It is 6:00 pm on Monday night and, while I should have gone home 3 hours ago, instead i am sitting here in the cold (furnace automatically goes off in the office after 5) and relative dark (not enough light in my section of the office when the sun goes down) working on payroll processing and don't expect to leave until about 8 or so. I am leaving Wed afternoon for Thanksgiving and will be missing two days of work. On top of this my job has just gotten busier and busier lately with increased call volume, more employees on the payroll staff, more payables, etc.
I am SO thankful that, starting Dec when I get back from Thanksgiving break, I will only work Tuesday-Thursday. Granted, the first month or two those will likely be long days, but just having two more days at home will be so wonderful. My heart is so at home now; if I could I would probably quit my job outright but I don't feel led by the Lord to do that just yet. Baby steps here, trusting God and being thankful for the progress I'll be making.
So, back to work here. Ladies who are reading this and are workers at home full time and sometimes feel like you're missng out for not working outside the home, or sometimes wonder if the grass is greener please let me assure you: it is NOT.
The one good thing about working in the office after hours is I can listen to the Beth Moore Archive and blast it without worrying about disturbing anyone. :) Thanks, Miss Beth, for keeping me company!
