Coming out of the professional closet

Hey everyone!
I got a job. And I like it. And that makes me nervous. Because it could all go away.

Let me tell you a few things:

  1. Being at work is easier than being at home with a baby (or two babies) almost all of the time.
  2. Working and also getting all the home stuff done and spending enough time with said babies is actually quite challenging.
  3. Finding a job with a flexible schedule paying enough money to make childcare feasible is super hard — without even factoring in whether or not it is a job worth having.
  4. And finding a job worth having with a flexible schedule, enough money, that’s close to home and preschool with a life partner like Alec to balance the home stuff and BFF/LLP site partner like Whitney to keep the rookiemoms rolling along — well, that’s like getting a baby to sleep through the night all the time — you don’t want to talk about it and jinx yourself!

Since Holden was born two and half years ago, I have had several combinations of free-lance and part-time gigs. This is the first one I’m really excited about though. So wish me luck and go buy a bunch of TasteBooks to keep me in business. Thanks!

This bumps these two things off my list.

98. Update my resume
99. Get a job I like
