Today was my first day back at work. Y stayed home with the baby today. I had a great day today. I was happy to see my coworkers and spent the better part of my day catching up with them. My boss took myself and another coworker out for lunch to celebrate me being back. She has been there for 27 years and had all three of her kids when she was employed there so she understands what its like to be a working mom.
I can't help but compare going back to my job now to when I went back after Lil Punk was born. I disliked my job then. My boss was a dickhead in his late 20's who thought he knew everything. I only took 6 weeks off because I felt I couldn't take any more time off. I often got phone calls at home on my leave. I was given a talking to the first week after I got back about achieving my sales goals. It sucked. And it sucked the life out of me. I was miserable and my parenting and marriage suffered. I wish I would have looked for a new job sooner.
I'm grateful to be where I'm at now. Have you ever been in a job you hated but couldn't really see the light until you left?
