Let me start off saying how much I LOVE being a SAHM. It is something that I have always wanted to do...I even went to college and specialized with child development...but, when I finally had the chance to do it, I was not happy. Not happy, and did not appreciate the little things that make it all worth it. I was stuck on all the little things that was driving me crazy, how I was being treated by DH (not intentionally of course, but nevertheless), and the most important feeling...not being able to have my OWN money. $$$$$
In talking to many other moms...working moms, stay at home moms, stay at home working moms, etc. I realized that I need to work for myself...to make me a better mommy. I guess it is going back to my theme for this year...Taking Care Of ME!!!!!!
I worked at lane Bryant two years ago...right before I got preggo with Aidan. I loved it, I had so much fun...it came easy to me...I am a people person (geee, ya think?) and I wore the clothes, and really told people what i thought they would wear. I also like the fact is that we were helping Plus Sized woman love themselves....and that is so important for change...don't you all agree? Women would come in...looking for me...and ask them to measure their bust...or ask me to help them find something really SEXY for their boyfriends birthday. Talk about blaring out "I AM EVERY WOMAN" by Chachakaun!!! I felt good, looked good, started excercising.....but the only bad thing....was spending $$$$$ there...faster than I could make it
Hunny was mad.....
...because he knows I have no impulse control....besides, how can I resist....I was getting 55% off sale items too! I told ya I can rationalize everything!!! After leaving LB in May of 2002, I had a deficit of $1,000+ on my LB charge....bad...Gina, bad spending!!
So, after improving my eating habits, I ending up transferring my Binge eating...to binge shopping.....(to read more, see post on my compulsive overeating ) I decided that I wanted to make my own $$, so my hard working DH would not be pissed off at me all the time, because I was spending our retiremnt $$ on Bra's , undies, and clothes. Well...I got the job, and he was pissed off. HUMPF, thought...talking about not making him happy...or doing no good. I just didn't get it. I mean, I was using my own $$. But he explained, how although I do desearve these things....have some control of it. And don't come home everynight with a new thong
So, to make a long story shorter than what I have just wrote already....my first night back was Wednesday. And you know what, it felt GREAT!!! It was great to take a shower, and actually get dressed up, and actually go some where other than playgroup!!!!! I was happy...and the best thing about it, I get paid...to play. I had way to much fun to get paid.!!!!! So, I thought I would let you all know, that I am makin my own $$$$$> WOHOO. Oh Yeah, everymonth, we have something called Sophie's closet
and friends and family can get 55% off items...so, If you see something you like on line....let me know, and I can get it for ya...!!!!
