Oy, I have one kid sick which made me miss another day of work after JUST coming back from a trip. Great.
In the meantime, I’ve learned that our VP of IT announced that the company has decided to outsource all of our IT programs. Hmmmm…..no immediate issues for employment but definitely a change to how things will work, who we will work with and even possible job loss at some point.
I had made the decision to cut back on a lot of things after we got back from our vacation. The trip really showed me how fast time was going and that I really needed to enjoy the time I had with the kids. So I made the decision to put away my dreams of running my own photography business full time, scale back and focus on the job that was paying the bills and the job that – bottom line – wasn’t all that bad.
Sometimes the universe decides to work things out and I may be able to take this opportunity to:
1) fit work into my kids schedules
2) do what it is I really want to do
3) have more time to simply be a wife and a mom
Blessing in disguise? Maybe. We’ll see how things pan out.
