Three more days until I find out my fate.
Will I have a job and a salary? Or will I be without a job but have more time in my life to do other things?
Honestly? I really can't say which I prefer. And I truly mean that. Both have extreme benefits and detriments.
If I keep my job, which I do enjoy, I'll maintain my benefits and salary, not to mention my vacation, sick, and sabbatical (less than one year until I'm eligible). There will be a LOT of change in the company and I'm sure I'll be able to take on more responsibilities and challenges, which I'd like. Plus I get two months maternity leave and I'll have about two weeks vacation after that. All paid...which would be nice.
On the other hand I'll have to pay for daycare after I go back...and "inexpensive" daycare in our area is over $800 a month. Yowza! I'll be working almost two weeks just to pay for daycare.
If I lose my job, hubby has told me that I AM applying for unemployment. Just the thought makes my stomach turn. Or it could be the pregnancy, I don't know. But it IS my tax dollars right? *sigh* You have to prove that you are looking for employment while collecting these benefits though - and even though it's technically illegal - I don't see many employers wanting to hire an obviously pregnant lady. And honestly, I wouldn't WANT a job right away. *sigh*
I'd like to have time to get ready for the baby and work on my jewelry. I have a new idea for a new line of my jewelry that I think would be really popular in these times. But I won't have time to do it if I have a job.
I'm afraid I'd get bored at home though. I don't think I'm made to be a stay at home mom, even with my business. Although imagine how organized and clean my house would be. :) At least that's what hubby hopes.
There's nothing I can do to control the situation...which is hard for me. I like to control things. So I can only pray and wait. Someone knows my fate and they'll let me know on Wednesday.
