Anybody Else Want to Contribute to Ruining My Day?

I have a policy that I will not mix work things with Alexis things. I find that it is good practice to have to leave the job at the job, so I try to do just that. Plus, talking about your job on a blog is not the brightest idea. Try as I might, I cannot convince myself that it would be a good time to abandon that theory, so I'll just say this, I am now a stay-at-home Mom. And it wasn't pretty. In the past few hours, I have found that my former co-workers and customers are some of the most incredible people ever. Their reactions have been humbling, touching, and at times, very amusing. So thank you to each and every one of you, and you all know how it really was. I appreciate that more than you can possibly know.

(Oh, and for the rest of you, there is TOTALLY a major story there. You might be able to pry it out of my via email.)

To make matters even more fun for me, Alexis has spent her day in a foul mood. This after discovering that I meant business when I told her she was on her own after the first time she woke up last night. It was nice of her to sleep through 3:30 for a change, but I would have really preferred to not be awake at 11:00 and again at 2:00. A half hour worth of crying fits tends to wear one out, so she was wiped out all day long. And now, she's in bed, per her request. She decided she was done being grumpy and should just go to bed 30 minutes early. I would say good for her, but I think that means I will not be sleeping in tomorrow morning. Darn it.

Oh well, I'm going to go wallow in self-pity and maybe go to bed early myself. Oh, and kick myself for not aggressively pursuing some opportunities that were in front of me a few weeks ago. I can be such an idiot sometimes. *kick* *kick*

    A stay home mom? You are not working anymore or you work home office?

    By the way I forget to put my name, it's Mel

  3. I'm sorry, sounds like things aren't going well to say the least. But getting to spend all day with that cute little princess has got to make up for a lot.

  4. Mel--No work, all play. Unless you count cooking, cleaning, and completing any one of the million unfinished projects around the house. If you do, then I'll be doing more work than ever. Just without pay.

    Rocking Pony--You have a point. There are worse things than spending your day with a cute one-year old. For example, spending your day with a cute two-year old.
