That's great Stacy!

I just gave notice also. I said I will stay as long as they need me while they look for someone else. I will, but truthfully I hope that when she does the schedule for next week (and all the weeks afterwards) I'm not on it. I love my job and the people I work with, and I really love the kids I work with. However I have felt a calling in the last 3 weeks to do something else. First about the job I'm leaving, then more about that.

I work 19 miles from home, 1.5 to 2 hours a day, just 4 days a week. I work late afternoons, after school hours. It is hard spending so much on gas for so few hours, and being at that time of day really seems to kill the day. Because of my weird sleeping habits, I end up getting nothing much done before work, and when I get home it is time to fix supper.

Okay, why I made the decision. About 3 Sundays ago, toward the end of the church service I had a flash of a thought that came seemingly from out of left field. It was so fast it was barely a complete thought, but that flash of a thought was, "Quit your job and work on your book." I couldn't do anything based just on that, so I kept looking for confirmation.

I really feel good about making the decision. I plan to make my full-time job working on my book, sewing, ebay, and sweepstaking. Yes, I know that sounds weird, and I may change directions again someday, but for now this is the direction I feel I should be going.

Before I started the job I am now getting ready to leave, I was at home all day and never got anything done (depression). I never seemed to find the time to write. Last Tuesday my boss called and said that there was a schedule change and they didn't need me. Well, I got a ton of writing done that day. It was kind of like I was being shown that I always did have the time, but I was filling it with stupid stuff. Tuesday I felt like I had been handed a few extra hours.

I mentioned sweepstaking as part of my schedule, which reminds me, James won a cute set of two cups (no handles) with leather sleeves on them that say International Delights on them, two spoons, and two cute wood coasters today.
