returning to the office

Yesterday was my first day back in the office (I work from home most of the week, but am in the office at least 1 day a week).  The morning was a little hectic – I got up at 5am, showered, then fed Leo and packed up my stuff to go.  I was out the door by 6:05am!  Leaving home was a little rough – Leo was snuggly and cute and smiley and I really didn’t want to get in the car and leave him for the day!  I cried a little on my way out of town.  Once I got to the office though, things were better.  It was really good to see my coworkers (I work with a hilarious and awesome bunch).  I had gotten a new cubicle while I was gone and it has a window view!  So I spent a lot of the morning catching up with others and setting up my desk.  Best part of the morning?  A surprise brownie and card left by my friends that I stay with when I’m down for work overnight!

It was really sweet and totally made my day.

The rest of the work day went really quick – a fun lunch all together, jumping into work, taking breaks to pump, and leaving by 4pm so I could make it home in time to vote.  I swung by the house on my way into town and grabbed Dave and Leo and we were at the polling place with 7 minutes to spare!  Afterwards we picked up a pizza and came home to chill.  All in all: not a first day back in the office.  I thought it would be torture being away from Leo for 12 hours (and some days it probably will be), but seeing friends made it really manageable and even fun!  Still, I’m glad to have my little buddy home to snuggle with me today!

Do you work in an office?  Do you get along with your coworkers?

  1. YAY! Glad all went well. For me it was easier to travel when Miles was littler and got harder the more aware he was. However, I was done BFing by 6 months. That would be hard. Good job mom!

  2. Totally agree with Kimi. I leave for work really early in the morning just so I can get out the door before the kids get up and are sad that I am gone.

  3. I am so happy your first day back ended up so nicely! That brownie looks GOOD!

    I like one of my coworkers. Not so much the others 😦
