It’s been a few day since I blogged. I hate when that happens. I think I have secretly been depressed because I have to go back to work on MONDAY.
As in 3 days from now.
Holy mother of craziness. Has it really been 12 weeks already?
I have truly enjoyed my time as a SAHM this summer! Sure there were days when I thought I may go nutso, but overall, I have loved spending time with all my babies (including Bents – ahem).
I have learned more things about Transformers and Superheros than I ever wanted to know. And in case you were wondering, I always play Optimus Prime. P is always Megatron.
Talk about talent. Mommy aka Spiderman can cook grilled cheese in this mask. True story.
I am hoping that when Monday comes, I change my attitude and decide that I WANT to be at work and not running around the house acting like a robot that can turn in to a car. Not likely since the stock market is not playing nice these days.
I stuck to my word and only checked my work email
ONCE okay maybe twice since I have been off. If you know me, THIS IS A BIG DEAL!
But, going back to “work” that has NOT been touched in 12 weeks…DOES NOT EXCITE ME! I have had a few employee’s filling in for me when I was out so that has been helpful, but I imagine it’s going to take a FULL week to get through my email. Just the thought of it makes me want to jump off a cliff.
Gigi and Papa agreed to watch the boys. I am not sure if they were glad or disappointed that they agreed to 4 days of Rose boys. Ha!
Here are just a few texts I got from my dad on day 2 and day 3 (you may have seen this on twitter, but I wanted to document here so I would never forget these moments):
Day 2 = “I love your boys but I’m hoping you 2 got separate rooms for your trip. haha!!!” #no4thchild
Day 3 = “Ma said you missed ur boys. I said when I was in Florida I missed your boys too! Right now I miss Florida! J/K”
“This is right after he threw a shovel at me.”
I think they may never agree to watch our kids for 4 days again.
And while they were
wishing we would turn the car around and come home happily watching our kids, we were enjoying ourselves a little JCM!
Who knew I liked John Cougar Mellencamp? I had such a great time! We were front and center and I was rocking out to a little “Jack and Diane”. What’s not to love about that!
I think I like being a brunette again.
Ask me again in 2 months and I’ll probably want to be blonde.
The MIL arrives tomorrow and I am pretty excited to have some extra hands around here. I’ll take all the help I can get. If you lived here with Bents…you would too.
