It's Been A While

I know I'm terrible. It's been a while since my last post, but life has been crazy lately. We finally completed our move and we are all getting settled slowly. We are also due to close on our home around September 10th. I'm so happy and so relieved that it's all going smoothly. It's such a bitter sweet time in my life. Our home that we are currently selling is our dream home. I love everything about living in that area, but I know that the hubby will be getting laid off soon and again we will struggle to make our mortgage payment. It's so heart breaking for me to have to let go of our sweet home, but what choice do we have with our poor economy and our financial situation. I'll be starting my journey into the job market as soon as our little one starts school next week. I have to be honest. I'm terrified to jump back into the job market. It's been six years and I feel I'm so rusty with my job skills. I have so many questions running through my head. Are people going to want to hire a 40 year old who hasn't worked in six years? Will I get paid what I did six years ago. See, tons of questions. I guess I'll have to see what the future holds. Wish me luck.


  1. Don't worry--six years is nothing! I hadn't worked in ages as I was a SAHM for 15 years! You have to just ease back into it, but it comes back. All of the technology had changed when I went back to work, but everyone was more than helpful to explain things.

    As for the pay--well, I doubt anyone is earning what they should these days. I would imagine that you might take a loss, but you will regain it after awhile. It's just the market now--they want cheap help.

    I wish you the best of luck!! Don't worry about the house--it is just a house. I know, easy to say, but you do what you have to do to survive. We all do. Hang in there, pally!

  2. I wish you all the luck in the world! Also luck to Hailey at her new school and your hubby with work too. It's hard everywhere. I hope you mom is feeling better and I'm sure she loves having you around. Take care and things will get better.

  3. God never closes a door without opening a window. There is just the right opportunity waiting for you. When I started back after being off 12 years my employer said I was exactly what she was looking for. She wanted someone that was done having babies and was ready to work. She was right on both counts :) Keep your eyes open and the right job will drop right in your lap. Good Luck

  4. I wish you soo much luck, friend. I have not worked 5 years this month. And it will be at least another 2 before I go back.. so, I will be in the same boat as you.. It will be hard, but know that everything happens for a reason and it is not always in our hands. Trust that things will work out as they are supposed to, as they are meant to. Thinking of you and sending well wishes your way!
