    Default Grrrrrr.......Just need to let it out....

    I went back to work this week following a year's long maternity leave (I am a school counselor, elementary) and now I have no time to scrap!
    It's like I am going through withdrawal already and it's only been three days! Well, longer because the computer died, and I got a new hard drive, got PSE 10 at BJs, installed everything all over again, yadda yadda yadda....
    But I miss this place, I miss scrapping, I miss the chats and night owl scraps, and I am about to lose it!

    Love you all, missing you all, thinking of you all, like all the time!, and hope I can get myself on a new routine that brings me back here soon!

    Hugs!!!

    Been there, done that. We all need a break from our "normal" routine, so just think of work as the break that you need! (It's gotten me through several months of work multiple times after being a SAHM.) Do school counselors have more schedule opportunities? (Meaning that you can only work part time.) Do you still have to work during the summer when the kids are out of school?
    Good luck on conquering the withdrawal symptoms!

    Oh no! I'm hoping you find a new routine that will allow you some scrap time! It's never easy changing up the routine.

    what the other girls said, i know it's hard to go back to work after staying at home for so long, i havnt worked for 6 years now, and just picked up a holiday job at the chocolate shop last winter, and boy that was hard, i'm not really excited to start "real" work once ana is in school full time.

    I'm trying to feel sorry for you, but I can't get past the whole "year long maternity" thing. I want to work where you work lol! But seriously, it is an adjustment when you start work again, and that's tough, especially cuz you've still got a family to take care of! I mean, a working mom is still a mom 24/7, so you've got to find time to do what matters to you, and I hope you find time to scrap ASAP!
