Returning to substitute teaching

On my quest to get a freelance assignment or find a j-o-b; I turned in an application to be a substitute teacher in my county. I used to be a substitute teacher about five years ago and two years before that.

Well, I was notified via mail that I was accepted and would be attending the workshop in May since the February one is full. I have mixed feelings about this. I guess I should say first: Yippee! I'll be making a little money.

Okay. Now for the mixed feelings. Working as a substitute again will allow me to get out of the house more and spend time away from the baby. BUT I'll be away from the baby. It'll bring more money into the house. BUT I'll get even less done at home then I do now. It'll take me away from what I love to do most and that's writing. There's no but on that one.

I guess every sacrifice comes with a price and I'm sure this'll work out. Given my personal circumstances, I can't help but feel a little scared and resentful that I even have to do this.

SIGH. But, oh well, as a mom -- and A WOMAN! -- I'll do what I have to do.

I am woman hear me roar! LOL
