This was my beautiful view of the monument at Logan Square this morning. I would not normally walk this way, but it is my first day back at work and Dallas and I dropped Makai off at his new day care this morning. The center is a bit closer to the Logan Square train station so after we got him settled in, I headed for that stop for the train to work.
I won’t really get into whether or not I’m ready to be back in the office working or how much I’m going to miss hanging out with my little family, but I think you can draw your own conclusions. Today, the actual day, hasn’t been too bad so far.. not as bad as the anticipation of today. That said, Makai’s new teacher said that she’d send me daily updates so I’ve been refreshing my email about twice a minute.
I know everything will be fine. Makai will be great – learn new things, make new friends – and I will enjoy getting a paycheck again. It’s just another transition phase that’s throwing everything on it’s head just when we thought we had it all worked out.
