Last week I went to fill out some more paperwork for the part time job (I am officially hired now) and my Dad came to watch the boys. Pierce had a two hour school delay due to ice (but was glad he still got to go to school, since it was stripes day and he was sporting his Where's Waldo costume).
Pop Pop showed up at around 7 am and was immediately tackled by some enthusiastic kids. They made him read this Thomas the train book about 40 times in a row before I even left.
As for the job, they already have a case for me, which sounds like a good match if I can work out the hours with the client so that we're meeting when the twins are in preschool, or later in the evenings after Paul is home. I'm excited to be making a difference in the community again, and will only be working around 9-12 hours a week for now, so it shouldn't detract much from family life. In case you missed it before, I'll be providing emotional support and assisting those in the community that have difficulties due to mental health issues. I will only be working with one or two people at a time and I may work with the same client for over a year. I'm thankful to have found something that has flexible hours, is part time, and uses my background. Because I've been playing the lottery for a few years now, and somehow, it just doesn't seem to be working out for me....
What about you, readers? What kind of job fits your personality best?
