I'm starting another new phase of my life. Last Saturday I quit my job at the grocery store. Since the new owners, we lost all our seniority and vacation. We were told that we can't take any days off thru August. I asked for last Sunday to go to a craft show with my daughter and found out Friday that I didn't have the day off. My supervisor was down right nasty to me and couldn't find anyone to take my place. I needed time off next week and again in June and was afraid I wouldn't get the time off. It was a huge decision because of my health insurance. After weighing the pros of the job, good health insurance, savings account, against the cons, letting a part time minimum wage job rule my life, family time, the scales became totally unbalanced. Money verses family. No contest! I went to work Saturday night and quit that night. I would not normally quit that way but it was the only way I could get Sunday off. This time was more than a craft show, it is a Mom and daughter day that we get only a few times a year.
I have been very unhappy with the job and feel a huge load lifted, even tho I need to find new insurance. I missed a lot of my kids activities because I needed to work to support them, I refuse to miss my Sweeties growing years! This new phase is definitely a good thing!
