Happy Weekend! I haven’t been around this week as much as I usually am. I have been wrapping up my last week of work and nursing a sprained finger.
Yes, I took a giant leap of faith and quit my job in order to work from home. I tried for a bit to do this the “safe” way, working part time from home while working the regular 9 to 5. This blog has been a part of that. But with the realities of everyday family life and my monstrous 5 hour daily commute, well, there was no other way than to take the plunge and just DO IT! And I am so excited to get started.
Do you know what stress and exhaustion weigh? I have lost 5 lbs since Friday just by sleeping enough and losing the work and commute stress. I must have said at least 10 times yesterday, “I am so happy!” or “today is Saturday, June 4th“, emphasizing that this was the day after my last day, which I have been waiting so long for.
I will be starting this week to chronicle my process, my successes, failures and what I am doing to make this work. I will also be sharing what I have learned from others. It is my wish to make things a little easier for the next person who takes the plunge.
I do have the advantage of being able to do this while not having to take care of small children. My kids are turning 13 and 17 this summer. But I am still a single working mom and I don’t have a spouse to share financial responsibility with. So, I have to make this work.
