I’ve been blogging for months now on this newest of new blogs, but haven’t quit my day job just yet. I feel like I’m just getting in the groove of things and the distance learning my kids have been dealing with had miraculously become my saving grace.
This time last year I was in the second half of the school year being a lunch lady at my kids’ school. It was the perfect job. An hour in the morning and about two and a half hours around the lunch periods. It left me with some extra cash in my pocket and free time to volunteer in the kids’ classroom.
March came and the world as we all know it, ended. Because my kids school pretty much shut down and there was no one to watch them I had to take leave to see to their care.
When school started up again the anxiety of what in person school would mean got to many of us. Nothing has changed and actually things have gotten worse in our area. This means I’ve spent 99.9% of my time this school year at home helping my kids. While my 10 year old is supremely independent and takes care of her own work, my 8 year old is in need to loads of reminders and tech support which only seems to happen of course when I’m up to my elbows in something messy or complicated.
One day I might get to turn this blogging thing into a full time business, but for now I’m plugging away building up my library of topics and making new friends along the way.
Have you been able to leave your day job due to a new business or adventure or are you still plugging long with the same career?
Feel free to post a link to your blog or business and I’ll help give them a little love!
