I've been wanting to write this post for a couple of weeks, but I waited.
I waited until I could tell the people that needed to be told, you know, just in case they read my blog. [Doubtful, but possible]
If you follow me on twitter, you may already know, but...
I quit my job.
I didn't just up & quit, though.
Last Monday I put in my letter of resignation, and felt an overwhelming sense of joy and relief wash over me.
For the sake of staying professional, I'll just say that the biggest reason that I decided to call it quits was because my babysitter is PCSing & daycare is just too expensive. 
The budget will be a little tighter, but I think it will ultimately make for a happier momma & baby.
So there we go. A single income family, once again.
I am excited to get back to teaching/learning with Adelei. I'm excited for library visits, afternoons at the park, play dates, and the hour or two each day I'll get to myself while baby girl is taking a nap!
And of course I'm excited to get back to my crafting. I've missed it so much!

You'll be fine- it sounds like you have really worked through a budget that will work for you, and that's half the battle. :)

That's such a hard decision to make - but I'm sure that you will be so happy with the outcome. :) It sounds like you are very happy with decision - and that is what matters.

Hope you're enjoying being a stay at home mamma. I bet your baby girl is loving her time at home with you :)

So it's been a little over a month - how's it going? Do you just love it? I sure wish I was brave enough to do it!!
