I have hated working so much after my husband died and not being able to do dance classes for my girls (7&8) or music lessons etc. I will be working on not working any Tues or Wed and that will give me much more time with them. We will have to budget as I will lose 1/3 of my pay but we can do it. Just less froo froo crap which I don't need anyways. Wish me luck...I am a bit terrified but excited too.

Good for you! I think it's time well spent. You can't go back and relive your life with your daughters.

It will be fine. :-)

You can't get back the time you would miss with your daughters. Doing without some froo froo stuff is something we all could probably learn from. Your daughters will know when they are older especially how strong and loving a mother you were to them. I have 2 girls now 24 & 26. I think you made a good decision.
