- Pension contributions
- Stat days
- Job security, as much as is possible anyway
- Less chance that I will kill my teenage daughters and land in prison
- I'm scared to death that I can't handle being a full time working mom. I've never done it. It's been 15 years since my last full time job.
- More money just means worse financial habits
- ONLY stat days - When the heck am I going to do laundry and clean house?
- No one home to keep my teenage daughters in line.
There is no saying I would get a full time job, just because I happen to be thinking about it, but part of me is terrified that it might happen and the other part of me knows that you have to grab an opportunity if it comes, even if it isn't in the perfect timetable of your life.
Just this morning I woke Liv up before leaving for work, and she, in her cute little squeaky voice, asked if I was going to be home with her today. "Not today, Baby".
I'm worried that I won't have anything left for my family if I work full time. That I will be preoccupied with trying to keep the house "presentable" to the point that my family hates me being at home at all!
I'm terrified that I won't be good enough. That I don't know enough. That I'm just plain not smart enough.
I know, though, that my brain hurts from the slow death it is experiencing at my current job.
I believe that when cut-backs come, my present job is very dispensible.
Can I get up at 5:30 every morning? Ouch.
Do I want to give up my position at the other hospital?
Do I trust that we will use the extra income to pay off some bills and then enjoy some family time?
Can I give up my flexibility at work? It's every working mom's dream.
