But then the guilt of the thought of leaving my babies to go work set in. I started weighing the pros and cons of going to work. The pros:
- Make extra money for my family.
- We will have to get another car, which will add a monthly car payment to our bills.
- I will be away from my babies for 40 hours a week.
- I won't see much of my husband for 2 days out of the week.
I had not heard from the place I applied to in over a week, and I assumed that they probably hired someone else. Well, Friday afternoon I got a call from one of the people that interviewed me. They said my background check had just come back, and they wanted me to start Monday. Before I could even get an answer out they told me how much I'm going to be making.... Let's just say they are offering way more than what I was expecting. Like so much more I would be an idiot to not take this job. With what they are offering we could easily afford another car, and I could handle leaving the kids to work. I'm sure it will be really hard at first, but if I know I am making a pretty decent living to make their lives better- I would do it! I accepted the position, and I am reporting for my first day to work in nearly 11 months, on Monday at 9am!
Roger and I have a friend who is a car salesman; he hooked us up with an awesome deal on a used little Chevy Malibu. It's gonna be perfect for my commute, and there is plenty of room in the backseat for 2 car seats!
I'm excited, but I gotta be honest, I'm kinda freaking out. Since yesterday afternoon I have cleaned the entire apartment, I've picked me and the kids outfits out for the week, I've made some freezer meals so I don't have to come home and cook, and I made a daily schedule for Roger so he knows what to do hour-to-hour with the kids.
I've got to take some deep breaths and CALM down! Everything's gonna work out just fine, right??
