As much as I’d have liked to, I haven’t been able to post because I’ve been too freaking busy! I been doing a lot of soul searching for the past three months of being back at work. I’ve wanted to say more about the whole experience, but between baby bottles, sitters, illnesses, blizzards, family loss and just overall high level of stress and lack of sleep, there just hasn’t been a lot of time.
Blizzards knocking down our tree and power was out for days!
Not to complain entirely, the peanut is amazing, the family recovering, our house survived the storms and I still got to design very cool stuff for a living. However, something’s gotta give and very lucky for peanut, I’ve decided to leave my job and stay home for the time being. Not that I was making much money between daycare and the commute anyway, but at least we can make it work for now. Maybe I will get to do some freelance work for my some to be former team, I would love to, but that’s yet to be seen. In the meantime, I get to have a little bit more balance- I choose my family and realize I really can’t do it all, and do it all well. Since I’m not one to half ass’ it I had to make a decision. When I’m not focused on being a mom I will work on expanding my world is a designer which I am very very excited about. Whether its continuing to work on our fabulous house in the making, reinvesting in my painting, getting back to more print design, doing more interior stuff or blogging…it’s all good.
The babe will help me stay creative…
Tomorrow is my last day at my company. I’ve been there close to 8 years. With that much time, there is a sense of investment so there’s a part of me that’s sad to go regardless of my amazing adventure ahead. We’ll see how I feel when I wake up one Monday tho and don’t have to drive two hours in traffic… I may feel better then.
