The Weekend So Far

Saturday, February 09, 2013

I had my first week at BL where I showed a gain due in part to TOM. It was only .4, but still a bummer since I don't get my points for losing. This week was a REALLY bad points week for me since I didn't do the fitness challenge (didn't realize I was supposed to start Monday and do it everyday and chose not to lie about doing it everyday), didn't lose weight and therefore didn't end up in the top 7. That's 8 points I missed out on. Oh well, next week will be better.

I did talk to DH about the job thing, though I had dropped hints prior to this. He had noticed I wasn't happy but he's not one to say much about stuff like that. He hates confrontation. Anyway, once I told him how I was feeling and my desire to come home and make the necessary sacrifices he said that was fine since it's more important to him for me to be happy than to have the extra income. We know how to live on just his income. We did it for 7 years before I went back to work in January 2011. I guess I just didn't want him to be disappointed in me for giving up before we were debt free. He said it'll work out and he understands. I'm so thankful I married a good man.

All that being said, I will continue to work for a few months since my boss and his wife are taking off most of March for vacation and then have family coming in June and need me to work extra. My intention will be to quit in August so I can get DS and I prepped for another school year. That's my other happy news. I talked to DS and told him he needed to decide about school for next year (homeschool or public school) pretty soon so we can start planning for it either way. He said he already knows he wants to homeschool next year and then maybe try going back to PS for high school. I am so excited to get another year of homeschooling with him! and to be home for it!!

    Seems like you had a very good result of your conversations with your hubby & your son. I'm so glad that you are going to get to leave the working world and focus on your family and your self. These are all happy things. I wish that my grandchildren were home schooled.
