Who saw this coming?

Last week my husband got this annual review and of course, it was glowing as he is fabulous. He also got a raise. Everyone together: Yippie!

Unfortunately the raise was not equal to my annual salary. Everyone together: boooo!

That, however, didn't keep me from quitting my job today.

I SAID THAT DIDN'T KEEP ME FROM QUITTING MY JOB TODAY!

I was so happy I peed my pants and wasn't even ashamed!

Hubs and I decided it was best for us and our now growing family and for us and for my sanity and for us. He'd grown to despise it as well. I know it seems ridiculous that I quit my job in the fragile economy where there are no jobs, but it was truly best for me and my family. It's not the long hours, I've done that, but moreso the inflexibility that I can't handle.

I was totally prepared to work out a notice but as it worked out today was my last day. Praise the Lord! The weight lifted from my shoulders was tremendous. I'm faithful God has something for me as I know it is not His will for me to be miserable.
