Back to work

Being back to work is working well for me. I am really enjoying it. Though I must admit, I don't enjoy it when I have down time at work like I used to (luckily, I am busy enough that I have only had a few moments like that). It is strange though. I feel like I really like working and I feel like I am doing something good for the world in general. But when there is downtime, I wish I was home just being silly with Audrey for 5 or 10 minutes.

The real adjustment has been the hours. I am not used to waking up at 5:15 in the morning and being out the door by 5:50. I get into work at 6:30. I really love doing 4 10 hour days instead of 5 8 hour days, but I really don't have a whole lot of time at home to lounge about during my work week. I really have to be in bed by 9:15 or else I don't feel like a very happy camper. Which means that I am getting ready for bed around 8:45 - it is almost like being a kid again (I had a bedtime all the way through high-school - 9:30).

Audrey is adjusting pretty well to me being gone. We just finished our second full week of Genny being here and Audrey was actually fussier this week than last (for me, she gives G no problems at all). She is also waking up really early too - 6 ish. I am hoping once she adjusts, she will get back to her normal sleep habits - 7:30 ish pm - am. But she still seems to be her happy self.

I'm really glad to hear that it is all working out for you. I know that Genny loves being able to spend time with Audrey and you.

Those hours sound brutal. I would never be able to do it. More power to ya!
