Well some of you are aware that I have been struggling with my current job. I have really enjoyed what I have learned and I love working with the kids. But I struggle with the hours. Many times I don't leave work until after 6pm and I start at 7:45am.
I have always said that I am a mother first. With Little S starting school in the fall I need to be able to go to his programs at school. Currently I am unable to take any time off to go to activities. This really bothered me.
So I turned in my letter of resignation this morning. It was one of the hardest things I have done in a while. I Really Really enjoy the staff I work with and I really enjoy what I am doing. But I have learned that sometimes in life you have to do what you have to do and not always what you want to do.
I interviewed for a position in early March and hadn't heard much back from them. They contacted me Thursday and told me that they finally made a decision and that they would like me to accept the job. At first I said yes. Then I went back and forth for a while about what to do. In the end after talking to Hubby, I decided that I had to take this position.
It comes with better hours - Mon - Fri 8-4:30. Better money and health benefits. And there is flexibility there if I need to take care of the kids.
I will finish out this week at the Dr.'s office and start next Monday at the new place. I normally would give a 2 week notice, but the doctor is going to be out of town next week and we don't have patients anyhow.
I told a few of the girls myself and the others have found out through the grapevine. I thought that some of them would be upset that I am leaving, but surprisingly most of them are very encouraging. And some are even jealous.
I want to thank all of you that have been praying for me and rooting me for the last few weeks.
