Turning the Page

Today marks a new chapter for me. After recent events, I made some major decisions. One of which starts today. I am now a part-time employee. As of today, I work 20 hours per week at my job, and will be phasing out of it altogether within about 3 months. Part of me is thrilled. I will have more time for my family. I will be freed up to add to my education, I will be able to focus more and more on and finally begin offering services (and finish the website, haha!). Woot! This is all really, really exciting for me and I'm chomping at the bit to get going. Then there's the other part of me - the one who wallpapers and furnishes her ruts - change is scary. How much will cutting my paycheck (and then eliminating it) hurt? Can I really do this and make it work?
Thankfully, I have an amazing husband who not only believes in me, but he believes in my goals and my dreams. We're going to make it work. We're going to make it shine. 

In the meantime, on the Daily Cooler page, you might notice that the cooler's are suddenly.... "light". Lol. I'm in the office from 8:30 to 12:30, so I only need breakfast and snack 1 packed. The rest of my food is waiting for me at home. I'll continue to post the full day's menu along with the photos.

So... today, I raise my water bottle and toast Scary Change. ;-) Here we go!

  6. Congratulations Chelle! I wish you the best of luck and I know you and your family will make it work. You've the will and determination to make it a huge success! I was there was for a few years until economy made me go back behind that ugly desk 40 hours. I can't wait to be back to where you're heading. You are motivating me to look ahead!
