I transitioned back to work very slowly. I started off two days-a-week working six hours-a-day, and then I slowly added an hour on. I can’t remember if I had an hour in the morning or the afternoon. I worked from 10:00 to 4:00 in the beginning because again it was hard to get up in the morning. I’m not a morning person at all. And then I would go in at 9:00, and then I started working 9:00 to 5:00, and then I would add a day. Took me a year and half to work up to fulltime, so to work 40 hours-a-week. And I still take a half day on Friday, but I work such long work hours during the week, Monday through Thursday that it makes up for it.
