It’s been a while since I share my life with you, my amazing readers. Where to start!!! Well, I finally landed a job, after staying home for a little over a year, I am finally a full-time employee. How does it feel to be back at work? Well, to be completely honest, I have mixed emotions. I miss having all the time in the world to have my house clean, miss my dog horribly, and I miss having dinner ready when hubs get home from work (now he gets home before me). I do enjoy being away from the home, meeting new people, and the perks of having a paycheck.
The job itself will be challenging, at least emotionally, but someone has to do it! I am currently employed at Lutheran Services Carolina, the transitional foster care program as a Case Manager for the Unaccompanied Alien Children in Columbia, SC. The program is fairly new, and we have a really good staff, eager to start receiving/working with the children. It’s a new adventure for sure, and as always, I will do my best to help those innocent, vulnerable children.
Another biggie in the house is that my gorgeous daughter got her driver’s license this past week, and we are super happy for her. She is also having a birthday soon and I cannot wait to see her face when she receives her birthday gifts. We also just celebrated my handsome son’s 15th birthday and we were thrilled to see his face when he opened his presents.
Today we are looking forward our vacation, coming up next week, we are heading back to Oak Island, NC. We are taking some of the kids’ friends with us, so we are going to have a full house. It’s a bit frightening when you start thinking about all the breakfasts, lunches, and dinners this mama is going to have to prepare…that is why I rather wing it and don’t think about it!
I also start my next 11 weeks of school, this time around I settled with just one class. I have six classes left to complete my Masters in Human Resources Management, and so far my GPA is a 4.0. I am hoping I can maintain that GPA, but I would be lying if I tell you that it’s easy…it’s hard, time-consuming, and very stressful.
One more week and this family will be on vacation!!! Cannot wait to feel the ocean breeze caressing my skin!!!
