working hard or hardly working

Steve watched Brandon for a few hours on Saturday while I went into work to complete my quarterly reports. It felt good being back at work, even though no one was there to chat with. I can’t believe I’ve missed work. I thought I’d be like Ron Livingston on Office Space for these three months, but instead I discovered I actually like working. I miss the sense of purpose I had each day. Now, I have to check my cell phone sometimes to see what day of the week it is.

I know I have a sense of purpose as a mom, too. I know that these days where it seems like nothing gets done are actually productive because I’m raising a baby to become a strapping young lad. But I do miss the accomplishments. An accomplishment for me now is getting a shower in. So today I vacuumed and dusted and smiled at my work. At least something got done. Between that, the shower, and the pilates video, today was a productive day.

And I will take advantage of these nameless days for the next few weeks, because before I know it, I’ll be back at work longing for the days of watching “Hoarders” on the couch while cooing at my sweet baby Brandon. And fingers crossed, he’ll be sleeping through the night by then. Otherwise, I’m going to be a real bitch to work with.

  1. Holly – just FYI – be careful with the pilates so soon. I've always been told to wait until the 6 week checkup for yourself to make sure your abs still aren't separated before exercising.
