from full time, full on career to cutting back a bit (say 60+ hours a week to 25?)....how did you do it?
I love what I do. I'm also definetly a bit of a work a holic. I don't think I need a 12 step program, but, I certainly am having a hard time even cutting back a tinsy bit while I'm pregnant, for example, so cutting way back will be hard (I've reluctantly passed on a trip to Israel next week, and a trip to NY last week which wasnt essential but would have been good for bus overall).
I'm planning on going to part time after maternity leave.
My DH doesnt work he's a SAHD so that's part of the angst. But we are financially independant so its mainly missplaced concern on my part.
So....any tips on how to transition to a slower pace when it comes to work? I've got almost 4 year old twins, so its not from want for something else to do when I'm not working! And I LOVE being with my kids --- I just also really love my work. Its the balance part I'm struggling with.
