She works hard for the money

How do I feel about going back to work? Good and bad.

The good

*I only have to work 20 hours

*I was able to make my own schedule. Saturday for 10 hours, Wednesday and Thursday for 5 hours 1:30 to 6:30. Shaun has Max on Saturday and on Wednesday and Thursday Shaun can go into work early so he can get home early. There is an hour and a half by the time I leave for work and Shaun comes home, So our friend and neighbor Tori watches him for that hour and a half. Thanks Tori!

*When I'm at work he's with his dad. This is great time for Shaun and Max to bond together.

*We have insurance through my work until Shaun's work will let us sign up for insurance. (about a couple months)

*I get out

*It gives me a break? Work a break? In a way it does. It's something different.

*I got paid 70% of my pay while I was on maternity leave.

The bad

*I miss Max

*It's work

*I miss Max

*It brings out my road rage. Nothing brings out my road rage then stupid slow drivers when I'm trying to get to work on time. GET OUT OF THE FAST LANE!!!

*I miss Max

*It can be stressful

*I miss Max

The first day I went back to work I told Shaun to have his cell phone on him at ALL times. I also told him to call and leave me messages on my cell phone about what was going on. I would get these messages that said, "We just got back from the store, We're at Home Depot, We're on our way to Auto Zone, Max is fine." Good job Shaun, for giving me the play by play.

It's a great feeling to know everything was going just fine with Shaun and Max. But in a way, I was hoping everything was in complete chaos and I would come home and save the day! I wanted to be Super Mommy. But we all know things are not as good without mom:)
