In the spirit of so very many good things happening to Team Stimey ALL AT THE EXACT SAME TIME ending in happy and overwhelm and more happy and then some anxiety and then a little more happy followed by a big sigh and a substantial amount of sitting on my couch trying to not do anything at all, I have one more piece of news for you.
I have a new job!
It’s not just any job either. I get to be the office manager for the Autistic Self Advocacy Network. I am so happy about it. I feel so proud to be able to play a role in supporting this fantastic organization and its cause.
Happily, it is a part time position that will fit my schedule perfectly and should (hopefully) have almost zero effect on my kids while they are in school, which is fortunate, as Quinn is ADAMANTLY against my working.
I imagine, however, once they hear that they get babysitters over the summer, they’ll be thrilled because they like other people way more than they like me. The will especially like the awesome babysitters I have lined up. (And thank god that is taken care of. Talk about overwhelm. Finding child care was at the top of my list of stressors.)
I start my job Monday. (Maybe at the very time you’re reading this!) It has been a long time since I have worked in an office so I am awash in my attendant anxiety about topics ranging from my new commute to bursting out with something inappropriate upon my arrival at work to one of my kids barfing at school and calling me immediately upon my arrival in DC. Wish me luck, okay?
