Sticking it Out

I have thought off and on over the summer about giving up my part-time job at the library. Working full-time plus raising four children on my own (every other week when they're not with their dad) plus three cats and a dog plus a new relationship with a very wonderful man plus a part-time library job is quite a lot to fit on my plate. However, I have such fun during my shifts at the library that it doesn't feel like work. Also, the bit of extra money makes a difference each month.

I have come to the conclusion that I'm not ready to resign. My supervisor was pleased to hear of my decision and has asked if I'd be willing to help out with the odd Sunday storytime. Of course I agreed - I absolutely adore doing the storytimes with the children. I should know my new shift schedule in a few weeks.

It's a blessing to have a job you enjoy. :)

If you have a job you enjoy, don't give it up without a fight!

Seaspray, you're right. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have a job they enjoy.

Kim, my first clue should have been that I was having such trouble deciding if I wanted to give up the library job. When will I learn to listen to my instincts? Yes, it will be hectic, but it's a happy hectic and I always come home from my library job with a smile.
