>today has been exhausting

Beware of reading this post. It will probably be full of whining and complaining but I have to vent somewhere! I figure it’s okay since this is a substitute for my “journal.” 

I started working again a few days ago. Luckily, the company I work for has been amazing and offered to let me work from home part time. What a blessing! I’m so thankful. Today I had to go into the office to get things set up and for them to explain exactly what is expected of me. I started my trek down to Dallas at 10:00 AM (we left on time – go us!). It took us about an hour to get down there (which made me realize how much I do NOT miss the commute!). I brought Holden with me today because I’m going to wait a little longer until I introduce the bottle to him. Wowowow…my boss was so understanding (and he doesn’t even have kids!). I had to take breaks to change him…nurse him…soothe him…all the while worrying that my boss is going to fire me. It’s so much easier working when I’m at home. I can nurse & work, work while he naps, work while he chills in his bouncer, etc. Since I was working from 10:00AM-4:00PM, Holden only got about a 30 minute nap and our nursing schedule was all over the place! All of those components do not equal a happy baby. Considering all of that though, he tolerated it very well. 

Lucky for me he slept most of the car ride home instead of screaming his head off :). Oh the little things…then at home Holden had an exploding diaper which he almost never has, he peed all over himself and me when I was changing his diaper (yuck, it even went in his mouth and all over his face. I have a hard time not laughing at that though…), and earlier at Pinkberry he spewed all over me. I’ve been spit up on, pooped on, and peed on. At least those are really the only things that could come out of his body. I hit the trifecta! Phew, today has tested my patience. And now my husband’s laptop (which I guess is mine since he passed it down to me) has eaten the CD I need for work. 

You know what could cure my grumpiness? A HUGE BAR OF CHOCOLATE. But guess what – I can’t have chocolate!! What else could I have…maybe I’ll make a cake. I need some dessert with a bunch of calories to munch on or maybe an old fashioned cry session. Alright, I’m done. If you read this post, I’m sorry. My next post will be back to happy Jen, I promise. You know, I just thought of what will cheer me up. The fact that Big Bang Theory, Grey’s Anatomy, Vampire Diaries, and Bones are all on tonight.

I have to add at least some positive things in here so I’ll list some current blessings in my life:
my sweet baby boy, Holden
my trooper of a husband, Allan
working from home (with benefits!!!)
