I gave two-weeks' notice at my job today. Not without some sadness, because it has really been a great job with the best boss in the world. However, it has taken a toll on me physically, working long hours with a long commute. I have gained weight being so sedentary, and being too tired to shop/cook healthily. I have lost a little of the weight gain since Kasey moved in and has been cooking for us, but I need to have the time and opportunity to work on it. Exercise? Fogeddaboutit. It's dark when I leave in the morning, and dark when I get home at night.
There are also some other considerations that are still under wraps for the moment.
I am reverting back to my previous on-call status, though I won't be working as much or as regularly as I did before going full time. I equate the new status to substitute teaching...any branch in the vicinity can call me when they need somebody, and I fill in if I'm able. That allows for a lot of flexibility (read: few work hours), while still being able to claim a current employer.
It's kind of scary.
