Smile

I haven't been able to wipe the smile off of my face since yesterday at 2:45. That is when my manager told me that my request for part time status was approved! Starting in April, I will be working 32 hour weeks with every Friday off. Sure, I'll get paid 20% less, and the cost for my benefits will probably increase, but I can't even describe in words how happy this makes me.

I have been trying to find the perfect balance between work & family. I'm not sure you ever find one, but you can strive to get closer. Poor Judd has been so patient with me during the last year while I've figured things out. The guy has had to deal with a few complete breakdowns. I have gone from almost quitting my job, to taking on more than I can handle in my job requiring me to work evenings. I think this part time situation will be a good comprimise.

My mind has been racing with all of the things I'll do in my extra day with Charlotte. Who wouldn't want to have extra time to look at this face?

Congratulations, I'm so happy for you! I will also admit, since I'm sitting here working on a Saturday, I'm also a little jealous. But maybe that will change soon too. I really hope it's a better balance for you and they don't pressure you to work the same amount for less money. Definitely keep me posted on how it goes!
