The title may be a bit more dramatic than intended, but I couldn’t think of another one. And I know we don’t always have the time to read every post on every blog we follow (though we sure do try!), so I wanted this to grab your attention.
If you have been following this blog for awhile, you will have seen my complaints of not being able to work. Though I live in sunny California, it was almost 5 years ago that my husband and I made the move from Ontario, Canada where we are originally from. My husband was allowed to work, I on the other hand was not. It was an extremely rough adjustment for me as I have always worked. I had jobs in middle school and high school. I worked my way through university. And I didn’t even take a break between Uni and getting my first “real” job in the workforce. I never took breaks when I switched jobs even. And when I made the difficult decision to quit my full time job in 2011 to go back to school to study nutrition, I worked two part time jobs. Not being able to work was very difficult for me.
We adopted Sunny which gave me something to focus on, which was one of the best things I have ever done. And I have kept busy with volunteering, which I have loved. But it just wasn’t the same. So when my authorization to work finally came along, I snatched a job up pretty quickly!
I had thought of maybe finding a part time job to ease myself back in gradually. Well, that went out the window. I’m going straight to full time work again. Go big or go home, right?
One of the things I’ve done to keep busy was start this blog. And I had no idea what it would turn into for me. It started out as a fun project, but quickly became a part of me. I am passionate about this blog and one of my favourite things about it is all of the wonderful friends I have made along the way. I don’t want to up and quit blogging, it would be too hard. I have no intention of giving up the blog. BUT my time commitment is going to decrease significantly. That means fewer posts, which is ok. But it also means the amount of time I read other blogs will decrease too. This makes me very sad as I enjoy reading and following blogs. I am going to try and keep up as much as I can. Though I imagine the first few weeks will be a rough adjustment. You’ve all been a patient bunch in the past though – I appreciate you helping me through this. I know many of you do work full time and blog – oh my goodness do I ever admire that. AND some of you have kids! Mind boggling, seriously. So I’m sure I’ll be able to figure it out.
Ok – enough of the heavy. If you’ve made it this far, thank you! I will reward you with some fun weekend pictures 😉
