Today, it is just me and my son at home. The poor boy has the nastiest cough and I don't feel my best either. So we decided even though he felt ok, not to pass these germs on since most of our school is just getting over the H1N1. I just knew I was going to get sick. I was at the school all day Thursday to help with picture day and there were some very sick kids at school. Parents sent them just for their pictures! Ugh...there is a make up day!!
This past weekend we had a lot of fun. Saturday I thought was going to start terrible but ended up being a blast. I thought I had the day off and then ended up having to work which I was so sad about but sucked it up and ended up working til 10:00. Rushed home, got cleaned up and became a cave woman for the Halloween party that my husband and I were off too! Didn't get home til 3. I cannot remember the last time we did that. It was a much needed time out with some fantastic friends of ours. The only picture I have is from the waist up and from an iphone so the quality is not the best.
Being a working mom is harder than I thought it would be. Seriously I was blessed to have almost 10 years at home. I only work 20 hours a week but it is all at night. So I miss bed times and that alone time with my husband. Plus, I find it hard to give up that control over my kids. I know it sounds so silly. It's just that they were always my job. And well they weren't even a job. I just miss that part nightly. It could be worse I know. And I know I'm lucky that I have just now had to start back to work. I just don't like it.
Sorry for such a blah, blah post. I'm sure tomorrow will be different once I start my first day of the 30 day shred and you all can hear me cry from wherever you all may live. And if you do happen to hear me cry. Don't worry. Just know that Jillian Michaels is kicking my butt!
