First Day on the Job and Everyone Survived

That's right, I left my kids for 7 hours today with their daddy and everyone did fine. My first day was nothing too tremendous. It was actually pretty monotonous. I was only trained on one thing. So, for 5 1/2 hours, I attached tags to clothes. Sounds fun, doesn't it? I'm sure that will get better with time. Tomorrow, I work from 4 - close. I'm interested to see how different the night shift is.

When we told my kids about me starting work the other day, they didn't seem too phazed. In fact, Jordan was happy that mommy wouldn't try to kiss him when he gets hurt anymore (BREAK my heart!!). But, I did get to see the love today. Jordan actually told me he was going to miss me and gave me a great big hug. Sydney kept telling me not to leave and that she was going to go with me. Avery (the quiet one) just kept giving me big hugs and telling me she loved me. Morgan seemed to care less :) Oh, those oldest children always have it all together, don't they? Well, daddy actually found out throughout the day that she missed her mom. I can't believe she admitted it, but she did.

So, it was hard leaving them today, but not nearly as hard as making the decision last week. I didn't even cry this morning. I was calm and collected.

Thank you, Lord, for your provision. It may not look the way I envisioned, but your plan rarely does.

Awww....of course they miss and need their mommy!!! I'm so glad that your first day was a success and it all went well! I'll be praying that, while I hope it's short lived, at least while you are there you will have peace, and happiness!!!
