Sharing my post from my other blog for those of you that don’t follow that one. Hope you all have a very Happy Mother’s Day tomorrow!!!!
This was my first week back to work. It went pretty well and by the second day I was getting back in the swing of things. Alberto, the guy that had the job before me stayed with me all week to jog my memory. It was a fun week and since I have worked with him before, it was nice to catch up on things. I am very sore but I know that in the weeks to come it will get better. I wore my pedometer one night and just cleaning and walking to different buildings it was a little over 6 miles! (lost 2lbs this week!) No wonder I was sore!
After staying at home for almost 4 years and not doing much besides walking Maddie to school and our own small walks it did take its toll on me but it will get better! It was good to see everyone and I have really missed the guys in maintenance that I work with. Some are new but most are still there from the last time I worked there and its like I never left!
I was really happy with how well Maddie did with all of this too, she still says she wishes I would have told them no but there have been very few tears. She is really enjoying eating lunch at school now and is making some new friends in SAC. (school age care) She has also been doing pretty well at home with only daddy, the first few days she was doing really well and towards the end of the week she was back to being her old strong-willed self so I think all is well.
Today was nice spending time with both Shane and Maddie and I will really enjoy tomorrow too. Going back to work wasn’t as bad as I thought but I know this is only the first week and in time I will really start to miss them but I know in the long run this will be good for us. It is nice to have some other adult conversation too!!!
Friday she had her field trip and she went to lunch all by herself so no pictures from that. Next week she said she wants me to stay home and she will go to lunch with her classmates and then on to SAC.
Here’s some pictures from the past week. Monday’s pics are here.
Tuesday was hamburgers!
Wacky Wednesday- for teacher appreciation week they were doing different things to show their teachers how much they loved them…

Thursday they had sloppy joes
So proud of her! She got an Outstanding Student award for knowing all the letters in the alphabet and their sounds!!
This was what I walked at work Thursday night!
This was Friday, the day of her field trip
The flower pot she had painted for me.
They planted seeds for Mom’s for Mother’s Day
One of the baby frogs out where I work. They are everywhere out there this time of year! I missed them! lol Had to save some and some toads from Alberto because they freak him out. Silly little man…
And today, at On The Border, where they took me for my early Mother’s Day dinner!
