Back at work and busy as ever

Holy moly. I have been BUSY! I went back to work on July 23rd, and even working from home a few days a week, it’s crazy! I didn’t say anything before, but before I left on maternity leave, I was promoted! I am now the Associate Director of my department, as my director was leaving the company. Essentially I am THE director now, but since I wasn’t officially second in command in title before I left (even though I was basically to everyone regardless) I have to prove myself first before officially being given the title of Director. Woo! With all that though comes a TON of responsibility and craziness! It hasn’t been too stressful yet, but since I wasn’t expecting to be handed the reins until September, it’s definitely been a little busier than I expected. I have barely had time to eat while at work, let alone catch up on my internet-ing!

Like I wrote at Twenties Hacker, I had some sadness leaving Sadie, but personally – I think being a working mom makes me a better mom. (This doesn’t go for all moms, obviously, just myself.) I feel like I appreciate my time with Sadie more, since now it’s shorter each day. And it makes spending the weekends with her even better. ๐Ÿ™‚

My commute is so much better too! I now take the LIRR to work, instead of the subway, and that means no switching trains (unless I’m grabbing a connection right across the platform) and my walk is so much shorter! I used to either take one train, and then walk across town OR take three trains and then only walk a block or so. It. Was. Annoying! Now I get off right at Penn Station, and it’s a short six block walk. SO much nicer!

I’m sure once I’m really back in the swing of things I won’t be enjoying it as much. But for now, it’s good to be back amongst the working people.




  1. That’s great that being back at work has been busy and is keeping you happy! You have to do whatever keeps you, your family, and Sadie happy!

  2. I am glad working again seems to be going well!

  3. Congrats on your promotion! I’m glad that you are happy to be back in the swing of things at work.

  4. Congrats on your promotion! And glad things are going well. Great to finally meet you last month ๐Ÿ™‚
