I am mostly writing here to vent, but if anyone has some advice it would be gr neatly appreciated. I recently left a full time job due to personal reasons. I left with the knowledge that I would be starting another job at the end of August, and with my part time nanny supplement my DH and I knew we would be able to thrive.
I recently learned that my new job would now not be starting until October or November. Although I might be able to continue to nanny, this is shaky (I have already put in my end of August notice . . .) To top everything off we have recently qualified for and are able to buy a house, something we have been wanting to do for two years.
My question is do I continue to pursue this culinary career path or do I go back to child care? I will work more stable hours in child care, but I am not as satisfied as I would be cooking. I don't want to place the entire financial burden on my DH because that's unfair. How important is career happiness if everything else in your life is great?
