Some of you may be wondering how my little shopping excursion went. It was not as successful as I hoped. The sweater boots? Made me look like a clown! And they didn't have the others. I looked around and the only ones I found and kind of liked were $100 and well, I don't need new boots that badly. I did get a couple good *practical* deals at Victoria's Secrets and while they aren't anything fancy, HB isn't complaining either ;)
I took a big step yesterday. I sent in my resume for a job. HB and I agree that I don't *need* to get a job right now and it is wonderful that I can stay at home with Lil Gbear, but I think if I don't start consider making a career for myself soon, I may just get so out of the loop it will be difficult to re-enter the work force. So, I saw a listing for a job that would further my career goals AND it's only two days a week, so I would still have ample time to take care of lil Gbear. On the one hand I'm super excited at the prospect of getting out there, making a little money, and boosting my resume. On the other, I'm terrified to leave Lil Gbear. In the past, I've only ever left him with family or very close friends. Finding a daycare frightens me. I have no idea what to look for. So today, while Lil Gbear is napping (i.e. after I finish this post) I shall be doing a little research on daycare.
I don't necessarily think I will get this job. It would be way too lucky to get the first job I applied to, but I think it's time I start proactively deciding what the next step is.
