As, I follow anything Angie does, I am now addictied to Tracy's Monday Night Live classes. Even tho she LOVES butterflies & is getting Angie to embrace the flying worms, it IS alot of fun. Really hard to keep up with the chat & Ustream isn't the best of sites, but it's FREE!!! (Wonder if I paid the $4 per month, it would be better and/or easier to log into ???) Anyway, she issued a July Dare. And, being too stupid to realize I CAN'T CREATE, I participated. Here is my entry:
Last September, I went back to work full time after 10 years as a nearly stay-at-home mom. It was hard. Even tho my kids are older, I have always been there for them. Making sure they were up in time for school, making sure they had their gym clothes, running their gym clothes down to the school when they forgot (even after being reminded). I knew it was going to be better for them to learn to take care of themselves, I was still scared!! Plus, I wanted to be there for them!! That was MY JOB!!!
IN addition, the world has changed in 10 years. ALOT OF CHANGE!!! Would I be able to adapt to working again? Do I have a clue on how to do Medical Collections anymore? Can I talk to grown up humans and not make too much of a fool of myself. The answers were all YES!!!! It IS like riding a bycycle. I have a nearly perfect job &, most days, I enjoy it. The work is fine, the pressure of producing, not great. But I'm doing it. And the kids are surviving.
I still have to learn to LET GO, release my fears & anxiety. It will ALL BE OK!!! I will be ok. The kids will be ok. And Scott's learning ALOT about all the things I've had to do for the last few years so he's getting to "grow" as a parent. LOL
