Today was my first day as a stay at home mom, and I failed...
Let me back track - A couple of days ago, my husband pointed out that my expenses in 2009 were higher than in 2008. Well, duh, of course they were. In 2008, I stopped all marketing expenses in August to gear up for our move. In January 2009, I started all marketing expenses again.
Simple math would tell me that I spent more in 2009 than in 2008.
The "silly" man that he is, he decided more discussion was needed about my expenses. Excuse me, but my business is my business, and it's not yours to run... you have to spend money to make money, right?
The end discussion was that I would become a stay at home mom and eliminate all of my expenses. However, I had to show houses yesterday, so I told him my new career would have to wait until Thursday, today... but I've already failed...
I've been working all day today. I've been sending buyers new listings. I've been working on my training presentations. I've been signing up for FourSquare. I've been blogging... and I dropped my daughter off at school this morning, so she's definitely not home for me to be watching her.
The one thing I'm bad at is doing NOTHING! I can't imagine not working. I would be bored out of my mind! I guess my new career will have to be put on hold for now.
