(sorry to bump this in on your TGIF, Nikki… but I was so excited, I didn’t want to wait any longer to tell you guys this)
This morning (Thursday), I dropped off a signed EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT!!!! WOOHOOO!!!! I’M GONNA GO BACK TO WORK!!!!
Frankly, between you and me, I’m a little bit beyond terrified. I haven’t “worked” for over eight years. I quit my last day-to-day job when I was about eight months pregnant with Josh. Since then, I’ve only had a short run as a correspondent for our local newspaper, and that was mostly on my own time… visit someplace cool, write about it.
But this. This is Big Time, y’all. I’ve taken a position as an Insurance-Agent-in-Training. Within about a month, I will be licensed, and then I will be researching and writing policies for car, health, home, stuff. I get a big office. With a door and everything.
I have to dress up. And not “add a necklace with those jeans” dress up, I mean DRESS UP. Like black pants and nice blouse, and NO GYM SHOES dress up. Holy crap!!
I start a week from Monday. Josh starts school the week after that. He’s pretty excited. He is expecting to come to work with me on Take Your Kid To Work Day. When is that, anyway?
It’s going to affect my work here, though. I already contribute a paltry amount, due to some craziness in my life, and now I fear I will have time for even less. I don’t even know if I’ll be able to visit every day. Maybe in the mornings after things calm down and I get into a routine, I don’t know. I don’t have a cool internet phone or a tablet or anything, and I won’t ‘surf’ at work; we’ll just have to see.
So if I’m quiet for a while, you’ll know why.
Wish me luck. I’m gonna need it, y’all. But I plan to rock this job. I feel all grown up and stuff!
