Just realized this morning that I haven’t posted anything about a big decision I made last month!
I am going to be working outside the home again! Starting tomorrow.
A month ago, I had been thinking that I really wasn’t ever going to do health and safety work again. (not sure what that is? read this post)
Not a week later, I was contacted by a friend from church asking if I would be interested in doing some consulting for the company she works for. I immediately said that I needed some time to pray and think about it! Needless to say, that led to me accepting the work.
I have not worked outside the home (in a paying job, that is) for 6 years! And when I my friend contacted me, working outside the home now hadn’t even entered my consciousness! But I felt God leading me to accepting – if only to test the waters and see if it’s something I’m still interested in. The fact is, my youngest will be starting school in a year and a half! So if I want to work then, this is a good start.
This job is very limited – a couple of hours a week for a couple of months. So in that respect, it’s very do-able. And I find that I’m excited about it. Excited about doing something out of the ordinary. Excited about contributing to our family’s income. Excited about getting out of the house for a couple of hours a week. Excited about re-entering a world of grown-ups and important.business.things. Excited about using some of that knowledge I paid a lot of money for several years back!!
Pray for me! I already know I have to find a better time than the mornings to work on the at-home preparation (my little one is chomping at the bit while I’m trying to finish up on the computer!) I’m hoping going back to work will be like riding a bike – it’ll all come back to me!
