Going Back To Work Is Tiring

It would be way too easy to simply say I am too tired to write. Starting a new job and leaving the home life has really kick me in the ass. Where did all that free time go? It seems like months since I had too much time on my hands. Yes, I hear the smallest violin on the planet playing for me. Rough life I have right? I know, I should be happy. I am. All I am saying is the new routine is tiring. It did not help that my first weekend after starting we went away.

Anyways, I am feeling caught up almost. One more load of laundry to do and I am back above water. Until this blog post is over and there are probably several things I have forgotten.

Like in any family, when one person’s day changing, so does everyone else. We are back to getting up early, figuring out who will drop off and pick up the kids and of course the hardest part, putting together a week of quick dinners that don’t suck.

Balancing work and home is a challenge, but millions of us do it every day so it must not be that big a deal.

My trip to and from work is longer than before, so I have already had a few occasions of sprinting to daycare so we would not find out if they actually charge us for extra time. I bet they would, I just don’t want to find out.

Streetcars are slow. Subways are fast. I am learning the more I can cut the old cable cars out of my day, the better.

The good news is, I like the job and the weather is nice. I was about to start my third summer in a row of not having to work. This time would not have been good at all. Thank goodness something came up. And something awesome.

I know it has only been four days, but I am pretty sure I am going to be very busy and have a lot of fun. Marketing is a lot of fun when you work somewhere that has vision and not afraid to let people do what they do best.

This post is for all those who are wondering what’s up. Where are all the posts? Why no photos of food? You suck dude. Yeah I know.

The reason is simple, choosing the couch over writing has been much easier lately, but don’t worry, I always come back to my readers.

How have you all been?
