Well as you probably know work has not been easy for me.  balancing schooling for the kids, sleep, the house has not been working at all.  I finally went to my supervisor tonight and layed it all on the line.  I am going to have to make the decision to continue to work at Ross or quit which you guys know I do not like to do. 

So if any one can answer my questions I would love to hear the answers...


Should I continue to work at a job that has already told me that I am not going to get the position I applied for?

Should I wait and see? things are always changing.

 Who wants to watch kids at 4:30 - 7:30 am when I go to this new shift?

Is being debt free worth all that I am putting myself, my children and everything I care about on hold?

Just wanted to share what I have been thinking about since I am not around much.

Did I mention my hubby is gone again for a week.  That makes 4 weeks he has been gone out of the 5 weeks in this current year!!!

In my personal opinion, after the year I've been through, money is ABSOLUTELY NOT worth the sacrifice and toll it takes on your family. Your family is what you live for. Being debt-free is nice, but there will be plenty of time when your kids are older and in school full-time for you to work and pay down debt. You are still young and so are your children. Don't miss out on those special moments with them because they are only little once. Why not get a job that pays less, but doesn't have such odd hours? And if Anthony wants you to work, his schedule will have to accommodate yours as well. Ok, that's just my two cents. But I want nothing more than for you to be happy...and frankly, you don't seem happy. If you haven't been doing so...pray about it.

Feb. 1, 2008 at 9:22 AM My heart goes out to you.  It is so obvious that you LOVE your family and only want what is best.  Maybe there are other ways to help pay off debt?  I know we are always searching for ways to eliminate ours too.  What I worry about is your stress level and health.  Pray about it.  I will agree with you in prayer for God to send you a clear cut sign as to what He has planned for you.

The absolute truth about what you should do sits with you, God and your family.  The answer is simple, I'm sure.  It's us that makes things complicated and noisey.  Find a quiet place where you can talk through your fears about your decision and choices.  My thoughts are that you may need to absolutely cut out the time and space to hear your answer.  One more thing.."quitting" is not always about letting someone or something down.  Sometimes it's growning as people and learning what is important to us.  You are absolutely NOT a quitter even if you decide to "quit" your job.  You are a LEARNER who can't and won't do everything perfectly all the time. 

When I'm in dilemmas about  things like this, I try to ask myself what advice I would give my children.  Maybe that would help you too. 

love ya...
