Hello There!

Hello there! I’m Terin, the neglectful owner of this blog. I promise that I’ve been gone for a really good reason1! Let me just start by saying that I have completely forgotten how to work WP. And why does it look so different???

Our May

Let’s get started, shall we? First of all: I quit Bank of America. I couldn’t be happier! I now work in the TD Bank Operations center.
Secondly: JJ graduated! He’s learned so much and I am VERY proud.
And yeah… That pretty much sums it all up.

Why I Quit After Six Years

Anyone who knows me, knows that I absolutely loved working for BofA. Then we relocated. I had a horrible manager and no option to transfer since I have to be in my new location for a year. I had no time to spend with my family. I was only getting one Saturday off a month and a lot of weeks I had to work six days. For me, I’m really big on family and being around for my children, so the working all the time was not working for me. I was so depressed. I even ended up in the hospital, and my doctor gave me some of the best advice. Quit my job.

Just so happened, I got out of the hospital in time for my interview with TD Bank. They were so impressed that I got an offer the same day. I can choose my own shift and I only have to work one Saturday every six weeks or so. I love my job. I love my coworkers. I don’t have headaches every day. It’s fabulous!

So that’s my life right now. I’m adjusting to the new job and enjoying my family.

Easter Sunday

This post is almost a week late, but I’ve been quite busy. I took the children back to my hometown for Easter Sunday. We celebrated with my parents and my sister came down, too. It was a great program at the church and great food1! Ivy found2 nine eggs. JJ found seven.

Oh What A Week!

This week has been crazy!!

It started with having to work six days because of my direct supervisor’s vacation. Then, there were the callouts that left me in charge of the teller line. On Thursday, I came home to a little boy with red, swollen eyes and a snotty, swollen nose! I ended up having to take Friday morning off to get him to a doctor. My lucky boy has a severe pollen allergy!1 He’s been prescribed Claritin, Flonase, and Zytec. Poor little thing can’t even go outside.

And then there is Ivy. It’s a new week, but she’s started it with projectile vomiting! I’m starting to believe that this little one has a milk allergy, since she only throws up milk. She has an appointment set for later in the month.

Cheers to my burnt chocolate chip pancakes and morning spent cleaning carpet… And it isn’t even 9AM yet.
