That darned grass

Always looks greener. Always! For the last few days hubby and I have been toying with the idea of selling our overpriced, yet lovely, home and buying a house for nearly cash in a less spendy market...at the same time, negotiating with his old employer for him to telecommute in his old job. As for me, I would go to be a stay-at-home mom. In one moment, this excites me, scares me and shocks me.

I think it could be amazing, but I never expected to be a SAHM, ever. I didn't think I would have a problem going to work while my buddy was at home. I actually thought it would be easy. I never thought about the feeling of sadness I would get each and everytime I leave them in the morning.

I also think it is scary. Selling our house, moving 1/2 way across the country, NOT working. Seriously, scary stuff. What if we hate the new place? What if we can't sell our house? What if not working stinks? What will we do when Boy is old enough for school? Hate that grass!

What would you do???

But what if it is the greatest thing in the world for you?

What if...1) you become a happier person because you are closer to your family? 2) You get time to get to know your son and yourself as a mother? 3) Boy grows up with the morals and values that you taught him not a daycare?

Come on, do it!

What if you love it there but need to work because you are going crazy? You'd get a job!

I actually found a job there that s perfect for me, so, I applied and the recruiter called. We shall see. I cannot agree with you more. Although, it is important to note that hubby is a stay at home dad. Daycare freaks me out personally. Nothing against anyone else's choices, just for me, I want at least one of us to stay at home. If Hubby can work the deal with old employer, you are right, we are probably going to do it.
