    It Would Have Been Easier To Forgive.

    9 To 5

    I don't think I have ever had a 9 to 5 job and doubt I could I have worked most of my life on an on call basis or shift work and it is just normal to me. Ok maybe I'm not normal I think that is a setting on the clothes dryer.

    I couldn't do it anymore. I got pregnant, left on mat leave, couldn't go back. I just couldn't do it. So now I work from home, it helps, I can contribute financially, and don't have to go back to that life again. I make more now then I ever did before. It's freeing. Not having to...
