Finally

I finally got word my part time status has been approved and I'll be starting my new groovy hours in about a month.

No longer will I be getting up at 5:30a to drag myself to sit in my cube all day. I'll be getting up around that same hour to get to the gym. No longer will I feel trapped all day. I'll be working 9am to 1pm. No longer will I have to hire someone full time to raise my child. I'll be able to do more of that. No longer will the projects I want to do, pile up around the house. I'll have some time each day to do a little something. No longer will the scales feel so imbalanced between work and home.

I'm excited about the possibilities.

What great news! Boy, that issue of balance is so important, isn’t it? And so hard to achieve.

I work part time as well. I work 2 12 hour shifts (long, but soooo worth it). I often say its the best of both worlds, you get to be home with the kids, yet get out and work!! So rewarding. Congrats, hope it works out well and you get to enjoy your time home!!
