Change Is Coming

Less than two weeks ago my friend and mentor called me and asked if I was ready to go back to work. I was sure the answer was no.

But then he presented me with the opportunity, and it was something I had to at least look at.

So I looked. And I interviewed last Monday.

I had a second interview on Saturday morning.

And today I accepted an offer.

As soon as I can arrange child care and get things organized here at home I'm returning to work full-time in communications.

I'm excited and I want to throw up all at the same time.

When I told my sister that she said, "So it's pretty much like finding out you're pregnant with triplets?"

Ha! That's true.

This is a short-term gig, just through the end of the year and I know it will be a big adjustment for all of us, but I think the opportunities it will bring down the road will be worth it.

Change certainly is the one constant in our lives, isn't it?

Congrats and Good Luck!
I know you will enjoy a bit more adult interaction even the ability to use the bathroom without fear of what is going on in the rest of the house.
A few things to remember;
If you walk by the mens room and hear laughter - There is no need to investigate!
When in a small group. it is Not your duty to keep everyone together. On a related note, coworkers are allowed to walk through the parking lot and even cross the street without holding hands.
The dress code could be the biggest hurdle, I doubt you will have any coworkers wearing the same leotard day after day...
