Major Changes for our Family are Coming!

I have not worked full time since 1996.  That is about to change.

The emotions going through my heart over the last few days has been crazy.  I’ve been home with children for a long time.  Granted, I have had several part time jobs that have kept my skills sharp, but it is a little nerve wracking giving up my free time!  I am not going to lie…..I LOVE my time at home and the quiet during the day.  That is not going to change just a little, but a LOT.  I have accepted a position as a high school receptionist! Talk about chaos!! {pray for me!!}

Aside from the nerves of starting out in a new career, we are super excited to finally have a second income!  We have sacrificed a lot of things for me to stay home.  Many have not understood it, many have questioned it.  But we felt, as I know many of you do, that being home with my children when they were young was the best thing for our family.  But our trade-off has been hard, having to forgo house repairs, live in debt, and live paycheck to paycheck.  It will be such a blessing to get off of THAT roller coaster!

The best part of this position is the schedule.  I will leave early in the morning, but will be home at the same time as everyone else at the end of the school day.  For those who don’t remember, my husband is a teacher, so we will have school holidays and summer vacations off together.

So what does that mean for my blog?  I have no idea!!  For now, I’ll be keeping up as best I can, hoping to continue like nothing has changed!!  ‘Cause I love you all and I just can’t imagine not blogging!
