Parenting after a Loss

Working Moms Check in

(technically I'm unemployed, but whatever)

Ok ladies, 2 ups and 2 downs.

QOTW: would you eat shark? Why or why not?

Re: Working Moms Check in

  • Ups:

    * I get to work at home which means jeans, t shirts and no makeup
    * I use my brain for something other than finger food and Elmo


    * I worry that DS isn't getting enough "education" during the day or a set schedule of activities
    * I am paying for daycare (this will stop in December/January though)

    I would eat shark.  I will try almost anything at least once.

  • Ups:

    1.  I'm only working two days this week

    2.  I have an office and can close to the door at anytime



    1.  I'm at work today and I'm busy

    2.  MIL is watching DD today and I hate how she thinks that when DH is out of town she seems to be in aww that I can juggle being a mom who works, takes care of the house, does 'man chores' (ie mow the lawn, take out trash) and be pregnant at the same time.

  • Ups: We are halfway through the week.  I have almost completed 4 out of the 32  weeks of the school year.

    Downs: My grandpa is in the hospital again.  I wish I was with DD.

    QOTW: I wouldn't eat shark.  I hate any type of seafood, so it just doesn't sound appealing.

  • Up: Had a vacation last week and it was fabulous. DD and I are taking my BFF and her little girl out for birthday treats this weekend which will be fun.

    Down. DH started school last night (also really an up) but we're not going to see much of each other now I feel. LO cannot STTN anymore and its slowly killing me.

    QOTW: No. I feel like they're kind of badasses and should be respected and not eaten. Though I will try just about anything once.

  • Yes Tomorrow is pay day!!

    Yes Today was a good drop off day at DC.  Yesterday, C cried when I dropped him off, today he damn near jumped from my arms to his "teacher."  I like days when he doesn't cry when I leave him.

    No Some bitter_ass client filed an ethical complaint against me and my firm.  It's no big deal and I'm not worried, it's just a hassle.

    No I fought with DH last night b/c he was b*tching and complaining about his iPhone charger not working when I was up with a wide awake baby at midnight.  Come to me when you have a real problem, like no sleep in the near future!!

    QOTD: I'd try it.  I've had alligator before and it wasn't half bad, so I can't imagine shark would be bad either.

  • Ups

    - DH is off Wednesday. That means he does the cooking, runs errands and picks up DS early.
    - I took a walk by myself this afternoon. It felt great.

    - Wednesday is our 2 hour department meeting and it always is annoying. (I guess this should be an up since it is done but I hate it so I am keeping it here.)
    - Work is getting crazy and I have a harder time being on for DS after being on for the kiddos at school all day.
