Amazingly, I am still on track with my 360 Project (you can read about the project here). I managed to take a photo each day this week and I had a lot of fun. One of my goals moving forward with this project is to try and get a little more creative with my photos. It has been a little difficult since we are pretty much stuck indoors but I am looking into rigging a back-drop set-up which will allow me to use props, etc with Peanut (more on this later). Valentines Day photo shoot, anyone? But for now – here is my week in rewind…
Peanut today before we went out
Yesterday – Peanut using books for what they’re meant for – eating (sorry for the blur)
Wednesday – welcome to Peanut’s feet-playing hour
Some new and exciting things are coming up. I am planning on returning to work in September so to gear up for that I applied for a job. Said job gave me an interview. My first interview as a school psychologist!! Eek I was really scared but I think it went really well. I am glad my first experience was a positive one – I am also happy that the only job I applied for gave me an interview. Definitely encouraging. And refreshing.
It was refreshing in two ways. I got to feel like a professional again for a day. Awesome. I actually put make-up on and had conversations about things other than poopy diapers. Oh – and the prospect of actually collecting a PAYCHECK is definitely enticing. But then I drove home and reality set in. Becca’s Brain: “What if they offer me the job?… Oh.my.God! What if they offer me the job?! [Insert horrifying images of dropping off Peanut at daycare]. I would miss her too much. Who would sing to her? Will she even recognize me anymore? Know that I’m her mommy? Oh.my.God. She isn’t even crawling yet! I will miss her first crawl! Her first word! Nooooooooo!!!” So in a sense, (my what is likely an overreaction – ok fine – it IS an overreaction), reality kicked me in the butt. I actually do love this stay at home thing. The thought of it being taken away gave me a new perspective that I had thought about before but never really felt it until then. I realized that I already have a job that has it’s own rewards – the intangible kind – and I was completely refreshed.
