In Which I Stop Worrying About Having To Visit The Welfare Office

For those of you who don’t know me on Facebook or Twitter……

I have a job! A real, 40 hours per week, income producing place to go on weekdays. I interviewed on Wednesday and was hired on the spot. After 19 months of sweating things, I am finally, once again, a productive member of society. I start as soon as the pre-employment drug screen comes back, probably Tues or Wed.

As huge a relief as this is….I am still having a hard time grasping the idea of it all. For it’s all well and good. Needed and desired, but you know what? I liked some aspects of being home all day.  This is very good for blogging though, as I blogged a lot more when I had a job and a life outside daytime television!

Still the things that run through my mind! For although my husband may live to see age 50 now that we aren’t stuck at home together, I am already crying about not getting to spend days with RolyPoly. And now that I may be able to save up for things I need and want, I will also have to get up every morning at some hour that is decidedly earlier than 9:30ish. I could go on, back and forth, but I won’t because the truth is? I am damned thrilled.

Have a great weekend everyone! I am going to celebrate it by honoring the fact that now my weekends will be different from every other day!
