So I realized that this little blog has been full of food lately, I hope you all don't mind! it's just where I am at right now. But what else is going down you ask? Here's a little look.
Last week moved into a new office. It was only a move next door to my old office, but it has a window (that opens) and a door that shuts/locks. It is amazing how different I feel in there- just that bit of fresh air and natural light does a girl good. The locking door is a bonus. When I go back to work after maternity leave I will be back to pumping about 3x a day- last time around I had people walking in on me during this process left and right, ignoring the large sign I posted on the door (or just not knowing what 'pumping' was)- let's just say they were more than surprised to find me scrambling at getting myself hidden!
I am really getting excited to be done with work for awhile and off on leave... Just don't know when that will start. Oh the anticipation of a new baby is the craziest thing. I like my job, but it has been a turbulent 7 months or so with layoffs and reorganization. Over half of the department I am part of was cut, including our director. Lots of really good people are gone and it is sad. I some how managed to keep hold of my spot and my co-worker's spot. I hope after I come back, refreshed, in the winter I can really get down to business and show them why the work that I do is so important and why they need us around. Right now I am burnt out and more frustrated than anything.
