Back to work

I’ve wanted to post for a long time but I’ve been so busy with this and that. You know how life can get sometimes?! I hope to one day get back into blogging because I do enjoy it. Love getting my thoughts out there.

I didn’t participate into NaBloPoMo this month and I’m a little sad about it. I know I wouldn’t have had the time to prepare so many posts, but it would have been fun. Maybe next year? I guess I’ll start by trying to post more than once a month like I have been doing lately.

So now that Ezri is 1, I have officially maxed out my maternity leave. I am so fortunate that I live in a country where I was able to stay home with my baby for a full year! I enjoyed every minute of it and am very grateful for the time we spent together. But of course the fun had to end sometime and I had my first day back at work on Saturday. Luckily it was only a 5.5 hour shift. Not too bad. I worked again on Wednesday and it was a full 8 hour shift. It is so weird to be back there. So familiar, yet a little foreign. I’m not working full time yet, so I’m slowly easing back in. I’m in my 15th year at my current employer and of course they just had to wait until I was gone to change the computer system. So even though I know the place like the back of my hand, I feel like a brand new employer as I have to learn the new computer. I’m catching on to all the new tricks and hopefully it doesn’t take too much longer until I’m a pro like the rest of my co-workers.

When I am at work, Ezri is either home with Peter or with my Mom. It’s so great that I don’t have to put her in daycare! My wallet is very happy too. She seems to have done fine without me for the two days I’m worked so far. I missed her like crazy, but it’s just the way life has got to be.

I’ve got a bazillion other things to say, but I’m going to wait. I’m going to try my hardest to write some more posts and have them come up in the next couple weeks!!!

    Welcome back to the working world! It will definitely be a little bit of a shocker and a transition for both you and Ezri but distance makes the heart grow fonder! I’ve been back to work for almost a year now but find I still have tons of time for her.
    Oh no! Thats unfortunate that they changed the computer system while you weren’t there. Hopefully it’s not hard to catch back up to speed with it. New systems generally mean new processes but hopefully it’s not a huge transition. Best of luck!

    That’s so nice that you get a year for maternity leave! I wish the US would do the same. That’s also good that you’re easing back into it. I hope the new computer system won’t be too hard to get used to. Good luck with everything!
