A New Job
After weeks of considering it, I've decided that the best thing for our family is for me to find a job outside of the home. I'm closing up the home daycare and have already alerted the parents that I was actively looking. I had my initial interview for tomorrow morning, but I had a call this morning from another place and they wanted to interview me today. It was my first interview in 9 years since I've been a stay at home mom for awhile. I ended up landing the job, much to my surprise. I'm thrilled.
It's close by and not an hour away like other typical positions I've applied for, it also seems to be a very comfortable place to work. Not a place that would make one feel very awkward. I think it will be a good fit for me in the end.
Financially and mentally, I think this will be the best decision for us. I've given my daycare parents a 2 week notice and I start my new job on the 29th. Best part is, are that the hours are consistent, day time hours. I'll be done by 5pm every single night, and I'll have my Saturday's off. I'm still accepting 2 of my daycare kids on Saturday's during the summer, but once Fall comes around, I have no intentions of sticking with the Saturday care. Life will be way too busy then.
I'm looking forward to this new chapter in our lives though!
