you know what, getting out of bed wasn't that bad at all. bjl woke up to eat right on schedule, but she wouldn't go back to sleep like she normally does, so leaving for work was what was difficult.
yesterday was a lot of fun.. my dad did his new years ceremony thing in chinatown, and then his extremely wealthy friend treated us all (a total of about 18 people) to dinner at snoqualmie buffet. king crab legs. mmmmmmm.
first day back to work has been as expected. hypothetical firefighting. boo.

I'm at work today, and I didn't want to get out of bed this morning. I pretty much had a terrible night's sleep, and J had an even worse one. He didn't get to sleep until after 3am, so he's WFH today. I went ahead and took M to the nanny's because J wouldn't have gotten anything done if she'd stayed at home with him, too.
Anyway, should be a good day, I'm working with the ARNP today, and her schedule is super light. It'll probably fill up, but I'm hoping people will stay home today.
I overslept this morning. I worked on Monday so it doesn't seem toooo bad to be at work today, but I'm still not feeling great.
I worked a chunk of yesterday, but there's still a ton to get done today. If I feel better this afternoon I will head to the gym for a low key workout.
Also, I have to AW my H... we agreed we wanted to cook at home more this month and get back to primal eating. So we looked through a couple of those cookbooks yesterday. He picked out dinners for the rest of the week that could be crock pot adapted and offered to do all the prep work. Then he rolled out of bed at 6:30 this morning to start some pot roast. He is a super good cook, I'm so excited for dinner tonight
I got up and worked out with my trainer. Getting ready to go into the office. I'm sure today will be busier than all of last week. At least it is only 3 days. Having to work 5 days next week will be challenging.
Good morning! It's the first day of getting back to a semi-normal schedule for us. Yesterday H and I went on an 8-mile hike in this park north of SF that was beautiful. It was so sunny out and we walked along the coastline to waterfall that cascades down to the beach. If I knew how to post pictures, I would AW it for sure.
Now my legs and knees are really sore! I'm off to the gym in a few hours and texted my trainer to tell him that today is an arms/abs/upper body workout. No school in session this week so no tutoring. I'm hosting a birthday party for a friend this weekend so I will probably get to work making some of the food for the party that I can make ahead. And cooking dinner tonight - trying something new so hope it isn't a disaster.
Otherwise I just plan to relax and read a book this afternoon. Have a great day!
Getting up wasn't too bad, it's the working part. I really don't understand why pregnant women have to work. And if they do have to work, why can't it be like 10-20 hrs/week on whatever schedule they want and the ability to work from home? Seriously. Oh, but still get paid.
back at work - we actually went to bed pretty early (mostly for H) so it wasn't that hard to get up, I just didn't want to I feel like all these little breaks are just teasing me and I was a serious vacation. I'm feeling a little burnt out with school right now...
we had a quiet New Years - yesterday I went shopping for a blouse to wear on interview #2 tomorrow, ended up finding a blouse, a dress, and 2 skirts - all on clearance at Macy's! Hubby surprised me by getting me a bracelet and earrings that I LOVED so now I've got a total outfit for tomorrow...excited!! 8am in downtown Seattle...I'm going to have to be out of bed early early! Baby is feeling better, fever gone but now a cough that's keeping him awake - like we need more awake time in our house *yawn* Today I'm at work, there's actually more than 3 people here (unlike last week and Monday...it was a ghost town). I don't have work though so I'm sitting here unpaid. Again. blarg.
We had aneasy day yesterday. H put M's new wagon together and we took it outfor a spin. Today I am staying in but hopefully getting some cleaning done. I need to work on organizing our addition that has become h construction work zone. I know once we start I on the second bathroom it's going to go right back into a mess but for now I want it clean.
Had mostly a nice birthday yesterday, super lazy and low-key. However, a piece of bread at the beginning of the dinner H made me went down my windpipe (I think) and all the vinegar I had dredged on irritated my throat so I stared coughing really hard, and silly H thumped me on the back, which made me start puking! I luckily missed my plate and in to the napkin as I ran in to the kitchen sink. That's a new one! Then we watched the holiday Downton Abbey special...and I am seroiusly so angry and viciously pissed at them. I need SOMEONE else who downloads them and watches them before they hit the US to wail with.
H gave m the Corso Como nude heels I really wanted and a gray bubble necklace.
I had AWFUL night sweats last night, so bad I woke up with my fingers all pruney and HURTING from how badly they're wrinkled. 2/3 of the way in to work, I started feeling hideous but it was easier to finish driving in then head home. I'm starting to feel vaguely human but still quite ill. Oh, and my coworker (and friend) came in yesterday and left her bus pass and key on our boss's desk. Um, guess she quit.

I am a SAHM mom, so I didn't go into an office. But it was harsh setting an alarm to get DS1 to school today. DS2 doesn't go back until tomorrow... but he is going to have a tough time; he is still in his pajamas!
This morning I confirmed what I suspected which is that Em has an ear infection. For the past 5 days or so she hasn't been sleeping for more than an hour at a time which has not made for a great new year's holiday. I'll be glad once the antibiotics kick in and we can get back to a normal sleep pattern. Unfortunately, this particular antibiotic is going to cause her to have 10 days of diarreah...
So anyway, getting up for work today wasn't any harder than any other day. Haha. The next few days are going to be busy for me though which means I'll reach the weekend faster!

First day back to work. Mommy was more of a mess than baby. We walked into the classroom and no teacher was there. I think I had a mini panic attack. Not a good way for our first real day to go. But apparently one teacher is on vacation (we knew this) and the other called in sick (which made me feel better cause I don't want sick adults around my baby ), and they were working out the teacher spread situation. But given they open at 7 and we were there by 8:30ish? They should've figured it out by then.
I went back at lunch to see him and nurse. This girl started crying (major stranger anxiety) and set of all the babies and so Gabe was wailing when I got t oh im and that made me burst into tears. Winner right here. But he calmed down. I calmed down. He clung to me after he nursed and fell asleep on my chest and I didn't want to put him down but I had to, so I could go back to work.
End of the day was good. He was smiley by the time we got home and is now sleeping. It's good in a way, but I miss him a lot during the day. I'm planning his 100 day party right now, nothing big, just some hamburgers grilled, potato salad, cake from Cake Envy and people seeing our baby. I need to make some decorations on Saturday to hang up. (100 days is a big deal in Korean culture).
