Life's Minor Adjustments
Sunday, September 21, 2008
After 7 years of being a stay at home mom, I will be starting a part time job in the next week or so.
I had always worked until I married my husband. It is the second marriage for both of us. He is the custodial parent for his two boys, who were ages 4 and 10 at the time we married.
Over the last 7 years I went from really loving being home, to feeling isolated (all my family lives in a neighboring state), and then to finally be comfortable with being home.
I liked making a daily task list, grocery shopping and cooking healthy meals for my family.
But, with the economy getting really scary and the price of gas and groceries going up, I just felt I needed to do this. The boys are older now so hopefully, they will pitch in and help around here some.
I freely admit, I am kind of a control freak, and am already worried about getting everything done here at home when I will be here less to do it. God bless those working women who do it all.
I am a little stressed about making sure I continue to stay on the workout schedule I am doing right now. I have already told my hubby that I don't want to give up any of that. I have worked so hard to get back in shape and be a healthier person. And I am going to do everything in my power to make sure I continue to be.
I really enjoy reading all of the Spark mails and posting to the boards every evening. And as a Community Team member I want to fulfill all my obligations. In other words, I don't want to let anyone down, myself included.
So, wish me luck.
And 3 big cheers for all those working mothers who make it look easy. You are my inspiration!
