Last week I posted that I was taking a step back from work.
Today, I took a new job.
I have cut back on the time that I’m working, but this is what I rediscovered last week: While I do want to spend more time with my family, I also do not want to cut out work altogether.
I enjoy what I do. Not only does it make me happy, excited, elated, but it also gives me things to talk about with my husband, my friends, my mom.
Not that I don’t have a lot of great stories about the two girls, mind you. As we all know, children afford great talking opportunities.
Yet I also need that drive that I get from work.
So, I’ve decided to set up better parameters that will ensure I work less, spend more time with the family, and am able to do it all . . . just not all of the time.
I told you I would check in with you. so here you go!
And by the way, thanks to you all, I did not work at all on Saturday.
Have a great, wonderful work week, moms and dads!
