So for the past two months I’ve been working at my children’s school as one of the “Lunch Ladies”…glamorous I know😉
But as of early this week, the lady that I was filling in for came back. And I have to admit, I was a little sad. Sad bc for the first time in a few years I was doing something outside of our home, something that wasn’t directly tied to our family. And it felt good. It felt good get out of the house with a specific purpose and add to our household income doing it.
This got me to thinking about seasons…right now I’m in the “home” season. Our kids are still fairly young, our youngest is 2. And honestly, most things are about my family, their needs and what has to be done so that everything is running efficiently.
But soon enough, this season will change. Out youngest will be in school and our oldest will be a 7th grader in just 3 short years. And our home will be empty during the day. Which means I’ll be free to pursue other things. Will I work part time? Go back to school? Start a non-profit? Work from home????
The options are endless. But I do know that I want to be prepared when my next season comes. I’ve seen and heard about moms who are struggling bc their season has changed and they haven’t changed with it.
So right now is preparation time. And I plan to be prepared for my next season…
