Happy Friday


A new Roosevelt model for me – at least for now. Week one (day 3) of working motherhood and whoa – it’s going to be hard. My colleagues have been wonderful, I came back to some of my favorite pictures of Lucas posted around the cubicle and my new office space is ideal; however, it is work and I’m gone most of the day. I leave before 8 am and get home just before 6 pm. Lucas is ready to eat as soon as I walk in the door and ready for bed around 830. If I go to the bathroom and eat, I’m looking at 2 hours a day with my boy. I knew it would be the case but it’s still hard.

Honestly, this is going to be the easy part. Danny is home for the month so I don’t have to do anything more than feed Lucas in the morning. There is no daycare pick-up in the evening and dinner prep isn’t stressful. We also aren’t competing for Lucas time. When that changes, I may have a mini-breakdown.

The reality is life has changed. This is a new stage and a balancing act. My priority is Lucas, Danny and our little family; therefore, as hard as it will be for my ego, the ER/FDR Roosevelt Standard of living is on pause. I’m going to embrace a hermit lifestyle for a bit to adjust and enjoy.

What better way to start than a three day weekend?! Bonus is a holiday weekend with no real plans. Dinner with Mr. B Monday is the only thing on the calendar and that’s always on the calendar. We’ll probably see some folks but really I may stay in my PJs cuddled up with my guys and some Law & Order.

P.S. My work project if you’re interested
