Both Chris and I are heading back to work today after a two week holiday. I'm mustering all my positive energy (and having a second cup of coffee) to help me dive back into our work week routine.
Although the pace of life slowed during the holidays it was still very busy, as life with a crawling-everywhere-baby is. So it's hard to believe that somehow we have to fit in going to our jobs every day and pack in our evening routine into fewer hours. I was so enjoying splitting a beer with Chris around 5 PM and having a little "happy hour" while we hung out with Dash, sometimes in the grassy back yard, ahhhhhh. Now we'll be on our way to pick up Dash at 5 PM. Sad face. I was definitely feeling some Sunday blues yesterday (but not too bad).
I know that once we settle into our routine I'll feel better. And there are so many great things to look forward to this year (like my little guy turning ONE!). AND Dash has been sleeping better lately! HOORAH. I'm not ready to say that this is a new pattern and not just a fluke but here's to hoping. Only waking two or three times a night is a revelation and I'm amazed at how rested and rejuvenated I feel. Turns out waking four plus times per night for months on end can really take a toll on you. It's certainly easier to face a work week when I feel rested. So focusing on the positive and looking ahead.
