a very big announcement

I am going back to work!

I am a legal assistant.  I love what I do.  I believe I am an organized assistant, I enjoy my work, I try to do what I can to keep my lawyer’s practice ticking along.  I work for a large firm for a lovely lawyer.  She is smart as a whip, incredibly hard working, fair and full of encouragement.

Anyways, Doc, counsellor and I came up with a back-to-work plan.  The short of end of it:

  • back to work December 3, part-time;
  • each week of December upping the hours/days of work; and
  • back to full-time after Christmas in January.

I emailed this plan to the H.R. manager at work and to the lawyer I work for.  I explained to them both in the email that I understood any plan had to work for the firm and for my lawyer’s practice.  I told them both I understood if my returning part-time would make it impossible to return to my desk and that I would be happy to be one of the floater assistants, if necessary.

I am one lucky girl.

The response to my plan was well received – and it sounds like I am wanted back exactly where I was.

*Sigh* of relief.
