And in other news, it seems as though I might have quit my job.

For real, yo.

Like... oops, I suddenly don't have a source of income, or a career path.

As in, I'm going to be a stay at home Mama.

At least for a while.

I have really, really mixed emotions about it.

I guess it has always been in the back of my mind, ever since zj was born, that I would like to be able to actually raise this kid that I birthed, instead of sending him off to virtual (albeit kind) strangers every day.

But it never seemed it the realm of... real.

After cj was born, it got sort of exponentially harder to deal, and my attention has been too split to be very good at any of my roles.

So RJ and I talked, and I talked and talked and talked and talked and talked and talked and talked and talked and talked and talked and talked and talked and talked and talked and talked we agreed that I would quit and stay home with the boys.

Easier said than done.

I've worked in what basically amounts to the same job for 16 years, and I've had my current position, with many of the same people, for more than eight years.

I knew the leaving would be hard, but I guess I had no real idea exactly how hard.

So, here I am.

Last day of work yet to be determined.

Plans to be a full time Mama imminent.

Oh hell.  What have I done?

I feel certain there will be much much much much much much more on this to come.


  1. Yay for you! Will you still be my friend even though we won't have the job in common?

  2. I'm very very very very jealous. Though I totally understand the mixed emotions, and were I able to quit my job, I would be looking for something else to employ me "outside" the house fairly damn quickly.

  3. Good luck and congrats! I did the same thing 5 years ago, and now I'm thinking about going back. It's a transition, like anything else, and takes getting used to and rearranging. Also, remember that being with your kids full time is also a job...you have good days and bad days. It's all well worth it - have fun!!
