Today has been one of those days. At the end of my work day I discovered I was wearing two different shoes. I had back to back conference calls. I did not take a lunch. My child will not go to sleep.
I am so tired!
This is a day that I have gone through a huge swing of emotion. My job, since I’ve gotten promoted, has been relatively quiet because I had no idea what I was doing and just recently I was assigned a project that has made me super busy and super valuable. I love when I can spend a whole day working on building something that matters! After one of my many calls today, I stopped to think about how far I could advance my career IF I was okay working around the clock and dedicating myself to my work. I could go really far. I think when I am determined to do something, I end up being pretty darn good at it. My career is one of those things. Sometimes I am jealous of people who can continue to advance because they can answer work emails into the night and travel.
Then I get home and Lydia will not sleep. She is all out of sorts because she is popping another tooth. NINE teeth and she is not even ten months yet! Can you believe that?! Poor girl is just miserable and I can’t say I blame her!! Although she is making her momma wonder, how can I keep up? Tomorrow I took a day off to go to the local fair with her, my mom, and my sister who is in town with my nephews and niece. I am so excited to go hang out with my family and yet in the back of my mind I keep thinking of all the calls I am missing and emails that will need my attention.
Being a working momma is hard but tomorrow I am going to put aside work and spend the day with my beautiful little girl. I hope tomorrow she is in a better mood and I get some sleep tonight!!
