Happy Independence day to me! Feb 19th, 2016 marks the two year anniversary that I quit my job against a tyrant boss who I’ll just say is one of those people we all need to pray for. (I’ll keep the negative vibes off of my computer) I literally felt as if I sold my soul to the devil in desperation when I accepted the job after a separation from my then significant other that left me financially broke. I traded in my then two year old to day care for a salary that would more than comfortably support my three kids and I. Little did I know what the next year of my life would entail.
