I know I post everyday, but it seems like it’s been a while since I’ve actually written anything about what’s been going on with us. So, I decided that it’s about time I update everyone with what has been going on in our lives.
First of all- there has been a major change here at the Livin’ With Me household. For about the last year Rich has been very unhappy at his job. Last year in July we talked very seriously about Rich leaving his job and finding something to do that he enjoys. Rich has always enjoyed playing around on the Internet and creating sites and a bunch of other stuff I don’t understand. He has done it as a hobby and really likes doing it. So, we have talked a lot about him leaving his job to do something he has fun doing.
There always seemed to be a reason not to do it though- mostly it was me worrying about all of the what ifs (and believe me I know there are lots of what ifs). I could see that Rich was becoming more and more unhappy with his job to the point of hating it. I think that life is too short to go to a job every single day that you truly hate, and to think about doing that everyday for the rest of your life is an awful feeling. We finally decided that Rich would leave his job and try doing what he actually likes doing. So, a couple of weeks ago Rich left his job to work from home doing what he enjoys doing. I know that there are still a lot of what ifs and we have certainly taken a big leap.
This is the reason that you have probably noticed that I have been writing a lot of sponsored posts lately. Many of the posts I write I am getting paid to write them. I don’t really want to do them and I don’t like filling my blog up with those kinds of posts. But for now it is helping to supplement our income as Rich starts out on this new venture. So, I appreciate that you are still here reading my blog even though you have to comb through all of the other posts.
The way I keep my blog organized is whatever my “main” post of the day is will stay at the top of my blog. Anything under that is probably a post I am being paid for. You will also find what I call “filler” posts that are in-between the posts I am paid for- this is a requirement of one of the companies I write for. Please do not feel like you have to read all of my sponsored and filler posts, and certainly don’t feel like you have to comment on everything. If you just read the post I put up at the top of my blog each day then you will be reading or seeing what I consider to be the important post for that day.
So, I guess that’s all for my updates for now. Please keep us in your prayers as we are going through this change. It’s been fun and exciting but also very stressful.
