About a month ago I quit my job. It was very freeing and a very difficult choice. I decided to focus on the education I needed to get my certification as a teacher here in Colorado. I have a degree, but no educational experience or learning. The biggest part of quitting a job meant losing a little bit of money, really, it was only a little bit of money. However, a few hundred dollars can sometimes make a big difference.
We rearranged our budget, let a few things go and made it work. Our savings looks good, all the bills are paid and we even have some left each pay period for fun. However, I had a thought hit me tonight: There is NO Plan B. Huz isn’t going to lose his job, so that’s not a fear. I’m a little overwhelmed with free time. I know, this isn’t really a complaint, but sometimes it is difficult to choose what to do with the free time: sewing, watching shows on NetFlix, reading, crafting, exercising, and there is always school now.
However, there is part of me that thinks a part time job would be ideal, but then I have the boys all summer and I don’t want to deal with childcare. So, here I sit with the realization that there is no plan B. There is going to be no job for me for a while. Unless I get a great offer from Pinterest to check out the humor and kid’s pins for hours everyday. A girl can dream, right?
