I didn't realize how much I missed getting a little dressed up, going into an adult environment, and working on issues that require a little brain power. I also didn't realize how much I forgot about working on PCs when my husband converted me into the Mac world years ago. Luckily, I'm getting better in the PC world again!
The other thing I have to get used to is that private industry works a little differently than the government industry does. There are certainly more perks in private industry, but the pace is definitely quicker!
The biggest adjustment I have to make is trying to get a meaningful amount of work done while still being around to take my daughter to her activities and therapies. It's not going to leave me much "me" time. So far, I'm okay with that, but I do miss keeping up with my favorite bloggers!
Have patience with me as I adjust to my new life!
