Working Girl

The past few months I had considered working part-time,
but I am picky and I didn't want just any kind of job.
It needed to be family friendly!

 So, when my good friend Lori texted me and asked if I would like to apply for her job, 
I wondered if this could be what I had been waiting for.
She was the Seminary Secretary (Support Specialist) at Westwood and Heritage Seminaries.
She had been in the position for two years, but had recently been offered a full-time job.
I nervously decided to apply, which included submitting a resume.
Only in the church would a 25 year gap in employment history to be a MOM be looked upon as a success!

I went through the application and interview process and got the job!

The first few weeks were a bit stressful...the learning curve was just part of it...
being ready and out the door by 8:30am, wearing a dress/skirt everyday,
 and just the insecurities of wondering if my brain even functioned anymore
 made me wonder if I had made the right decision.

But, the good news is, I am learning my new job, my house is not falling apart, 
the laundry is getting done, my kids think it is awesome that I have a job 
and I am settling into the new routine.

I work with some great people who are kind, patient and encouraging.
The Westwood Faculty

There is still a lot to learn, but we are getting there!
