The Search is OVER!

I feel like I should be thanking the Academy . . . or singing “Happy Happy Joy Joy,” or something . . .

I am pleased (ecstatic, overwhelmingly relieved, doing cartwheels, dancing the touchdown dance) to report that I have FINALLY found a new day care provider for my baby boy!!

This means that I can actually GET UP at 6:30 in the morning instead of having to be out of the house by 6:30 in the morning.

{Sing song-y} Aannnnndddd . . .

This means that we’ll be done eating dinner at 6:30 in the evening instead of just getting home.

{Big sigh}

This, however, in no way means that I am “truly” happy. I love and adore my baby’s current day care provider. If there was any way to make it work, I’d have done it. But I can drive from Sacramento to Reno and back in less time that it takes me to drive the baby to her house (then to work; then to her house) and back home. My marriage was suffering. I hardly saw Jake. And I was deliriously sleep deprived.

The new provider should work out quite nicely. She lives one block from where Jake currently goes to school, which is a six-minute jaunt from our house. Not a bad deal.

I will go to sleep tonight with one less weight bearing down on my shoulders.
