The company that laid me off in May has hired me back. For now. A different sector of the company needs some help so I’m going to work for them temporarily. It would be great if I could move into a permanent position so we could get some health insurance around here, but I doubt it’s going to work out.
Getting back into working, watching Brady and coming up with somewhere for him to go a few days a week again definitely has me cringing. And I’ll admit, the stress of my first day caused a few tears. Being a full time housewife is super hard and it’s been stressful in its own right, now adding a job back into the mix makes it even worse. I did it before and I’ll do it again, I’ve just really enjoyed having Brady be my priority. I’m not ready to work again.
I don’t know how this is all going to work out but somehow we’ve got to have a second income and health insurance. I hate thinking that might involve me working out of the house. Maybe something wonderful will fall from the sky…
