Made it through training........

I completed two weeks of training for my new job and on Monday I head to the branch I will be working at. I really do like what I am doing, but it is still an adjustment getting used to my time not being my time anymore. I know we need two incomes to save for a family (since we prefer to have me home with our children when we are blessed with them), but I am so missing being able to do what I want, when I want. It really is ironic actually. I searched and searched for a job because 1.) we needed the money for savings, and 2.) I was starting to climb the walls being without human contact all day for hours on end, and 3.) I had myself believing that since I was not working, or just working part-time here and there I would be more productive at home, I would get creative with saving and budgeting and running a household, and I would find a way to earn money doing things I really really love, like crafts. Fact is, having all the time in the world made me complacent and lazy. Not good.

So, finding this job was a blessing, especially considering the fact that this job was basically just handed to me by virtue of being Kevin's wife. Still, I have never adjusted well to change, and I am finding it a big adjustment going back to full-time work after almost three years. I miss Bailey, I miss my freedom, I miss getting sleep!!! :-) But, adulthood is about doing what you gotta do, ya know....

I can soooo relate! I prayed and prayed for a teaching job (because I, too, was going stir crazy at home all day) and then I missed everything about "home" all day long for the first couple of months! The good news...it gets better...and, for me, I became more productive at home once I got a job...sounds wierd--but it's true!
