First Day “Back” at Work

Maternity leave is over. <sad trombone> Today I started back to work (yes, on a Friday), after 12 wonderful (paid!)¬†weeks getting to know the new addition to our family. And while I still didn’t feel fully ready to go back to work – what Mommy does, really? – I wasn’t quite as distraught this time […]

Busy Season and Work Craziness

It’s officially been over 2 months since I last posted. And believe it or not, I still have summer fun posts to write up. But for now, a quick catch up. We’ve officially made it through busy season at work. And as if busy season isn’t bad enough, corporate dropped a pretty big bomb on […]

Look Happy

Y’all have probably already seen it on my Facebook page from this morning, but Sam certainly has the right perspective today. I was putting on makeup this morning – something that rarely happens on a weekday, sadly – and he asked what I was doing. I told him I was putting on my makeup. Sam: […]

Valentine’s Box, The First Year

Remember the Valentine’s Day goodies I posted about last week? I did finish the goodie bags during the week, but that Valentine box? Yeah….it didn’t get started until today. Thankfully, it also got finished today…and then partially destroyed (there is a toddler in the house, and he was helping–you do the math)…and then refinished (sort […]

Valentine’s Day Goodies

Sam’s class is having an actual Valentine’s Day party this year, complete with exchanging valentines and decorated boxes and everything. Clearly, a 2.5 year old can’t do a TON to help make his valentine box, but I wanted him to feel like he could help. So today, after basketball games, Sam, Granny, and I went […]

So Many Things

Clearly I’m back to my once-a-week-at-best postings. I know my 4 readers are just heartbroken to not be hearing from me more. My excuse this week, at least, was having a sick kid from Monday morning through the wee hours of Wednesday morning. As for the days/weeks prior to that? Yeah…I got nothin’ (that’s my […]

No, I’m not talking about the kind I had back in my high school and college dance team days. I’m talking about work flexibility. Since I started with my company over a decade ago (yes, really), we’ve had a pretty flexible work schedule. The general understanding is that an employee works out a schedule with […]

Swim Lessons

Sam took Mommy and Me swim lessons the last two weeks (as in, last week and the week before. Yes, as usual, I’m lagging in posting). Since lessons were at our neighborhood pools, I decided to try to work in some exercise for me, too (something I struggle to do lately), by pushing Sam up […]

Opening Day 11

Yep, folks, it’s baseball season (well, MLB, anyway, little league has been going for a few weeks now). The Rangers had Opening Day on Good Friday, April 6, 2012. And for the 11th year in a row, I got to attend with my department. It’s one of the many perks I get at my job-plus, […]

Easter Egg Hunt!

For those of you (Sigmas) who hear that phrase and want to run screaming from the room, I apologize. Allow me to attempt to replace those horrific images with these adorable ones. Sam’s school had an Easter egg hunt and Easter parade today. I’ll leave you with some cute videos. Heading out to hunt Easter […]
