It’s been 2 days and a half that I took care of the children and the house by myself. My house help left me last Monday because of some family emergency, which I realized after she left that she brought with her my other mobile phone. So as expected, she didn’t come back and I was left to take an emergency leave myself from work. Meaning, I will be here until Friday to become the “work-at-home” mom that I wanted to be. A sort of test drive!!
Yesterday, I informed my immediate supervisor that I will be resigning from my post effective February 16, 2008 and believe me, she called me at my residence landline phone. We talked and she tried to convenience me. I didn’t give her my final word but still, I am already decided to render my resignation.
Well, who said I can’t do it? I can be a wife. Even for few days, I have literally proven that I can do household chores. I cooked, cleaned and took care of the children. And, I was able to finally say it that I am resigning (though they think that I am stupid because I am leaving a post highly sought after by corporate career woman).
But I did! Thank God, I was able to do it! I was able to do my first move to fulfill my dream to become a “work-at-home” mom. Oh yes! Many will think I am really insane but sometimes there are a lot of things in this world that money could not ever buy. And those things are the things, I wanted most in life. Be with my kids and be able to work or earn around my children’s schedule.
The journey to my dream has not yet come to a stop but its only beginning!
