My people know and so do my clients, so now I can share. I gave my notice at the ad agency where I work. My last day will be May 18. We’ll be moving into the new version of our old house May 19. I’m not one to waste time.
Things have been strained for a while between home and work. Last week, my little family broke down (emotionally, anyway). None of us can take it anymore. I really like my job, but it needs more hours per week than my family needs me to work. There was no more give in either situation. In the past six months, I’ve had the flu, serious migraine issues and my team of doctors all recommend the same thing: less stress.
Some folks have talked to me about other jobs that have more flexibility. I’ve talked to others about freelance work. I’ve got a couple of projects I really want to work on, but haven’t made the time before. Not sure what’s gonna happen with any of those for sure, but it’s all gonna be fine. I’m going to get my family back home and situated and probably spend some time at the pool this summer. No matter what, we are going to be quieter and healthier.
There will be less dining and drinking out, but I’ll have a FABULOUS entertaining space at the house. I fully expect my friends to drop by and bring some wine for some proper porch sitting.
