Working Girl

Well, it's been just over a year and a half since I quit my part time job.  At the time it was what I needed.  I was sick of it.  I had things to tend to at home and with family.  I just needed the break. 

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!
