Well, yesterday, I resigned from my job. It was bitter sweet, really, because I love my job. Working with clients in their home, being surrounded by such gorgeous fabrics and furniture. But, what it comes down to it dollars and cents...and well, in this economy, it just wasn't working out like I had anticipated. There are lots of things I will miss, like getting dressed up everyday, getting to see the insides of so many different homes, the group of people I work with, the fabric discount...I could go on and on! But, this wasn't a quick decision. It took a few weeks to finally make a decision and start making plans. So, there is a lot to look forward to as well. We have decided to not rent our beach house this year. Instead we are packing up the week after school lets out(and lacrosse camp is over) and heading to the shore for the whole summer! Of course, that means a lot of work needs to be done to make it livable for us...lots of painting, sewing, and fun ahead! So, I am back to my "life with lulu and her sisters" which I missed terrible. When I told them about leaving my job they cheered...that really sealed the deal for me!

Oh gosh. That's hard. I'm so glad you have it over and done with, though. Sometimes I think the days waiting to "break the news" are more stressful than the actual event (resigning). Your girls cheering really does seal the deal doesn't it? When I went back to work in the Fall, it didn't phase my boys UNTIL they noticed I wasn't there to just "be" with them. When I told them I wasn't going back after May, they were so excited. I really should be working but they are so much more important. And a summer at the beach???? please. That sounds perfect! Good luck with everything!

I recently made the decision to stay at home myself. It's a very hard decision to make with the economy being like it is.

Good luck! I hope you enjoy the summer at the shore.

Congratulations! Being with your girls this summer will be so much fun! Part of me would like to go back too - but the other part of me loves my job. Stress and all!! I'll expect lots of posts from you to get me through my long days at work! OK?

That is the cutest reaction from the girls! It must have been a hard choice but it sounds like the right one. Congrats!

Well, I've been there and it's so hard, isn't it? Ultimately, though, it's pretty great to be able to be there for your girls (at least I think so!) and I expect a lot more blogging from you now, missy!

Just kidding, I am thinking of you and I know it wasn't an easy decision to come to. And I am insanely jealous of your summer at the BEACH!

Go, you! I can't wait to hear about your work at the beach house. Focus on the positive and the family... that's all that matters in the end.

Life is what you make it said...

Enjoy your new routine and
fun plans!
