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 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.
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.
