I was on stay-cation for the last week, and this morning I returned back to work. Everything is different when I am working. I get up at 4:50 in the morning so I have time to work out and meditate. I rouse the family from their beds & let the cats in from their adventures. I have to shower, find work appropriate clothes, apply makeup, style my hair. I have to get lunches ready and put breakfast is on the table. I commute at least 25 minutes (unless there is a 3 lane pileup on the way, and then it takes an hour). Just to be in the office by 8:00 feels like such a production, and then I turn on the computer and have the hundreds of messages waiting for me to take action. And I have to remember who I was before I took that vacation. I am still struggling, and it is noon. Crazy!
I really loved wearing the mommy hat last week. Sofie learned to balance and ride her bike. We went to the top of the world (the Spindletop Hyatt) and explored art galore. We ate gelato and skateboarded. We rode amusement park rides, baked cookies, went to a coffee shop for hot cocoa and friendship, woke up late, and watched cartoons in the morning. We had a picnic and a sleepover. I love these happy days.
The transitions between my hats are hard.
