I feel discouraged, I feel down. Today I got impatient. In order for me to make this transition to be a stay at home Mom there are alot of changes that we have to make....mainly financially, I guess. We have to get to the point where I can afford to stay home. It's depressing at times. When I know things are going to change, I want change then, but I know that good things come to those who wait.

I talked to my husband about it and he pointed out all of the wonderful changes we've made so far. We've planned things out so that the transition will be in stages, so to speak. Right now I'd say I'm in stage 2 of.......6ish. Hey it could be worse...I mean I could be in stage -1 of 15 or 16 even!

Anyhow, it's not easy, but I'm determined. Determined to make our life happier (debt free in the process) and fuller! I've set my mind to it and it can be done, it just takes time.


  1. Staying at home is just as hard as getting out there. You'll find your balance, just don't rush it and for goodness sake don't settle.

  2. We've been there! We had to make some major changes in order for me to stay home as well. There are definitely days that are frustrating and days that we just aren't sure how it is all going to work out. But, it does, every time!

  3. Wow, I did the same thing. I went from provider actually to full time mom and nearly had a break down in the process, but now I wouldn't change a thing.
    I am over from Catch the Wave Wednesday, I followed your blog, it seems wonderful.
