I'm wrapping up week four of the new job-career lifestyle, and I have to say...
I think I want to work part-time for life.
Yeah, I'm spinning three plates, but consider that I now get a decent lunch hour and I have time after work to get a pedicure and fix my kids' after school snack...well, it doesn't seem so bad.
I'm sure it will be different when the weather gets colder, but I love being able to step outside everyday. That I, in some sense, can experience the outside world in between the hours of eight a.m. and four p.m. is amazing.
Right now, I am crazily busy, and the schedule seems way hectic, trying to juggle work, soccer, gymnastics, Girl Scouts, and a community theater play, but I still am feeling a sense of peace. I'm not cooped up in a hermetically sealed, artificial environment all day. I have more freedom than I have for the last ten years. My husband and I chat in the mornings, and all throughout the day actually.
If my life were a commercial jingle right now, it would be "ba da ba ba ba...I'm lovin' it!"
