Ready, set, jump...

I quit Deloitte today.  Not forever, but for now.  It is a bit scary - in lots of ways.  But it is also super exciting.  I will be taking care of my sweet babies while being a housewife, a homemaker, and a frugal lady full-time.

This change feels like a leap of faith.  Our single income does not cover our living expenses completely.  However, we have some savings and we think if we stretch, we can make it.

I know that taking care of my girls is not an easy job (in fact, I think it is more physically exhausting than working in an office).  But even so, I am looking forward to simplifying.  I hope that by wearing one less hat, I will be able to do a little bit better in each of my roles and to enjoy life a little more at a much less frenetic pace.

When I left corporate employment I was mindful about meeting monthly expenses. But I was surprised at how much less it took to meet our monthly bills. No big changes I can remember, just more careful on how money was spent. It's funny how oftentimes you just fit your life to work beautifully with the income that you have.
