So, have I talked to y'all about my job yet?
You know I'm not going back, right? Or did I forget to mention that?
Yep. I'm done. December 17th to be exact. 23 glorious more working days. In only a little over a month I'll be retired. At least that's what I keep telling Matt. He seems to think this whole not working thing is temporary. He's got another thing coming...
But in all seriousness, I could not be more thrilled! I feel so privileged and blessed to be able to stay home and raise our little girl.
It's weird how far I've come from the woman I used to be. When I was younger, being a stay at home mom was not something I ever, ever wanted to do. Maybe that's because my mom didn't stay home. Or maybe it's because I went to college with the intentions of becoming a doctor. Either way, staying home raising babies was not something I even considered. It's not like I was against the option...I just never thought it would be a possibility.
And then I met Matt. And my whole life changed. I realized that I didn't want to be in school for that long and work so hard for a career I wasn't sure I wanted. All I really knew I wanted was to be his wife and have a life that allowed me to spend as much time with him as possible.
Years later, that's still what I want.
Don't get me wrong. I still have my own goals. Ambitions. Dreams for my life. They just include a husband and now a baby and all that goes along with those precious people. They're different goals. I've changed. But I have never once felt like I have lost myself. It's completely the opposite. I feel like I have found myself. Found the person I am supposed to be and the person I'm supposed to be with.
Truly a blessing, I tell you.
Anyway...my post about how I'm becoming a SAHM has somehow morphed into how cool my husband is. How did that happen? Hm. Clearly it is no longer all about me :)
