I don’t have a clear opinion about going back to work yet, only a stream of consciousness:
- I am having a hard time concentrating. I am sleep deprived and my usual 120% is nowhere to be found.
- I will try to perform this job to the best of my ability, even if it is 5mph, but I must reassess later if my best is good enough.
- I am having a hard time mustering excitement or interest in the subject matter, especially considering that my top priority is still my new child. Nothing seems to compare in terms of importance and time and effort worthiness.
Husband says I should stay home for a year. I do not want to make a rushed decision without giving the job a chance. This means approximately a month, but a bare minimum of 2 weeks of truly getting my bearings.
