My return to work last week went wonderfully. Each morning Jillian got up just after my shower and between Jeramy and I she got a bottle and diaper change. Then I head off and he drops Jillian off at his mom's on his way to work. I get home a couple hours before them in the evening since he is working 10 hours, and I'm using that extra time to get the house packed up for the move. It is strange to be home with just Cujo...that hasn't happened since before Jillian was born. Everybody at work was thrilled to see me (perhaps too happy even). Pictures of the little missy were in high demand, and I was more than happy to provide them. For the most part I was too busy to think about how much I missed her. If the first two days were an indicator, I'll be plenty content to be a working mom. Of course I feel like I'm still in a honeymoon period with work right now, so ask me how I feel again in a month!
The weekend was busy. I spent Saturday morning packing up the office. The I took Jillian over to see Jeramy's dad and stepmom's house to see if I could help distract them some from their sadness. A smiley Jillian helped a little bit perhaps. That evening we went to the bowling alley for a surprise party for our friend. Then after a late night we headed out for a 9am breakfast on Sunday with friends (which seemed horribly early when it shouldn't have) and then visited other friends in the afternoon. Oh and I squeezed in some laundry somewhere. I should have packed more. I should have cleaned more. I should have gotten the grocery shopping done. I really need to get me an "Alice" like the Brady Bunch had.
Anyhow here are some of the highlights from our weekend:
