny step forward and then pretend you are going to jump onto the tracks at any second.
That nugget was having none of her games and behaved the ENTIRE time.  He is lucky that I didn't take a nibble off his cheeks or arms.  I will also understand when we NEVER hear from them for another play date.
