So yeah, I know, this is my first blog post. I’m supposed to attempt to set the tone for the whole blog based on this post, but honestly, I’m not really sure what that’s gonna be.
Instead, let me introduce myself;
“Hi, I’m Rivka!”
I am a 32-year-old mom of 3. I’ve been married for almost 16 years. I have a big black cane corso. I live in Israel.
I work in a daycare center, caring for 9, 1.5-2-year-olds, for 9 hours a day. After work, I come home, spend some time with my kids and get them ready for bed. Afterward, (if I have the energy) I hang out for a bit with my husband and get ready for bed.
I hardly ever socialize. My house is usually pretty cluttered and messy, but I don’t have the time or energy to do much about it. My physical health has been better.
Bet you’re like, super motivated to subscribe to my blog, follow all my social media, and really get to know me right?
Well, this is where things get interesting. Cause just about everything up there is about to change.
I am currently 38 weeks pregnant with Weinstein #4! I’m on maternity leave from my job, (which I love- my work kids are fabulous but exhausting!) and I haven’t yet decided if I will return when its over. I am also preparing to move. We may not move to a bigger house, but we will definitely be looking for one with an extra room. (cause 4 kids in 1 bedroom just ain’t gonna cut it)
So here are my goals for the next few months;
- Minimize our stuff: I only want to pack what we need in the new place- no point in bringing tons of junk into a new home!
- Figure out job: I want a job that will allow me to spend more time with my family, take up less of my energy, and allow me a bit more freedom and flexibility in life. (it wouldn’t hurt if it paid better too- daycare employees get paid peanuts for the work they do)
- Get back on a schedule that lets me get stuff done: I’ve fallen into a pattern of doing what I need to do at the last minute (if at all) and I want to regain some free time to;
- Re-discover old hobbies: I used to run, cook, create cool DIY art, read, write… I have slowly lost track of everything I used to do that brought joy to my life and traded it in for work and housekeeping. So uncool.
Wanna see how I’m gonna do all that?
Hah! I thought so!
