What do you really want to do for a living? Can you pursue that? Seems like I remember a posting where you were fairly clear on what you wanted. Take the plunge girl. Be done with it. Your kids are so darling, they deserve to see you happy with what you do...they KNOW you're miserable...and they might decide it's up to them to make you happy, to pick up the slack...
...oh wait, sorry, that was my childhood...

> I was told that to move into the lowest level "line" position, that my willingness to work 7:45 am to 4:45 pm (there's an "unpaid" lunch hour in there although all of us just spend 10-15 minutes grabbing a lunch then eat while working at desk) just would not cut it.
> I know that I am making the right decision this time in saying, then so be it, I cannot give more than that. I have a 4- and 7-yr old at home, and a husband working his own business, very erratic hours (never more than 40, but he's still exhausted), and my commute is an hour each way, add 15 minutes to that each way for dropping off/picking up son from day care. I am already not doing a whole lot of things I'd like to do because of working here full time. To ask more hours from me is ridiculous, I would get from 5K to 10K more a year and I'd then be in a track for future promotions, but it's just not worth it.
