Work It, Girl

I know, I know, I did it again. I left you all for a week with no warning. HOWEVER, I had good reason, I swear!



MOMMY GOT A J-O-B! That's right, I am going back to work...FULL TIME. Last week was spent scrambling around trying to find interview clothes (thanks, Jodi), remembering how to put makeup on so it didn't look like my four-year-old did it (thanks, YouTube), re-learning how to walk in heels so I didn't break my freshly makeup-ed face (thanks, Carrie Bradshaw), and reviewing my dictionary for words other than "stop", "don't", "put that down", and "here, let me wipe that" (thanks, Merriam-Webster).

It was a success, and as of May 9th I am employed. I definitely have mixed emotions going into it - like how am I going to adjust from being home full time to being in an office full time (and away from my kiddos)? And also, how am I going to fit in any kind of writing with working full time and being mommy? I don't know the answers, but I know it's all going to be okay.

So. What does this mean for the good ol' blog, and for you, my wonderful friends? It means I need to go away for a bit. I wish I could say that I could pull this transition off and maintain the blog at the same time, but the truth is, I am not insane THAT organized! I wish I had a stockpile of posts just waiting for me to hit "publish", but I don't. I'm a pantser, a day-to-day kind of girl. So that's exactly what I'm going to do: take this day by day. I might pop in to post from time to time, but for now, I'm going to focus my energies and brainpower on settling into the new job.

You know I'll miss you. And in case you don't know...I'LL MISS YOU.

  4. Wendy - Thank you :) I will be working as a receptionist/accounting help for a large construction company. The hours are pretty intense. 8-5!

    Angie - Thank you so much! I'm grateful b/c they were very flexible with me up front as I'm trying to get my kids through the last month of school (then hubby is off for summer b/c he's a teacher!). I feel very blessed.

    Laura (Mrs. Groves!) - Thank you so much. I'm sure I will have SOMETHING to say about it once I'm settled in :)

  7. Well, I personally don't care for large construction companies if they are going to steal funny blogging critting friends from me. However, good luck and I'm sure writing will find a way into your life at odd moments.

  9. Oh, wow! How exciting and nerve-wracking! You'll be great. The kids and family will adjust and when things settle down, you'll find a way to write too. Good luck!

  10. Hey, Beth! What an exciting time in your life. I know you want advice from one pantser to another - do exactly what you said you were going to do and take it one day at a time and don't waste time thinking you should be doing something else. Blog when you can, but don't worry when you don't. And keep a notebook open at your desk at all times. Random thoughts always flash in my head as I'm working and I just note them and get right back to work. Good luck, friend.

  11. A note on the life of an honest and fascinating ... Is not life it is! With family, too, there's always a great thing and also annoying at the same time, but enjoy and through it with a happy heart! Life is wonderful!

    The pictures are very nice I was amazed at all!

  14. Hey Beth!
    I wandered onto your blog via FB, we share a mutual friend. Congratulations on your job, but hey just think of that as a spring board, a temporary fix. We live in some exciting and scary times, with some major paradigm shifts taking place. So, don't be away from your kids too long if you don't have to be, right? Once you get settled and decide you want to see some options (exit strategies), we should connect! Facebook.com/Team.Enterprise Best wishes! Jim ;)
