I am sooooo glad the last two weeks are over. I have gained a whole new respect for working moms. I started a new job at a residential treatment center and have been working non kid-friendly hours. My kids have been thrown around to their grandmas way too much.
But, I am happy to say those 2 weeks are over, and I will be able to be a mom again. My schedule will be much more kid friendly. And, when I say that I mean that I will be working when they sleep. Crazy. It is even crazier than you think. While you are catching a good night’s rest, I will be working away. But, treatment for mental illness and addiction works around the clock. J
I am at work right now….4:27am. I am freaking tired!! I sure hope that I can get use to this craziness. But, I will say that, for me, it is better than having people watch my kids every single day.
I have so much respect for working moms. I am not quite sure how they do it. You should see my kitchen. I am pretty sure there is not a clean dish to be seen. And, if you want something for dinner my kitchen is the WRONG place for you these last 2 weeks. And, let’s not even talk about clean clothes. My laundry room is a war zone.
How in the blankity blank do moms work all day, take care of their kids, and keep things together at home? Poor Chase. I am sure he is wondering how we are even living in such conditions!!! I have seriously felt like an absentee mother these last two weeks. Perhaps other working moms can hack it, but man it has been rough for me.
Those 2 weeks have come to a blessed end. I couldn’t be happier. And, I can only imagine how Chase is feeling. :) Now I just need to figure out this whole sleeping business. I sure hope I don’t start hallucinating with this lack of sleep….
