Mom on her own

This is the first time I’ve ever been away from home since Kai was born. I’m off presenting at a conference on my dissertation research and my kiddo and her dad are hanging out doing fun Halloween things. 

It’s weird going back to my professional life after so much time more or less being a SAHM. I mean, I’ve been working, but writing from home and traveling across the country are two different things. 

It is, however, really nice to be hanging out with my colleagues and having intellectual conversations again. I even went to a bar last night for the first time in more than two years. 

Still, I’m going to be ready to be home when the conference is over!
