My Quest to be a SAHM

As most of you know, I am still teaching High School Econ.  I actually love my job, but I would rather be home with Maddie, so I am trying to find ways to bring in additional money that will allow me to transition to being a SAHM.  If you've been to my blog lately, you may have noticed a listing of articles on the right sidebar.  I am working on writing for a few websites to see if I can eventually bring in enough money to work from home.  The writing I am doing right now isn't very lucrative, but I'm hoping to one day do some higher paying freelance work.  

Anyway, if you ever want to click on any of my articles, link to some of them from your website or forward the link to any of your friends, I would very much appreciate it.  On some of them I get paid per unique visitor, and on others I get paid on ad clicks.

Seriously... is this the cutest picture or what?

Maddie's first trip

Ok, I knew it had been awhile since I last posted, but I didn't realize it has been over a month and a half! Bad Tammy!

The funny thing is, I have had more things to blog about than ever, but less time. Go figure.

In January we took a quick trip to California so Maddie could meet her Grandpa. (To my California family and friends that I did not contact while I was there, I am very sorry but it really was a quick trip and the main reason was so Maddie could meet her Grandpa Brown who wasn't able to come out for her blessing. We should be coming back out in the next few months.)

"I can show you the world..."

"They're cousins!  Identical cousin all the way.."

Maddie Loves California

Our first plane flight ended up pretty uneventful even though Maddie had her first cold at the same time.  She loves vibration and movement, so she pretty much slept both ways. We made the obligatory trip to Disneyland while we were there.  She loved it so much, she slept the entire day.  It seemed the louder it got, the harder she slept.
