First Day

The day I'd dreaded.  The day I wasn't ready for.  The day I wished would just be over so I wouldn't have to experience it.

I got up extra early to be sure I had all my stuff, and especially JJ's stuff, ready to go.  Also to be sure I had enough time to feed him and get myself ready.

While getting ready I picked up my tube of mascara.  I looked at it.  Then I decided to skip it.  Best decision of the day.

I dropped the little man off at my parents.  Hung out for awhile, then decided I better get out of there.  I cried all the way to work.  All the way.

Almost broke down a couple times at work when people asked me about JJ or how I was doing or where he was or what the weather was like.  (Almost.  Luckily I held it together.)

There is no longer drive than the drive to pick up your baby!  Fifteen minutes feels like fifteen hours. 

Long story short, I survived.  The second day was even easier.  No tears!  And really, 2 days a week is not that much.  JJ gets spoiled by Grammy and Grampy, I make a little money and have some adult interaction.  :) 

Now I have to figure out how to balance it all...beginning today with house cleaning, dishes and laundry!!

Well I for one am thrilled to have you back, and you should feel extra special because we are moving the meeting for you....they don't do that for just anyone you know. If I can do anything to make it easier for you, let me know. P.S. you look great!
