So I called my current boss this morning... and said those words that part of me has been dying to say for years.. I am not coming back. There was no shock or even surprise... he knew I had twins and knew that priorities can change, just like that, once babies enter the picture. I never actually worked for him so it was kind of strange. It started out with an awkward so... how are you... then I dove right in... threw in some how are things going questions for good measure and then it was done. Five minutes to end four years.
free... that is the word that I thought of immediately.
yes part of me... a small rather materialistic part of me is frightened... just a little... because this will be a change for our family financially.
but I will be with them everyday
the rest of the day I spent thinking things like...
ashley : 1, hierachy : 0
happiness : 1, mind numbing work : 0
god I wish I could turn back time and tell myself that everything will really be okay... and that I should have believed Andrew when he told me that it would work out... because I stressed and worried for months over this... because I knew the minute I saw our girls that I could never go back
so, so long corporate world, hello to freedom... and days and days and days of time... with my girls
