As of 2:45 this afternoon, my life has changed big time.
I accepted a full time job.
My first full time job since my late 20's.
I've been a SAHM for many years now and although I've had a variety of part time jobs over the years, being a mom was always my priority.
I'm not gonna lie, being a mom is still my priority, but the kids have all flown the nest.
And so, I'm back in the work force!
Looking for work after years of being a SAHM and working part time jobs is ROUGH.
It really made me feel like crap when I would apply for jobs that I KNOW I can do and then I don't even get a call.
Not even a single peep.
Then when I did get calls, I would find myself interviewing with a 20 year old kid.
It was not very much fun.
I would look at most jobs and think "I could definitely do that job" but I don't know how to prove that I can do that job. On paper I am not very impressive.
Anyway, someone hired me and I said yes.
And next time I am looking for a job, I will have something at least a little more impressive on my resume.
But hopefully I will love this job and they will love me and I won't be looking for anything anytime soon.
Now I'm trying to come to grips with the idea that I will soon be wearing "business casual" every day and leaving the house by 7:30 a.m.
P.S. Who am I kidding? OF COURSE they will love me. Ha!
