It is funny how sometimes when you have more time on your hands you can get less done. So, confession time...

I have not been too busy to update my blog. I just haven't.

Call me a sinner. Call me lazy. Call me whatever you want! This last month I started my new job. I haven't been getting quite as many hours as I would like, however, I think the hours I have gotten could potentially end up being a blessing. For this next month, I only work in the mornings from 6-9 am. This is good for two reasons:

1. It forces to me to get out of bed at a decent hour. Actually an insanely early hour if we are being literal, but nonetheless I'm not sleeping the day away.

2. It gives me the opportunity to easily apply to other full time jobs and work a normal 9-5 day at another job and make millions. Literally. That psychology degree opens me up to some HIGH PAYING jobs, just fyi. Okay so I'm lying, but realistically this will keep my busy and allow me to live more comfortably.

And for those of you wondering, I actually really have been loving my job. The first week I wasn't sure how I would like it, but I look forward to the time I get to spend with my girls. They all have profound mental retardation/hypothyroidism and are so low functioning that they cannot talk, but it's been a rewarding time learning how to communicate with them. It just goes to show that you don't have to talk to someone to really get to know them and understand them. I don't know how appropriate this analogy is, but it kind of reminds me of my old dog Holly. She obviously never talked, but I still felt like she had a cute little personality and spoke in sentences to me sometimes. My girls are the cutest with such sweet personalities and I have gotten to the point where I often know what they are thinking even though they can't say it. I wish I could disclose more, but I actually am really not supposed to talk about my job for confidentiality purposes. We'll see how well I do with that.

So since I work from 6-9 am, you may or may not be wondering what I do the rest of the day. Well, for one, I apply to like 20 full time jobs a day for a few hours each day. But I also have lots more time to read for pleasure, study my scriptures, go to the temple, visit with friends, exercise, clean, interview for jobs, and sing. I also have taken the necessary steps to start volunteering in Mother/Baby at the Hospital nearby, which is going to straight up awesome. So I am filling my time, but why blogging has not been on the list, I do not know.

Hence the update.


  1. Megan! Keep updating your blog! I love hearing how you are doing and what you are up to! Your new job sounds fantastic. We are coming down to Utah this month and I better see your face!

  2. So. What exactly is mother/baby ? I don't know why I'm asking. I'm definitely interested , but I do work full time and will be having my own infant shortly. So maybe I'm insane for being interested.
