BIG confessions this week...

I confess....

Today I gave my two (and a half) week notice and quit my job.
YIKES.

I confess....
I was terrified to do it...
but knew I had to.

I can't stand it when people are mad at me...
even if I don't like them.
even if I am NEVER going to see them again...
even if I have no intentions of changing my mind...

I can't stand people "not" liking me...
what the hell does that say about me?

I confess ....

I have other BIG plans..
I am opening my own child care center in my home.
I am super excited...
but am afraid people are going to be all judgy about my house.
It needs some work.
Its not all new and shit...
It has ugly wallpaper from the people before us.
It has ugly linoleum.
We're fixing it.
Slowly.
We're on a nonexistant tight budget...
but...
it's clean.
I guess that's what matters.

I confess...

I am super happy about already being "full"
One of my biggest fears was that I would haven't enough kids to make at least what I am making right now...at my job...
but I haven't even had the chance to advertise...
and I am full.
Word of mouth...
good stuff...
I wanna say..."yeah, I am that good of a teacher..." 
Cause I am ..
But I won't...say it...
Out loud anyway...  :)

I confess...

Ryan isn't really on board.
I mean he has done everything I have asked him to do to help me prepare "the space".
I think he thinks I am going into this and not really thinking it through...
I know there are down sides and up sides to this...
But I've made up my mind...
and if he is going to "fake" it...
I wish he'd do it better!

I confess...

Deep down. 
I am scared.
Like REALLY REALLY scared.

Good luck with the career change! I sent both my boys to an in-home daycare and loved it. It's a good thing for kids. Happy Friday.

Good luck with your daycare. I had one while my kids were still young until they started school. I actually had signed contracts and had 2 weeks of paid vacation and 1 week of sick leave. I ran it just like a business. Kept all the kids I started with until the day I closed shop. It is a great thing to do if you love kids and you let people know right off what your rules are.

Breathe deep and then just jump!
