Where do I even start?
My mind is going a mile a second and I can’t even get my thoughts processed correctly these days. It’s been almost nine months since I started working full time and I’ve got to be honest, it’s been difficult for me. On top of my thyroid condition (I HATE it!), being anemic and feeling tired all the time – it’s hard for me! It’s especially difficult knowing that my kids won’t have much of a summer because both parents are working full time, five days a week, to get the bills paid on time and such. You know the deal. I won’t bore you with the details.
I know I shouldn’t be complaining — many moms have been doing the full time gig for MANY years but I’m just expressing myself on MY blog.
I’m entitled to whine on my blog, right?
Yeah, I think so.
I normally don’t blog about my private life, especially now since I don’t have the time to blog leisurely (ugh!) but I’ll try to start sharing what’s going on in my
For instance, did you know I joined Weight Watchers over six months ago?
It’s because I didn’t share that part of my life. You may be asking why. Well, it’s because I feel like I have failed. I lost 7 pounds in six months!! Can you believe that? I can put the blame on my thyroid condition (although I’m sure it helped with my weight gain) but I’m positive it’s because I don’t count ALL of my points — which isn’t a good idea.
If you know Weight Watchers, then you know it’s very important to count your points in order to lose weight. But I guess you can call me lazy and unmotivated. I was doing ok during the month of April, when it was cool, because I was walking during my lunch break and noticing my legs were getting stronger and toned. Now that it’s scorching hot in New York, I tend to stay indoors where it’s nice and cool.
I’m telling you, when a mother works full time, five days a week — it takes a toll on EVERYTHING! I don’t know if I can speak for all the moms out there but I’m speaking for myself, obviously. I get home and all I want to do is nothing. Even though I try to thank God each and every day that I have a job, I still dream about the good ol’ days when I was home with the kids — especially now.
Before you know it, the kids will be starting school. Sigh… I NEED a tropical vacation.
