Just about a year ago I lost my sales position due to a halting economy and low sales volume. Somewhere in the mist of feeling overwhelmed by the idea of being unemployed, contemplating what to do next (career wise) and sipping coffee with my neighbors. I knew it was time to re-invent myself.
After diligently researching the Internet and entering my daily duties, this is what I found: Stay at home mom, Homemaker, Housewife, Domestic Goddess and Domestic Engineer.
Bingo, I was now a Domestic Engineer, I created a business plan to effectively and efficiently manage my household. My business plan was named The SassySaver .
When the hubster arrived home from work, he asked the usual, "how was your day"?
My response: I have a new job title, honey.
He has selective hearing and heard "I have a new job".
Hubby: that's great, what is your new job?
Me: Domestic Engineer
Hubby: "YOUR A DOMESTIC WHAT"???
I sat him down and explained my new job title and Sassy Saver plan. The look on his face was priceless! I had finally convinced him once and for all I was Crazy!!
Looking back now a year later, losing my job was stressful and embarrassing, but a blessing in disguise! It only took me a short time to realize how hilarious my kids are and that I had lost touch with what I was really working for...my family.
Accepting the position of Domestic Engineer came with a priceless package and unbeatable incentives!! I highly recommend it, to anyone up for a challenge.
