Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to work I go!

So tomorrow is my first day. I'm worried that I'm not going to be able to do it all, but for now, I'm mostly excited. I really don't know what to expect tomorrow- I think a lot of paperwork, maybe a tour?? I'm looking forward to being out of the house all by myself and having some time to think and feel productive! I'm not looking forward to leaving my boy and not looking forward to hearing my husband complain about how difficult he was all day long! I am kind of looking forward to him realizing what I was dealing with every day.

I should have spent the rest of my week last week making sure that my house was spotless and my clothes were all ironed and ready to go. I didn't do that. The best I got was making a notebook for relevant household information, including a master calendar showing where I'll be when and who will be here to watch Tyler. It also has a list of daily tasks for me to focus on so I stay ahead of the mess. Thanks to my mom, I am pretty much caught up on laundry. She came over to help me fold! I spent Thursday and Friday relishing the last few days of stay at home "freedom", wearing yoga pants all day on Friday and spending lots of time playing with the kiddo. And shopping for a few new things for work!

I feel a little like it's the first day of school tomorrow. I had a dream last night that I overslept for my first day. That just can't happen! Here's to hoping and to starting a new chapter- still stay at home, but working too- hopefully the best of both worlds!

  1. I hope you have a good first day! I know what you mean about it feeling like the first day of school. On my first day at my old job, I forgot my name tag (left it in the wrong car) and freaked out. Luckily it wasn't a big deal there like it had been to forget it in high school.

  2. Thanks Jenny! I got your message this morning as I was headed into orientation! It went just fine. A little slow, but hopefully we'll pick up the pace.

  3. I'm anxious to hear how it has gone...
    Praying it's all working out.

    Happy weekend!

  4. Congratulations on your new job! Hey I tried to contact you on Twitter, but maybe this is better - Lauren @ Hobo Mama said you were willing to host a guest post for the February Carnival of Natural Parenting. I am cohosting the Carnival, and it's a friend of mine that wants to guest post.
