I haven't written in a little while. I have suffered some pretty serious back pain, and I am trying to get that straightened out. The pain led me to contact my previous employer, where I get to work from home. I will be returning to that job. My current job has chairs that are not cushioned very well, I have to bend over to adjust my desk, if there isn't a foot stand, I get to go looking for that and then bend over and stick it under my desk, after retrieving it from an empty desk. I am blessed that I will be able to work from home again. The only time I feel decent is in a hot bath tub or when I am moving. Sitting in a reclined position is good as well. I can't do any of those things at work!
I miss my kids A LOT and ALL OF THE TIME, when I am not home. I worry about them. I know my husband is fully capable of taking care of them, but I like to be here. I feel like I have missed so much in their lives in the passed few months. My toddler says a lot more than she did when I started working. She speaks in complete sentences. Sometimes she says really funny things, even if I can't remember them right now.
One that I do remember is that she passed gas, loudly! She looked at me and said, "Daddy did that!"
I said, "Daddy did that?"
She looked around the room, and saw Hazel, our puppy. She then said, "No, puppy did that!"
I laughed and laughed. My husband and she laughed about it too.
My six year-old is reading more. I am so proud of him. He started extended day Kindergarten at the beginning of February and he seems to be picking things up quickly.
My nine year-old daughter recently discovered that she loves to run. Due to my long work hours and commute time, I never see them after school, they are asleep by the time I get home. I plan to start running again, and bringing her along.
My ten year-old son seems to have matured a ton. He is more patient with his younger siblings. He has grown taller. He is just a wonderful big brother.
My life will be back to normal in a few days. I can't wait until I am back at home, full-time! I will be back where I belong :)
