Work Shmirk?

May 6, 2009

I quit my job before I had Jack because I was on bed rest anyway and had already decided not to come back after I had him. The hours were too crazy for someone to keep him, and I’d be losing money when I don’t get paid when a client cancels.

I really thought I’d be perfectly content to just stay at home everyday with Jack. I love staying home with him, most days; but some days, it’s hard on me mentally. I’m thinking that working two days a week might be good for me.

I have an interview today. I sent my resume on Monday and forgot all about it. I’m not extremely eager to start working again. But, after making the interview appointment, I kind of flipped out in my head.

Do I really want to do this? I cry even thinking about leaving Jack with someone else during the day. Will Jack be ok? Is he going to get sick all the time being around other kids? Can I function at work on no sleep? Can I get us both ready in the morning on time?

Then, just for today, what the crapola do I wear to a job interview with this postpartum body!?!? I’m a big proponent of first impressions during a job interview. Well, none of my darn clothes fit!

I really don’t feel like I look like myself these days. It’s been hard dealing with slow weight loss. And slow fading stretch marks. And wider hips. And acne of a 13 year old boy. So, to meet someone for the first time like this is annoying.

So, here’s to faking confidence during the job interview.
