So I start my new job on Monday.
I am actually looking forward to it, partly. Mostly I am looking forward to the change in work. It’s a new company and REAL accounting work – the kind of accounting I haven’t done in a couple of years.
But I’m already stressed about how We are going to make it work.
The last time I worked full time, Owen was in full time daycare, where he was there 5 days a week. My commute was a do-able hour a day.
Now? Two days a week he is home almost three hours earlier than he was then. And my commute to this new job will easily be 2-3 hours every day.
I know that this is only short term, but I have to admit: I do not know where I will find the time.
So why did I take this job?
Well. It’s partly because money… and long term planning. Because if we are smart about it, we can really make a big dent in paying down debt in the next 4 months.
It’s also because I need a change, and I am taking a gamble that once this full time gig is over in March, I can go back to part time, remote work again.
The phrase Jeff and I have been using throughout this whole thing is Well, we can do anything for a few months.
Which is true.
Still, though. Sitting on this side, it feels like a huge mountain I have to climb.
