Posts Tagged ‘life after baby’

Well hello there……. yes, it’s me.  I know, I’ve fallen off the face of the earth and you’ve been desperately wondering where I am.  Well, if you follow me on Facebook (and if you don’t, now is a good time to do so because when I’m absurdly busy I can usually find 2 seconds to post there.  Just click here ——>   The Hubby Diaries on Facebook) you know that my maternity leave ended and I went back to work last week.  It’s been a full 2 weeks now that I’ve returned to my old job.   And well, let’s just say, it’s like they stopped doing my job while I was gone and just let it pile up on my desk for months, only to happily say to me upon my return, “Welcome back!  Here’s 4 months of work for you to do….  and oh, by the way, it’s all due in 3 weeks”.    They seemingly don’t care that my priorities are different now.  That working 12 hours days doesn’t fit nicely into my new life, or that I have a hubby who is about ready to hop on a plane to Anywhere, USA (anywhere that’s not our house at least) to get a break from full time baby duty.


Yes folks. I’m literally averaging 12 hour days between the time I leave my house in the morning and park in my driveway at night.  On one impressively fun day, I left my house at 7:30am and returned at 10pm.  And, no.. that’s not a joke.   And yes, it’s absurd since my post-baby bed time is between 9-9:30pm  (our mini-hubby likes to lovingly wake us up during the night still).  So in essence, my job forced me to work past my bedtime.   WHAT THE HELL????!!!!!


So… since I’m sort of at a loss for words. And, I only have a small window of awakeness to type this post, I figured I’d give you a glimpse into our lives in pictures………….


This is what we used to look like
