Between sick days for my youngest, snow days, half days and holidays off from work and school… I have been busy. Re-evaluating and making big decisions. Oh! I can’t forget that I started taking blog design classes with April Showers.
Right around the same time that I started taking class, my son got sick and I had to call out for 2 days straight, then had a holiday, then had to take off for my oldest son who had a snow day. Yeah, 3 unexpected days off from work, left me with no sick leave and frustrated. This week I had to take vacation days to stay home with my oldest son, because school is out and now it looks like tomorrow will be a snow day..smh. What do you do? As working mothers have you found yourself in the same position?
After many years of thinking of working or not, I have decided not to work. Wow! I resigned yesterday and it felt like a big weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. For the first time in years, I was so excited to go into the office. I am excited to stay home and focus on my family for a while. I worked at my job as a social worker for 8 1/2 years and loved working with my clients and their families. The system on the other hand is another story and at times made my job impossible. I am only human and can only do so much, and right now I am going to take that time to focus on my family. So, I guess I will start writing about the transition from working to being at home. Has anyone left their job to stay home after so many years?
