On the Road Again…

Posted on | July 28, 2010 | 3 Comments

Well, I’m back on the road. 
Husband, J and I are heading up to Atlanta so I can spend the next few days working out of our Atlanta office and getting to know the rest of the attorneys. I should be more excited, but really? I just want to go to Atlanta and get this over with. 
I’m tired, y’all. This supermom thing is hard work. My kid ONLY wants me. All the time. And I’m working long hours and trying move and trying to get all the little things taken care of… like renters insurance and changing addresses on credit cards. And oh yeah, day care. And unpacking. 
My cape is looking a bit ragged these days. 
And I’m so scared that I’m going to take all this stress out on J and end up yelling at him or forgetting to do something important for him… like change his diaper or feed him or something. Ultimately, we’re doing all of this for him but at this moment? It feels like he’s the one getting the shaft.
We’ve got him locked into a daycare but he has to spend the first month in a class of kids who are all older. They’re all walking. They’re like half a year older than him! It scares me, but scares me less than putting him in another facility then switching him in one month. At least this is the same place, or at least that’s what I’m telling myself.
But there are good things going on, too. Like the fact that I stumbled onto the greatest little cookie bakery just a few short blocks from my office… and I’m totally shipping some yummy cookies up to my dear friend who has graciously forgiven me for bailing on her baby shower… that I was involved in throwing. (Bad friend. Party of me.) These cookies are to. die. for. I bought 12 today and have eaten half of them. I’m going to be O Beast when I’m through with this mess! (Sidebar: I thought “Obese” was actually people saying “A Beast” when I was younger. As in “Oh. Poor thing. She’s a BEAST” rather than “Oh. Poor thing. She’s obese.”) 
In the meantime, don’t go forgetting about how you can enter to win some goodies just by sparing $5 for the Grady Family. Just because I love you guys, I’m going to throw in some cookies from this amazing cookie place. A taste of Savannah for you all for the low, low price of $5 to help bring a smile to a mom’s face.

    No capes for superheroes. Didn't you watch The Incredibles!

    No cape certainly makes being Supermom easier too. Promise. People think you're just one of us Regulars.

    Now I want a cookie.

    It took C a month to adjust to our new house after we moved and that was without changing daycare or cities or anything. Just give J a little slack and have some wine. Or beer. Or Frodka (see stark raving mad mommy's blog for a definition of Frodka). It'll be ok. Not today. But someday.
