Back to reality!
Where have I been? I haven't been online much these past few days, therefore not posting much. I've been super busy getting back to "real" life - I got a job!
Things in our life are pretty hectic and uncertain (nothing bad though, no worries), so while we sit around and figure out what life is going to hand us, I decided it was time to do something productive for the family. I really want to go to school now that I have some ideas of what I want to do "when I grow up," but even that is turning out to be very difficult for several crazy reasons. In the mean time, I found a part-time position at a bank, and I'm excited to rejoin the adult world! I turned in an application and resume two weeks ago, was interviewed last Tuesday, got hired last Friday, and they told me that they would put me up in a hotel for the next two weeks for training, starting Monday (last week)! All of this happened super quick, needless to say, but the good things in my life always tend to be that way, so I have high hopes :) The whole two-week-hotel-stay wasn't going to work for us, especially with two days' notice, so I've been doing the two hour each way trek all last week and will finish up this week.
I'm really excited to be able to play dress up again, to have responsibilities outside of the home, to meet new people (I still don't know many people around here), and to be helping my family out financially. But I do admit - it has been hard on me. I loved the stay-at-home-mom/wife life I've been blessed with these past four years, and I feel a little guilty leaving the home, and a longing to do the little things that I will be too busy with. I love being an independent woman as well, being outside of the home and being my own person. I suppose I have to relearn how to balance my life :)
