About a month ago, they started laying off people rapidly. They laid almost everyone of importance off. I started getting nervous, wondering what was going to happen to me. I was only working there from 9 am to 4 pm and it was in the next little town from ours. I wasn't having to drive into the big city everyday fighting rush hour traffic. That was huge to me.
Last week, someone called and told me to "google" one of the owners of my company. I wish I never had. When I typed his name into google, he came up as a guy with a horrible history of criminal activity. Criminal activity that seriously scared me. I showed the information to my husband and we decided that night that I was quitting the next morning. And, that's exactly what I did. I quietly quit and let them tell the few remaining employees that I had a family emergency.
It was one of the most stressful decisions I've had to make but I have strong morals and I'm not compromising those morals, especially for part-time work. I didn't make enough to have to work with a renowned criminal. Now, I don't even know if I should put the job on my resume because I was only there six months and don't even know who to list as a reference.
Mr. H and I decided I'll stay home with the boys this summer. So far, I've had fun making them breakfast and lunch everyday, swimming, running errands with them and just getting to hang out. That's something that I never really got to do while working.
So far, we've tried a few new things:
We tried making homemade donuts. All we needed was vegetable oil and some canned biscuits.
We took a bottle lid from a 20 oz. Coke and pressed the donut holes out of the biscuit.
We fried them until golden brown, then topped them with glaze. The glaze was just 1/2 cup of granulated sugar and enough milk to make a slightly thick glaze.
The boys loved them!
We also made a dinner that I used to eat as a kid. Shake and Bake chicken. My boys had never had Shake and Bake. We had some chicken drumsticks and I thought the kids would love it.
They absolutely ate it up! The Shake and Bake was a success!!! Guess that's why it's been around since I was a kid.
This past weekend my brother-in-law brought his new puppies over for the boys to see.
