Being back at work SUCKS!
I was all excited and loving it last week...but this week has been a drag. It feels like I have been out of the loop for so long it will take months to get bck in the swing of things. All of my in progress projects were left at a dead standstill because the person who was supposed to follow up on them completely dropped the ball. (That's a whole other post...) And now I've got to try and get my own stuff done and gear up for my partner to go on maternity leave!
We still haven't gotten a good schedule worked out so I feel constatnly exhausted. Little man still doesn't come close to sleeping through the night. So I'm up with him at least two times. And by the time he wakes up the second time it's almost time for me to get up and start getting ready so I usually end up laying awake until the alarm goes off. (whine, whine, whine...)
I don't know how much longer BF is going to last. Pumping while at the office is just plain wierd and completely uncomfortable. My office does have a door, but not a lock, so there is the constant fear that someone will just walk in. Then there is also the fact that I work with a bunch of old men who could really care less about babies and motherhood and all the issues that go along with that.
We had an appointment with a studio from England last week. I mentioned that I was just back after being out for 8 weeks on maternity leave. He mentioned that in England mothers get 1 year after a baby is born! I'm so jealous!
