I guess I didn’t know that many people were reading!

So, today was my first real day.  Orientation doesn’t count.  It was just sitting and listening to people talk at me about things I already know.  They were HARD days, because they were 8 hours long plus drive time. 

But the excitement of driving home, knowing I would get to see my boy?  That was pretty great.

Today was fun.  I worked one on one with the lead ultrasound tech at an outpatient facility.  Not a really great way to learn the hospital stuff, but a good chance for me and her to get some hands-on scanning done.  I have a feeling things are going to go a little quicker than I had first thought.  I hope so.  I would love to be off of training in just a few short weeks.  The nanny is working out SO well.  She is such a sweetheart.  She loves Ronan, and that makes me feel good – you take care of the people you love.  She’s constantly telling me how good he is, and sweet, so easy to take care of.  It makes me miss him more, but I love knowing that she feels that way.

Can we talk about tired?  I went to bed at 8pm last night.  I was so exhausted from being up to feed Ronan at night, and getting up early to go running, plus a full day of work.  Brock is the most wonderful husband.  He made dinner, and cleaned it up.  He did laundry, and didn’t make me feel bad when I went to bed so early.  I don’t know what I would do without him. 

Yeah, I can do this.  One more day till the weekend.

I know it’s been forever since I’ve had a picture of Ronan.  Let’s try this instead!

    I have an hour drive commute to and from work as well. It can be pretty rough when you’ve had a bad day my recommendation is the following:

    1. Keep a copy of your ALL time favorite songs. They are awesome to sing along to when you had a difficult day.
    2. Books on tape! Sometimes I’ll sit in the parking lot just to find out what’s going to happen.

    I’m glad things are working out for you, and hopefully you’ll be done with training soon. That would be great. So good that you got a nanny that you like so well on the first try. That has to make things a little easier on you.

    p.s. I saw the Memorial day lake pics…you look fantastic!!! I don’t know that I’ve ever looked that good in a bathing suit, and I haven’t even had a kid

    For some reason, all I got was the audio, and not the video.  He definitely sounds happy.

    A good nanny is one of the best tools in the working mommy arsenal, glad you got a good one!! And of course she loves Ronan, he looks like a lovable kiddo!!!  Stay safe and keep your chin up!!!!  It only gets better from here (harder but the joy makes up for it a thousandfold) :)
