Do They Make a Power Flip Flop?
Guess who's headed back to the world of paychecks and racing away from home in the morning, happy to see the house in her rear-view mirror?
Yep. Ima is starting kindergarten in a few weeks. I managed to be a stay home mom for five and a half years. When Lotta was a baby I took a job at a daycare center just so that I could always be with her. So Lotta had a little daycare experience, but I was there for all the times she bit other kids, ate twice her share of snacks, and said her first word. (It was "more" -- which we tell her still fits her personality).
So I'm going back to work at the job I quit when I met Ben and moved to Virginia. The guy I hired has hired me back to help out. I think I'm actually getting a raise of 25 cents an hour over what I left at. Is that good or bad after a nine year hiatus?
Anyway, it's part time. Oh, and that guy I hired who hired me back? Raging republican. So much fodder for future posts, it practically makes me think they could pay me less! Nah.
Now I'll need to think up a fake name for him. I won't start until mid-September, so I (meaning you guys) have plenty of time to come up with something.
