So in 4 days I will leave my job as an engineer at General Motors. It is something that people there generally don't do, because it's considered a good job and there aren't many of those to be had these days. Plus I have 25 days of vacation a year and a lot of holidays. But I have decided that this is what I must do. It has been difficult for people to understand. My mother wanted to know how I will survive. My director tried to convince me to stay. My co-workers are stunned. My family thinks it's a good thing.
So then what? Well, I am going to be a mother who is there when the kids get home from school. I am going to organize the house. I am going to exercise every day. I'm going to learn how to cook!! I'm going to write a best selling novel! I'll blog about it all! Well, we'll see but it's bound to be a new adventure for me. I just have to get through the next 4 days.
