I quit my job!!!

I am so relieved. I quit my job Monday morning and feel FREE!!!

It was no secret that I did not like my job but hey, it was an income right?? So I have wanted to quit for awhile now, but money was a no go.

On Saturday, we took the boys to a movie and on the way home they start talking about how cool it would be if I would stay home and that kind of talk. To be honest, it broke my heart.

So Sunday night, I go to a friends house. I spill my heart out to her about life and that includes my job situation. I get home around 10ish, kids are in bed, hubby is waiting up for me. We watch some TV and he drifts to sleep.

About 1am, I find my self shaking him awake. We needed to talk. We needed to pray. We needed to go over budgets. We sat there till 3am, going over and over and over the budget with all kinds of different scenarios, we prayed and we talked.

(side note: we have not had a "normal" conversation in weeks, so this was a blessing in it self)

About 3:05am is was decided that I would quit my job. And yes, I do know that right now job market wise is not a good time to quit, but it was a good time to quit for my family.

And trust me, we have a plan B, a plan C, a plan D and so on. We know life is going to be tight till I start getting an income again. We are prepared for that.

So I have to say...goodbye Target...goodbye Starbucks......goodbye brand name food......goodbye yummy restaurants...till we meet again AND I am positive I will meet you all again in the near future.

But for right now I am going to focus on my family, my home, my God and my friends.
