WOW! Sounds like you made a wise decision.
Hope you enjoy your new company on Monday. Enjoy your weekend ~ pajama pants and all!


Glad you're making this change. I've been there and done the same thing and NEVER regretted my decision. Relax and enjoy your stress free weekend. You'll be ready for the new job on Monday.

Sounds as though you made a wise decision to change your job. And that looks like a pretty good way to spend the day to me:)


Congratulations on your big change! It already seems like it was a wise decision.

Allie, I'm so happy for you. As you know, I'm experiencing a similar level of stress to what you had experienced & am hoping to make a similar change. Have a wonderful weekend, full of bliss.


Good for you!!! I hope that your new work finds you lots more time for personal happiness. Enjoy those magazines!!


Good for you!! Sounds like you got it right.

Life is too short to hand your life over to a job!
Stress can kill,at the very least drain all the fun out of life.Best of everthing to you.I hope you love your new job!


GOOD FOR YOU!!! I am so happy that you finally made a decision to make a change, for the better. I am shure that you are happy about it and that you finally can relaxe more. It is great to hear!! If you feel happy you also will be a better friend, mother and wife, and that`s a good thing isn`t it? I have a motto or expression i always have in my mind : I work for living, but i don`t live for my work! And i take every decision out from how i feel in my heart. I wish you a lovely week and good luck with your new job!! Greetings from Aina ;)


Allison, I'm so happy for you! I think you will really enjoy your new job, and not being under so much pressure! It must have been awful to constantly have to check your mobile phone for work-related crisis!
I'm so glad to see you are relaxing (it's so funny, that edition of 'Country Homes & Interiors' is the one I am saving to read until I've done my work!! Love that magazine-one of my favourites!!)And is that book Carolyn Westbrooks Home?-if so, I'm awaiting that from Amazon!!
Have a gorgeous weekend-enjoy Monday!!


Best of luck in your new job.

Don`t I know what you mean.....that is exactly why I now work for an NGO


Sounds like total bliss. Good for you !!!! I hope the new job will be as stressless as you want !!! Congrats on the new job and I wish you lots of luck next week !!



Hi Allie - so glad to hear you will be starting afresh and hope so much you will find this new job much less stressful - good luck! Yes, as everyone says, life is short really and we only get one chance to make the most of it - for ourselves and our precious families. I retired early to help raise my granddaughter - the extra money would have be nice for a few more years, but there is so much more in life that's important - like one's health and sanity!

Glad you are enjoying those British mags. - after I pack this afternoon for my trip West I hope to have time to put my feet up and read mine too!

I'm checking out with tomorrow's post - will return June 22 and hope to read you are settling in and enjoying your work.
With love, Mary.

Mary Anne Drury

Good for you !!!!!!! Wish I was brave enough to do the same thing -- JEEZE! having your life be run by a job sure takes its' toll on your family life and health! ENJOY your new found reduced stress and increased time!
