1st day back to work

Whew, well my morning back to work started off a little rough. I was already anxious with having to leave Addi for this long extended period for the first time in 3 months. I was running around all last night trying to get things together that I thought I would need for today. This morning I was awaken by Josh with a "Babe, get up, it's 7:50!" OMG! What the hell happened to my alarm? I was supposed to leave by 7:30 to make it to work by 8:30. So now I'm rushing around trying to get out of the house in a decent time. I have to text my boss because this is not a good look coming off a 3 month leave. Addi wakes up crying because she usually gets to nurse off me in the morning when she awakes but now I'm not able to have that bonding time with her and she is not happy about it! I ask Josh to iron my shirt and Karin to make Addi a bottle and I wash my face and brush my teeth and do my hair. Josh gets some food in Addi and I grab the pump, my laptop, my lunch and my purse and head for the door. I wanted to spend more time with Addi saying goodbye but I just didn't have time. :-( . She had calmed down and her and Josh were able to walk me to the garage door and I did get a couple of kisses in to hold me over until I get home. I get to work but my boss is busy getting things ready for his 10am meeting so I'm stuck with nothing to do. So I decided to pump and get this one out the way. I'm getting everything out and realized I left my hands free pumping bra!!:-o What the what?? So Josh suggested I use tape to hold it up and you know what? I could have saved some money! This tape is on point right now!! LOL! Oh well, I will have a do over tomorrow, let's just hope I can get my act together by then! Oh, the joys of mommyhood!!

Noffsinger Novels

My life to me is one huge storybook! I wanted to start up my blog again but not focus so much on my weight but more about happier topics such as my new baby girl and being newly married! I wanted to have a place to detail the experiences we are having with Addi and milestones and that hopefully one day when she gets older, she can look back at this blog to capture some memories about her childhood.
I wish I would have documented my pregnancy a little more as it was a great one but I was just too lazy. I do have a paper journal that I tried to track some things with but online, I can update from virtually anywhere and anytime I get the urge. I also want to be able to post pictures in another place other than Facebook, just in case Facebook eventually goes away, my blog will still be available forever. So these first couple of blogs will be pictures and talking about what happened in my life in the past two years!! Here goes...
