I did it.

I have officially put in my notice at work and will quit my job on March 3.

This last year has been very hard on my little family with a cross-country move, a surprise pregnancy, a new office for Easy, a new career for me, kindergarten, preschool, then finally our new little babe.

I have received excellent training at my hospital and feel like a competent nurse. Still learning and humble, but competent. So we are going to put all that on the back burner for a couple of years as I plan to just focus on my people.


And I won't worry about school, tests, work, side effects, risk factors, being tired, feeling torn, feeling guilty. Not now. I can worry about all that again later.

Because my little chickies need me.

And I need them.

I am soooooo excited! I have so many plans for us.

A few things:

Date my husband
Explore the Ozarks
Have people over for dinner
Visit St Louis
Visit Nashville
Visit Dallas
Do yoga

...and sleep WHILE my husband sleeps!

Hayley, your family is so darling! I lurk on here every so often. :) Your 'to do' list sounds great! Alyssa (Probst) Olsen :)

I am so so excited for you! I always wondered how you were doing it all! Sounds like you were doing it but it was rough on everyone. You're a good mom. Your family will be glad to have all of you back. :) And later, your patients will be glad to have you back as well.

Sounds like you have some fun plans...you look gorgeous! By the way.....was listening to some Pearl Jam the other day and "Nothing Man" was playing and I thought of you.....remember when we would listen to that song and we would rewind the beginning of the second verse over and over again to hear EV's sexy voice??? Good times....

I have to say - first I stock your Blog from Chy's Blog! -- I've loved following your life-- and honestly I'm soo excited that you are getting to stay home- and as silly as it is- made me kind of sad - I have to work- and I hate it (not my job) the fact that my lil' guy is not with me all day - and I'd watch your blog and not feel so bad about it-- cuz you seem to have it all soo put together. So I'm jealous to say the least!! Enjoy your time!!!
