    The first week was tough, but I found that as long as I get my time with her in the morning, being separated from her throughout the day isn't hard. The thing that has been tough is that my work day is a lot shorter, and it has definite start and stop points (I drop her off in the morning at 9:30, which means I get to the office at around 10am, and I have to be home by 6 to feed her after Russ picks her up). What's been good is that while I'm at work I'M WORKING. Like, really working, not fucking around on the internet. Mornings and evenings are just too precious and I can't give them up to finish up a project I was procrastinating from during the day. I've had to turn down work and certain speaking gigs that require a lot of travel, but I know that I'll hate myself if I lose any time with her in this first year to a project I felt so-so about taking on.

    The hardest adjustment has been the near-constant pumping at the office. I'm actually pumping right now.
