Either that or the first day of the hardest job ever, depending on which camp you fall into.
I'm still undecided.
But I do know that I am ready for what this next chapter brings. In honor of the first day of my new career, I've decided to adapt my corporate goals to my stay at home goals. The wording may seem a little strong, but that's what 10 years of editing my goals with a little known trick called "right click - find synonym" will do for you.
It has worked so far through four different jobs so there is no reason for me to think that with a little editing, they can't apply to my stay at home job as well.
If you are lucky, maybe I will have Jeff evaluate me at year end and do a performance appraisal. Don't get your hopes up though, because if it is anything like the corporate world, I will end up writing my own year end appraisal.
If that's the case, here's a SPOILER ALERT - I will probably end up rated very highly.
