1st week at my new job...

So, yep it's official I got a job! Still after years of not "working outside the home" I feel I  need something that works with the school schedule so, I can pick up my son from school-etc. I looked into /applied for a few part-time jobs but, it turns out the best option that worked out is working within the school system. I guess it's good working with kids that they do a thorough screening- drug test (even if it took me 3 times to pee enough ;), got my fingerprints on file, and filled out about 10 pages worth of paperwork- etc. so, after all of that  -I got the job! Working as a lunch assistant at an Elementary school -it has been an adjustment working through my normal lunch time and just helping take care of a lot of kids at lunch and recess. Ups and downs -from a kid freaking out because he got ketchup on his plate to the playground shenanigans but, of course there's those moments when it's just the right temperature during recess and the sunshine and sound of kids playing makes you feel all nice and warm. Sometimes it feels like you really are helping -even if it is just to open a milk carton or tie someone's shoelaces. All of it just rewarding and exhausting -ready to enjoy the weekend/ rest up and start again Monday!   Thanks to anyone who still reads this  :)
