family updates

It's been a while since my last post !  Life kinda gets in the way :-)  things are going well.  I am now home full time, lots of things lead to this decision, but work politics surely motivated me to make the bold move.  I was going to down 2 days a week to be home more with the kids, but decided to leave before the new schedule kicked in.  As you know I love my job but I can't keep up with the constant changes at work in management and uncleared directions.  I made through the restructuring but the aftermath of it, even 2 years after, still lingers on with all those who stayed.  Morale was low, I couldn't pull them up no matter how hard I tried.  I cannot go on being happy when people around me aren't.  In the past 10 years, never once a day I woke up dreading work.  The one day it happened and then again, I knew something is up.  I think the start of me wanting to leave happened on the day one of our higher up manager gave her notice. I look up to her a lot and admire her creativity and how she is so passionate about what our organization is about. What she shared with me stuck with me.  She said our organization isn't staying true to it's purpose.  That made me sad because I love my work because I love what we do for the community.  Then a bunch of little things happened, more people left and more changes took place.  I saw it coming, my end date, it's inevitable.  I really thought I would retire here.  One thing I learned is that we can never be so sure of things in life.  Never ever be sure of things because we cannot predict even the next min. in our life.  We might not change, but people and situations around us do, and that changes the dynamic of things.  That's life friends !
