Congratulations to me for FINALLY getting a job! Granted, it’s a Part-Time, On Call job, but it’s a start! I start my training on Wednesday and I’m part excited, part nervous. How amazing will it be to be part of the work force again? To be around grown ups, to make a little bit of money, and to not have to watch Barney all frikin day long! Sounds to good to be true. But, it’s still work, so I’m sure it won’t be all great all the time. I’m going to miss Carter while I’m working, but I know it’s good for the two of us to have a break from each other.
On another note, I’m still “under construction”. Me, Q, and the kids have been bike riding around the neighborhood just about every night and we have been working out more, trying to get in shape. I feel much better since I’m more active. It’s hard work, but so worth it. Hopefully I can stay active while having a job and trying to do school work and still trying to take care of my domestic duties. I’m so over school right now. My mind is exhausted and I’m only halfway through the teaching program. At one point I was thinking about going on to get a Phd…..I’m not sure what the hell I was thinking (I guess I wasn’t thinking at all). I’m just ready to be an actual grown up. I’m ready to have a career job, be settled, and have a hobby to fill my time (instead of homework). I’m ready to work on my next books and work to try to get M is For Mom, Not Maid picked up by a publisher. I was at Barnes & Noble with Carter yesterday and as I browsed the book shelves I thought about how great it would be to see my book on those shelves. Even if it happened to be the clearance shelves, I would still be excited about it. What a great accomplishment that would be!
As I approach 30, (on August 12th)
I hope that things will work out great for me and my family. I’m thinking my 30’s will be the best part of my life, even though I’ll be so sad to see my 20’s go. I’m hoping to be successful, happy, healthy, and to be able to enjoy time with my family and friends. Hopefully, this positive, happy attitude can stay around for a while. =)
–until next time (which is hopefully sooner than my usual updates)
