So. The big news.
Well, I put in my three week notice, but you get the point.
I know what you are thinking, big friggin deal? You start a new job and life goes on. Blah, Blah Blah.
Nope. I am not starting a new job. I have no job waiting. I am quitting work, and for the summer spending the time with my two boys and being a housewife. Then I am going to maybe have hip surgery (again), then I am going back to school. All the while blogging and writing like a frantic monkey on meth. Have.never.had.this.much.time.to.write.
The thing that makes me happy and feel personally fulfilled. <——-The Meth Monkey thing.
This is big because if you knew me, you would know I have NEVER NOT worked. Ever. I began work at age 12. Working for my Grandfather behind the counter of his store. Then at 16 I interned at an office locally and waited tables. At 17, the damned Monday after graduation, I started my first 9-5. Then from there it was basically a new job every 3-6 years. Each one moving up the ladder. Leading me to Accounting then Finance.
Then 2008 happened. I took a major hit going from a Manager at a very nice salary, to a peon with a crappy hourly salary with a two hour commute. I have done this now for three years.
After the hubs and I crunched the numbers it just didn’t make sense to send the boys to day camp (PRICEY Motherfucker Day camps are) while I spend tons in gas and wear and tear to Prince Valium to make jack shit.
So we decided I would quit.
This is why I restarted this blog a week or two back.
I am going to be documenting going from a 9-5 day job for 19 years. to being a Stay at Home Mom.
Heyyyyyyyyy, wait. Don’t be that way. This won’t be a mommy blog. I mean those are great and all, and I have learned many crafts and recipes, but this is going to document the journey.
And I am damned excited/scared/freaked out/stoked/completely unprepared.
This shit should be interesting.
It just gets better from here.
Or I go down in flames.
Either way, it makes for good reading. Don’tchathink??
Holy shit no pictures.
As always,and stay tuned.
