The eternal argument between women who stay at home and women who work is who’s busier and who does more work the woman that balances family and career or the woman who chose her family as a career.
To be honest, now that I am staying at home for a year it feels I am much busier now than when I was working. Granted my house work is the same, I mean I had to cook then and now I do too, the laundry had to be done and the house needed to be cleaned but now instead of dedicating 10+ hours a day to go to work and work and come back I dedicate those 10 hours to my family and home.
While I was working I was updating my blog more, I was visiting more blogs and I was commenting on those blogs and chatting with friends. Now it seems that I do check some blogs but the list is getting smaller and smaller. I hardly comment on any blogs including mine because I am so busy.
How in the heck was I working and beinga Mom? I think one had to suffer and unfortunately it was the family. I feel that we are a much happier family that I am home. Little 7aki is happier, I am happier, baba 7aki is happier. It feels less stressful now that I am home and everybody is taken care of.
I have to go back to work in September and for the first time in my life I don’t want to. I always thought I wanted the career and the both family and work but not anymore. I would love to stay at home for a real balanced life and not having to take orders from stupid people or hang around people I hated just because I share the same workspace with them.
2 years ago I said if I won the lottery I would not quit my job but now, I would quit in a heartbeat.
