Well, my youngest son is now in North Carolina at college and my husband says to me " Well, don't you think it is time?" I reply " Huh?"
I know EXACTLY what he is talking about. It is time for me to get the dreaded "full-time job". LOL. I actually have been waiting for this moment for 22 years. ( My oldest son is 21). I consistently dreamed about it when my kids were throwing up or having temper tantrums! It was my "happy place".
So, it is here. I sit down and write down things I am qualified to do (even though I have a Journalism degree from Rutgers University).
1. Embrace chaos.
2. Clean up throw-up and poop.
3. Drive a car like nobody's business.
4. Answer the question "Why?" about a zillion different ways.
5. Whip up dinner in an instant and never know what ingredients you actually used.
6. Understand Doctor's lingo, even though I don't have a medical degree.
These were just a few. I think impressive, but don't think employers will.
When something comes about that you have been fantasizing about ( minds out of the gutters ladies), don't run away from it. So, I am running towards it! Didn't have to run far. Thank God for that cause I can't even make it to the end of my driveway!
I got a call and am going to be a teacher's aide in an autistic class of first and second graders. It is the school system my oldest son in special education went through. Full-circle, I guess. LOL. Since I screwed up one special needs kid, I guess I will share the wealth. Only kidding!
