Back to Work Jitters
This post is probably a little premature, but I wanted to get some advice from you ladies, so I thought I'd post it today. I'm headed back to work on Tuesday and I'm feeling a little nervous about the transition. In the last few days, I've felt extremely overwhelmed with the thought of balancing work responsibilities, my child's needs, my husband's needs, my own needs, cleaning the house, doing the laundry - the list goes on. I think part of my concern is that I'm going to be doing what was a 40 hour a week job, in 25 hours mostly from home. I know several of you that read this blog have gone back to work since having your baby. How do you do it? Any tips on how I can maintain my sanity (if there is any left) and do a good job at all of this? My fear is that I will be stretched so thin, I won't be good at anything. If you know me, I hate to let people down and I'm afraid my quality of work will suffer, having to tend to a child each day - although she does have to be my first priority. I welcome any and all advice!
