Well, I go back to the office in a little over a week…
… I can’t believe how quickly my maternity leave flew by. The past five weeks have made me truly, truly spoiled, especially since Justin’s been home with us girls most of the time. Thinking about being in the office again and not at home with my loves (and my licorice stash) has me pretty sad, so I’ve been trying to concentrate on the positives.
1. Getting dressed up. Or just getting dressed, period. Yoga pants and nursing tanks have been my daily ensemble and yyyyeah, it’s about as cute as it sounds. I can’t wait to get back into some cute, dressy things and have an opportunity to wear my two new pairs of heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeels. They make me feel normal.
2. Starbucks, my most beloved addiction. I pass 4 different stores on my way to work… no one has that sort of will-power, especially me.
That’s about it.
I will miss pretty much everything about being at home, I’m not gonna lie. Except not having satellite. Have I mentioned that yet? How we are the only tenants in this complex whose signal is blocked by A FLIPPING TREE? I’ve been on a steady diet of The George Lopez Show and Dr. Phil for the past few months since we only have the basic channels and let me tell ya, it’s been really great. Peachy, even. I’m sure that if I didn’t have Netflix to entertain me, I would have stabbed my eyes out some sort of rusted, pointy object by now.
We’ll see how well I deal with this working mom thing. I’ve never wanted anything more than to stay home with my kids, but I’m going to give this an honest shot and see how it goes. It’ll definitely be a challenge. To the ladies who manage to work on top of every other wifely/motherly duty, do you have any tips for me? Share, share. :)
