Nervous about starting work...

My uncle asked me to work seasonal hours at his chocolate shop. His place gets very busy during holidays. I'm worried about my low energy problem (that's my biggest issue during winter). We could use the money and I'll work around kids' school hours...Guess I'll start for Easter. I have only worked part time from home since having my oldest; he's almost 17. I'm nervous!

Well, the good thing is he's your uncle, so everything should work out all right.

It will be ok. Just take it a day at a time. If it becomes overwhelming just talk to your uncle.

I know what you mean, I feel the same way.  I guess everyone gets nervous.  I also w/be starting  to work on Monday after being layed off for 7 mos.  All I can say is go in there, take a deap breath and do the best you can.  Best of luck.

Try not to think about it so you don't get yourself worked up. Its still awhile away. I know I obsese on everything so I have to put things in the filing cabinet in the back of my mind until it is just about time.

Actually he asked me to go in for a few hours on Monday! I'm trying to not obsess...Thanks.
