that is our indoor sandbox-otherwise known as a cookie sheet wrapped in tin foil (to try to catch spillage) filled with rice and small pasta. keeps him busy for a long time! I was doing it in one of those deep dish bucket things but he needed more room to move so i upgraded it, because "cars not fit mom" a word of caution though-you definately need to vaccuum after!
do you have any rainy day ideas? we are definately tired of being stuck in the house!
in other news...i need a new job. i don't often write about it here for a few reasons. i don't really have anything good to say, and i'm afraid to post other peoples health information. I've worked on the same floor for four years, every year it has gotten worse. More is being expected of us, paperwork and responsibilty. the stress and pressure is insane. It isn't being managed well, or rather i think our managers have pretty much had all their power taken away, the hospital is making decisions that noone is allowed any say on. all the nurses on our floor are talking about leaving, i'm not sure what i want to do next, and the community hospital i work at per diem is merging with the large hospital i have a postion at, so i don't want to make a move until it all goes through because then i could keep my seniority and benefits. i'm not making a move just yet, but i know it will be happening. i am just willing to wait until the right thing comes along, and i'm hoping the universe will send it to me.
