Tuesday Twelve

Twelve things I did today.

1. Got up at 5:30. When my alarm went off. Seriously? I don't think I've set an alarm in three years. Chris got me a new alarm clock two years ago for Christmas and I didn't even know how to set it.
2. Was showered, dressed, hair and makeup done by 6:45. In the morning.
3. Made a fabulous cup of iced coffee with a caramel shot. At home. Not "made" as in made it get into my car through the window at Dunkin Donuts.
4. Packed a lunch. For myself.
5. Left my house, with nobody crying or hanging from my leg to try to come with me, at 7:00.
6. Drove, listening to what I wanted to listen to, with no crying, fighting, or silly singing going on in the car.
7. Filled out my new hire paperwork at my new job. I love me some paperwork. Also watched a training DVD. Surprisingly, it wasn't dreadfully boring.
8. Observed a really fun class. I know I'm going to be good at this job.
9. Came home to children who were excited to see me, and I was excited to see them.
10. Took the big boys for a 30 minute bike ride in the bike trailer. This is perhaps one of all of our favorite things to do. And there was no fighting in the trailer.
11. Ate dinner with my whole family, which almost never happens. After dinner Chris cleaned up and I brought the boys for a walk. Jack rode in the stroller, David rode his bike, and Henry walked. We splashed in every puddle we saw, most of them more than once.
12. Gave three baths, read 9 books, had lots of snuggles, and no yelling.

I think this new job is going to be wonderful for our family.

You will find out that going to work is much easier than being a stay-at-home-mom. I love Mondays because I can come to work and not hear fighting or "Mom, mom, mom....." And you do look forward to seeing them at the end of the day. E-mail me and let me know what you're doing, job-wise. Glad things are going so well. :)
