After much discussion and deliberation, I’ve decided to go back to work full-time beginning June 1st.
Now before you start sending your sympathies, you should probably know that full-time is considered anything above 75 hours a month. That may not seem like a lot but coming from someone who’s been working 35 hours a month for the last 7 years, this is a big adjustment for me.
Luckily, this won’t affect the girls too much. Girlie Girl is in school all day and Baby Bug would need go to Grandma’s for a few hours every Thursday. Other than that, DH and I can still work opposite schedules so that someone will always be here to help with homework or to take them to various activities. In addition, I could always drop trips on a monthly basis to accommodate any other needs that may arise. That’s one great thing about our job - it’s flexible.
So why the change? We’ve finally decided that moving to a better school district would be in the best interest for our family. To do so, I would need to show a more steady flow of income if we are to have any hope of qualifying for a home loan. Once this is completed, I’ll probably go back to part-time status again.
I don’t know how this will affect my blogging or online boutique, but I’m pretty sure it will be business & fun as usual. At the very least, it should provide me with more entertaining passenger stories!
