Making Adjustments

I have been back to work for two days now. The work part is fine, it is all the life adjustments that will take a few weeks to fall back into place.

  • Hearing the alarm go off at 5:50am
  • Having to wake the girls up early (6:50) to be out the door by 7:15 (thankfully this is not a routine that we have to get used to, but this week I am working everyday, and the girls are in a few different places for care)
  • Having to make lunches and layout clothes the night before
  • Having to balance my time after work with the girls
  • Having to deal with melt downs, because something/someone took my attention for a few min, after being away all day (something Rebekah saw first hand tonight), it's not pretty
  • Having to squeeze a days worth of fun, reading, talking, and playing into a few hours, which also has to include making dinner, eating, baths, getting ready for bed, reading, and praying
  • Having to clean-up and get ready for the next day after they go to bed, before I can sit down to have a few mins. to myself

In a few weeks these things will be just part of life again, and it will all seem normal, but until then, we just take it one day at a time. I WILL once again find the balance of being a mom, wife and working woman, it it just going to take time and PATIENCE.

Happy Back-To-School! If you ever get in a bind and need some last minute childcare, please don't hesitate to give me a call! Madalyn would love having guests and you could even visit at lunch :). Hope this year is awesome!

Soooo glad you snagged some purses! Shucks about having to purchase a few extra to save money in the end, huh?! :) Don't you just hate when that happens?! I hope they turn out to be as cute as they look. I just couldn't get over those prices.

Well, I am looking forward to tomorrow with the girls! They get to stay home and nap in their own beds! YAY! i just noticed this was written last i am a little behind on my blog reading! I've been a busy girl!

Running after the heart of the Father. Seeking His face in All things. Walking His will out in my life. These are the desires of my heart. Along the way I am a wife and mom who wants to capture memories that will last a life time.
