Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work I go.

12 weeks off of work and I'm heading back in the morning. I can't tell you how excited I am! I get to get up first thing in the morning, head to work, stop off for my lovely daily coffee and go to my little place at work - my own cube. It's not much living in cube world, but I honestly love it.

I'm starting a new job as of tomorrow too. Well, I'll probably get the week to ease back into things, plus, I have two half days this week for appointments (taking back the time from when I went in during my leave to move cubes). So next week will probably start my new new job. Same group, new manager and a totally new job. I've wanted to move to Project Management from Development for a long time and my boss finally reorganized the group to give me this responsibility. My new boss is awesome too - we've been friends for years, but the good thing here is I also respect the shit out of her, so there shouldn't be a problem recognizing her as my boss. She's given me the choice to go into a BA (business analyst) or PM (project manager) roll. The final decision hasn't been made, but I may start in the BA roll because it's more closely related to my development background, which should really come in handy.

I already blogged about it on my other blog, so if you want my opinions about the family aspect of going back to work, check it out there.

Such exciting times. I hadn't posted this weekend at all and I had to get the boob post away from the top of the screen. So I give you this dribble. :)

Have a great day back, Nancy!! I totally understand needing to get back. I know working makes me a better mom...wish I could do it part time. :).

Good luck with the new position. I thought about trying management too, but what a headache. I decided to stay in my cushy analyst role (statistician in health care). Much more time to goof off, deal with sick kids, and all that.

Hope you have a rocking day at work! A new kind of routine! Be cubediva!

jill said...

Good luck! Though you totally sound like you don't need it. Maybe "Congrats!" is more appropriate instead ;)

I am wishing you the best for your first day back at work. It will be fun to see your friends and coworkers and share your baby experiences with them.

Jen said...

Have a good first week back at work. The new job sounds interesting. It's so hard to find good business analysts because you need people who can talk with programmers AND normal people. It sounds like the perfect fit for you!

Sarah R said...

a la Office Space. Don't go tipping over your cube now! LOL....

Good luck! I'd gladly trade in my office for a cubicle if it meant some peace for me!

WISHING...HOPING...and PRAYING said...

i can't tell you how many days i wish i was still in the work world! there are definite pros and cons to both sides. today was certainly one of those days where i wish i could "call off" of being a stay at home mom. i hope all went well!!!

Io said...

Hope your second day back is going well!

Wommy said...
