I am becoming a "career Mom". Most days I have to ignore the fact that I leave my son to go to work, but I have no choice. Both my husband and I have great jobs and we look at people who make less than us that have multiple car loans, mortgages and many children, and we wonder what we are doing wrong. I got promoted in November; my first Supervisor job. I feared that I would not be able to do it (I am a rather emotional person by nature) and I have surprised even myself. That feels great. Every once in a while I have to travel to a different state as we have multiple offices throughout the world, and today I had to say goodbye to my son and husband. DH and I have been fighting here and there these last few weeks...I have just been so stressed with work and he has taken the brunt of all of it. But the last couple days we talked about things, joked about our fights (which I swear is what keeps us together) and just enjoyed each others company. We all laughed and played together before I had to leave, and before I left we all embraced in hugs and gave so many kisses... Then I had to waive goodbye to my two boys...I have attached a photo of what they sent me tonight to make me feel better. I do not know why, but my God, it was so hard today. I wonder how you all handle having to travel and being away from your spouse and children. I love that I am making a name for myself in the company I work for, but I sometimes wonder if the amount of hours that I sometimes put in and the travel is worth it. I don't know how people do this on a routine basis. I suppose you'd get used to it...but maybe not... I am just so freaking sad tonight. I know that others out there have it way worse than I, but this is where I am now. Just left wondering if it is worth all this... But then I see this picture, and I know that they love me!!
