Was going through some old emails from my inbox the other day, and suddenly looked over “My last working day” mails. Yes, they were replies to my last working day mail from my colleagues. I had a look at the mail’s date. Whoa! That was almost an year old. That means, I will be celebrating the first anniversary as a Work at home mom :) Yippee!!
Its almost an year and it still feels like yesterday that I left office. The memories are very fresh. My colleagues, my work, my clients,(Yes, I do miss them!) everyone, and everything is as fresh as it happened yesterday.
Hmmm… So how was my one year at home been? A lot of people kept asking me just after I quit about how I feel being at home. If I have to answer it now, I would say ADVENTUROUS !!
Experienced a lot of new things, learnt so much and many a times did crazy things! Of course, the year had few bad situations too. I screamed, messed up things, got frustrated like hell! But, enjoyed these too!
If I look back at my one year of “being at home” it really feels wonderful. I am doing so many things which I was not able to do earlier. I am not only spending more time with my daughter, but my mom also gets to spend more time with her daughter(Well, that’s me if you didn’t understand!!) :) I need not wait till a weekend to do any household work. My home is cleaner than ever! I do not have to ask my friends to meet on weekends. We can meet anytime!!
I was really nervous before I quit as to how will I get adjusted to “being at home”. But, I must say I got adjusted quickly here ;) So many things have kept me busy all through out. And, I am busier now than ever!! It all depends on how you take things. I am no philosopher nor a great person to say that I have done something very great. But, I am definitely proud of myself that I have travelled the journey from “Working Mom” to “Work At Home” mom very smoothly :)
