Giving my notice on Thursday...

So there it is.  I am giving my notice on Thursday.  I have worked for my company for 10 years, but as of today I can officially say I am done.  I work to many hours, am constantly having to fill in to cover shifts for unreliable staff members.  My husband travels for work so he is gone almost every week, that leaves me to take care of our girls ages 4 & 3 months pretty much by myself 24/7.  Went back to work March 4th and both me and the kids have been sick all month.  To top it all off, I found out today that one of my peers (who is a d bag) is being promoted and will be my boss. No thank you! So I am going to bow out gracefully, give my notice offering time for my work to hire my replacement and take some time off to take care of my kids.  Money will be tight and I will have to pay for private medical, but I seriously can't take it anymore.  Wish me luck!

Good luck!  You'll be fine!

I was in a similar situation shortly after I had DD and went back to work. I ended up leaving after being back for about 3 months.  It was tough considering the time you put in, but worth it in the end.  Peace of mind and not having to deal with stress at a job you don't like is so not worth it.
