Today is Sunday, which means I return to work this week.
I return to work this week.
I have been oddly calm and zen about it until tonight. Tonight we were out to dinner at Longhorn (The Husband’s choice after my choice last night for our Valentine’s Day dinner) and as we were driving home I felt the tears. They fell slowly and silently and quickly. A momentary event that lasted as long as the red light we had stopped at during our travels.
He has been my near constant companion for the past 13+ weeks. My bestie. I’ve enjoyed seeing things through his eyes. His babbles and smiles. They make my heart happy. He’s amazing and the best (no, not biased at all! haha.) Of course I’ve had moments away – to go to the gym, for an occasional date night, for a dinner or brunch with a friend. And I certainly did enjoy those times, a breathe of fresh air after being cooped in the house on the short, cold, winter snowy days. I enjoyed not having to go out in the cold or snow, not being forced to do so, but also enjoyed the few hours of being an individual when I did get a solo outing.
I remind myself – I will be out of the house Wednesday. And, as I mentioned in this post, my request to work from home on Thursdays was approved. So I will work from home the day after I return and be with him then. I will be out of the house Friday. So really it’s only two days away this week, with a day home to break it up in between and then the weekend. I can do that. The company also made a corporate wide announcement last week which may lead to some big changes for me and my team later in the year. It will certainly keep things interesting and has provided for much speculation in the (almost) week since it was announced.
I purchased two rings today, one for The Husband and one for McLovin. I wish I would have them here to wear for Wednesday, but that’s my fault for not ordering sooner I guess. I also signed up for my first post-baby 5K. And, Big Little Lies begins on HBO. I enjoyed the book and am looking forward to the show – especially since my favorite viking vampire is in it! Alexander Skarsgard is my favorite Swedish import.
