1St day back as part time

It feels good to work half days again. I guess I have gotten used of the full days because I felt like I was missing something when I saw the clock and realized I had half an hour left of my shift.. I was making plans for my lunch break at 11.. Even though my shift ended at 10:30 ha ha ha

I got home.. Looked at the clock a half dozen times and finally.. Did something I haven’t done in weeks..

I took a nap with the baby..

Ahhhhh.. 2 blissful hours or rest & relaxation snuggled up to the sweetest 1 year old in the whole world..

Tomorrow is my birthday.. Part of me wants to be excited about it.. Another part of me knows it its going to be “just another day”..

Work, come home, nap with the baby, clean, cook dinner.. rinse & repeat..

I wish my birthdays were bigger deal.. Sadly I have been left in the background.. Perhaps that its my fault.. I could make a bigger deal out of it..

What do you do on your birthday?

There is always next year?

I have been having a “it must be just one of those days” day for 6 says in a row now..

Friday: I missed Kaylees one year checkup & shots.. I kept picturing my baby crying with no mommy to soothe her breaking heart

*Sigh* it is just one of those days..

Saturday & Sunday: A very upset baby was suffering from the side effects of her immunizations.. She was being very clingy and needy which would be fine except that my other baby came home from school with head lice..

With all that, you really can’t expect to have a good weekend..

Monday: I was suppose to be enjoying a day off, instead I was keeping Sarah home from school to finish cleaning her head while the boyfriend went to work and I had to listen to the baby cry because all she wanted was to snuggle and I couldn’t have her near me because I had her sister sitting I’m front of me with live eggs & lice in her hair..

Crap right? It is just another over of those days..

Tuesday: I went to work on Monday mode.. I got everything ready with time to spare.. Then realized that I set out the wrong food. I did the Monday prep with the Monday food on a Tuesday.. What a waste of time & food..

It is looking like those days are contagious on each other..

Wednesday: I was determined to have a better day.. I got out of bed half an hour early.. Thought that grabbing a drink before going to work would help wake me up.. I tossed my uniform shirt on the counter.. Grabbed a drink, turned around to grab my shirt only to see it sitting in dirty water in sink

I spent the first 15 minutes of my shift in the bathroom using the hand dryer to dry my shirt..

When am I going to catch a break?

Thursday: Just when I think my week can’t possibly get any worse.. I am up half the night with a baby who just won’t sleep.. Until about 4am.. I finally fall asleep with her.. Then I wake up to a baby nudging me for a morning feed.. I sleepily snuggle her and grab my phone to see how much time I have before my alarm clock goes off..

I slept through it.. I am now 25 minutes late for work.. Laying in bed.. No shower.. Not dressed.. Crap!

How the hell have I had 6 bad days in a row?!?!

As a customer said to me today.. There is always next year…

Man.. I am glad that tomorrow is my last days of full time hours.. The weekend can’t come soon enough..

I heart spam <3

They are my biggest comments.. I have been taking a sabbatical from writing lately because working fulltime & starting up nights with a cranky baby doesn’t make for good blogging material..

The baby got her 1 year immunizations and didn’t take to them as easily as she did her other shots.. 19 hour days and 5 hours of broken sleep has caught up with me.. I can’t wait for this week to end.. The extra money isn’t worth it..

My milk has depleted, my baby misses me & I am just plain exhausted..

Time to try out fenugreek.. I hear wonderful things about it.

What have you been up to since I have been away? Did you notice that I stopped writing?

Back to afternoons

I am working both shifts now so my blogs will be in the afternoons again. I an going to miss my afternoon nap..

On the bright side I am getting more money for working fulltime hours so yay for house hunting money!

My baby turns 1 tomorrow she is growing too fast..then again so is my 11 year old..

My boss didn’t realize that I asked for the entire day off tomorrow and is frantically making phone calls to have someone covert my shift in the morning..

I hope he doesn’t ask me to work on my babies first birthday..

Sorry my blog isn’t more interesting.. I can’t concentrate because I am on a ton of pain. I need to nurse my baby like you wouldn’t believe..

I am a busy little bee today

I was run ragged and back again.. Haha.. We are a small place in a gov’t building.. So I was expecting it to be a typical slow Friday.. Boy was I in for a surprise..

Over 200 bagels orders, Probably 300 orders in total.. In 4 hours.. I had the poor cook out at the sandwich bar with me and making back up everything & was still running out of everything faster than she could back it up.

Great day for business.. Terrible for me.. I am so tired now..

And the babys birthday is this Tuesday.. So my weekend is going to be busy as well.. Followed by next week.. Which I am working both my New shift AND former shift combined as the afternoon girl is going on a 2 week vacation..

Fabulous.. I mean.. Great for the money.. But boy am I going to miss afternoon naps..

What are you doing this weekend?

Sugar Hangover

So the babes had fun trick or treating.. The cat went out twice and used a dumping bag part way through both..

Part way through the second trip she started complaining that she was trick or treating by herself.. I asked her if she wanted to just go home then.. She said no and her mood got considerably better..

That may have had something to do with my saying: If you aren’t having fun anymore it must mean you are done for the night and don’t want anymore free candy..

The cupcake fell asleep after the first run.. So she slept in the stroller as the kitty added a cape to the costume..

Ahhh yes.. The infamous batcat.. Nothing says Halloween quite like it..

We didn’t get home until 11pm.. Quite the night.. The 11 year old had a serious sugar crash and was out like a light in less than 5 minutes of her head hitting the pillow..

I myself went to sleep pretty quickly.. The baby quietly played beside me until she eventually did her nightly faceplant into the mattress for her traditional sleeping with her little diaper bum in the air..

So friggen cute..

I would like to say that everything has been smooth sailing.. But I have been making all sorts of silly mistakes at work.. And yawning all morning.. Thank goodness it was a slow morning at work.. I don’t know what I would have done otherwise.

The baby and I are going to have a siesta(spelling?) Even if she doesn’t fall asleep.. I will at least get some rest before the rest of the day bombards me..
