Back to Work

I just completed my first week back from vacation, and as much as I love my job, I love vacation, too. It was really hard for me to get back into the work routine because none of my kiddos are around AND because Travis and Adaline are still at home.
I spent the entire week in the office doing research and reviewing cases for the upcoming year. It's so hard for me to sit at a desk all day everyday. During the school year, I'm all over the place: at one of my school sites, doing assessments, on the floor with the kids, joining in at recess or circle time...It's not until after school hours that I sit down at a desk to write my reports, check my email, create trainings or collaborate with my co-workers. So, as you can understand, I get antsy when I sit in front of my computer or my files for 40 hours. Ugh. My muscles even hurt from being in the same position allllllll day.
Travis tried to help lighten up my first week back by bringing in Adaline- and it worked! They only stayed a few minutes, but just holding Adaline and taking her around to say hi to my current office-mates put a smile on my face.
Speaking of Miss Adaline, she had quite the busy day! She went out to Travis's school for a quick informal meeting with his department, came out to visit me, went to the bike store, the post office, the grocery store AND played with Grandpa Walsh! What a day! Travis said Grandpa and Adaline had a great visit; Grandpa came in and said hi to her, but then spent some time talking to Travis so Adaline could warm up to him and warm up to him she did! After a couple of minutes, she was talking and playing and generally showing off for Grandpa. How exciting :) Wish I could have been there to see it!
Next week will be better, now that I'm back in the work-mode, I'm ready to go. I have quite a few upcoming projects to do and I'm ready to do them! Until then, I'm going to enjoy my weekend with my family...
Happy weekend to you!
