That's all folks

After working or being in school for my entire life (save a summer vacation here and there), my last day of work is today.  It's safe to say that I have mixed feelings about this.

99% of me is completely relieved and elated.  I get to spend all day every day with my amazing little peanut.  We can go to the pool, the zoo, downtown, and I can nap when she naps!  Or get other things done, of course ;)  I've felt so spread thin lately, I am really looking forward to having more time.

What's that, Mom?  We can spend every day together?!?

The other 1% of me is worried about not getting adult interaction, possibly getting bored, and I hate to admit this, but I'm afraid of what people will think.  To those who have insinuated it (yes, there have been some) - No: I will not be wasting my brain by staying home with my daughter.  It's reactions like this that make me fear telling everyone.

A number of you have asked me why I am choosing to stop working.  The truth is, I've always known that if I had the ability, I would stay home for at least a few years.  My Mom did and M's Mom did - I guess you could say it is what we're used to.  I love working and I know that I will return to the workforce in the future, but right now I want to stay home with Carina and feel so fortunate that I am able to.

So, here's to 4+ great years at my company!  I will be sad to go, but am very eager to embrace my new job...stay-at-home Mom.

Goodbye, work!  Half of my building

The other half (yes - that is a drawbridge with a moat underneath)
