I've decided to look for a job.
Yep, it's time to get back into the old work force and start adding a little bit of extra money to the family coffers.
So tonight I started to put together a resume.
My resume looks pretty enough, but if you actually read it through you'll find there's sort of a
big huge enormous gap in it.
I've been a stay at home Mom for eleven years.
I've done some writing work, but I must say when I put it on paper the whole thing looks a little bit uh, sparse.
Now I know I've been pretty busy in those years – we've lived in three different countries, we moved six times, and I've raised three pretty terrific kids. I've been more than busy.
But on paper? It doesn't look quite as impressive as it sounds when I talk about it.
So, I'm off to search the internet to try and find suggestions on how to make all these child rearing, busy moving years look impressive on a resume.
I see that the local paper needs delivery people, maybe I'll start there. I wonder if I can still throw a newspaper hard enough to hit a front door from the street.
That might be fun and if I did that at least I wouldn't have to dress up.
Oh, does one still wear suits to interviews? Assuming of course that I can get one. I guess I should google/look that up too. Humph.
This should be an interesting adventure. I'll keep you posted.
