It's so hard to know whether you are making the right choices for your family sometimes. My husband and I have a 15 month old beautiful little girl who we both love so much it hurts! I am a nurse and work 3 12 hr days a week, which is full time for nurses. Those days are long and ocassionally stressfull and 99% of the time turn into 13-16 hr days. I was presented today with the opportunity to possibly move into a case management position in a couple of months. I immediately get a nauseated uneasy feeling because I am so unsure of whether that would be better because it would be 5 days a week, set hours with all weekends & holidays off, or whether it is better to stay with 3 very long days to have more days off with my baby. In the 5 days a week job I could pretty much set my schedule and go in early to be home early.
I called hubby right away at work and told him what was up and to think about it a little and see what he thought.
I know I will never get over not knowing if what I do is right, but I really hate the sinking feeling the idea of change gives me. It is a very good opportunity to advance my career and possibly get the opportunity to further my education at some point.
I have no idea what to do! I guess I'm just searching for some KIND opinions. I wish I could be a SAHM, but that is just not an option in my world in this economy. I'm afraid it never will be.
