Think, Think, Think...

As Pooh would say... "Think, Think, Think..." I'm thinking of giving my notice to the school. No, I won't end my stay immediately but at the end of school which for me would be June 1. I love my classroom and this is hard for me to decided. I have to carefully consider all the fall outs from such a decision...

Yummy tells me to give notice and stay home with the princes. We can do it... it would be tight but we can make it. I could sub as the princes schedule allows to bring in extra money and then in January I get my settlement check from the ex...

I'm worried about if I don't give notice then whoever sent the letter to the bishop will do it again and not stop until they succeed.

Yummy and I are planning to get married in July. I don't have my annulment so technically I can't teach in a Catholic school because I'm a sinner...

I'm having trouble getting my classes I need for the summer so I can renew my emergency permit to teach in middle school. Without it, I would not have a job anyway.

If I stop teaching within the system then I would have to pay for the princes to attend the school they attend. I receive free tuition as a benefit. This saves us about $3000 each year.

If I do give notice and stay home, I could attend more functions at school for the princes. Which they would LOVE.

I'm scared I will go stir crazy.

My mother tells me to stay home if we can do it... get married and live my life and not worry about it. It will all work out.

She's probably right... everything has a way of working out.

I think the best possible situation for the princes is for a parent to be home when they are not in school.

That being said I would not let my accreditation go in this economy. I would truely wait and see if the congress changes hands in 2010 before I gave up the accreditation. You can also do things like medical transcription from home as well as other gigs. They won't pay as well but they will be income earning and flexible. In this environment with good people losing their jobs every minute I think I would NOT quit, if they fire you then you really can't do anything about thaat.

Good luck sexy!

My sis-in-law just told me tonight she wanted to be a mom all her life and now that she is, she can't be a stay at home mom because they can't afford it and she would give anything to do it... I just want to toss in my 2 cents--> stay home if you can, you'd be a great stay at home mom AND I know you would find a way to fill those hours- can we say volunteer? :)

I hate hearing about small-minded people trying to impose their morality on others. Like you're less a teacher because of your marital/co-habitating status. Silly, really. Another reason I've never exactly been a fan of the Catholic Church...

Putting in my 2 cents. Your boss in an ass. You talk often about disliking it there. I would totally put in your notice.

And if you can swing it, stay home for a bit. Enjoy volunteering at the school, etc. If you find yourself going stir crazy you can look for something else, part time or full time. :)

It is a big change but your mom is right. We did the same thing and are very happy. The extra money would be nice, but the kids love having mom around.

Geez, I get busy for a few days and don't make the rounds, and all hell breaks loose!

Everyone else has pretty much said what I'd say. Hope that whichever way you decide to go works out best!!!
