Run Interrupted

Quick update, because I’m tired and my bed is calling out to me. Probably because sometimes you drink too much wine and go to bed too late only to be woken up by a baby at 4am. Oof. And you work full time, and parent an almost 4 month old, Read more →

An Unusual Week

This week was kind of weird. And it felt long. SO long. Work felt like it took forever this week. I have no idea how or why but it was so slow. And I have one particularly difficult class of kids in the afternoon that are really starting to push my Read more →

Base Building and Monster Baby

Back to the grind. Oof. I do enjoy work and having some kind of human purpose, but I do love being home too. All though that can become very draining after a while as well. I guess right now everything boils down to life is hard and it’s all really a wash Read more →

Accepting When You Miss A Workout

I’m off work this week and had grand plans for my workouts. But you know what? Life still happens. Even though Rob is home during the day and I could work out at times that I prefer, I made a point to stick to my “schedule” and still do all Read more →

The First Week

Welp, last week didn’t quite go as planned- workout wise that is. The rest of the week was okay. Exhausting, but okay. Monday of last week was hard. I’ve been away from Ellie before but never for more than a couple of hours. Nine hours was another story. I definitely Read more →

Time Closes In

Today is Monday. It is my last Monday home. It’s my last week of maternity leave and I’m definitely feeling the squeeze. It’s so bittersweet. I am ready to see my co-workers and students, get back to some semblance of normalcy. But the idea of leaving Ellie all day is Read more →

A Little Pep In My Step

Exhaustion. It’s real. Babies are hard. Not sleeping is hard. I haven’t slept through a full night since I was like 20 weeks pregnant. I just can’t life anymore, you guys. Some days I have to choose order of importance for things to accomplish in my day. I wish napping Read more →

Oh Baby, Oh!

I haven’t been great at getting updates or posts up lately. Despite still being on maternity leave, time escapes me. Ellie turned two months old on Saturday. She turned nine weeks old on Monday. She had a doctors appointment this week and weighed in at 10lbs 2oz and is 22″ Read more →
