Back to Work and 2011

Tommorow is my first day back to work. I have been basically not dealing, cause I don’t have a choice. I have tried not to think about it until I had to, so I could enjoy my remaining time home and not be stressed out thinking about it ending. It’s a mixed emotional bag really, I do look forward to dressing up in my work attire, putting on makeup, having somewere to go everyday, having some time to be old me as Jaime and not as Evangelines mom. On the other hand, I don’t need 5 says a week, in a perfect world I could work 3 days a week and have 4 days a week to spend with her. Unfortunatly, we don’t live in an ideal world, and I have a large student loan I took out to attain this career I return to.
I am despretly sad, I hate leaving her so deeply, I just hope it does get easier as people promise me it will. I am happy her Dad will be home with her mist of this week and our care provider is the back up
plan, that helps for sure.

Moving on, I will make this my new years post as well, since I don’t have time now to do a seperate entry. So without furthur ado, here are my hopes and goals for 2011:
Be a better, more self assured and less anxious mom.
Be a better, more doting, loving and involved wife.
Get my own car so managing E. Will be less tricky with two working parents on differant schedules.
Take steps toward finding work in NB, selling my house in NS and moving closer to my family
Get my current size 14 butt back into my size 12 jeans stored away in the basement. Do this by exercising more, cutting portion sizes by half and make up the rest with veggies.

2010 was good to us, I hope 2011 is even better. After
Many craptastic years, we deserve it.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.
