Obviously...

I'm not doing so well at regularly blogging right now. Can't imagine why.

Some of it is just that there isn't much going on in my life other than the obvious, taking care of G. And that isn't really very different day-to-day. Life at six weeks is about the same as it was at four weeks. I'm trying to get as much sleep as possible, and keep us fed and the house somewhat presentable. Beyond that... I've got nothing.

I am thinking about some bloggy changes. Not quitting the blog, just some changes...

I have lots of ideas of things I'd like to do, both online and in real life, but naptime is too short. And I have to remind myself that I've still been recovering from the c-section. At what point is that excuse too old to use anymore? Probably today, since I'm officially no longer "disabled" as far as work is concerned and I should have been back at work today. I still have another 6 weeks through FMLA, but if I couldn't take unpaid leave I'd have had to be back today.

Honestly, that seems completely crazy to me. In no way are either of us ready for me to be working full time again already. I am so grateful that I have the flexibility & didn't have to return so soon.

Six weeks. It's flown by. I'm sure the next six weeks will too.

I'm so blessed.

I have an idea - I'll come to visit you next week and shake things up a bit! I can hardly wait!

6 weeks leave? You poor thing. In the UK, we get 9 months paid leave, and even after that, we don't have to go back in order to keep the money. I feel so blessed when I see what other mums have to deal with. I am nowhere near ready to leave Ruth for 10+ hours a day, and she's 10.5 months old!

9 months would be WONDERFUL. The 12 weeks I can manage just isn't enough.
