Besides having a great support system I place there is one giant thing that has really allowed me the ability to juggle all the pieces in my life. It alone, swayed my husband on signing off on the lease of Dee at the end of the summer.
Tuesday is my new Monday.
As of a few weeks ago, I have been working 4 days a week. 32 hours versus 40. While I salute all the women out there who stay home with their kids, this actually wasn’t originally a family based decision. I work in an industry directly related to the oil industry which has taken a huge economic hit this year. I volunteered to reduce my hours. Layoffs are not something anyone should go through, and I wanted to do my part to help.
Only once I had the opportunity to spend one more day a week getting stuff done, riding and hanging out with the baby….well you can see where this is going.
So it’s official now. And I love it.
It won’t get me more media because usually I’m practically alone out there, but it has given me so much peace of mind. And joy. Because riding during the day, while your baby feeds the barn cats cheerios is too good to resist.
