Two Weeks....

I have been back at work for two weeks now, and while I do come home more mentally tired than physically tired. I also feel a sense of accomplishment that I haven't felt in a long time. There are days that I feel so incredibly blessed with Carson...Lord, knows he is not perfect, but he is ours....loved beyond measure, and teaching me everyday to be thankful....because it could be so much worse.

Home life has changed somewhat, I am not used to flying by the seat of my pants when it comes to meal preparation. I like to know ahead of time what I am fixing for supper....meaning if Wayne doesn't tell me what he wants....I don't have to cook ...right? Carson is eating more lunch at school, simply because he thinks it's cool...it really has nothing to do with the fact that I am too rushed to make him a lunch and a snack every day as well as my own. Time management is an area that I am working on.... no longer can I say oh a small nap now or laundry....I have to do the laundry......unfortunately..the laundry fairy doesn't ever visit here...and surprisingly Wayne doesn't know where the laundry room is in this house. I do recall he used to do laundry quite often in Texas....must be a Virginia thing.

Carson is adjusting to me not meeting him at the bus stop every afternoon....after all what kid wouldn't like going to a friends house where they have all the cool toys....at least for a half hour every afternoon.

Sadly there are a few things that are getting neglected....my blog for one, and my passion of scrap booking is the other. Fortunately, we have a four day weekend. School is out for Martin Luther King day on Monday, and the Inauguration on Tues. (one of the fringe benefits to living so close to D.C.).
So today, all three of us kicked butt and cleaned this house top to bottom....believe me when I say top to bottom....it is three stories, and I despise cleaning!

Tonight, I hired our first sitter since moving, and Wayne and I are heading in to D.C. to eat at a favorite seafood joint, and perhaps do some shopping. Hopefully it won't be too crazy there yet. Then WE have the rest of the weekend after church tomorrow to do whatever! I am gonna scrapbook!

While I fully believe that staying home is the hardest job (I've done both - worked and SAHM), I know what it's like to not have enough energy to make lunches and figure out dinner. It will get easier. And enjoy your long weekend. :)
