overwhelmed

Filed under: family, musings — freeformkatia @ 3:06 pm

Today is my first day back at work. I’m reeling. So, I’ve been awake since 4:30am when Mads woke up to nurse. Our alarm is set for 5:30am — so I didn’t get back to sleep at all after Mads was done. I was at work at 7:30am and managed to filter through my emails by 9am. Thank goodness for the delete key. Amen.

Here at work I got a crash course on the state of my projects and a crash course on the new cataloguing software. Add to the fact that it’s an almost 10 hour work day with my new condensed schedule, I also had to pump 3x and get no real lunch break because of that. sigh. Of course, the day doesn’t end there because once I get home Mads will want to nurse, Maja will want attention, and I have to make dinner. After the kids go to bed Richard and I will work to get everything ready for tomorrow, so we don’t have a mad and frantic morning.

I guess I should be thankful that I only have to do this 4 days a week!

  1. Wow! That’s overwhelming. I don’t know what else to say except you have my sympathies. 4 days is better than 5 but a condensed schedule sounds like a blessing AND a curse.

    Be gentle with yourself. You will get the hang of the daily grind again.

  2. Hang in there, good luck. Hope you don’t have too rough a time with this schedule…at least M2 is sleeping through the bulk of the night?
