Career Change

Let me start with a little Green Day:
"It's something unpredictable
but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life."

Well, I have decided to quit my job at the United Way and be a stay-at-home-mom/freelance designer.

This is big stuff for me because I always pictured myself as a working gal but it was just too hard leaving her on the days I did go into the office. I couldn't bear to even think how I would handle doing it 5 days a week. And the thought of daycare! Not for me.

I will miss so many things about working in a office but I would have missed watching my little girl grow up so much more.

So anyway, that's my big news, effective November 30.


  1. you must be a good mom. i love that way.

    hi, i'm from Indonesia and i'll follow ya

  2. I'm so excited for you! I was a full-time stay-at-home-mom when my guys were really little, and it's definitely worth it. I'm back to teaching part-time now that my oldest is in Kindergarten, but I wish I was home full-time again! :) I found that as long as I had projects going on and got out of the house to do SOMETHING every day (grocery store, post office, etc.), then I didn't get cabin fever too bad. OK, I know you don't know me from Adam, but I just had to share my excitment for you! :)

  3. yay, congrats! you are blessed to have the opportunity to leave work and stay at home with Sweet P! I've been a work at home mom and I have loved it. I went back to school when G was almost a year but it's only for a couple of hours every day. We are fortunate enough to where my fiancee's sister can watch him for us when I go to school because like you, I could not even think about putting him in daycare! I am enjoying this time with him and I am looking forward to returning back to work whenever he goes off to school. Yay for you!

    ps. sorry for the very long long comment!

  4. wow! so exciting!

    you won't regret it :)

  5. Thank you for all the encouraging comments!

    Jenny, thank you for the tip on not getting cabin fever! I'm going to try to stay busy and have found that getting out of the house helps a lot!

    Anna Joy, that's so great that you have family near to watch him!!

  6. that is fantastic! i know that decision doesn't come lightly, either.


I know it can be a little scary but go on, I'd love to hear from you!
