Now that I am back to work full-time, after a short bout of pneumonia, I am having a hard time figuring out what my goals are. I love my children and want to be there for them, especially since schools/daycare/activities in my town seem to always end at 5pm. Being there for them is really difficult with my current hours and commute. On the other hand, I am enjoying working on my projects, having adult interaction, and bringing home a paycheck. I guess this is the dilema of every mom out there; what is the balance between what is best for me and what is best for my family.
