Update & Nutella

One of the very first posts that I had queried folks about working on Saturdays. I was in a fairly bitter place at that point -- having just returned from maternity leave and having an in-the-office expectation for Saturdays placed upon me.

Today is Saturday -- a rather dreary, weather-turning colder one at that -- and I'm in the office. And I'm the only one here. And I'm being productive -- finishing up little tasks that I'd put aside for this day, doing some file cleaning, some organizing, and I'm OK with it.

Partially, I'm realizing that not only was I feeling like cracking because I was never home, but also because I was never fully at work, either. Today I'm fully here -- the Baby Boy is at home and I'm able to be efficient and productive and not resentful toward anyone. It's a really, really good feeling.

Also helped by the fact that I have a specific ending time with a really great reward -- an afternoon brunch with friends at a favorite breakfast place that has Nutella-stuffed French Toast. Is is breakfast? Is it dessert? Do I care? It's FANTASTIC and it makes me smile.

Oh my, I have never thought of Nutella stuffed French toast. Slices of heaven. I usually just eat it out of the jar with a spoon. :)

Oh. My. Goodness. That sounds absolutely heavenly.

Mmm mmm good!

I just read your previous post, and I wanted to say boy howdy, I hear ya. This seems to be a constant theme on my blog; I wrote this a few months back and it was cathartic--especially all the comments. It is good to know we're not the only ones, eh?
