First Day

I feel like it's the first day of school. I'm nervous and anxious, excited and eager! My mind races and soon I'm daydreaming.

Why?

Today is my first day back to work, in an office. I have worked for the past 9 yrs..8 yrs at home. I recently took a new position that requires me to go back to work in the office. Most would say I was crazy to give up working at home. HAHA. If they had worked for the company I did, I doubt they would feel that way. I loved working a home. I loved it. But it was no longer fun. It was miserable. So miserable that I often hated my job. NOBODY should have to work a job that they hate. I prayed every morning when I sat at my desk. It helped.. but I still hated my job.

I worked at home so I could still be a MOM to my kids. It was great. My kids are 15, 18 and 21...not hardly babies. My husband is home more now. I know, but we were both WORKING at home. People often have the image that if I work from home that I don't actually work.. but someone get a check put in my account. HAHA!~ It's work... just like if I were to go to the office, just my desk is at home.

My old job I worked long hours for measly pay. Often I was still working and my husband was cooking supper. Now I will have set hours. I can PLAN things!

I am looking forward to working with people again, people I know and worked with before. I was feeling pretty lonely at home. I look forward to starting a new career. I don't like change.. but I do like learning.

I am sure there will be an adjustment period... everyone will have to find their place ... it will all be fine. I had God's push and blessing to take this new job.. I'll have to tell you about it one day. For right now, I know this is where I am supposed to be!
