Yes, it’s true.I officially go back to work on
Wednesday.When I think about
going back I’m flooded with feelings of sadness, anxiety and general grumpiness.I can’t believe how quickly 10 weeks
came and went.It’s so weird… on
the one hand, I’m a little excited to be around adults again and to mingle with
friends/co-works, while on the other hand I can’t handle the thought of Gracie
being away from me for 9 hours of the day.The one glimmering ray of sunshine is that baby girl will be
with her grandma and grandpa while her mamas are at work so I am very grateful for
that.I think that if we had to
ship her off to strangers I would be much more panicked right now.With the special bottles she needs in
order to adequately feed (that often malfunction) and the extra time it can
take to feed her an entire bottle, I am so relieved to know that grandma and
grandpa have the love and patience needed to keep her happy and healthy.With that being said… I’m sure my first
couple of weeks back are totally going to suck and I’m probably going to cry
often so wish me luck.
On a happier note, my pop-in-law (aka
grandpa) is seriously awesome!
I’ve blogged before about how much he does for us but it warrants
mentioning again. A little over a
year ago I posted a DIY to-do list for 2011 that we never really to-did…
anyhow, one of the things on our list was to purchase and install a security
door. Fast forward 16 months and tada – we have our security door!
G’s parents bought it for us as a birthday present and my amazing
pop-in-law installed it earlier this week (along with fixing our AC).
