This is my Me day, post 2. To see the first one, go here.
Now we are going to enjoy a cup of virtual coffee. Mine will be decaf with almond milk. Coconut milk is good too. Mmmmmm. GULP! Now I need a refill!!
Okay, settled in with our coffee. If we were really sitting down to coffee we would talk about you first. It cannot be all about me, right? Then I would tell you about my plans to quit my job. June 3rd will be my last day. There, I said it. This is rather risky because, after all, I am google-able. I kinda don't want to get the boot before June, I want to wait until the kids are out of school. The way I see it, if I don't make a single dime, I can live for 4 months with what I have saved. I don't want to burn it up now.
"Are you crazy?!?"
you might ask. Well, yes, I suppose so. After all, we are in a recession. I don't care what the "experts" say about being in recovery since 2009. I am just not seeing it. I feel crazy for even considering walking away from a steady for now salary (there is a very good chance that I will be laid off soon anyway. But that is later in the summer. It just doesn't jive with my own timeline). My dilemma is this: I spend 5 hours a day in the car. I am finding myself more frequently depressed (my old boss called me on this just a few minutes ago. I had no idea that I was giving off a vibe.), exhausted and I just cannot shake this flu. Its been 10 days now. This isn't a pity party, it is just me justifying walking away from my job. But the big thing is - I know full well that I am headed toward a heart attack if I keep up with this pace. My adrenal system is super funky right now and I cannot make right. My plan is to work from home and I am super excited!!! I am already getting my feet wet with Ebay resales and I am going to open an Etsy store. And, fit in some freelance work if I should need to. Am I scared? No, not really. I have taken huge chances such as this before and it has worked out. I do have a very healthy dose of nervousness but mostly excitement. I cannot wait!
I have been working on my sewing skills so I make good, high quality merch for my store. I found this skirt at the Salvation Army and totally fell in love with the urban camo print! But it was about 5 sizes too big. I took it in and even though it still ended up a size too big I love how easy and comfy it is. My daughter did a "double take" this morning when she saw my outfit, she thought it was too much.
|Um, yeah. I am still working on the timer option. I suppose I could pull the tripod from the trunk of the car. That makes too much sense tho. But you get the idea. Skirt, red silk cardi and leather boots all second hand. Black tee from Kohl's.|
|Its officially spring. The swallows showed up yesterday. Yes, there are birds in this photo, just look closely.|
