picture taken by my husband - Boston is a pretty little city
Okay, I think we're all starting to settle into this new routine. I was overwhelmed by the stress of getting a sitter for the boys for after school, and that really prevented me from fully embracing everything else. Long story short, I hired a wonderful young woman this weekend - the boys love her already, and she has enabled me to relax. I can hear my sister now, saying "See? I told you things would work out the way they're supposed to." She's absolutely right, but damn it sure can be stressful along the way. Anyway...
I had a good day yesterday. I woke up early and got a workout in before putting on my favorite dress and leaving for work. My new client is in a suburb, so I don't have to drive all the way into the city. No train ride, but a relatively easy commute that allows me to turn the music up and sing nice and loud. My client partner is great, and everybody I've met is very nice and easy to work with. I got a decent amount of work done. I went out to lunch with the new person on my team. I left early and went home to receive the best hugs ever from the cutest boys ever. Aaron told me he loves piano again and practiced his new song for me. Nathan gave me an extra hug just because he wasn't sure I got one in the morning. I made a homemade but very easy, one-pot dinner that the boys ate and enjoyed. I ended the day with a mug of ice cream and Jon Stewart. Oh, and did I mention that it was a warm and gorgeous day?
They won't all be that easy, but they won't all be hard either. It's a good reminder to have.
