Day nine in my post surgery recovery is a thumbs up! Reporting on my ongoing experience with recuperation from my procedure has meant being gentle with myself when I am too tired to do the things I normally do, like go out to dinner, work at my desk or take a walk. I have enjoyed taking walks with our doggie, Janey. She has enjoyed them too. I'll miss having the time to meander and enjoy her company when I am back at work.
Going back to the topic of work, having time to rest has given me some space in my brain to consider what is most important to me. I continue to keep up with work via phone and email. I have been spending time with my husband, and my girls, when they are not working.
I realize that I work well no matter where I am, and am considering the possibility of telecommuting one day a week. I drive to Westchester County, NY from Bergen County, NJ four days a week, and back to my private practice in Bergen County for evening appointments mostly every evening. I see clients in NJ every Friday all day. While I love both of my jobs, I began to think about the wear and tear on my body.
I have colleagues who telecommute regularly. Maybe it is time for me to join the ranks, maybe one day a week. We will see!
