My First Work Trip
Home Sweet Home
Business travel allows me to connect with others that I don’t normally interact with on a day-to-day basis. It is so refreshing to be able to collaborate and work with other co-workers on trainings or special assignments. This type of work makes me happy. As I have said before, in order to be a good mom you need to be happy. Since I do not have to worry about school pickup, homework and bedtime, I am able to give work more focused attention when I travel. Do I think of my kids and husband constantly? Absolutely! However, I come home with a full tank and that makes me feel fulfilled and happy as a woman and a mom.
While I certainly do not do cartwheels when I find out I have an upcoming work trip, I have learned to appreciate work travel. It is good for the family to spend some time away from me and it is nice to be able to focus on my job. On top of that, it is so nice to go out to dinner and not have to cut anyones food!
