Peace

 

Sometimes we make hard choices in life.  I was ready to quit my new job.  I actually did and in the end I came out a part time employee which I am happy about.  It is the best of both worlds.  I will get adult time and an income while I still get to spend afternoons with my children.  I think I can manage this.

Time

 


Change is inevitable.  Change is hard.  I have really been struggling with work and not being home with the kids.  As much as they drove me nuts I had time with them.  As a working Mom you don't get that time with them.  I don't like the rushing, the quick baths and the sub par dinners I now make.  I want my time back.  I don't know how single Mom's do it.  I have a partner and still can't seem to feel like it's working for me.  I also feel like a failure for not making it work.  The job is not hard it's just not where my heart is.  Another day down.

Island Life

 


Someday I will make it to a tropical island where I will sit on the beach with a nice cold drink, listening to Kenny Chesney while staring out over the ocean.  I love the ocean, but my husband does not.  While we get to live in a beautiful forest, I would trade it for the ocean in a heart beat.  I think I need to plan a family trip to the shore line.  It won't be a tropical oasis but it will work.

Relax


 I would love to relax on this settee, read a book and drink a glass of wine while listening to soothing music.  It seems my days of relaxing are down right over.  I love the vibrant pops of color throughout the plants.

Another Day

 


Here we go.  Week two at work.  It was not as disastrous as last week.  I don't mind the job as much as I miss being with my kids.  I know the feeling will fade with time, but I wish the job would have started in the fall when they went back to school.  I purchased some dresses for work, but nothing this scandalous would be office appropriate in RL.

Finally Friday

 


I forgot how working feels.  I entered a sinking ship on Monday with a key person in the office gone.  From there it only got worse.  Three days of semi organized chaos.  On the fourth day my daughter had a promotion ceremony.  I didn't take enough time off work to stay past the speeches.  I didn't get to spend time with her and the other parents.  As I was walking back to the car alone, I had a full on panic attack.  Today, I am wondering why I wanted to go back to work so badly.  This wonderful scene in Second Life will brighten any dreary day.  I will be taking up a pool float this weekend and enjoying just being.

The Final Day

 


Today is my final day of being a stay at home mom.  I am feeling lots of things and I just hope this works out for the best.  Only time will tell.  This round of Designer Showcase opened with a whole bunch of newness that you need to to have.  One thing that will never change is my love of shopping in Second Life.

Sunset

 

My time as a stay at home mom will be setting like the sun next weekend.  In the beginning of June I will be a working mom.  While I have hesitations about this next chapter I feel overall that it is a good move for our family.
