Well Mark says I do.
Something about money....me spending it...blah blah blah.
I say, "In due time".
Mark says: Before I get home.
I 'tried' to start working shortly after I got here. Maybe not-so-surprisely, things were a little crazy trying to settle in. My goal to start working changed to 'when he left after R&R'.
I went through the steps. I made flyers. Had business cards printed. I even updated all of my information with TRICARE.
Then, in November, I received one referral for a family that I love working with.
Although my flyers are still circulation and my business cards are still out there, I haven't had any referrals since.
I have said, "it is a sign". (as in: I am not supposed to work right now. I am supposed to be here for our children...to mold and shape them!)
Mark's retort is probably, "a sign I am trying to avoid working".
I have to be honest...I have been secretly glad about that I barely work. I already don't know where the days go. I can't imagine actually trying to cram reports and appointments in. Besides, who would taxi #1 and #2 around for their extra-curriculars?
Now...I am beginning to panic about a lot of things that I have to do before Mark comes home. Finding a job happens to be like number 22 on my list.
Unfortunately, I think it is number 3 on Mark's list of important things I should do before he comes home (having us all at the airfield is number 1, and planning a vacation for him and I is number 2).
Mark's arrival home is on the horizon and my 'deadline' is looming.
I'll try to humor him and acquiesce to his list.
Wouldn't you know it...Tomorrow I have three appointments scheduled! Two new referrals that I acquired only today. Apparently, these happen to be blind referrals from TRICARE.
It's funny...as much as I didn't think I wanted to work, I am really excited to meet these two new families tomorrow. So family and friends, if you know of any families around Fort Drum looking for in-home speech therapy....
I am open for business again.
This time for sure.
