The past two weeks have flown by in a blur... I can't believe that I'm back to work (it seriously feels like I just had C-McC) and there is no way that TT is in preschool... goodness he's just a wee toddler. Right?
Oh dear god, I'm deep in denial! I have a three year old... who loves preschool and I have a one year old who needs to be rocked (or nursed) to sleep (thank goodness my my childcare provider obliges). And me, I'm a working mama!
What a weird feeling, to be thrust back into the work place... where the "work you" has been stagnant (in my case for 54 weeks) and all your coworkers have been trucking along. The things that you forget in 54 weeks (I had a panic attack the night before my day back... I couldn't remember my employee number and I did.not.want.to.have.to.ask.someone.for.it). I'm definitely working my way into a groove... but it's weird, others have taken on my tasks and I'm not sure how to go about asking for them back. Certain things I've just had to dive in (and hope to god I still know what I'm going).
I'm happy to be back but I seriously underestimated how much I would miss my munchkins!
Evenings here are a clusterfuck (pardon my French), the hubs and I get home jam some supper into the waiting gullets of TT & C-McC, toss them in the tub (kidding... we gently give them a bath), up to bed goes TT around 8-8:30 and then there are snuggles on the couch for the hubs, moi and C-McC. We fall into bed and start all over again the next morning. Some evenings we fit in a family stroll... others we just veg.
I'm seriously looking at a meal planning website, Relish. Something where I can input a weeks worth of meals and it will spit out what I need. Reduce the thinking about supper and the trips to the store (because I don't know about you, but I cannot go to the grocery store and buy only the thing that I actually need). I think this might help to simplify things for me (I wonder if they have a crockpot option.. I love my crockpot).
