Jaime @ The Perpetual Page Turner comes up with the BEST post ideas, and this one is inspired by one of her favourite bloggers, Your Super Awesome Life. Reading her post, and those that have popped up from other bloggers, was a great way to get to know Jaime a little better. So, I hope that you get to know me a little better too!
If we were having coffee...I'd tell you that I'm freaking out a little about returning to work. We've almost secured daycare for Marko, with this amazing Serbian lady so that he can learn his dad's mother tongue ... but there's a part of my heart that's breaking a little about the thought of not spending my entire day with my little man.
If we were having coffee...I'd tell you that, even though I'll be sad about leaving Marko at daycare, another part of me is also a little bit excited about having something (even if it is just work) that's MINE and only mine. Where I get to be an adult for a little while, and don't have to worry about things like having enough diapers with me or what colour his poop was.
If we were having coffee...I'd be honest and tell you that the REAL reason that I'm freaking out a little about work is that I've been in to visit three times now and none of the other admin girls (the girls that I will be working with again) have said hello to me. I mean, the first time, I thought that maybe they were all having a really busy day. The second time, I thought maybe they were just uncomfortable being around a baby. But when I went in last week, by myself, to discuss my return to work with my boss, I was really, really, really hurt. And I'm trying not to worry about how it will feel working in close proximity to these girls again, but sometimes it feels like high school all over again.
If we were having coffee...I'd tell you that, even though I've lost most of the weight that I put on during my pregnancy, I haven't lost all of it, and that wreaks havoc with my self esteem sometimes.
If we were having coffee...I'd bring it back to the bookish world for a minute, and ask you if you've read anything sensational lately? Working on my end of the year bookish survey has made me realize that, even though I've read some great books this past year, I haven't been totally and utterly blown away by a book in a long time.
If we were having coffee...I'd ask you how YOU'RE doing because, even though I just blabbed a lot about about myself here, most of the time I'm the one that does the listening on a coffee date. So how ARE you doing? Please let me know in the comments below ... and if you've joined in the fun with Jaime's post idea, please leave me a link and I'll stop by and have coffee with you!
