Stepping out of my comfort zone

Well today I did something that was very uncomfortable but needed. I went and applied for a a daycare/preschool. It was really weird having to fill out a job application. I've been so out of the loop for so long. It just didn't feel right! I went blank at times trying to figure out dates and names. Being a stay-at-home mom has been the best job ever. I don't want to have to go to work but I know that I have too. I've got to pay off some debt that I've accrued on myself and be responsible. :( If not, things will get ugly!

Anywho, back to the application...I felt so out of it filling it out! I felt like I didn't have any experience to show. That's not true, but being away for 5.5 years is way to long! And WHY a daycare/preschool? I want to work while the kids are in school...well, the girls anyways. Colton can come with me to work, just not by my side. He'll be somewhere I know is safe and I can still be with him. Wish me luck!

I'd rather win the lotto, but...gotta play the lotto to win the lotto!

I remember a couple of years ago when I went through the whole job process and actually GOT accepted at a FANTASTIC job only to be talked out of it by Andy (for selfish reasons I'm sure b/c it was during a period when we were really struggling and he looked at it as a threat and an "out" for me b/c I'd be financially stable w/o him)...

but I, too, remember, "wow, what DO I have to show for the years at home. It's hard to realize your pay-off won't really show until such time that your kids are grown.

I hope it's a) all that you want it to be and b) a good way for you to get it all paid down quickly!
