Some people don’t like change. I usually don’t mind change, but that’s debatable. I can accept change from the cashier when I’m expecting some back, but I don’t like to carry much change. It’s cumbersome. I like to change my living room furniture around, and I like to change my sheets once a week. But I don’t like to change the cat box. I leave that to someone else because, frankly, I do everything else.
With great anticipation, my situation is changing and I’m hoping it will be a good change. I am returning to the work force. Although I have stayed incredibly active with various things since 1999, I have not obtained “real” gainful employment since my last “real” job in 1998. Things will be changing around here with the way I currently do things and there are other changes that lie ahead such as:
Change #1: Wake up schedule . I’m not a morning person. I routinely hit the snooze at 7:00 a.m., then 7:05 a.m., fall back asleep, then get out of bed around 8:00 a.m…or a little after. Writing that makes it appear worse than it is. Actually, after reading it, it sounds very pathetic. Perhaps having a job to wake up early for will be better for me. I guess I will need an earlier bed time as well and that leads to…
Change #2: Bed Time. My nightly schedule is in bed by 11:30 p.m. or midnight, and then asleep by 1:00, 1:30, or 2:00am. It depends on a couple of factors; if Craig Ferguson was hilarious and I laughed too much to fall asleep, or if I got caught up in a Felicity DVD (guilty pleasure).
Change #3. Exercising. Here is my quandary. I have owned my own time for 10 years. When I return to work, then I loose my freedom to do things my own way. I will have to fit in exercising when time allows and this will drive me insane.
Change #4. Dinner. Really, this is a touchy subject around here. I just can’t think about how I’m going to plan dinner for the over eater and the picky eater. My role in the kitchen is a perpetual short order cook. Time to pull out the crock pot and if anyone complains…God help them!
Change #5. Everything else. I wear lots of hats around here which basically means, I do it all. Especially when it comes to maintaining and sustaining all that is done inside the home. Divine intervention will be required to help with everything else.
Change #6. Blogging and social networking. Hmmm…I will make this work…even if it’s the death of me! Facebookers…hang in there! I won’t leave you!!
After putting all of this into perspective, I’m a little overwhelmed. What have I gotten myself into?
I need some chocolate.
