the journey begins

tomorrow is my last day at work. as of tomorrow at 5pm, i am no longer a full-time working mom - i'll be a one-day-a-week for-the-family-business mostly-a-stay-at-home-mom.

this is what i want, but it's also scary. so many people say they go nuts being a sahm. i think i'll be ok, though. my identity is pretty strongly not associated with my career already. i don't hate what i've been doing, exactly, but i don't love it either.

i can't wait to get down to suburbanville. even though it's not going to be easy being a lesbian family in the deep south, i think on the whole our quality of life is going to go way up, after this move.

definitely being together again will be a fantastic plus :) i miss my wife. and i can't wait to take care of my family and live in our new house.

the end of this painful and stressful time of separation and uncertainty and trying-to-sell-the-damn-house is coming. i am ready. i know it won't be perfect but i am ready.

  1. I undertook this journey a little over a year ago. It has its ups and downs, but mostly I am incredibly happy. Good luck! And don't be afraid to reach out to others when (notice I didn't say if) you feel you are losing it. ;)
