Over the past few months, maybe longer, I've been contemplating going back to work part time again. I want to keep it part time because I still want to put some time into photography in my smugmug gallery and my online store at zazzle. But I feel I need something to keep active and get out of the house once in awhile. Something to bring in a little extra spending money and to just feel like I'm contributing something around here.
I know, I know being a stay at home mom is a job in itself but it doesn't pay for my lunch with an old friend or a trip to the casino with my gambling buddies (don't worry I go maybe once a year!). I know I shouldn't feel guilty, but I do. My husband was and still is OK with the decision I had made to quit. But it's time to get back into the working world.
I've applied for a few jobs over the past few months. I've been being kind of picky because I want something that fits in with my kids schedule and I do not want retail again. I've gone on a couple interviews and been completely disappointed when two of the jobs I thought would be perfect for me didn't work out.
I guess those two just weren't meant to be because today I was offered the job I applied for at our local library. It's perfect. Only a few minutes from home, a couple hours a day, no weekends and best of all NO RETAIL.
I start tomorrow.
I can't wait!
