I know it may be the hormones talking, but I hate my job!!!!
I feel so guilty saying that because I know many people are unemployed and would love to be in my shoes. I work as an property estimator for an insurance company. It is so flexible, I come and go when I please & I have a sweet company car. I have a full-time income but most weeks I only work 30-hours. I work from home a lot so I can be with DS. And I make a great salary. I know I should be thankful, but I seriously hate what I do People can be so rude and I see a lot of fraud which often is overlooked because it's not cost effective to investigate everything. Plus I work with all older men and they are total "good ole boys" who think I can't estimate construction jobs as well as them because I am a woman. And I can tell they resent me because I can't do large fires anymore as it's not healthy for baby to be in burned houses. Every day is just so draining and stressful!
I have other opportunities to change jobs but I can't right now because I will get 5-months maternity leave and most of it will be paid. So I have to stick it out until after my leave. Because of that I feel so stuck! If I wasn't pregnant I would leave in a heart beat!
I quit after DS was born in 2005 with no intention of returning. But when DS was three DH's business went under and I had to go back to work. I was offered this job at a great salary so I just couldn't say no. I took it hoping it would only be short term. Anyway, I hope I can quit after baby, but DH needs a new job (his doesn't make enough for me to stay home). Even though I make enough for him to be a SAHD, neither of us want that.
Sorry for the vent ladies!! I had a bad day
