a new beginning

Sunday, June 27, 2010

I did something the other day I've been dreaming of for a very long time. 
I resigned.
As of July 31, 2010, I will officially no longer be a newspaper reporter, instead I will be a stay-at-home mom/freelance writer.
I KNOW! Crazy, huh?! It kinda surprised me too. The whole thing came together pretty quickly. I'll fill you in on the details later. What I'm concentrating on right now is that in less than 30 days I will be home with my kids. 
I'll be here when they're sick...
I'll drop them off at school...(except on Tuesdays when Shad's home. ;)
I'll go on their field trips...
I'll pack their lunches every morning (because you KNOW without me working full-time the belt HAS to tighten! ;)
I'll pick them up from school every single day...(except on Tuesdays when Shad's home.)
I'll help them with their homework...(except on Tuesday's when Shad's home.)
I'll fix their after-school snacks...(except on Tuesdays when...well, you know. ;)
And so much more...
I can't tell you how excited I am. It's been a long, complicated road to make this happen. Its been a long time coming...we needed a lot of miracles to make it work...but God is GOOD!

I bet you loved resigning! I know the feeling when I did that with a job I was not happy in.

Good luck in your new business!

I'm so glad for you - and envious, too! Your website looks great; I know you'll be a great success!

Good luck! But doing all that stuff isn't going to leave you much time for writing! Check out "moderate Means" she is going frugal to stay home.
