Well, actually 9:30-5:30 M-F with a hour for lunch (that I get PAID for). I was offered the job that I interviewed for on Friday and I start tomorrow. I feel SO blessed. The way the economy is right now, there are so many people who are being laid off and can’t find a job anywhere. Not only do I now HAVE a job, but its appearing to be one of the best opportunities I’ve ever had. I am making more money than ever, get every bank and court holiday off, 3 weeks vacation and 6 days of sick leave a year! Sometimes I am really amazed at some of the things God allows for me. Let’s hope I still feel this way tomorrow after my first day! Believe it or not, I do not have that overwhelming, pit of the stomach, nervous feeling I usually have the night before starting a new job. I am actually excited and intrigued! The attorney I will work for is a divorce/family law attorney. MUCH more exciting than business or environmental law (what the law firm I worked for before specialized in). I will probably have some funny stories to share. My sister is a criminal attorney and I love hearing about some of the cases she is working on.
Mikey will be with Mike’s Mom while I work and Braeden will attend after-school care at his school. Mike gets off at 4pm most days so he will be able to get the boys home and well into the evening routine…..and I will walk in each night with fresh flowers on the table, a delicious meal in the oven, a glass of wine and hot bubble bath waiting for me…..YA RIGHT! More like pay backs for all the times Mike came home to NO dinner and a wife who just can not cook.
We thought about putting Mikey in an all-day preschool, but just don’t think he is ready. A half-day preschool would mean Mike’s Mom would have to pick him up each day and that may be hard with her now watching Sayelor’s baby sister too. Mikey and Sayelor have also become inseparable. Its actually funny because as well as the two played together occasionally, they would compete for Mike’s Mom’s attention and therefore struggled to get along. They LOVE each other now, follow each other around and are lost when the other is not there. This makes me SO happy! Its nice to know Mikey is not only in PERFECT care, but also has a buddy his age to play with- even if she does wear Dora pull-ups instead of Diego!
Wish me luck tomorrow.
