Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

First and foremost, no I am not pregnant. I know how some of you (I shan't name names) are always waiting for that PREGNANCY ANNOUNCEMENT post. No such luck.

However, life here at our house, is about to change.

Are you ready???

I got a full-time job. 

I received the official phone call yesterday, and lemme just say, I am freaking out! I applied a few weeks ago, and I was beginning to think I would never find out. But just like that, I am now a FULL-TIME EMPLOYEE. 

I will be working at a high school, as a support secretary. My hours are school hours, so I can still drop-off and pick up the kids from school, and my schedule throughout the year will mirror the kids. Honestly, I can't think of a better schedule.

But I am nervous about the changes. I haven't worked full-time in 9 years, so I know the adjustment will be big. Will I do it well? Will I crumble like a big baby? I see so many women who work and raise a family and they do it well.....I just pray I can fall into that category. 

I am very thankful for this opportunity.  Thank you Lord, and thank you Rico for supporting me!

I'm not sure when I begin, but I will let you know! 

But in the words of David Bowie, Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes.

Change is good.

You can totally do it! I've learned that there are some things (with regards to housework) that have to wait until after 8pm or tomorrow. It also makes my limited time with the kids even more special. Excited for you!
