Last Sunday evening I made a comment on Facebook how the Stay At Home Mom’s are happy to see Monday near, at least the ones that have kids in school.
This Monday, just a week later my life is just the opposite. The kids are staying home while this mom goes to work! (oldest is 17)
A couple of weeks ago someone told me about a photographer position at a local car lot. 20 hours or a less a week and the job could easily work around the kids school schedule so that I could pick them up. (no they don’t, no they can’t ride the bus). I never heard from them and wasn’t going to be pushy about it. If I got called in, I got called in, no biggie.. It just sounded like a fun job to fill some of my days.
Last Tuesday I was out shopping with my girlfriend and I got text from my former Mrs. Boss asking if I wanted some temporary work. Well, of course! I LOVED working for them and left on good terms. BUT… (don’t you hate BUT as the beginning of a sentence??) the kids had doctor appointments. One on Thursday and an all day, out of town for two boys that need the eye specialist on Friday. I told Mrs.Boss about those appointments. Her response,”Is Wednesday too soon?” Wednesday being the next day.
So, here I am a week later from my smart mouth remark on Facebook with my kids having a day off from school, and me heading to work never expecting to be anything other than a seamstress and a stay at home mom.
