Since my job ended recently, I have been living my life as a “stay-at-home-mom” (SAHM) and a job seeker. I put “SAHM” in quotes because I can’t really say I’m mothering while I’m here. The kids are still at school every day. But still I am finding it very easy to fill my days. Between job hunting, preparing for vacation, catching up on outdated projects, having lunch with people because I finally have the time, and doing laundry, it easily becomes 4pm, and I wonder where my day went. Seriously, how did I get anything done working full-time?
I’ll be honest. I love being at home. I love taking my time in the morning. I love getting to exercise when it is light outside – like in the middle of the day! I love being able to catch up on my DVR. I love not stressing…. yet. (The key here is “yet” since I have a feeling I’ll start stressing about the no job situation in about a week.) Most of all, though, I love being able to enjoy some extra time with some of my favorite people.
I could get used to this kind of life. Unfortunately, I know it will end because I have to go back to work. Until then, though, I’m appreciating the time.
