Today I'm going to my old work to decorate some cakes. I always feel like I'm ready to go back, even if it's just a few hours a week to decorate cakes. But now that I'm a few hours away from having to go in I have that yucky feeling in my stomach LMAO. I could use the money as being home my spending habits have gotten a little out of hand, stupid online shopping.

Did anyone else get like this? Ugh.... I really don't want to go!

I did not want to return to work and still do not want to be here. I LOVE editing and love my job/company, but I would much rather spend that time with Jordan.
That said, my goal is to freelance edit so I can eventually work from home. I'm trying to break into it part-time, but it is hard to find reputable places when you don't already know someone working there!

I am very lucky because I can work from home. I have a home daycare and I also help my dad run his business, so I don't have to leave my kids. I bet you will enjoy it once you get there, you will get some adult interaction, I know that's something I miss

I didn't want to go back either but I'm part time so its not to bad. I would still much rather be home with Matthew but I do like the extra cash and I need to support my spending habits to ha ha. But thankfully my job is really flexible so I can pretty much work what I'm comfortable with. But I will admit its nice to have some away time and interact with adults lol

It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought. I really enjoy the adult interaction. And I get a bit of a break and I know Cam is learning and improving his social skills and such. But I have an end in sight and will be on mat leave again in 7 months

Well it wasn't horrible. But it wasn't enjoyable either LOL It was hotter then hell in the building and that does not make for a good environment for decorating ice cream cakes. It would be nice to have some adult interaction, however, I'll be working for indians who have very thick accents so I kind of kept to myself.

I'm glad!

I forgot to say good luck at the end of my post! How often are you going to do this and for how long each time? Where is Summer while you're there?

I'm not sure how often I will be doing it. Right now it's just one store, but they are thinking about putting me at 2 other stores as well since it's only once a week. It's only for 3-4 hours(per store). Doesn't really seem worth it but they are desperate and offered me decent money to come do them for them.

Take it and run! I wish I had kept my hand in at decorating...I can't do half of what I used to.

Sounds like a good way back into the world of work to me, doing bits here and there.

Totally relate to that ick feeling in the pit of the stomach, I think it's just low confidence when you've been off work for a while, but I've found it doesn't take long to get back into the swing of things.
