back to work.

I am going to have to face the sad reality of going back to work soon. Money is getting painfully tight and pretty soon we’re going to be choking, so I will need a job soon.

But I don’t want to go back to work. I want to stay home with Ryland and be his mommy and take care of him and run errands and marvel at every little thing he does. I hate that Gordon doesn’t make enough money to support us all. Some of you may say “well, you should have waited to have a baby Christa” and I say to you people “shut up” and “mind your business.” Besides, Ryland decided on his own he wanted to be born, and I had no control over his actions.

Stupid money, it ruins everything.

I kind of miss working, I miss having a place all of my own, away from everyone and everything, where my biggest worries are paperwork or getting some project done on time. But I imagine what it will be like to have to leave Ryland, in the care of someone far less superior, and how he will miss me and I won’t be there for him and it kills me. I know he’ll be just fine and he won’t forget I’m his mother, but knowing that doesn’t stop me from thinking it.

But you gotta do what you gotta do and hope everything turns out okay. The next step is finding a job that pays enough and lets me work somewhat flex.

I’ve decided that the reason for the Red Sox success is because of Ryland. What is different this year that hasn’t happened any other year before? One thing: Ryland’s birth. Therefore, Ryland is the savior.

In a few more weeks, we’re off to Boston! Yay!

One of the things are company does is act as a broker to publishers that do "controlled" magazines. Technical and medical and other business publications that are free to engineers,
business managers and owners. Most of their Circulation Managers work from home. They have a cup of java, their computer and a desk and thats their office. When we speak to them you can here the kids screaming in the background and the occaisonal TV blaring.
Circulation Managers manage the circulation size and quality. They work with the advertisors, editors, publishing managers and the BPA Media audit organization. WWW.BPAWW.COM.
Here is a list of companies we work with or plan to work with, most of these companies hire CM's that work remotely from their homes:
Penton, Pennwell, Reed Cahners, Advanstar, Bobit, Thomas Media, Fawcette, Talcott, Babcox, UP Media,Creative Age, Pfingsten,Access Intelligence, Health Forum,LRP, MBL,Business News Pub, Simmons Boardmann,TT Pub, Meister Pub, VNU,Thomas Register, Hanley Wood, Oracle, Crain Comm, Edgell, Cygnus,EW Williams,Jobson,Pearson, Rimbach, Adams Business,101 Comm, CMP,National Journal,Horizon House,and many more. Check out their websites and send them a resume. Then maybe you can get a job with relevance to your experience , interests and education (Communications, publishing etc.)
