Hey, remember me? The gal who went totally missing from blogland all last week? I don't even know what happened. Time just went flying by and I couldn't find the time (or motivation) to sit down at the computer and blog at all. Don't worry- you didn't miss too much. Last week was fairly uneventful until FRIDAY because. . . drumroll, please.
I got a job! Yes, you read that correctly and I am just thrilled! It's a very part-time role right now that I will be able to do mostly from home which completely blows my mind. When I left my job at the Bengals I'd hoped that eventually something part-time would work out somewhere. I'd honestly been browsing part-time positions or jobs that I could do remotely but it never seemed like I was qualified or that it would work for me whenever I'd see a job posting. Until this gig came along. I saw the posting, immediately applied and said my prayers that this was meant to be.
After a casual interview at an adorable coffee shop, I was offered the job a couple days later and have already done a few hours of training. I don't need to go into all the details right now but I'll essentially be an assistant for someone and their business. Handling emails and some customer service type of matters to start, and then potentially growing the role into other things as I learn the ropes and take on more.
I seriously can't put into words how excited I am for this opportunity. Since leaving my full-time job there have been SO many days I doubted my decision, or worried about what the future would hold for me and my family. While we were financially prepared for me not to work, it wasn't initially what we had in mind just a few short months ago. And other than the financial side of things, I was having trouble feeling like I was "just" a stay-at-home-mom. I knew I wanted to continue to use my talents and abilities and I knew something would work out one day- I just didn't know when.
So I'll be working from home for the first time this week, just a handful of hours but I cannot wait to get started. I have no doubts that this is where I'm supposed to be right now :) Happy, Happy Monday!
