What's in a week?

Le sigh. I am distraught. Hand to the forehead, gut-wrenching sobs kind of distraught because I have to return to work in one week. One week. I have no idea how I'm going to leave my baby girl everyday, even in the capable hands of our sitter. Yes, I have done this before, so I should feel more confident. Thing is, Elliott stayed with Chris for a month after I went back to work and then he stayed with Glammy for June and July. That made him 6 months old when I had to leave him with someone other than family. How, how, how am I going to leave that tiny bit of humanity and love 5 days a week? I'm not sure, but alas, my plan of giving up cable just isn't going to make up enough difference for me to stay home.

I'm sorry. That would be tough.

Well. It totally sucks. Then you get the first day down and it isn't so bad. It helps that you like your job and get some really great stories out of it. You will make it. Promises.

Glammy wishes she could stay home with her also, but alas, I have to pay that cable bill also. It will get better, just going to be hard the first couple of days.
