Yes it’s official, I am going back to work on Monday in the “real world”. I tell you working virtually and being able to say home with my boys and daughter has been a fantastic privilege. I will miss the great times but they are getting older and I am too. It’s time for me to go out and do what I do best …. mingling with people in a real world working environment. Don’t get me wrong, my business will still stay strong and my clients needs will be met but I will be working outside of the home as a Go Wireless sales rep during the daytime hours.
We are not certain what we will do with the children as of yet, since hubs is home he will stay with them until he finds his job and at that time we will determine if we want someone to babysit at our home or place them in daycare. For now I am just feeling all the normal emotions of a Mom who has been home full time for three years and now is heading back into the working world.
After I had the interview today with the manager, which I might add seems like a great person to work for, I felt excitement and then it hit me …. reality! I will be working full time and I start MONDAY .. so I have a few days to enjoy my children before working a nine to fiver again! I guess it’s normal to be having mixed emotions about my decision to return to work, and that just shows I am human.
Being a Mom is a huge part of my life and I have let it consume my life for the past three years, not in a bad way. I have enjoyed the past three years between giving birth to my first born son who turned three and my second born son who turned one I feel it’s time for Mommy to go back to work again. Luckily I have a choice and so this is a decision based on not only what’s best for our family but for myself as well. The fact that I am not being forced back into the work force makes this transition a lot easier.
Looking forward to blogging, tweeting and interacting on Facebook with you all but at less of a frequency because after working all day, I will be spending time with my family and then be on late nights working on clients projects.
