This past week was super hectic and all my good intentions to update this blog went right out the window. September has been insanely packed from the get-go, actually and I rather hope that it calms down a bit.
My co-worker who was out for a broken leg is back and we are now really getting underway. I actually have a schedule for this week and I am excited to throw myself into it all. I know that I will be very busy in the weeks and months to come and I am pretty happy about that. Leaving Lilly breaks my heart almost every morning as she clings to my leg and tells me she wants to go to work with me. I know that she is fine and playing with Vin within minutes of my departure, but the crying just adds to my sadness at being away from her all day.
I really love working and feeling as if I am using my graduate degree for which I worked very hard. I know that I need to work, regardless of how I feel about it. I am very fortunate to be home so early in the day, as compared to my friends who take the train into NYC and get home by 7pm.
I just miss her so and I want to be the one to teach her and play with her and....I could go on and on. Vinnie is doing well with her while I am gone and she goes to her daycare 2 days a week now. She is having a bit of a hard time adjusting to that, but I knew that was likely. She has friends in school and she learns so much from them. She comes home singing new songs and is counting in English and Spanish and recognizing many letters. She loves to pretend play and it has become more complicated and involved. She is starting to really recognize simple feelings, both in herself and others. Lilly is just growing up before my very eyes!
Regarding my exercise and eating habits....it all went out the window, but is about to walk right back in that door. I want to go to they gym, I was just insanely tired the first few weeks of school, and then did not feel too hot this past week with the blasted allergies. This week I start again. Back to the gym and back to healthier eating. I promise!
