I find it amazing that you're chomping at the bit to go back to work - if I were in your shoes, I'd be fighting tooth and nail NOT to go back...lol.

Of course, this perspective is coming from someone who used to cry uncontrollably on Sunday nights, as I dreaded going in on Monday mornings so bad - seriously.

My mom went back to work two weeks after I was born and worked until well after retirement age. She told me, "Always make your own money, because you don't know what will happen." And she wasn't talking about divorce; my dad had a debilitating stroke that rendered him unable to work. Had it not been for my mother's income, they would have been out on the street.

I know that this is an extreme example. But I've also witnessed SAHMs whose husband divorces them who have no choice but to go back to work. After all of those years spent at home, their skills are rusty, and they have a hard time even getting a job that will sustain them.

I know that this is a bummer thought, but given that 50 percent of marriages end in divorce, it behooves a woman to keep her skill set up to date, and that means working whenever she is able to do so. Because there's a 50-50 chance that she'll need those skills sometime in the future.
