Thank goodness, tax season is over. This was a good experience. I took a tax course last fall with H&R block just because I liked to do our taxes and liked to learn more. What I didn’t know was that it was more serious than I expected. It was surprising that I liked the subject more than I thought I would. They were hiring at the end of the course so I ended up working for them for the past three months as a tax associate.
The good part of this job was that I had very flexible hours; I only worked weekends and a few weeknights. Well at the end, it was hard on the family and me because I wasn’t there all weekends. However, it was a good thing to do. I worked with wonderful people, and enjoyed what I was doing even when it was stressful. I met new people and learned a lot about many things from writing and blogging to childcare, to trading stocks.
I’m happy that I have this experience, but I know at the same time how much I had to give up being able to do this. Most of the nights I was too tired to even think of writing anything. I had to give up few of my small projects around the house. The days I worked were especially hectic, as I wanted to spend as much time as possible with kids and have dinner ready for them ahead of time so when daddy was home I could run to work. Well I don’t have any regrets this was a chance I had to grab; now I’m free again to do what I was doing before. I’m tired though and right now, I’m not sure I’ll go back next year. We’ll see what happens.
Right now, I’m happy life is back to normal and very existed to start writing again.
