The new year begins with optimism and all good thoughts. I had a lovely, and extremely busy break. Two weeks of working very hard and ensuring kids were fed, bathed and happy. Then one week of busy sight-seeing with our little family of three.
This weekend was lovely. It was busy busy busy on Saturday morning….getting cars serviced, library stops, shopping and all the admin of our lives. But it was fine. We were together.
Hubby and I had our meeting with the educational psychologist this morning. The relief I feel is so good. She said to us that she has not spoken to the teacher as she prefers to work without preconceived notions. (I feel better). She asked us questions about Honeybear and the type of child that he is and all the little things to get to know our little boy from our point of view.
It has been a while…but that seems the norm these days. I have been in the new job almost a whole month and I think it is going fine. The office is way way way more relaxed than the previous office. I have had two deadlines in the time I have been there, and even with work under pressure, it was still relaxed. Deadlines must be met, but neither are they the end of the world.
I still gets loads of calls from the old office and after the end of March, I am going to have to cut them loose. My friends from there are waiting for a dinner date so we can all catch up.
The new office also gave us all Monday off…had nothing to do with leave. I think getting into the relationships may take a while, because everyone in that office has worked there forever. I think that is a good sign, that people stay there. The old office had a very high staff turnover.
Hubby has had some compliments about the way he is managing his new position. I think it makes him feel relaxed knowing that he is making a difficult position work.
Honeybear and I spent some good quality time together these last four days. I think we both needed it. I have been working so hard on my private work. I try to work only when he is asleep, but it is not always possible. I also need to spend time with Hubby.
Things with Hubby is another post. I love him so much, and he is one of the most caring souls, and I am so lucky to have him choose me.
