First Day Back

Well this is it, guess there's no turning back; it's just after 8 am and I am officially off of maternity leave. I decided to come back on the holiday because a.) I get paid OT and girlfriend is broker than a joke and needs some cash like NOW! and b.) Xander gets to spend his first day away from me at home with Daddy. Tomorrow will be his first day of daycare and Lord knows how he's going to behave, I mean he gives his father a hard time.

The day started like any other work day, except I actually got up on time. LOL! If you know like I know, when you hate your job, snoozing for 20 minutes is all too easy to do! Anywhoo...I fed Xander and was sad that I had to cut our cuddle time, but ya know... grabbed my work bag, stashed 2 scrap magazines in it because even when I'm at work, visions of layouts dance in my head, stocked my lunch bag with breakfast and lunch then printed some pictures of the boys. Can't return to work without updated pics because I would hear about it all day long! Anyway, I'm all dressed and ready to go, grab my stuff and head out the door, I get to the first traffic light and apply my MAC lipglass like always, hop on the Garden State Parkway in a good mood because I'm actually early and because it's a holiday so I won't have to deal with the mounds of workday traffic and stupid drivers. The radio is tuned into 106.7, yes I like Lite FM stations, thinking about blogging my first day back and then I yell "OH F*CK ME"!!!! I realized that I had forgotten my breast pump! Man! What the heck am I going to do? I can go 4 hours, 6 might be reeeeallly stretching it, but there's no way I can go 8 hours without pumping. The good thing is, and I know this may be TMI, that I don't leak. So at least I don't have to worry about a huge soppy soaking wet mess on the front of my stark white cotton shirt...the bad thing is I'm going to be ready to explode, literally- I can already imagine the stabbing back pains from the lack of release...OUCH!

Today is probably going to be a light day, especially for me because all I have to do is read and sign off on a ton of SOPs and run a competency test (to make sure I remember how to do my job after 5 months) so maybe I can cut out early, if not then I might have to bust a move to the local Walmart. UGH!
