I have truly enjoyed working in the library the past three years. It's been such a source of inspiration for me. And what better job for someone who loves books and children?
But, there are things that are more important to me than working a few days a week in order to bring home a few hundred bucks a month. I want to be able to see my kids off in the morning, rather than saying a hurried "see you later" over the noise of the hair drier. I want to be able to make pancakes for them if they want them. I want to be able to spend time with my husband when he has a day off during the week. I want more time to cook and clean and and write and create during the day, so I can focus on my family in the evenings and on the weekends.
With my kids being active in music and sports, I can't say that this change in my life will make my life simple. But at least it will give me a little more room to breathe. And to write.
