I had been moved from one office to another while I was gone, so I had to unpack everything and hang all my stuff up on the walls of the new office. I brought lots of pictures of Brooklyn with me to keep in my office, so that I could still look at her pretty face. I got 5 new cases to work on. (Ouch!!! So much for easing back in!) Lots of coworkers came by to chat and say welcome back, which was nice. Every time I called my mom, I could hear Brooklyn cooing and playing in the background. Oh, and hubby sent me this gorgeous bouquet of flowers to cheer me up. Isn't he thoughtful???
I was running on about 2 hours of sleep, so by about 4:30 p.m., I was crashing! But I got all excited about seeing Brooklyn while I was driving home. I was sooooo happy to get home and snuggle my sweet little baby bear. It's hard to explain how great it felt to just hold her and hug her and kiss her! I missed her sooooo much.
All in all, today was not a bad day. I am pleasantly shocked. Don't get me wrong, I still don't want to be a working mom. But if things continue the way they were today, at least it could be bearable for now.
