Well, I did it. I went for the courageous route, and last night I quit my job. I have been thinking about it for some time, and I finally distilled the "reasons" down to the truth - discarded the unsupportable motivations and realized that I really WANTED to not be there anymore.

I want to be home to make home again.

I want to work on my dreams and sew more. I want to be able to nurture my neglected friendships. I want to make dinner regularly and not wear a uniform. I want to choose how I conduct my days and evenings.

I am elated because I have such wonderful support. I wrote the email (supervisor's fav communication method) and saved it as a draft to show Harold. He read it, said it was good. "Do you want to send it?" "YES." He hit send and we high-fived. It was a terrific married moment.

All day I have been so light. Immediately (as in 16 hours after the "send" including the sleeping time) I got offered more work doing what I love - pattern design.

So yes yes yes, I did it - I am doing it.

BIG ol' grin.
