That whole taking my kid to work thing? Yeah. About that. It’s getting pretty real around here… as in, I am losing my mind. I can no longer use a desk chair at work. Yes, that’s right. Picture me, sitting kneeling at my desk, sans chair. Why? Because my child is part spider monkey and climbs up my legs, then falls down. Then cries. And whines. And cries. And whines. One thousand times per day. He wants to be held. So I pick him up. He wants to eat staples. I put him down. He cries. He wants to be held. So I pick him up. He arches his back in fury because I dared to pick him up. So I put him down. He screams. He wants to be held. So I pick him up. He presses “delete” and erases everything I just typed. Rinse and repeat. See my dilemma?
The good news is that my second interview went fantastic this week, and it looks like I’ll be getting an offer here in the next few days, according to my interviewer. I am so, so excited about this! Also, next week, I have an interview with my church for a communications position (both are part time… though the first offered me full-time if I want it). In a perfect world, I’d get both of these part time jobs and life would be just dandy. The church job is one that I have been seeking out and praying over for months, now, and it just feels right. The other job came like a whirlwind and feels equally amazing, so I think this may have been the point of the months of stress and job anxiety. God’s plan is coming into view, and let me just say, that I am pumped! His design is a thousand times better than I could have done on my own. Faith is a beautiful thing, guys. Praying that everything comes to fruition in the next few weeks. Then, my spider monkey will be staying at home with his big brother and Daddy… I give that a week, tops, before Trevor commits himself and we have to find alternative child care for our children! The combination of these two boys is akin to a whirling dervish of destruction and chaos. Ah, little boys… they’re the cutest little messes you could ever hope for having.
