Coffee Chat

So, let's sit down and have a cup of coffee, it's been a little while don't you think?  You can drink tea if you'd rather, I won't mind!

How are you doing today? Me? I have to admit, I'm feeling a little unglued.  I won't go into crazy details, but we're experiencing a shakeup at work and I don't quite know what it means for me yet.  I know, I have been talking for months now about how I want to have more time with Oliver, but that didn't mean that I didn't want a job at all!  As much as the full time stay at home mom gig would be awesome, we just can't make that work.  I'm sure when all is said and done everything will be fine, but it's just no fun having all this uncertainty! Considering I absolutely have to work I am in the best possible scenario for it - working close enough to my parents to be able to have lunches with Ollie and also working so close to home.  It's made the whole thing so much easier.  I was going to look at cutting back one day a week starting this fall, but with the changes coming down the line I don't quite know if that will be possible. I guess I'm just hoping for right now to keep what I have at the very least!  I think the worst part is this is all happening so fast and we're getting very little communication on anything.  Fortunately, I have been here before and it's always turned out ok.  I think this is possibly the third major reorganization I've been through in eight years!  So, we go one day at a time for now and it reinforces my no shop summer just all the more - which I'm still going strong on.  I guess if you could think some good thoughts for me though it couldn't hurt!

Besides that, I feel pretty good about the way things are going right now in my world!  Oliver is doing pretty well with his solids and I'm beyond thrilled he has not just one, but two teeth! His sleep patterns are pretty decent right now, knock on wood.  I'm excited to take him up to the lake for the very first time this weekend.  I'm hoping he'll get to experience some fun firsts like his first boat ride!  We need to find a baby life jacket before that can happen though, might have to do some last minute shopping this week!  Anyway, enough about me - what's new with you?

  1. Chatting with you is one of my favorite activities. Nice mug! I love Tinkerbell. Anyway... sorry to hear about the work-uncertainty. That's enough to make anyone anxious. As you say about past re-organizations, it'll probably be okay. So good to hear about your son's second tooth and eating progress. Important milestones! Parenting is a journey and you're on your way. Say, is that a muffin over there??

  2. Oh no, I hope everything works out and your job is still secure!

  3. Eeek, I hope thus reshuffle also works out for you. Uncertainty is horrid to live with! X

  4. Oh no! That is scary about work. I would be anxious, too. I hope everything turns out for the best. I will be sending lots of love and good vibes your way!
    Have fun at the lake this weekend! xoxo.

  5. <3 One day at a time! And just keep swimming! {{hugs}}

  6. Yikes that would make me SO anxious. Fingers crossed things work out for the best!


Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
