A Job-Related Revelation

I know, I know, it has only been a few days.  I need to give it more time to fully absorb and sink in that this, my current job, is now my "new normal".

But I hafta tell ya, I'm liking it already.

I guess I never realized how much the past (almost) 2 years had bogged me down.  Mentally.   Emotionally.  I was NOT in a good working environment-it was unpredictable, sometimes volatile and always frustrating;  I was NOT doing paralegal work; my skills were NOT being utilized; I was utterly and extremely bored.  And the cherry on top of that Poopy Sundae?  My commute sucked balls. 

Yeah, the money was good, but sometimes the money just isn't wasn't worth all the negative shit.

It's almost as if an invisible weight has been lifted off my shoulders.  An invisible weight I never knew was there until man, it's NOT ANYMORE.

As I pulled into our driveway last night, the shades were all still up in the Trenches so I could see in.  Hubby was in the playroom with the boyz.  Dancing.  Shaking his groove thang.  I couldn't wipe the smile off my face, for I was home.  We were all home.  Together. 

All was is right with the world.

HOORAY for leaving a toxic work environment! I did that too. I took my maternity leave and didn't come back and it was the best decision I ever made. I was at my job for 5 years and it was poisoning me. Enjoy SAHM'ing - it rocks!

That reminds me of that song "the view I love the most is from my front porch looking in". Sounds like all is right with the world :)

I read your blog before your return to full-time work, I read when you commuted into Boston, and am still reading now. This brought tears to my eyes. So sweet to hear. Hope it continues to be a great place for you (and for your family!!!)
