Becoming a Stay at Home Wife
Well I have an announcement to make...I am going to try staying home for a bit. I provided my notice last Friday and May 23rd is supposed to be my last day at work.
I have very mixed emotions about this decision. On one hand I am very excited about all of the opportunities that I will have doing this. On the other hand I will miss the extra income and feel like I am giving up a piece of who I am. I have always defined myself by my career, some will understand this and others will not. I have worked hard to get to where I am at. I probably have not shared in the past but I work in Human Resources as an HR Manager and this year I recently passed my PHR. I love my job and have a passion for it but I am ready for a break. I am ready for a new adventure!
I just keep telling myself that the world is my oyster. There are so many different things that I can do now. I can finish up projects around the house, cook more, focus on losing weight and volunteer. Hopefully I will also get the opportunity to blog more.
Maybe I need to blog about a year in the life of a stay at home housewife. A crazy HR lady housewife.
Maybe it sounds like I am ungrateful. Many people would kill to be able to stay home. I am grateful, I promise. Sometimes it is just hard to envision yourself in another role. Even though this is the role that I want to be in right now.
My Husband and I thought long and hard about this decision before making it. So please continue to follow me here as I transition in to a stay at home housewife.
Let the transition begin and wish me luck!
