How sad is it that in one short month I’ll be back at work? I really wish we could have afforded for me to take off the full 12-week maternity period. Or even eight weeks…
In other news, how sad is it that my mom left today? My house has never been as orderly and clean as it has been since her arrival on August 17! It’s all downhill from here. Plus, I know CootieGirl really enjoyed spending time with her – she got lots of attention and kisses.
However, the good news is that I’ve lost half the weight I gained during the pregnancy. Only 25 pounds to go and I’ll be at pre-pregnancy weight and can begin my running program again with a goal of losing another 45 pounds by next April and running a half marathon next August. Can it be done? Sure…in due time.
Other good news? The fact that when CootieGirl and CootieBoy take naps at the same time I actually have time to do stuff like take a shower and surf the net. Something to look forward to each day!
The RNC convention starts this morning in NYC – I’m so glad I’m not commuting into the city this week. Mare-Bear told me this morning that her commute from Queens was HORRENDOUS and she ended up getting to work about an hour late. Yikes!
