Going Back to Work

I miss my little man to pieces!

Coming back to work was just as hard (if not harder) as I imagined. I didn't want to leave him when I dropped him off, thought about him every second of the drive to work, missed him terribly every moment of the day, and was a antsy mess waiting for 4:30 to roll around (not to mention a cheesing, giddy GOOB and practically skipped up to Tonya's front door when I picked him up). I will admit though, once I got to work and got going, I didn't feel like sobbing and feeling sorry for myself every ten minutes, so that was a plus. Today the drop off was easier but the day is worse. Obviously I'm having a hard time concentrating - case in point I'm writing a Post on the blog. So glad its Friday and I have the weekend to soak up some snuggle time with him.

I never dreamed in a million years that I would be wanting to be a stay-at-home mom so badly. I always knew I would be a working mom. And I can't say that I want to be a SAHM necessarily, I am just desperate to be with Braz all day every day of his precious little life. I miss spending my morning with him on my lap, jabbering back and forth with each other. He's so happy in the morning. And, nursing him to sleep for every nap and being the one to come pick him up and love on him when he woke. I want to be able to bring him to bed with me in the mornings so we can sleep in together or take a cat nap together in the rocker. I was his one and only, no one else was with him as much or knew him like I did. I was in every second of his life (minus one or two hours) and I was his favorite. I comforted him like no one else. Maybe that won't change but my heart aches when I think of all the things I'm going to miss. Things mommy's shouldn't miss.

BUT, I just remind myself that I am NOT the first woman to have to go back to work after having a baby. I want to be able to help provide a better life for our family and it is so much easier to do that if I'm working. We'll be able to do great family vacations this way too. In the grand scheme of things, I know this is for the best but being a grown up sucks sometimes. Right now all I want to do is stay home and play with my kiddo, snuggle him and smootch on him and make him smile and coo. *Pouty Lip*

I will make it. I will survive this. It will get easier...right?!

As Seen on Pinterest: Paper Towel Curls

I pinned this and put it under "Must Try" because seriously -- her hair looks SO CUTE and I want my hair to look like this:

And I can TOTALLY do that ya'll. So, I tried it.

Step 1: Start with wet hair. Me post workout shower [disregard the red face -- I look like my blood pressure is that of a 300 lb man in his late 40s really high after a run] with wet hair.

Step 2: Put mousse in hair, tie hair up in paper towel "curlers" rrrrreeeeaaaalllly tight. Sleep uncomfortably on back all night because said paper towel curlers are too tight. Wake up the next morning really excited -- you gonna be FABULOUS dah-ling [or so I thought].
I know I don't look excited but this is at 5:30 in the morning -- this is as excited as it gets.
Step 3: Take "curlers" out of hair and FREAK THE F OUT when you realize the curls are WWW***AAA***YYY too tight... worked a little TOO well. Maybe I need to just run my fingers through it. Yeah, I'll run my fingers …

Jason's Graduation: Part II

Dr. Allen, DC
4/5 of our marriage has been spent working towards this day. To say we are excited would be a great understatement. I can't even put into words how excited/happy/scared/proud/relieved, etc, etc, etc we are. There just are no words. Jason has worked tirelessly towards this goal. Countless hours of studying. Sacrificing time with me and the kids. And all the work he put in advertising and recruiting patients into the clinic. Personal training early mornings and late nights to help makes ends meet.  And I think of all the sacrifice we've made as a family. Living in a townhouse and then a tiny apartment. I've been the primary provider and a mostly single parent during some stages. And a constant cheerleader and standing behind pushing. We've both been pushing uphill for what seems like forever towards this goal. And we've made it. Not to discount his hard work, because he was the one who really accomplished this goal but I like to think we accomplished this …

Ramblings of a Panic Attack

I’m having a panic attack. These stupid meds are killing me. I hate them. Stick with it, stick with it, stick with it. I know it’s the meds. I just have to get through this and relax for a couple weeks. I hate this job. It’s not even that bad it’s just HORRIBLY boring. I don’t want to do this every day. I appreciate learning the process and gaining experience but it’s not what I like to do. I don’t even like accounting that much to begin with but there are aspects I like and I know it. The pay is killing me. I need money. I can’t continue to be completely broke before the first week of the month is over. Collections calls ringing all day. I’m applying to jobs like crazy. I’m trying so hard. I’m just going to keep pushing forward. Keep. Pushing. Forward. I hate that I wanted a life with Jason. That I was too blind to realize what he was. That I was ok with him even from the very beginning when I knew better. Why didn’t I want better things for myself? Seeing him makes me want to vomit.…
