November 7th 2011 started a new chapter in my life – a “real job.” After 18 years of being a stay at home mom with two kids, one in high school and one in college, who now only see me as an ATM and a pain in the butt, I decided that it was time for me to go back to work.
I knew that this was going to be a big adjustment for me, and I also wondered how the transition would be for me. I was always used to the chaos of kids, homework, sports, trips to the store for that project my son forgot about, AGAIN. The last piece of an outfit my daughter had to have or she would look like a total dork and everyone at school will laugh at her, (teenage girls’ melt-downs are not fun or pretty to watch.)
As I arrive to work my first day I am warmly welcomed by not only by my two legged friends but my new and wonderful four legged friends. When Danieal told me that KolbeCo was a pet friendly environment, she was not kidding! I had to count twice just make sure I got the total right – yup, there are six dogs here, sometimes more when we have fosters! What’s awesome is that they don’t talk back to me and ask me for money. What’s even funnier is that they are actually better behaved and quieter than my own kids. I’m really going to like my job!
