being schmucky

Yep that's right I am total schmuck.  I gave my notice today at the High School and I feel totally sick about it (but not as sick as I would feel if  I didn't when I know when I needed to be home being a mother).

Why am I a schmuck - coz I pretty much burst into tears.  Yip being the staunch stoic type that I am choke, gag, cough.

So in 5 weeks I should be home (30 days notice, a few days travel and maybe (if I can squeeze it in) a couple of days in HK).  Part of me feels relieved while another part feels sad.

like I said - schmuck

(please note, I actually don't mind beign a schmuck, I am used to it and don't (often) see it as a bad thing).

If a total schmuck is for caring, then yeah count me as one too!. You're bound to feel sad about leaving the school, but you were sad about your daughter too, and at the end of the day she is your priority. I bet she can't wait to see you.

Whatever decision you made, I am sure it's the right one. We support you. I am sure there will be more opportunities waiting back home for you.

Of course you feel a bit ambivalent, but the decision you made was the one you had to make. You had a great three month experiment and you probably made a great impression on a lot of students. But, as a mom I understand your priority. You started this experiment by unburdening yourself of a lot of things which tied you to a place, a place you love but still. So what's next hon??

Nothing wrong with being a shmuck. Family comes first.

It must be hard being apart from your daughter, so it's definitely understandable that you want to go back. Family comes first, I'm sure the school understands.

How can you call yourself a schmuck when you miss your daughter and just want to be home. You are a loving, wonderful mom.
