~couldn't have said it better myself~

Quoted from "What to Expect The First Year"....

'Deciding, while you're pregnant, whether you'll stay home or go back to work (and when) after baby is born is like choosing between a job you're familiar with and one you know nothing about.'

They couldn't be MORE RIGHT ON. Before Ethan arrived, I kept insisting I'd be back @ work in 4 wks as long as I was medically able to...ha...now as we cruise through week 5, I am full of dread as March 19th closes in on me.

The book goes on to say 'you may find that nothing you've ever done - including your job- has ever given you so much satisfaction as caring for your newborn does and you may postpone going back to work indefinitely.'

I would certainly be postponing indefinitely if it were an option for me. That would be a pretty easy decision to make anyway as I've never held a job that was remotely 'satisfying' to me...they've all just been jobs.

Still no word from the hospital and feeling more desperate everyday. I called up there though and left a message for one of the department managers with one of the open positions. Maybe if I'm lucky she'll at least call me back....gosh, I hope so.

Now they're just pissing me off! Surely, they can't have *that* many people banging down the doors to work graveyard!

Dawn-thanks!!

Wow. That's kind of scary they were able to so accurately predict your feelings about going back to work and stuff. Guess some things just *are* universal.
