Coming home...

Many months worth of thoughts swirling around in my head. Many hours driven, alone, in the car. Hours to think, ponder, reflect. So much I cant even straighten out enough to know where to begin. 

Anyone who knows me, knows that I have been MIA because I accepted a full time job back in September. Time wise, something (or a few things for that matter) had to give for a while. I accepted the position knowing that I would have the option of going home if my performance was where it needed to be and, of course, after I spent the required amount of time in the office. I was estimating August as the estimated time frame.


As of last Tuesday, It was official, I am a work at home mom. I no longer trek 45 min to an hour across town to work. I simply roll out of bed, grab a cup of coffee and walk into my temporary office. 
Yeah, I wish it were that easy. Reality is...  I still have to take Justin to camp; so I do have to brush my hair... and my teeth. Since we assumed I would be gone all summer, we signed him up for Karate camp.

He.Loves.It! Really loves it!  

I give him the option of staying home any day, but he's not having any part of that. In the first week they went to the movies, the park, Chuck E Cheese and Ice skating. I thought I was going to have a heart attack letting him go Ice skating without me, but I survived the whole ordeal... and so did he.
Somewhere in there they squeeze in tae kwon do along with what has to be a whole lot of physical, blood dropping, activity; because I have done nothing but battle constant lows all week. Even long after he's home and I feed him pasta. I have raised I:C ratios and implemented a 50% basal decrease while he's there. For serious... were pounding the Juicy Juice like you wouldn't believe. and he's still hitting the 50's and 60's all day and through the night. Craziness! Good thing I get to sleep that extra hour now.

Its all worth it, I guess, if he's loving it.

For me, being home is bitter-sweet. It has many perks. MANY! But I miss the chit chat with co workers, I miss stripper shoe talk. Always a compromise with any decision we make.

I hope to get back to blogging now that I'm home. That has been my intention all along. I have a lot to say if I can sort out all this mess in my head. Maybe a Five question Friday, or an Out of the Mouth of yours truly will be in the near future too.

WOOT! Looking forward to more posting from you Lora. So glad that you are "home" working earlier than you thought.

Justin's blood sugars sound like Joe's...60% reduction yesterday...chewing on Starbursts like his mama chews gum while we were at the beach. xo

Giving our kids freedom is the hardest thing we're asked to do...but when they come back alive it is so rewarding! Lol! For us and for them! Hooray for working from home!

Oh, how I've missed the stripper shoe talk, too! ;)
So glad you are able to transition to working at home...even if the kids aren't there right now!!
Bean would have been the same way...insisting on going even if she didn't have to.
