well, the work day is over, and i’m now officially on-call 24 hours a day with my new and thrilling career as a home manager/mother/chef/wife – all things i could only barely keep my head above water trying to do with a full-time outside of the home job. (by the way, after these past few months, i have gained a much higher respect for working moms, and i had a pretty high respect for them before.) i’m so excited i’m almost giddy today, which i think is a pretty good sign.
i have to say, though, that the last 4 1/2 years of working at the Ranch has really been pretty great. i started working there one week after i moved to columbus, and being a part of such a good organization has really shaped my experience here. so, i’m expecting that i will spend some time grieving the loss of my place in the Ranch family. i’ve learned so much, and been really lucky to have incredible supervisors in all three of the positions i held there, and really great teammates the entire time, too. but, as i told my coworkers today, “i love you. i just love my baby more.”
with that, i should go check on dinner.
