As I have posted previously, this week marked the week of my return to the work field, and while the negatives of my return are surely numerous, the positives have been piling up, thankfully, so all is not for naught but a paycheck.
Of the positives that have I have been collecting:
Humans. Yes, they really do exist (faint)!
Voices, other than the ones sounding off in my head and from the lips of small children.
A different sense of purpose other than using a toothpick to scrape off things from under my nails that must NOT be named (or eaten, tasted, and smelled either).
Silence while the sun is still shining and my eyes are open.
Lunch that is MINE, all mine.
Dropping the kids off at daycare.
Looking forward to picking the kids up at daycare.
Missing them during the day.
Not having to cook, uh huh...yeah...uh huh. Wait...nevermind. I still have to cook. Damnuson.
and the top positive that comes with the return to work...
Going to the bathroom by myself and not having six hands knocking, three mouths wailing, six feet stomping, three persons demanding to be let in.
PIP (potty in peace)...who'da thunk.
Now, while I have a moment to my PC, I'd like to extend my thanks to Ms. Viv and Ms. Fiona who have bestowed upon me ego boosting awards...I am humbled and honored. The awards are posted in my side bar with an active link to each of these wonderful blogger's blogs. Thanks, gals.
By the way, Ms. Savant, you never muck up anything when you drop by for a visit...ever...no matter what the topic.
