Of course I refer to myself there. Oddly I only seem able to use the computer when I am in the office. I only rarely use it at home and when I do its not to blog or do much of anything outside of checking email. I barely even send emails from home. As a result, after spending 11 at weeks at home on maternity leave with ample time to blog and do lots of stuff on the internet I have done none of that. I can’t even say that I really even followed the news. So, what have I done?
I have followed; all Closer reruns on TNT; the end of season episodes of Bones; The Young & The Restless; Kathy Lee and Hoda; Rizzoli & Isles; and have gotten hooked on Supernatural reruns and the new season of Franklin and Bash. The Mark-Paul Gossalear and Breckin Meyer combo is charming and a real treasure rivaled only by that of Shaun and Gus from Psych.
I also managed to read 10 books: All 3 Shades of Grey, Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter, Pride & Prejudice and Zombies, The Help, Cutting for Stone, The Drop, Port Mortuary, Flash and Bones, The Abbey, and Red Mist. I however, lost my ability to do simple math–that is really 12 books. I ran, I did Pilates, I had facials, I lost 25 pounds (but have 20 more to go), I took naps with the baby. Napping with baby being the highlight of my time home.
On the car front- we went with the Infiniti JX. Nice third row, big but not ridiculous and nicely outfitted. Now I have joined the legions in Texas with a white car with air conditioned front seats. It kind of always feels like you are sitting on ice cubes. Definitely takes some getting used to.
Am I glad to be back at work? yes, I am. Admittedly, I’m not the best at being at home. The longer I’m there the less I want to do on a daily basis until the point comes where I am spending most of the day in bed in pajamas and eating cheese and olives and drinking espresso all day. It’s a truly sad sight. My ability to hold a conversation slowly dribbles out my ear and I can’t remember anything 2 minutes after thinking it or being told. Perhaps now that I am back I may start thinking about renaming my blog too. My big move was just about 2 years ago-as soon as I think of something catchy I’ll do it. My biggest concern right now is finding work clothes that fit.
That pretty much covers everything from the past 3 months. Baby is awesome, the sibs are good and I am back to balancing work and frivolous internet pursuits. Ahhh .. .
