I have some more great news, but I didn't want to overshadow TC's good news with my good news. I am quitting my job. I have my reasons, which I will explain to you in a few weeks. And I'm not planning on looking for gainful employment. I'm planning on staying home and being a homemaker. It's my dream job, and I am immensely excited about it. Just think of all the things I can accomplish, all the talents I can develop, all the wonderful ways in which I can manage our household... I am really REALLY looking forward to it.
Now, you have to know that I wouldn't share news without at least a bit of a whine, so here it is:
The majority of people who find out that I am going to be a homemaker tell me, in these exact words, "What are you going to do all day. You're going to be so bored."
If there is one thing I know about myself for sure is that I do not like to keep a tight schedule. So the idea of having free time all day is not overwhelmingly tear-inducing-boredom. It is freedom.
Anyway, my point is that I'm quitting, I'll be staying home, and I'm excited. And I won't be bored. And just because people have been telling me that I will be bored, out of spite, I am going to make sure that I'm never bored. (I like to set the bar high.)
