Today was my first day back to work. I got up bright and early at 6am (ok, so I didn't really "get up"...I had merely dozed off for 20 minutes after Declan's 4:45am feeding) and got ready to head off to Dec's new daycare. It was a smooth "drop off" and I didn't feel like a blubbery mess or anything. (Should I?? I hear most mommies are!) I knew he was in great hands. I pulled up at my office and my phone rang. It was a client that purchased a house through me and he was letting me know his financing fell through (thanks crappy economy and loan changes). He asked that I called the sellers to let them know he had to back out. Oh joy. Welcome back after 6 weeks off.
The rest of my day went great. It was nice to get back in the swing of things and see my co-workers and stuff. I have to admit that I laid down for an hour when I went home for lunch. I slept HARD because I wasn't listening for a monitor or anything. On my way back to the office I stopped at a gas station and got a 32 oz Diet Mt. Dew. I think caffeine is going to be playing a bigger role in my life.
I learned that there is a big difference in being sleep deprived and staying home with Declan and being sleep deprived and required to sound intelligent and confident to clients. Oh boy. The reason I titled my blog "vacation" is because I was asked FOUR times today how my vacation was. I held back my true response but inside I was thinking: "are you FREAKING kidding me..caring for a newborn is sooo far from a vacation!!!" But, I responded that I really enjoyed my time with my son. Those words fumbled out of my mouth awkwardly. I have a son? Oh, yes, I do. Craziness.
I'll leave y'all with a cute picture. We are transitioning out of newborn clothes and in to 3 month clothes. *sniff sniff*
