I have been on a blog hiatus for a little while. I don’t want to fall out of touch with the amazing women on this page, so I’m revitalizing my blogging.
The writer’s block is mostly due to the fact that I’m no longer a “working” mom. Let me clarify that, I’m no longer employed out in the marketplace, but I’m working harder than I ever have before.
I lost my job at the end of October. Other than wishing I was the one who pulled the plug instead of my employer, I can’t really say that I’m upset.
While I am frustrated that the job search has been rather unsuccessful, and I definitely would feel more comfortable with a steady income, being able to be a full-time mom right now may just be all worth just a little bit of the stress.
Instead of shying away from this blog, I think I do have an opportunity to give a unique perspective. Until recently, I was negotiating substantial deals for corporate clients, working decent hours for a mid-sized law firm. Until recently, most of the family duties like transporting kids around, shopping, cleaning, cooking, laundry, etc. fell on my amazing partner, Lois.
Now, the roles have quickly turned. Lo is working crazy hours and I am doing everything else. Being with the boys full-time is amazing. I’ve never been great at the home stuff other than the “fun” things, so this is quite an interesting (and sometimes hilarious) journey for all of us.
Being at work and dealing with 2-5 demanding clients per day now seems like a cake walk. I look forward to being active on here again!
