Leaving maternity leave.

Tomorrow is my first day ‘back to work’ (technically, working from home).

Fourteen weeks have flown yet moved really slowly. Just the way I like it.

It’s not easy getting back into work mode, of course. I like my job but it can’t compare to being entertained by a Koala all day.

To make myself feel better, I’ve come up with a list of reasons why working will feel good for my soul:

  • No offense, self, but being forced to chat with adults on a daily basis will be really good for my vocabulary.
  • Looking forward to being able to be a part of something bigger, global (aside from raising a child).
  • I kind of miss all the ‘what’s new’ in tech… Been out of the loop for over three months. Who knows what’s happened since I left in April. A phone that does your laundry? Facebook for infants? Twitter now makes your doc appointments? An Apple product that isn’t pretentious?
  • Less opportunity to take cute/funny/potentially embarassing photos of Koala. Good for my hard drive, good for his teenage years.

Well, here goes. I didn’t buy an automatic rocking swing for nothing.
