Job Mullings

January 30th, 2007 at 06:45 pm

My lunch date is all set for tomorrow with my former boss. He suggested the country club Smile which is always a nice treat!!

I am anxious to see what options are available...

Things have changed so much since my transition to working at home two years, re-evaluating, it makes sense to reconsider working again.

My dad's health continues to decline...COPD is no way to live...if you smoke, please consider quitting TODAY. If my dad goes, my moms financial situation is bleak...another reason for me to pump up my income now.

Since both of my eldest daughters are available/willing to help care for my parents now, it is more of an option to re-enter the workforce.

They are opening a new branch within about 10 minutes from my home (I live out in the country) the commute would be very short and easy.

And finally, long term goals for H and I are geared towards me working, and him notching up his wood business and eventually becoming self-employed.

The kids' business is doing great...but it really only needs one office worker for DD1 can run things while being here to keep an eye on nana and papa. She will also be here in the afternoon for DD3.

So...I will see what transpires during lunch tomorrow...and then start making decisions.

I never thought Id be doing this so soon...funny how life changes course on us...isnt it?

    I hope you are not offended if I go Holy on you, but if you leave it up to the Big Guy, he will tell you exactly what you are supposed to do! That saves a lot of stress on yourself! That is what happened with the library job, it was perfect and I thought I was a shoe in. Little did I know 40 other people would think so too! But it answered my immediate question of, "is this what I am supposed to be doing now?"

    No offense at all...and I always appreciate your advice Boo. I am going to wait and see what transpires...if nothing else, it will be fun to mull some new options!

    Same thing with me. Not to go "holy" on you either!LOL We were really needing some extra money. I'd been at home for 15 years and all my kids are in school now. I needed a least part time anyway. But, I wanted/needed a job that made me be available to my kids when they aren't in school. I prayed about it. I gave God my list of demands, so to speakWink Things like, I needed to be home in the evening. I needed to be able to take off work if they were sick. I needed to be able to leave early sometimes to go to my kid's sporting events in other towns. I really wanted to be home during the summer when the kids weren't in school. I wanted to be able to be able to still prepare decents meals for my family without depending on conveince foods. I didn't want to work so many hours that I was completely exhausted and not a good mom or wife.
    Anyway, that VERY day the perfect job fell into my lap! The principle at my daughter's elementary school asked if I'd be interested in job in the school library! Okay, this was too weird! A job that gave me the exact school hours that my kids have. I'm off for the summers and all school holidays. I work in an enviroment that always allows me to put my own children first. Meaning I can always take off work if my kid is sick or I need to leave early for a football game. Not to mention the fact that I get benefits like paid personal and sick days(using one today in fact. My DD is sick and I'm at home with her). Oh, and did I mention that I'm an AVID reader and library nerd? Honestly, I couldn't have found a more perfect jobSmile Okay, maybe it would be perfect if the pay was a little higher!LOL
    I guess what I'm saying is just pray about it and trust that the Lord has a plan for you! If this job falls through, maybe it wasn't meant to be??
