The End Of My Misery

So today is my first official day with absolutely no transcription work. That's right, I quit. Now before you think less of me please listen to my defense.

Number one: The pay was ridiculous for the amount of work put in each day. In all of my jobs I have never done so much actual work for so little pay. I'm telling you, a desk job is the way to go. Eight hours of pay for probably about 4 hours of actual working.

Number two: I was a grouchy miserable beast because of my lack of sleep. I would stay up late most every night trying to get my work done and when I finally got to bed Maddie would wake up. She's been waking up at least three times a night for the past three or four months. Then during the day when she would nap, I couldn't nap; I had blasted transcription to get done.

and Number three: I just plain hated it. Period.

So today it's only 11:00 and I've already had Maddie play time, walked the Raheemers, put away all the laundry (my most dreaded chore above ALL others) cleaned the kitchen and ate breakfast. I can't wait until Maddie's second nap, who knows what adventure awaits me! (maybe a shower)

Good for you! I truly believe that no amount of money is worth being in shear misery.

Yea for you! Although you just got more done in your morning than I do on any given day (except when company is coming) and I home all day too! Way to show me up. I hope Nate doesn't read this! Congrats though. It is worth it if you have sanity back.

What a relief! I remember when I typed out rebates at home it was never ending. You never get away from it, never get the relax ever. I'm so happy for you!!

No judgment from me. I worked at great clips for 10 days during Christmas hoping to bring in some extra cash, but after I paid the sitter it turned out that I was making Like $3 and hour! So not worth it, plus I was working at home and I had no time for my kids or hubby so we were all super grouchy. I say good for you. I'd rather be happy and poor than rich and miserable.
