Walk with me down misery lane, won't you?
I hate the time change. It's true. While most people are rejoicing at the prospect of longer hours of daylight, I am whining about the darkness that greets me when I awaken.
It has been clearly established here that I am not a morning person. A lack of sunshine in the mornings makes this worse. Add in the fact that it's MONDAY- boo- and my first day back at work after an extended absence, and the morning is super craptastic.
I had to wake the nugget up, which is near the top of my list of reasons why being a working mother sucks. AND it breaks rule number one in our house, which, in case you forgot, is NEVER WAKE A SLEEPING BABY. I forgot to take my antibiotic, and forgot to give Gabe his Claritin. I lingered too long at drop off (you know, since I didn't actually get to see the boy before work, him being asleep and all). Lingering is never a good thing for me. AND, I discovered that my countdown of days until the end of the school year was off, and I had to add a day.
But to look on the bright side- trying to take care of a one-year-old while both parents are sick is a real treat. You should try it sometime- NOT. Work today will most certainly be easier than that. And I'll have the afternoon at home with my boy, which we will be able to enjoy outside in the 70 + degree weather.
Okay, Monday whining over. Much happier posts to follow this week, folks, I swear.
