A Struggle

Day 20: Get real. Share something you're struggling with now.

The first thing that popped into my head was going back to work. It is a dark cloud hovering. I know it will be fine {been there, done that} but until I actually do it, it is hard to really wrap my brain around it. I have a lot of the same emotions I had when it was time to go back after having Trent. In my heart, I wish I could stay home with my babies, but it isn't in our finances. Luckily, my boss and I are still working on tweaking my responsibilities that will make things a little less chaotic...which is much needed! So I am trying to soak up everything I can over the next 2 weeks. We will do it and then life will shift again and we'll find our normal...and I think it will be better for everyone, it's just hard. And that's enough because I don't want to start crying!

Isn't it funny how when you have a baby everyone asks if you're going back to work?
Have they ever thought it's not an option for everyone?
I don't get that.
Right before I came back, one of my close friends, said.. are you sure you want to go back?
I finally told her. Umm.. there's really not an option.
Granted, I love my job and can't see myself as a SAHM, but even so. Hang in there.

I'm sure that must be so hard. But it's cool that your boss is working with you. I hope the transition is good when the time comes!
