Yup!!! I did it!!! I quit my job at the high school today!!!! Not enough high school boys asking me out anymore!!! JK!!!

I was approached by a couple that we have recently gotten to know about helping out with their kids.  Those of you who know me probably know that this is totally my kind of thing!!! Until we moved out of Utah I was always watching other peoples kids, so this seems to be a good thing.  I get to stay home and make over 3 times as much money as I was making as a lunch monitor!!!

I was a little bit nervous to tell the assistant principal today but he was great.  He let me know that I had doing a great job and that I am always welcome back.  I realy felt bad and wanted to let him know that I wasn't looking for something else and I was actually enjoying my job but that this kind of feel in my lap and  I just couldn't pass it up.  

I think the one thing that made me realize that I should make this change is that since I started working at the high school there have already been 3 days where the kids have been home from school sick and had to stay home alone because B was gone and  I couldn't take the time off (used all my sick, vacation, and personal time when we went to Mexico).  I don't want to be the mom that's not there when my kids are home sick (no matter how old they are)!!! 

Anyway, life is always full of change and I think this will be a good one!!!
