Filed appropriately under the category: "Insane." That's where I have placed the past few weeks of my life. While my husband and I were fortunate enough to take a nice trip to Europe--leaving our 7-month-old son to be pampered for 10 days by his grandma and grandpa--getting back into the groove of life and work has proved to be a challenge.
Before I left, I knew work would be busy when I returned. But having worked under tight deadlines for many years, I knew I would get the work done. My husband also had been scrambling at work to make progress on several important projects. And he was prepared for those projects to be waiting for him upon his return. These things we planned for.
