Hurry up but slow down

I’m hoping this doesn’t just sound like one big rant and hopefully someone out there can sympathize with me…please…anyone…let me explain.

When I wake up in the morning my first thought is always the same, I have xx amount of minutes to have a shower and then Olivia will be up.

While I do feel like this at times and I am definitely ready to put my feet up I am actually going to miss my 3 days in work. Simply put I skip into work on a Tuesday. It’s not because I cant wait to get rid of my daughter although you may think this after my last post about Olivia (read here) ­čÖé I actually enjoy my job and the people who I work with. The adult conversation can be a lifesaver at times.
