I got a new job and started training this week. I am really excited about it. I had a lot of trouble focusing and filling out the forms though. From what I understand this can be common with bipolar disorder. But I got it done, had a fantastic interview, and had my first day of training. The best part of this job…I can do it mostly from home so I can still be with my kids. I’m going to be an on-call supervisor. I will have a pager, cell phone, and laptop. I will handle any call offs and shift adjustments as well as any emergencies that come up over the weekends.
Other good news…the dance recital is over and I survived. My kids did a terrific job on stage and had a great time. My daughter was notified that she was accepted into the company at her dance school as well. This means more classes and competitions, but she is thrilled. She worked hard for it and I’m so proud of her.
The kids have also started horseback riding lessons. They’ve had two lessons so far and they are having a blast. They got to trot today. My son had a look of pure joy on his face. I was a little put off by the teacher today though, when she refered to my son as mentally handicap. He does have a short attention span and a lack of maturity, but he is as intelligent or more so than other kids his age. He has a slight developmental delay due to a hearing loss at 6 months. His hearing, however, was corrected at 13 months and he has caught up to other kids his age in most areas. This kind of ticked me off, but I did let it slide because she handles him well and I like that.
Anyway…my hubby just brought me some ice cream and we have a night alone without the kids. So I’m off to enjoy a little grown up time.
