This week I have to fly to Chicago. Must we recap the last trip? Let’s not and say we did. A few differences this time though, I am flying TO Chicago and not THROUGH Chicago which makes all the difference in the world. Talk about the worst airport ever.
Also, very sad, I am not going to be bringing my milk back with me. It hurts just to say it considering the fact that I don’t have a lot of milk at home and my supply is dwindling as it. That, and Prayse seems to have these projectile vomiting episodes followed by a few hours of dry-heaving every time we give her even a little bit of formula. (Number ONE Mom right here! Or not.) However, to check luggage and pray and hope the whole time that it isn’t leaking… I just can’t handle it again. I’ll still have to try to find time and a place to pump during this all day meeting, but my saving grace is that one of the ladies that I have been working with on this project has a four month old son and I am hoping she’ll take pity Wish me luck!
So it is time to re-evaluate some priorities. Raymonn and I had this conversation last night. Work can consume me, and it is so frustrating! It is important to put 100% into what I do, especially considering the fact that I am in sales. When you don’t make the sale, you don’t get paid. It tends to be a problem. Especially when I haven’t gotten a contract signed since May of last year… scariness. I tend to get lost in work, but I need to realize that work is work and find the time to do that while I’m at the office or the babe is asleep. However I haven’t been able to keep up on the things that make me tick like writing, blogging, pictures of Prayse… I have to think about it more and find a way to work it out (can you tell I watch Project Runway?) because I told myself when I was pregnant that there was a way to have it all. There has to be a way to be successful in the corporate world while keeping your family first. I just have to find that way because staying home at this venture is not an option.
I’ll leave you with some pictures of my Princess. I was kindly reminded by my Aunt that I’m slacking in this area too. Sorry!
S’up Mama? You need me?
Now this is the best way to take a nap!
A little reminder of how far we’ve come.
And where we’re at.
Am I lovable or what??
