Yesterday I had a huge Mummy fail. I still feel so bad about it. I know we all do it and I will do it again….
This week is my first official week at the New job. So far it is extremely busy and I am trying to make a good impression. Besides showing that I have the know how they require, I am trying to avoid the need for over time work. With Honeybear it is just not possible.
Hubby and I have huge plans to do nothing this weekend. It has been so busy with all the party planning and me moving jobs, it feels like we have not had a moment to ourselves just to be with each other as a family. Family time is so important to make sure everyone is well and connecting. I notice we all tend to fight with each other when we have disconnected by not making time for each other.
I have also gone back to cooking once a week on the weekend. Not having cooking waiting is a huge time saver in the afternoons. I know freezer food is not everyone’s cup of tea but at least it ensures dedicated family time and a home cooked meal waiting for us. It also means less dishes to wash every evening.
Hubby is definitely moving to work close to us with slightly shorter shifts. It is going to be nice to see more of him. As I write this blog I am still waiting for him to get home. He is having a visit with his boss. I am trying not to be upset that we are not seeing him tonight when it was supposed to be family time. I know sometimes you have to socialise with the boss in the best interests of your work but it is not nice for the family waiting for you at home. Oh well, life happens and we will have a whole weekend to ourselves.
I think I am just waffling on now. Take care.
