I Have To Wear Pants Today

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

no pants are the best pants:

I have to wear pants today. And tomorrow, and the day after that, and the day after that. Except for a few interviews here and there over the last seven weeks but who's counting I have not worn pants for an entire day since July 1st! I wear that badge with honor as it is an ultimate life goal to be pantsless as often as possible. 

Anywho, in case you missed  it I am starting a new job today. I am nervous and excited and anticipating a very busy couple of weeks ahead. I don't always excel at change so I pray for smooth and easy transitions into this new role and company.  My oldest started her dual enrollment program this week too so we are all just in a tailspin over here. I have the fridge stocked, crockpot ready to go, schedules mapped out on who needs to be where and when. My planner is exploding with information! My outfits are at least planned in my head. Hoping to get to that before I go to sleep Monday night. I hope I can sleep.

I have been feeling a tad bittersweet about going back to work. Obviously I want and need to work but, every time I have been unemployed over the last several years I have really looked at it as an unplanned gift of precious time with my children. Having been a stay at home Mom first, then a working Mom, I can appreciate the joy of being there when they get off the bus every day. I love hearing about their days the minute it is fresh in their little minds. They are always, always the most excited to share in that moment over a snack and a drink. Advice to you future Moms out there! But, hopefully there will be some flex time in my future and I will get to enjoy that now and again!

I am also hoping to be here some but for obvious reasons I may not be. Last weekend I chose to spend my time out in the world with friends rather than in front of the computer preparing posts for this week. But then again, sometimes I find relaxation  in coming here and writing. So maybe I will, maybe I won't. I just wanted to throw it out there that I might appear to be MIA but most likely I will be snapping and instagramming away as that seems a little easier when I am super busy, so check me there... @crazywisewoman on both if ya miss me. 

Thanks to all of you for always being so supportive of my seemingly constant ups and downs! Looks like the roller coaster is on the way up again . Here's to hoping it will stay that way for awhile!

I wanna go back to Cedar Point amusement park off of Lake Erie, this ride is Top Thrill Dragster, SOOO MUCH FUN!! :D:

Cheers to new adventures!
