Week 2

Well, I survived my first work week! (phew!)

The first day was a lot harder on me than I had thought.
I think it was rements of my night before my first day cry...
I just couldn't sleep, and thinking about all the little things I was going to miss out on now, made me really sad.
I thought the world would stop if I was away!

But honestly, the boys hardly know the difference.
Kyle changed his work schedule, so now he is the one that gets to take them all the school and he picks them up, and by the time they all get home...I'm back :)
Being off at 2 is great and walking up at 5 each morning really hasn't been too bad. It's peaceful, and I get to see the sunrise.

Except for early am drivers; they are the most rowdy, intense bunch of commuters! And I just don't drive fast enough for them! I think I've been honked at, yelled at and have had brights flashed on me each day...but I'm not getting a ticket for those crazy folks, so I'll keep on doing what I do.

Through all this though I'm learning such a valuable lesson to lean on my husband more.
I have a serious tendency to think I can do it all, so I constantly assume all this responsibility and become weighed down by it...supermommy syndrome.

But now the whole dynamic of our family shifted and it's honestly helped us more than it has hindered us...(at least for now anyway).
