Big news in the Oxford house. I turned in my 2 week notice!
January 29 will be my last day of work. I have stressed, debated, discussed, dreamt of, and went back and forth on this decision since I went back from maternity leave. Until Sawyer was about 6 months he was able to come to work with me. As he got older, slept less and found his voice it was too hard to keep him quiet and happy and much more difficult to get work done. For the last 3 weeks he has stayed home with my mom. If I had to have someone else watch my children she is great, but I would much prefer to be with them myself. When I had Karly I didn't have the opportunity to stay home with her. I have the chance to be home with my kids now and I am jumping on it. Of course we will have to change our spending habits some. Paying half of my paycheck for other people to raise my baby just isn't worth it to me. I am hoping Inner Hooker will continue to pull its weight allowing me to stay home full time. I am looking forward to having a little more time to create more patterns. Of course I am looking most forward to being able to spend more time with my kids. I am away from the house about 10 hours a day and hate every second of it. Now the daunting task of learning how to stay on somewhat of a schedule, be productive and keep my house in better shape than I have!
