Worth It

Friday, August 19, 2011

Sometimes, being a working mom makes me very tired.  The days can be a blur.  Get up, breakfast, commute, daycare, to work, deadlines, issues, stay hydrated, daycare, commute, 107 degree heat wave, feed dogs, dinner for Jack, bath time, bed time, dinner for grown ups, clean up, laundry, bed.

Oh, wait. I forgot to mention volunteering, yoga, half-marathon training, Junior League, and writing two blogs.

Phew.  Oh, wait.  I forgot to mention spending time with Durel, my parents, my friends, taking naps, drinking wine, or doing other fun things.  

It's a good thing I'm a Type A personality.  It's a good thing I'm a pro-style list maker.  It's a good thing I like having a lot to do.  Because it's the understatement of the week to say that there's a lot to do.

You know what?  It is totally, one hundred bazillion percent worth it.

You know why?  Because I get to spend it with him.


Here's to lists.  And wine.

  1. This is a great picture of Jack. I heard that he moved up to the big classroom today. You will have to blog about his adventures.
