Bob Dylan could not have said it better.
My life is about to undergo an enormous change in one week.
I interviewed for a long-term substitute position for the rest of the school year at my boys' school on Tuesday.
I got the call today and was offered the position.
As you may know, teaching jobs in California are obsolete. I never imagined that being the case when I left the profession to stay home with then just Luke, and eventually Charlie and Jack.
However, I have always left the possibility to return to work IF it was at their school. I want to see them during the day, attend their performances, drive together, etc.
The extra income will be beneficial for us as well.
Although, I'm thrilled with the opportunity ahead of me, I am anxious about the change from stay-at-home mom to working mom.
Being home with my boys has been my everything. I am clinging to our routines and way of life as we have known it.
I am anxious about the impact it will have on the boys, our family, and truthfully...me.
But life is about change. It is not easy, but that is the way life rolls.
And as it so happens, we are leaving for Hawaii tomorrow morning and coming home after midnight on the 2nd. I will show up to teach a few hours later.
So I am rolling with it because when we are confronted with change we can cling onto the past or roll with the future.
Yes, I'm rolling.
So Mr. Bob Dylan, you're right. These times they are a-changing.
