This afternoon I’m going into work to talk to my boss about returning part time. All he knows is that I’m bringing the baby to visit and want to talk to him.
I have absolutely no idea what he’ll say and am pretty nervous about the whole thing.
It would be fantastic financially for us if I could work a couple days in the office and a couple from home.
At the same time, going back to work even on that schedule in four weeks seems overwhelming. If he says no, it would almost be a relief to be free of that place.
Almost – because we’d be screwed financially. We’d have to defer our massive ($800/mo.) student loan payments and would still struggle to make it on one income.
So I’ll just have to go in, try to stay calm, and let things happen as they will.
At least I get to drink afterwards, whether it’s celebratory or “oh shit, what are we gonna do?!”. It’s Nathan’s birthday and my mom’s babysitting while we go out with some friends tonight.
