Well I just finished my first week of full-time work in 4 years.  It was rough but the girls I survived.  What really stinks is that my oldest daughter's (Chiara) school starts at 8 so that means we have to be out of the house by 6:50 to drop of Gianna (2yr old) at daycare and then I drive like crazy to get Chiara to school.  I then sit around for an hour because I don't start work until 9.  Then at 5 I do the mad dash to pick Chiara up at after school care and Gianna at daycare.  A very stressful start and finish to everyday.  Yet one more reason why being a single Mom sucks!

As for the job - not what I was hoping it would be (are they ever?) but it fills the requirement for now until something better comes along.  On the plus side I get to "dress up" in work clothes again, have adult conversation with actual adults, and have a whole hour to eat lunch by myself!  Have to find the positive side and remember it !

I feel the pain of the morning routine. It is about to start in a week. I am so nervous about getting out of the house in time and I am not a morning person.

Drop me a line when you return from ur vacation.
