After months and months of deliberation, I finally came to a conclusion about 2 weeks ago.
I spoke with my (most amazing) boss (EVER!!) last week about resigning. It was a difficult thing to do as I really love the people I work with. The problem is that I am bored with my job. I like the freedom I have here at the company, but it feels like I am wasting hours every month, not doing much. I could be at home and focusing these wasted hours more productively on my boys and my own business Felt So Good. My boss is a family man and understood how I felt.
It has been decided that I will be kept on a sort of retainer for the company, whereby I will still be doing work for them, but in my own time, from home. This will give me the freedom to focus on FSG, raise A2 myself and spend more time with A1 after school. A1 will now only attend half-day at school. We will have the afternoons together to swim and paint and play and nap and actually do things.
From the 1st of February, I will be a WFHM – Work From Home Mom. I cannot tell you how happy I am about this. How privileged I feel to be allowed to do this. How lucky I am to have been given this opportunity. I will actually be able to see my boys grow and be instrumental in shaping them into the men I would like them to become.
