No Bloggy Lately

I think this is the longest I've gone without blogging in quite a while. I just haven't had the interest in it. To be honest, this Mama is having a difficult time with going back to work. It's not the work part -- I still love everyone at the office and being there is fun. When I'm there I'm fine. It's the leaving-the-Boogie part. I was okay Monday and Wednesday but when I got home Wednesday night the Boogie was overtired and sobbing and calling for me. My Man said that it had been going on for a while and he could do nothing to console her. Now, my head knows that the exact same thing could have happened when I was home. We have rough days when we are together. No nap + a cousin to play with = an overtired Boogie. Even if I'd been home she probably would have acted the same way. But my heart hurts to think that my baby wanted me so badly and I wasn't here. I had Thursday off, and worked again Friday afternoon. I cried all day Friday. It was so hard. I didn't think it would be this hard to go back to work. I know the Boogie is fine. She is with her Mom Mom and Pop Pop, both of whom she adores, for a couple of hours. Then her Daddy is home with her. It's me. I'm the one struggling. I talked with my Mom about it, and chatted with my Pops online about it, and I felt better once I got through Friday. I know that we're still in the transition stage and that this will soon be the new normal. Anyway that's why I haven't felt like blogging lately.

But it's the beginning of a new week which I can be optimistic about. And I am VERY EXCITED about something ...

... 12 more days until my parents come! I just get all giddy inside when I think about it. We are going to have such a wonderful time!

Yesterday was a bridal shower for someone in our church, and I was asked to do the devotional. It was a good challenge for me! The shower was lovely and the bride-to-be was surprised and the food was GOOOOOD.

I got some squirt guns for the Boogie and gave them to her last night while she was in the tub. She thought they were great fun and she and I squirted each other. She goes right for the face and has pretty good aim! After a while we called for her Daddy and when he came in we soaked him. :)

Have I mentioned that my parents are coming in 12 days?

We had Ambers bridal shower yesterday also! Sherri did the devotion. It was wonderful.

They're just as excited, too! We're excited for you guys--such a treat to have the family together, and for your dad to really see everything you've got going for you in NJ. :) Btw, David & I will be praying for you, for we know it's gotta be tough for you right now leaving the Boogie. Love you!

My heart goes out to you. I know change is not always easy and it is good to see that you are taking comfort in knowing that the Boogie is cared for by your inlaws and of course, your hubby. She is in good hands.

I am so glad to hear that you are going to see your parents soon. I am leaving tomorrow to fly out to Chicago and then my sister and I are going to drive over to Western Iowa and meet up with my parents and uncle's.

Even though I am excited to go and visit my family, I am already thinking about returning home.

Well, before you know it, you'll be hugging on your mom and dad. Have a good week.
