The End and The Beginning

Today was the last day of my maternity leave.  Technically, I guess Sunday is the last day of my leave, but weekends don't count to me...I'd have the weekend off anyway.  I handled it better than I thought I would.  Though, I'll admit to quite a few "it'll be ok" and "remember this" moments throughout the day. 

Part of me, though I don't want to admit this, might even be a tiny bit excited to go back to work.  I am afraid what I'm going to find on my first day back!  I mean, I can't even imagine what 3 months of piled up work looks like...or how I'm going to get up to speed after someone else took care of a few of my projects for 3 months.

Three months...so long and yet so fast.  Today also marked the beginning of Harris' third month with us.  Three months ago today, we were rushing to the hospital for an emergency c-section.  Three months ago today, I held (and saw, though not necessarily well) my perfect baby boy for the first time.

I find it interesting, or perhaps ironic, that one end marks another beginning.  I'm reminded of my high school class song..."Every new beginning is another new beginning's end."  Couldn't be any more accurate.  And, I just have to keep looking at it that way.  Today wasn't really the end of anything, it was just the beginning of something new, and not necessarily worse, for all of us.  One day at a time is my mantra right now...one new beginning at a time...

How funny, rumor has it- Closing Time was written for Semisonic frontman Dan Wilson's unborn baby. One day at a time is a good mantra. It was very interesting to go back last week. My team did great although the organization piece is a total mess. It's good to know things got done while I was away but it's such a nightmare to try and get everything back in shape so we aren't wasting time looking for things. Oh well. It is what it is. Good luck this week!

I hope everything is going well with work! Thank you for your comments on my blog! We did IVF with Eden. I wonder if we went to the same doctor since we both live in the same area? Your baby is adorable!
