    Nice. I like your analogy to cheesecake because to me the thought of three hours away doing something fulfilling is DELICIOUS. I have sort of a love/hate relationship with working away from home. In November, I went back to work part-time. I work on Mondays and Tuesdays. Every Sunday, I am torn up about leaving the house. By Monday mid-morning, I am more convinced than ever that I need this. I need it for the money, no doubt. We have two kids in college and a three year old, so we definitely need the money. More than that, though, I need it for me. I need to be around other adults who share similar interests as me. I need the thirty minute drive to the office. I need to eat lunch out twice a week. You are right. I would want my children to value themselves enough to make sure they are fulfilled. After reading your post, I am realizing that I need to give this to myself and let go of the guilt and just eat the cheesecake already.
