About a week or so ago, I wrote a post called “Don’t Be Afraid of Change” in which I talked about a job I’d interviewed for & the changes that would be coming as a result of me starting to work. Well, I’m so happy to tell you that I got the Church Secretary job that I wrote about and today is my first day!
I have such mixed feelings about all of this. I’m so thankful that God led me to this position & that He allowed me to be hired for the job. I’m excited about all the new possibilities that are coming. I’m a little sad that the “stay at home mom” aspect of my life is over – Ashley is basically grown up now. I’m slightly fearful that I’ll be able to handle these new responsibilities and tasks. But most of all I’m just anxious to jump in and get started.
It’s funny to think of all the little things that will be different as a result of me working full time. For one, my black Lab, Juni, will be stuck home alone all day. Actually, I’ll be coming home for lunch each day so it’ll only be a few hours at a time. I think she can deal, lol! I’ll be getting up much earlier than I’m used to, which will probably be hard for a little while. I’m used to staying up late & sleeping in…..no more of that! Well, probably I’ll still stay up too late sometimes & have to deal with it the following day. My clothes are another thing that will change. I’m used to wearing sweats & t-shirts, which aren’t exactly considered business casual attire. Of course, that means I get to go shopping for new clothes! I’ll probably shop around at JC Penney, as well as Kohl’s department store, this weekend!
This is such an exciting new chapter in my life! I’m looking forward to all the awesome, new, fun things that come from it! And, of course, you’ll be along for the ride as I adjust to being a working woman!
