I can't believe I have only posted twice in 6 months. Has it really been that long? And have I really been that...well, absent? Time sure does fly by. But I don't need to tell all of you other moms how quickly the days pass, especially when the hours, the minutes, the seconds are spent working, caring for kids, cleaning, doing laundry, cooking, shopping, and all other things that it takes to be a good wife, mother, daughter and friend. I guess "good Mommy blogger" just didn't make my list much in this new year!
But I hope to change all that. Remember in my last post when I mentioned I had this great "new" job (I started back in May 2007)? Well, I just resigned from that great new job. Yes, I had only been in the position for a year, and yes it was a great job, and at a level that I had spent many years working to get to, but my husband was getting crushed by the mounting work from his business. In March, when my husband couldn't take one full day off while on our family vacation, it became glaringly obvious that if I was going to be directing any business, it should be his.
So 3 weeks ago, I submitted my resignation and as of May 1st, became an official employee of my husband's. While this is an incredibly scary and exciting change for us (I had a senior management position with nice pay and all of the health care benefits), we are hopeful that with my support my husband will be able to replace my income and then some!
But even more importantly, we really didn't feel like living the next 20 years always wondering "what if" -- it's far better to fail with no regrets knowing you gave it your best, then to always wonder. And if we can grow his business into a family business, then there certainly won't be anything to regret!
