total immersion

immersed

i am feeling completely overwhelmed this last week. an emergency at work has had me at the studio every day for the last 8 days for up to 12 hours. too much. out the door as my babes awake and back home in time to bathe them and cuddle them to sleep. i miss my kids so much. i have a newly confirmed resolve that i am not interested in a full-time job. (and so grateful for the situation i normally find myself in.) a new found respect for those women who choose to work full time plus outside the home. and a new compassion for those women who don't have the choice.

Hope the work emergency wasn't anything too disasterous!

I can't imagine working full time and having kids...the energy required is waaaay beyond me now & I have huge respect for those that pull it off. Hope life simplifies and slows down for you soon lovely!

I had to cut back a little again. Hope all is well and you're able to slow down. I want to be in the pool right now, swimming laps.

Oh, I ditto the ditto comment. You have it in a nutshell. Its sad that it comes to that, why do we have to choose. Such a DEEP and emotional subject. Necessity sometimes makes a choice for us. I feel for all thoughs that don't have a choice.

i know the feeling.

i sure wish part-time was an option for me; i do my best not to dwell on it (or think about how quickly sadie is growing up).

may time slow down for you soon!

totally agree. with a little babe and another one on the way, i can't imagine not seeing them all day and into the evening.
so grateful to be doing freelancing these days. nothing can be a little afternoon love snuggle from little one. :)
