It's not easy. It took a lot of agonizing, soul searching, a few talks with The Man of the House, some praying, and some waffling before I finally came to a choice about what I wanted to do. After almost 13 years at paying job, I am ready to step out of the office and back into my home. I will tend to my family, my home, my chickens, my garden, and my yard. I will find ways to trim down our household budget by saving on things like electricity and groceries. I will provide more home cooked meals and snacks for my family instead of throwing together some processed something at the end of the day. I will foster my creative side by trying to sell some of my crochet and sewing projects. I'm ready to be the manager of my family.

Step Four: Give notice at paying job.
This was supposed to happen last Thursday. I had myself all psyched up for the moment. Unfortunately supervisor was out of office all day so this will have to wait until later this week. Yes, I am excited - and a little nervous.
