First Day Back

It was my first day back to work, it actually wasn’t so bad because I only went into the office for a couple hours. I needed to ensure I could successfully login to everything before I work from home for the next two weeks. I am very fortunate that I can adjust to working again by being at home before going fully back into the office. I have a pretty fantastic boss!

Today went pretty smoothly. I got up and got ready, this was a whole new experience because since I moved in with my now husband I’ve had my own room for clothes and getting dressed, Emmett has since taken that room. Now I need to get ready in our shared bedroom and try not to wake him up. I would have done an okay job had Emmett not decided to wake up right about then, Seamus needed to care for him so I could finish getting ready.

Seamus was lucky enough to not have to work today due to Columbus Day so Emmett stayed home with daddy. This made leaving really easy, I knew Emmett would be well cared for.

I got to work, quickly logged into everything, said hello to a few people and let people know when I would be fully back in the office and headed back home, where I set up shop.

The rest of the morning and afternoon was spent going through emails. I’ve been out of work since mid July and I had accumulated 1501 emails! Many I can just delete but there are so many that include department and company updates that I need to skim through them and file them away. I got through 500 today, not too shabby!

This was the view from my work area today. I don’t think it can get any better!!

How was everyone was your Monday?

A Visit With Auntie!

What a wonderful rainy, gloomy Tuesday!

I loved that when I woke up with Emmett at quarter to 6, that I heard the rain. We had a phenomenal sunny and warm summer and now I am ready for the chillier weather that Autumn will bring.

Breakfast this morning was pretty much the same as yesterday.

Zucchini Cornbread Quiche – Today I added cheese for no other reason than I LOVE cheese!

1 whole tomato

glass of OJ

Once I return to work, Emmett will need to be taken care of because unfortunately we cannot afford to be a single income family. E will go to day care on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, Tuesdays his Aunt Bridget (my baby sister) will watch him for us and Wednesdays I will be working from home.

When Bridget suggested she watch E one day a week, back when I was about 6 months pregnant, I thought she was joking around but she was very serious. She worked with her college adviser and created a schedule that gave her one day off a week, which worked out to be Tuesdays. We are so grateful for this because it will help save us $50+ a day by not having to take E to day care on that day.

Since college started almost a month ago and I still have not returned to work, Bridget has come up to visit us on Tuesdays since she has them free anyhow. It’s always nice having Bridget come up because while she’s playing with E, I can shower or get some things done around the house. It’s also great because it gives Emmett the chance to get to know his Aunt Bridget before just being left with her when I return to work.

It looks like Emmett is saying, “No more pictures, please!”

Emmett was in a pretty good mood while Bridget was here, so she got to spend some quality time with him. He has days where he is very cranky and is constantly blowing off steam but not today, today was a good day! There were coos and wiggles and lots of love!

So how about you, who did or will care for your child/children when you return(ed) to work?
