There were a lot of people that told me before I had Maddox, I'd never want to return to work and I'd love to just be at home with him and do the "mom thing" With that being said let me just list a couple of things I've found being a "stay at home mom" the past 5 weeks.
Dr. Oz scares the crap out of me, just do yourself the favor and don't watch him. I found myself clocking the distance I live from the freeway the other day, because apparently your chances are higher to conceive an autistic child if you live within 1/4 mile of the freeway!! You'll start checking your moles or wonder if you have regular bowl movements, really?! Ok, Mr. Oz you're not welcome in my home anymore because you're freaking me out!!
I'm board out of my mind with this crappy weather!! I thought it was a heatwave last week and went on a walk, I think it was like 53 degrees.
I'm so used to my old routine, wake up, get ready, go to work, go work out after work blah blah blah. I've been a prisoner in my own body with this c-section. I've been limited to just walking for my workout, no thank you. I'm either balls to the wall or nothing at all. When I was pregnant I couldn't run or lift weights because my heart rate would become too high for my Dr.'s liking. I'm DYING to go on a good run and do some squats. Travis bought me an elliptical so I could workout while the babe is taking his nap. Well, that too is on hiadus until my body is fully healed! So that just adds to the long list if why I'm bored out of my mind.
I'm supposed to return to work in May, working every Tuesday and Wednesday while my in laws watch Maddox. I talked to the Dr I work for and told him I'm going crazy, I don't know how people do this, he'll be seeing me sooner than later. I went into work last week, with Maddox in tow, to finish our retention photos in the back office clocking out to nurse him when needed. Sooo nice to get out and actually feel like I'm doing something. Lately my other big outting is going to Sonic's happy hour. Whoa don't get crazy!!
