I was a daycare provider for a year and a half and just quit in the end of June. Before that I was an insurance agent and worked for GEICO. I loved the job, it was just so hard to be away from my newborn baby. Kobe was 8 weeks old when I returned to work and I lasted for 4 months before I quit to stay home with him.

I really enjoyed getting to be home with him every day. It was so rewarding getting to see all his firsts and getting to be there everyday when he woke up or went to sleep. I wouldn't trade that for the world.

Now my baby is 2 years old and it is time for me to go back to work. I applied at a security company and they were not willing to pay me enough so I turned the job down. I was kind of depressed thinking damn what do I do now?? Then I was asked why I didn't go back to GEICO and I said that I thought they would not hire me back. When I resigned my manager tore up my resignation letter and asked me to please stay. I was given a 6 month leave of absence and told that I could come back at anytime.

Well I decided to give it a shot and apply at GEICO. I got a call from them last week but they called my husbands cell phone and when I tried to call them back I got a voicemail. I was kind of negative about it thinking that they would not call me back. Well this morning they did call me back and she asked me to please come in for a face to face interview on Thursday!!! I am so excited, the money is good, I love the job and I could not ask for more.

So please keep me in your thoughts and prayers on Thursday and keep all your fingers and toes crossed for me. I will let you all know how it goes. If I get the job I start on September 28th and I will work Mon-Fri during the day and then after 11 weeks of training I will start working from 1:30-10pm. The best part of working nights is that I get night differential!!! That is almost $2 more an hour!!! Ok let me stop now. Fingers and toes crossed that I will have good news on Thursday.
