I am so thankful that Shell has started this meme because I know for sure that I might not have shared some of the things that I have in the past weeks on my blog without it. Thanks Shell!
This week's post is not too serious. Not too personal. Maybe not too interesting. Just being real mom.
So. Here it goes.
I have always enjoyed making my own money. Since I was 16 I had a job. I was a cashier at Safeway. Yeah. I know. G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S! Hey, I was able to buy my OWN clothes and not have to rely on mommy and daddy to hand over their credit cards.
I loved it. I felt independent.
Once I started going to school, I stopped working. But during that time, my mom also got sick. So I became her caregiver and took time off from school. Once she passed away, I threw myself back into work and school.
I trained from 5am-1pm, then I went to class, and then I got a second training job and worked from 6pm-10pm. Not sure I was loving it then. But it kept me and my mind busy from all my issues. I eventually finished school and went on to manage and pretty much worked non-stop up until Will was born. I even taught Kick Boxing when I was 9 months pregnant!
Anyway. Getting to my point. Fast forward almost 9 years. I am a part time in home Personal Trainer and Full Time Mom. I capitalize Full Time Mom because to me it is a job that deserves some respect.
I enjoy that I am able to make money and contribute to our family. I think if I didn't I would not feel good about myself, since I consider myself a workaholic. That's just me. Everyone is different. But for me, having my 15 hours a week to go out and train my clients keeps me feeling good about this whole mom gig.
Also, I don't feel guilty about the amount of time I may or may not be spending blogging and reading other blogs! :)
I love my family. I love my husband. I love my Willsey. And I love working. I can love it all and enjoy my bloggy cake too!
