just started working after .....
Mon, 07-21-2003 - 1:26pm

I have been a stay at home mom for 15 years. I have two children, and decided this past March to find a part time job. So... i did, it is very hard to run a house and work since i have never did it before. ( I forgot to mention tht my second child has Down syndrome). I found myself enjoying the job so much plus i liked the friendships. So I was working 5 days a week!! WRONG!! I went into over drive and thought I was going to loose my mind. SO... now I am down to 2 days a week and I love it, but I still feel funny maybe guilty?

thanks for listening!!

I was home for 12 years before I went back. I found that working part time can make the transistion much easier. It can be a shock going from 0 to 40 hours a week. I started out at 20 hours a week, have worked various amounts and probably will go full time when my DD goes back to school.
