Briefcase Full of Blues

2012 will more than likely be the year that I return to work after seven years off from full-time employment.

If I am to believe every article ever written about working motherhood, I am doomed to a life of debilitating stress and crushing depression upon returning to work.

Click HERE to read all about the secret to avoiding that all-too-common fate.

PS: I will actually be posting a non-Patch post this week...if there is anyone still out there who cares *sniff*

  6. Arh! Patch hates me, and my comments! I admit that I didn't have anything truly fab to say, but...my one suggestion would be figure out a dinner plan...for some reason that stuff doesn't just appear when you are gone all day! I think if you get paid to do something you like, it helps to keep the depression at bay...I hope!

  7. Hmmm...who are these anonymous people? Mom?

    @Andrea: Doing something you like is certainly a big key. Also? Crock pot!

  8. I care, Lynn! I just figured you were in the midst of some awesome top-secret project, and that's why you were posting here less frequently. And the Crockpot is a great idea!

  9. hi Lynn - a friend just recommended your blog to me. I admire your bravery at going back out to work! I work at home as a freelance writer/editor because my daughter has too many health problems besides her autism. I'm on call 24/7. Anyway, I'm looking forward to your adventure! Thanks for blogging about it.

  10. I will be watching for the *official* blog post this week!

    Another letter to future employers? A resume? Maybe a story about new pajamas you received for Christmas? I saw a *unique* nightgown at Target and smiled thinking of your "famous pajamas!"

  12. @no way: I do have a couple of mini-projects on the burners. More to come...

    @Pam: Well, I haven't done it yet! Not sure that you'll still be admiring me when I'm curled up under my bed from nervous exhaustion :)

    @Mindi: I saw that Target had my famous pajamas' print in a flannel version for the winter, but I did not indulge. I did get some PJ's for Christmas though and Audrey approved.

    @K: I'm not sure that my cranium has any brain cells left :(

  13. Lynn, I live my life in nervous exhaustion! And sometimes with my face planted in the livingroom rug. I still admire you even thinking about reentering the out-of-the-house-work-force.
