I don't see how you all have jobs and are able to post blogs on an almost regular basis! Since Thursday last week I have no been able to open my computer once. I think I may be having withdrawls. It's been a difficult transition from being home 24/7 to dividing my time between work and family. The laundry is piled to the ceiling, home cooked dinner has been non-existent, the dog is depressed because I haven't spent enough time with her, and let's not even talk about the kids! That being said.....
I love my job and I'm super excited about being a working member of society again. (not saying that being a stay at home whatever isn't an important job either) My manager says I'm picking up quickly and he is proud of me. It's been a struggle to understand the concept of all the paperwork, but like everything it will only take time.
2 advantages of me working:
- I'm not snacking throughout the day. It's way easier when you are home to graze all day. I bring a lunch and two snacks to work and that's it. There are no second helpings or multiple trips to the refrigerator.
- I'm not constantly thinking about food. Because my mind is moving and I'm learning all the new processes, food isn't a number one priority.
2 disadvantages of me working:
- I sometimes "forget" to eat lunch. Not good! My body likes to freak out and hold on to every ounce when that happens. Then when I get home all I want to do is eat!
- I'm not moving around as much as when I was home. Believe it or not, I didn't just sit around and eat bon-bon's watching Jerry Springer all day. I miss getting on the bike or going for a walk with the dog whenever I feel like it.
Once I get into the swing of things I will step up the blogging, but until then I'm sorry. I'm still reading all of your blogs, but I just haven't found the time to comment. I hope you understand!!!!
