Today is my first official day at my new job. And my new boss -- well, she's tough. She called me at 7:45 a.m., already needing something. What a way to start my morning! Thankfully, the sun is shining and apparently we are in for an 80 degree day, so I cannot complain.
So here's the scoop on the new boss: she's super sweet, and I can already tell she really appreciates me. But she has a crazy side, and can be very demanding. When she needs something done, it better be done fast. My boss has a friendly smile, and is short with dirty blonde hair and two different colored eyes -- one hazel and one blue. I think she is quite pretty, even though she is a bit pudgy. She's also a bit of a mess, needs constant attention, can fly off the handle without any warning and is a very poor communicator. She screams...a lot. It seems as if I will always need to read between the lines.What have I gotten myself into?
Some people advised me not to take this job, that it would be challenging and stress-inducing. Others applauded my choice, and some even expressed jealousy. Everybody seriously had an opinion, and most were very willing to share. I've been told this gig is a career killer, will make me feel isolated or even depressed, will fail to keep me stimulated, and won't earn me enough money in the long run. I've also been told it is the most rewarding job I could ever do. And that's the reason I've made the difficult, yet easy, decision to work full time for the world's greatest boss -- Madelyn.
Yep, it's official, I'm a stay-at-home mom.
