For those of you that remember, my husband and I agreed that her would step down from his managers role due to stress and not much family time.
He is now at a store 10 minutes from home, we have dinner as a family nearly every night. We have a roster that is a month in advance, no call outs in the middle of the night. But the best thing of all is my husband is a much happier man. Friends and family are noticing too. Financially we are doing fine. So glad we made the change

  • yeah! even though it was hard to take that step, you are all happier for it! that is the important thing!


  • It sounds wonderful. I’m glad it’s working for you.


  • It’s fantastic. A quiet and relaxed life, enjoying your family and your free time, is surely more important than money. Well done!!


  • Thanks everyone


  • Glad you are doing great,call outs are no good-back to being normal!


  • Yes great to hear on choosing happiness and family time over money!


  • It is lovely to hear your family is enjoying real family life. Your husband will be feeling less stressed & everyone benefits. A good move!


  • This is so great to hear. My husband is a store manager and drives 1+ hours each way on country roads in the dark to get to and from work. It’s a stressful enough job without the travel and we are hoping he can soon relocate to town. There is a store we can see from our house that would be perfect and so good for the kids!

    • That’s what my husband was travelling. I hope he gets to relocate soon


  • Congratulations on choosing happiness and family time over money, my husband did the same a few years ago when we had kids, and although at times money is tight it is the best thing we ever did.


  • Excellent to hear. Balancing life and work with family is such a tough one. So good to see you’ve found a way to cope that’s making everyone happier
