First Day Back to Work
So today was my first day back to work. It was great! It felt so good to be back. Getting up before the sun was pretty hard, and will be even harder tomorrow since I will be getting up even earlier (around 4:30 a.m.) I am feeling so refreshed about my job now after having this long break from it. Towards the end, before I left on maternity leave, I was getting really burnt out. Work was no longer high on my priority list; I knew I had a child on the way and that child became my priority before she was even born. I just couldn’t wait for her to be born and couldn’t wait to be done with my job, which had become unfulfilling and mundane, for awhile.
Now, being back, I feel revived. Work is still low on my priorities list, but it is now a place for me to escape and have some time to myself for a few hours each week. Of course it helps that I love my job and my coworkers. So I view it as a place where I can be on the computer doing techy things (which I love) and hang out with people I enjoy. And Greg gets some good daddy time with Adrianna. She was really good for him today too btw. The only bummer is that she was pretty noisy after I left (around 6:30 a.m.) so he had to get up early tool. I told him that he now can see how I feel when she wakes me up at 5:00 a.m. every morning and then pretty much wakes up every hour after that.
