I know she’s probably got that ball of stress in the pit of her stomach right now at the thought of coming back to work after maternity leave. She’s probably packing up her older daughter’s belongings for day care and prepping the baby by pumping milk and getting the feedings ready. She’s spent weeks thinking about what she’ll wear on her first day back in the office and then there’s dinner to put on the table. Then she’s thinking – how on earth am I going to get everything done at home and at work and what will commuting be like and can I do the “mom of 2, full time working” thing and am I ready to go back and about 1000 other thoughts. BUT. I am BEYOND excited to get my office buddy back. SWF is my therapist, breakfast date, lunch date, fashion consultant, TV recap conversationalist, bestie, colleague and oh yeah, we work on the same team. How lucky am I to work with her??
I spoke to SWF multiple times a week while she was off and saw her frequently, but it will not be nearly as exciting as having access to her for the entire work day. Hopefully it will be a quiet week as many are out on vacation.
OK, back to writing here. Pre-season football is on, which means The Husband is busy doing mock drafts in preparation for his fantasy league. We did manage to break away to see “Blue Jasmine,” today – the Woody Allen movie where Ali Fedotowsky makes a short appearance. The acting was very well done, but boy was it a depressing story.
Wishing you a speedy work week and that Friday comes before you know it!
