Daycare dilemna - solved!

Today, Lauren spent 2 hours at the new daycare center, Baby Hugs. All in all she did really well. She did cry but was able to calm down and be soothed by the caregivers. When I picked her up she was outside swinging with some of the other children and was quite happy. They said she did great and she was really happy when i got her home. Such a relief!

I don't need her to be in care much until I start my internship at Monroe High in November. I'm getting my master's in school counseling and will have to complete 600 hours over the course of the next year. So, Lauren will not ever be in daycare more than about 20 hours a week (this last paragraph is meant to relieve any Mommy guilt I always have about having other people care for my child).

During the two hours she was away, I eased the knot in my stomach by vacuuming and shampooing the inside of my car. One of our local car-washes, Mack's, has the best equipment in town. I had a pleasant exchange with Mack after the machine got jammed with quarters (mine) and wouldn't work. He appeared at first, to be a crusty ol' man but was such a sweetheart. He got the machine working, loaded me up with quarters and thanked me for letting him know that the machine wasn't working - rather than going away mad and not returning.

It's been a good day - got lots done at home, too and can't wait for LoLo to wake up so that we can spend some more time together.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Nowadays, I feel good, I begin to get real money.
It's all about how to select a correct partner who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
