Today is definitely my day to be “More than just a Mom”…I work today…and it’s my long day. Oh, I don’t technically work any more hours – just 3 – but the 3 hours are split. An hour and a half, then an hour and a half break, then another hour and a half. So, work takes up a lot of the day. Afterwards, I am beat. On Sundays, my job entails working with a lot of people, a lot of personalities.
I enjoy my job. Two days during the week, I have the solitude of working alone in my office, doing various things. On Sundays, I get to work with people. It’s a nice balance.
The work itself is challenging enough to keep me learning new things, which I like a lot. None of it is out of my ability range, it’s just things I never bothered to learn, I had no need to learn it. So, as the need arises, I spend my off time teaching myself how to do things I’ll need for work.
How does this relate to being “Between”? I am between places right now. Between the mommy world and the working world. I work part time, very part time. And the rest of the time, I’m a mom. When asked who my employer is on paperwork, I still often leave it blank – they really want my husband’s employer for the benefits. Besides – I’m the one that answers the phone at my place of employment!
