I’m feeling really ambivalent about my upcoming leave. A part of me doesn’t want to go on leave, largely because work doesn’t really feel like work most of the time here. And yet, I have a feeling my priorities will completely shift in a few weeks as soon as I hold my son in my arms for the first time. And that’s probably why I’m having difficulty really preparing my desk for my maternity leave, because it’s not a 6-week vacation that I have coming up.
I have to prepare myself for becoming a mom!
