Decision made

I've accepted the job offer. I really couldn't think of a good reason NOT to...besides the no IVF coverage. We will take DH's insurance for the time being...and use the 1 cycle we have left. If we end up pregnant...wonderful. If not, then at least I get to be with the child I have.

The more I think about it, the more excited I get. I've wanted this (work from home) for 2 years. And it's finally coming to fruition. I will get to participate in her childhood...take her to school, help with her homework, attend school functions. All things I was afraid I would have to miss because of my 4 hour commute.

The job itself is pretty awesome as well. Not to get to specific, but it's doing what I basically do now...just for another company, and slightly different product line. I get along great so far with my team (I've spoken to all but one of them) and they are all excited about me joining them.

I am sad to leave the people I currently work with behind. I've been here for 6 years...and have worked with the majority of people for that whole time. It will be hard to say goodbye to those that mentored me when I came aboard. They are patient, caring individuals who took me under their wing and helped make me the knowledgeable person I am today. I have them to thank for this new company wanting to hire me. I've learned from the best.

Yay! I am so excited for you!

Yes, it is hard to leave co-workers behind. Especially after you've been together for so long. But they will be super happy for you. Possibly a little envious . . .

I am so happy for you... I didn't get the chance to weigh in on your decision before you made it (slow, BAD BLOGGER, I know.... but I am always HERE!) but you chose what I would have suggested. I think commuting is HELL on a person's soul. I cannot believe you were doing 4 hours a day. I was doing about 2.5/day before I got laid off and then I wound up getting to stay home with the little one full time and found a PERFECT job working from home part time. Its been 2 years and I have to say it has VASTLY improved who I am as an individual. My time is my own. You are going to do AMAZING and I am so thrilled for you.

You'll figure the IVF thing... that's one of those things that will simply work out somehow.

This job sounds like it's going to be a perfect fit. You get to work, yet spend a lot more time with Lexi.

Congratulations!
