Oh Yeah, And I Quit My Job

Blogging, Church

argyleandapricots - quitter

I suppose I forgot to mention something in my return to blogging update yesterday – I quit my job. Just something else that I have been up to these last few months. Along with deciding to spend more time with the family and travel with Danny came having to decide what to do with my role at Sandals Church. I worked part time but really it was a role that consumed most of my day since even when I wasn’t on the clock people needed things from the church, wanted to talk or I was downloading on my hubby all that was wrong in the world and specifically those that wouldn’t get off their butts and get a job.*

*All haranguing was done in the name of Jesus, of course.

I have already posted on my particular views of the unemployment/get off your tush and work “issue” so I’m not going there, don’t worry. My soap box has been lowered a bit during my “sabbatical” and yes, I’m still calling it that because it still makes me feel better about myself.

It was time to move on and I believe I left the Care Ministry in very capable hands. I do miss seeing the majority of our church family each week but I do not miss getting up early every Sunday. The best part so far has been turning over in bed and asking Danny if we were getting up for first service and knowing with the tone of his sleepy response if I could roll over and go back to sleep. Priceless!

So, I’m back writing, trying-key word-trying to keep the house clean, spending time with women in my life that I can invest in and hopefully vice-versa, soon to be volunteering at the pregnancy counseling center and taking care of the Schoulten-Zimfam.

Life is Good.

    Erin, I know, huh? I sorta forgot about it in yesterdays post. I definitely think it was the right decision for our lives right now. My hubby looked at the calendar for the past 3 months and he was only home for two complete weeks-in 3 months. It has been crazy with him gone so going with him seemed like a great solution which required my leaving Sandals.

    I’m so glad “life is good” for you right now! I was wondering what the deal was with you. I could see you were no longer working at Sandals. What a loss! You are so amazing at everything you do! I’m glad your family is getting to experience more of the amazing you!! Love ya! Karyn

    Heather, We did have fun. I’m thinking your trip to Nashville had to top anything Cat had to offer. So awesome.
