Time for a change
I am sick of the legal profession. I am sick of being a provider of such boring information. I am sick of being managed by someone who only talks to me when things are going well on my end. I am sick of waiting for the axe to fall, and hear "you are fired" because of my relaxed attitude toward work. Because really ... I don't care anymore. I have lost the interest in this job that I once had. I used to think that returning to the "regular" work world would depress me.
Will I miss my kids? Heck yes. But I will still see them. When I think about it, with the time that I HAVE to spend at this computer, it is the same thing, except I have to get up to make lunch, and put out small fires every single moment of the day.
Would I love this job more if I could just sit here and work it with no interruptions? No. I have lost the enjoyment of just doing the job. Day in and day out, nothing new. The same old same old. The cases don't even interest me because really .... I don't read them. I skim them for information.
I have hit that point in my life where I WANT and NEED a change, but there is nothing lined up. I need to get some feelers out there. I have already sent a resume over to a place across the street, but of course, in their typical fashion, I have heard NOTHING from them. I don't know if I should overstep the boundaries, and send my resume directly to a friend of mine. He is a VP over there, but that did absolutely nothing for Ace when he applied there. But then, I am a little more marketable than Ace (nothing against him, but I have eight plus years of solid work experience at one place, and a law degree). But obviously that means nothing over there....
I am at SUCH a huge crossroads right now. Who would do all of the kid things? Could I rely on my Mom for the summer months, and some of the days of the week? I am sure, if I paid her, she certainly would consider it. It would be an awesome deal if I could work something out with her.
I just need to do something.
I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
