This week is really the first week that I've been totally SLAMMED at work since I went back. I was online last night until 10 - but members of my team were up until 3 AM. And wow - it's different. My work is usually like this, waxes and wanes with the different software releases we do - but I'm out of practice! And, in testament to how awesome Aaron is, he noticed. And wrote me a nice note yesterday while I was at work telling me that he knows things are stressful for me at work - and to remember that he is here for me and he is capable of doing stuff too.
Because I've been the person that goes to the grocery store on the way home because I'm always out on time. And I make dinner, because I'm home first. And I push through laundry when I'm working from home because I have the time. And now, I'm back to being a 'normal' working mom - loads of things to do, and not enough time to do it. But thankfully - I've got an awesome partner and we'll get it all sorted out.
Today is cleaning lady day - which is the time every two weeks that I pick up, straighten up and organize more than other days - because the neater everything is, the cleaner they get things. And oh... how I love a clean house (especially when I'm not the one cleaning it. Plus, my mother in law is visiting and I get a little edgy about things when she is here. I'm sure you all know what that is like, lol.
