One Month Ago Today

A month ago today, I quit my job to stay-at-home.  It’s been both exactly what I expected and not what I expected at all.

So far, my schedule has been pretty erratic.  I’d like to think that’s just because I haven’t established a routine, but mostly I haven’t had a chance to start to form one.  The last four weeks have been a mixture of inconsistencies between the schedule for the family and my own work. 

I’d like to hope that a typical schedule will gradually develop, but I am starting to think that anything resembling an average week went out the window a month ago.

For now, it’s just playing it by ear and see how things go.

I worked full-time for more than 6 years since my oldest son was born. Then, I stepped down to part-time for a couple years.

Finally, I decided (and finances aligned) that it was time to join the stay-at-home moms.

Both my boys have now started school full-time (Second Grade and Kindergarten), which seems like an odd time to make the transition.

Or is it?

I’ll Cross That Bridge When I…Oh, Shit There It Is!

Time flies when you are busy living life.  I shouldn’t be shocked that it’s swiftly moving along, since I feel like I have so much to still get ready for!

Just when I feel like I have plenty of time, I keep looking up and seeing that bridge in my life is getting closer and closer.

Then, suddenly, I am at the toll booth in line to cross.
