Today, Dr. A embarks on a new career. Starting today, I am a Full Time Mom. Last Friday was the last day at the lab. I tucked the cells into the -80 freezer, tidied the boxes of plasmids and primers, double checked the labeling on the patient slides, and turned in my ID badge and key.
Today, the first time as a Domestic Engineer, I have such tasks as getting 3 bids for fixing the sewer line, looking up life insurance quotes, locating and sorting the newborn clothes, starting a new blog, scheduling a much-needed haircut, and entertaining a 2 year old. Erin will still go to pre-school 4 days a week, but Mondays will be Mommy and Girl time.
The contract on this position is expected to run 2 years, by which time Baby Girl 2 will be in preschool. There were myriad reasons leading to the opening of this role, and I hope to do it justice. I am open to all suggestions, hints, tips, and ideas for how to be successful.
