Tomorrow’s the big day.

First day at the new job.

I took the kids to daycare today for a couple hours to get them used to it. Diva actually cried when I PICKED HER UP because she wanted to stay and play. So, I think they will adjust well.

Me?

Well… the whole thing is a little bittersweet. I feel a little jaded because I feel forced to do this (take a job, put my kids in daycare) when it wasn’t “the plan”. I wasn’t really ready to do this. I wanted to keep things the same, at least through the summer so that they didn’t have anymore big adjustments to make. The divorce has been hard on them. Their father’s tactics has made is harder recently. I had really wanted to finish school and send Diva off to school beforehand, but the day has arrived. There are definitely positives though. I think it will be good for the kids social skills, especially Pickle. I think I’m at the point where I need to branch out and plant my feet in the legal spectrum, and the experience I’ll get with this firm will no doubt be excellent.

So, depsite feeling like my hand was forced, I think I’m making the best of it.

Plus, my Mom bought me some new cute, businessy stuff to wear.

I’m a girl, I love new clothes.
