Work-Life Balance Redux

My husband is working a consulting gig right now. meaning that for the last 4-5 weeks he has only been home on the weekend. On a positive note, this has been great for my productivity. I can work as late as I want in the evening with no pressure and I have pumped out my tenure package and 3 papers in the last month.

I love my job. I really do, but after over a month, it is getting a little old. Sometimes it is an excess that shows us where our priorities lie, and as much as I have enjoyed this time to clear out my inbox, I miss my husband. Kids are great, but it is not the same. So DH, come home.

The balance between life and work is always an issue for a man as well as for a woman. Especially, when you are a PhD or an educator. It's easier for a dissertation writer or thesis editor. While you stand the pressure of the scientific work, you don't need to actually contribute to its articles and pre-dissertation debates.
