A Christian Working Mom Blog Once Again :)

Starting on April 27th, I will be returning back to work with my former employer. It's a good thing.  As much as I would prefer to stay at home and be a full-time mom, that  is just not going to happen right now.  Therefore, I am thankful that I am going back to my former employer instead of trying to find a new one. I thought I let you you know :)

Best wishes in returning to your old place. God is good - my girl.

I'm happy for you! I think things definitely work out for a reason. I often fantasize about "not" working but I know I'd still be doing something from home.

There are pluses and minuses to everything in life. I worked until my oldest was born. I missed the people from work, but not the pressure. Your employer has been good to you. This is a blessing. I think that the most important thing is where you place your priorities, not if you are working or not. I know working mothers who have their family as the right priority and mothers who are at home that I wonder what they are doing. Besides, I know from experience that all mothers are working mothers!

Feeling irritated by priviledged stay at home moms. Anybody home???

I stayed home when my kids were little and loved it but it was not easy financially and I worked part time. When they reached school age I went back to work full time.

As I was leaving the house this week I saw the many neighbor ladies with older kids in school walking their dogs and jogging while I was heading to work. Most days I leave before sunrise.

I feel irritated that both in my church and neighborhood I have no one in my situation to commisuerate with.

Everyone stays home and does not really need to because their kids are in school all day.

Most have as much or more than me and they did nothing to earn it.

The most stress they have in their day is doing one load of laundry. Or they just get so tired out waiting in the carpool line in their overpriced gas guzzling SUV. Or they were exhausted when they cut out the 250 much needed smiley faces as a parent volunteer at the school.

Alot of family wealth in my neighborhood.

Parents paying off houses and adult children living off of the sweat of their parents brows. I am just irritated by this. My dad lives with us and we ask him for nothing.

Is anyone else feeling these feelings too or am i just in a weird situation? A working woman in an over priveledged stay at home moms world.
