Christine, I am so SO happy for you! How wonderful that this worked out for you -- I just knew something would work out eventually so that you didn't have to be away from Selin all week long. What a huge relief. Let us know how your first week goes!

Alyssa - Thanks! You're so sweet!

Cassie - You're in my thoughts! Don't discount dog walking though. My new boss is 1 of about 4 dog walking businesses in and around my town and she's still successful. Might be worth checking into!

Kate - I hope your DH's job picks up soon or he finds an even better one. I know what you are going through in that dept and with the commute - I commute nearly 1-1/2 hours each way to work via public transit.

Nope, so SAHM gig for me... not unless DH's company really really takes off (as it is they lay him off in the summer, it's so slow then). But I do need to find a job closer to home. I commute an hour each way... so I spend 20 hours a week driving to and from work... very depressing when you think about it that way. Not to mention I have been at the same place for the last 10+ years. Time for a change in scenery.

I'm glad things went well on both ends. Thanks for the idea, however in the area I am in there are so many people already set in those positions. It is something I have considered though. Hopfully one of the three I put in for

Oh, thanks Kate! Will you be leaving your job then to be a SAHM?


I just gave my notice and my boss took it better than I was expecting. She thinks I'm leaving to be a SAHM, I didn't tell her about my new job since she didn't ask and I'd rather her not know where I'm going. I am so glad it is over with - my stomach was in knots all morning but I had to wait to tell her because of meetings she was in. It still all seems surreal to me but I am so grateful everything is changing for the better.

Thanks everyone!


Cassie - I am thinking of you often and hoping you'll find the perfect job. I know you're a pet lover - have you ever thought about pet-sitting/dog-walking??


AFM - (Cross posted from baby chat)


My "interview" went very well today and I accepted the position so I'm giving my 2 weeks' notice tomorrow!! I have no idea how my boss is going to react but I'm very excited about leaving there and starting over fresh. This will be the first job where I have not worked in an office so it will be interesting for me. The owner is super flexible and basically she said I can work as much or as little as I want.


We still have to figure out daycare logistics
