Well at least not full-time. I'll surely be cooking and cleaning and all that fun stuff (really, I enjoy that kind of thing) but it will be after work. Yep, I am looking for a job no longer. And I'm actually excited. Weird, I know.
I'm starting tomorrow and it'll be nice to be doing something and feel like I'm contributing. I did enjoy the time off but I'm definitely at the point where until we have kids, I'm done being at home by myself organizing the kitchen cabinets and playing Mahjong tiles, which I know you have no time to do once you have kids. But obviously the two are completely different. I definitely want to be at home when that time comes but doing so without attending to another human being is not so stimulating sometimes.
Thankfully I was wise enough so save enough in my last job so that we didn't have to stress over the fact that it could take awhile to find a new job, which it did. And thankfully I have a loving supporting husband who weathered this out with me. He even got up early this morning and found some resource books he has for me to look over for this new job I'm taking on. And thankfully I have a nice 8 -5 schedule with no evenings or Saturdays. It is the perfect balance for me right now between work and personal life. And thankfully I do not have to look for a job anymore and have that nagging feeling always there. And thankfully I have great friends and family who helped me find a new one.
I have learned a lot about myself and what I want in life, what I prioritize and what is important to me. It has done the same for Ryan and I's relationship too - it has helped us learn to rely on each other and I actually think it was good right off the bat as a little trial for the two of us to face and conquer together. And even though I'm probably making this whole process much more dramatic than it has been, it has definitely been a learning process for me and for us, but definitely a positive one.
It was nice doing the whole homemaker thing but this lady is ready to work.
I'll keep you posted on how it goes!
