Welcome to Teves, Jewish Mamas! - Page 4

post #61 of 69
B"H, I hope that all is well.

Tonight, our shul had an engagement dinner. And I really ate too many sweets. But those brownies, with the icing, continued to call my name. Everything was so yummy.

I am looking forward to the wedding. Lately, it seems that it has been one shiva after another, and so much sadness.

I am so thankful for the opportunity to attend a wedding, or any happy event at this time.

I feel like it has been a lot of shiva's here, too.

I was saddened to realize that I won't be able to go to the bris, I agreed a month ago to cover a friend's shift at work. (saddened to realize? I think I need some sleep. that sounds crazy dorky and formal lol) (thank goodness she sent an email to the bosses reminding them (and me!) I'll find a way to send along a gift though, and congratulate them when I see them, and ask if they need help with anything. Still, I would have liked to go.

I have to share. I am now a certified post-partum doula!!! I'm very excited.
I feel hugely triumphant, because I feel like I'm making tangible steps on my path, and because I am building my career on my terms. After deciding not to go through with the traditional college route, I have a lot of failure/not good enough issues, so to be moving forward, be in a place to start my own business, and again, doing it my way, on my terms, I feel so triumphant. I know that there is a lot of buckling down I need to do to get my post partum doula business started, however, I'm just so psyched right now!

b'shaa tova, mamas.

Mazl tov!

Deciding to do some serious decluttering. I think it will be a healthy choice for us. However, that said, it's hard to work when it's so cold. The cold just seeps into the house - brrr. Right now it's 5 outside.

Mazel Tov Caroline!

Maybe you could offer an hour or two of your services as part of the baby gift to your friends who just had the baby boy? Besides being a nice thing to do for the family, it's free publicity! (and possibly your first job if they decide to hire you for more hours than you gift them with.)
