Work isn't for the weak...

I can't talk about what I do. It's part of the joys of being me. And, learning from other people's past mistakes with blogs and jobs, I cannot and will not go there. Just let it be known that some days, I want to pull my hair out b/c of what I do and who I have to deal with.

On another note, Baby has his 2 month shots tomorrow. I understand that it's not going to be fun, but I don't think that I am prepared for what is really going to happen. As I type, Baby is sleeping in my lap, as sweet as can be. I cannot imagine him screaming his head off tomorrow. I'll write about the horrific experience tomorrow. Wish me luck!

Oh Sunday isn't Funday

So, no relaxation for me today. Baby hasn't made poo since Friday afternoon. I spoke with the doctor and she said to give him diluted prune juice. So, we did as instructed and he threw it up. Big time. But, he did make a little itty bitty poop. So, Hubs decided that it would be a good idea to give him a teaspoon right before I fed him so that it would be easier on him. And that hasn't had any wonderful effects yet. But, he did keep it down, so hopefully sometime tonight, we'll hear and smell something awful and wonderful.

I have to figure out how to balance weekend relaxation with getting everything done and spending time with the baby. Yesterday was my "busy" day, and today was supposed to be for relaxing. Well, that didn't happen. Now, I feel exhausted and run down. Tomorrow starts a busy week, with Michael getting his two month old shots on Tuesday. However, I do have Friday-Monday off for Labor day, so Friday I might just stay in bed while Hubs is at work and Baby is at day care. Is that awful?

I found some of the cutest clothes for Baby this weekend at Baby Gap, Gymboree, and Children's Place. I haven't had any luck at the last two stores until today. Baby has to look super cool so he can get a good girlfriend at day care!

Oh glorious weekends!

How I live for you now. I am always amazed by how much I have to do over the course of 2 short days. But, today was wonderful, and we got a lot accomplished. Cleaning, laundry, cuddling with Baby, and running errands to boot!

Speaking of... while we were driving to look at the new Baby R Us store (opening soon...yea!!!) we saw 4 teenagers panhandling. Their signs just said donate, please help, support us... etc... And then one guy's shirt said "For College." I just couldn't believe that they were begging for money. If they were actually going to use the money for school, that is one interesting way to raise funds. I just don't know if I believed them or not. It doesn't really matter b/c i didn't have any cash on me. Not even change. I know, how horrible.

Tomorrow promises to be a great day of relaxation. If that actually happens, then it'd be great. Here's hoping!

Trying this thing out

I'm sitting at work, bored out of my mind. So, here I go. I am missing my son like crazy! He's turned 2 months old yesterday, and he's growing uncontrollably. I don't know where the time has gone. I am trying to get back to myself, sometimes it's hard. My husband pointed out to me yesterday that I'm not the same person I was 2 years ago. I know that having a baby will change things, but he was right. I want to be the person that I was. And, I'm trying to come back to that. Maybe this will help, writing and venting a little. The problem is I live half the world away from my family and friends from home. I've got my military friends, but I miss my core group. That's a part of growing up, and moving on, but it sucks. I need to get my strength back. Trying to balance a career and a family is not easy, especially being in the Navy. I will be able to do this, I just am going to have to try a little harder.
