First off, I just wanted to thank you all for the support when I posted on the Big Decision last week. This has not been an easy thing to decide upon.
As of today, I have given my notice and am a proud (if scared) Stay At Home Mom (SAHM).
I don't think that it's quite sunk in yet and probably won't until I have turned in the company car, computer, printer, sales supplies, etc. Well, and when the paychecks stop coming. That will probably make me realize the full scope of the decision that I've made.
But when it came down to it, when we listed all of the pros and cons, it just seemed in everyone's best interests that I not return to work. The straw that finally broke the camel's back is when they added the state of Alaska to my territory (I only had the northern part of Washington state before). That would have been about 50% travel, and I just couldn't do that to my son, my family, myself.
So, join me, won't you, as our lives change once again in a pretty dramatic fashion.
