This fall I was what we call a “Busy season” in public accounting world (Yep I worked in public accounting..Big 4 no less) … it means several weeks of working literally non-stop. Nights, weekends… never-ending work. Its grueling. Exhausting. Makes you feel like a disgusting pile of mush. No time or energy for anything except accounting. Litteraly working 70-80 hours per week.
While working between the spreadsheets a few weeks ago, I decided that I had enough. I cannot do this again in the spring (I
have had two busy season one in the spring, and one in the fall). I cannot sacrifice anymore time from my family and friends.
After 1.5 years at the job, I did a little job search and landed the perfect job in corporate accounting. While we will still have a “busy season” each year, it is only about 5 weeks long! I am officially a Big 4 accounting verteran! Can’t tell you how good it feels to be out of there!
I start my new job monday. That means I have 5 days off and 3 days all to myself! It is a beautiful dreary day here. I love that kind of weather! How am I going to spend my next three days? hopefully blogging, hopefully budgeting, and hopefully shopping.. I am in need of some new outfits for my new job 🙂 Looks like we will also be doing some car shopping as well 🙁 Hubby’s car would not start this morning so I had to drive him to work. It’s old and unreliable.. probably just time to move on. Will keep you posted on what we decide!
