A long overdue update

I suck. I have been horrible at updating the past few weeks. A lot has happened, which is my excuse for being a slacker.
First we had what I'll call "Barfy Christmas 2011" in which my husband got the flu - the same flu our son had 10 days prior. Awesome right? Nothing says Merry Christmas like the flu on Christmas Eve. Luckily I didn't get it (a small miracle) and was able to take care of the kiddo while his dad was sick.
Just after that I started my new job. I won't lie: The people are awesomely nice, the building is amazingly huge and I've had an enormous amount of anxiety to go with the change of returning to work after all this time.
Then we had New Years which was, for the most part, uneventful. Jason and I watched a movie and hit the sack well before midnight. Or at least we tried to - the firework BOMBS were going off until 1am. We had fireworks in our driveway on New Years Day. Not so cool. If you are going to partake in drunk fireworking at least pick up the mess your hobby leaves in other peoples driveways. But hey, that's just me.
So now we are in the first week of the New Year and I'm in a totally new phase and stage of life and recovery. I find that with the highs and lows of anxiety comes some depressive like symptoms. I'm working on managing that so it doesn't affect home or work life more than absolutely needed (the part that can't be helped or stopped).
The way upside to this new job and the stress/anxiety it has created in me? The best part of my day is picking my kid up from daycare, feeding him dinner, giving him a bath and putting him to bed. I never thought I'd say that would be the "high" of my day.
So there you go. Short and sweet but an update non the less. I hope you are all well and wish you all a very Happy New Year. Let 2012 suck WAY LESS than 2011 :)

  1. Our new years was pretty lame too. We went to dinner, tucked the baby in and hit the bed before 10. I wish you the best at your new job. New experiences can bring on lots of anxiety, but I hope this job brings you a new kind of peace.
