So remember back when I said I was going to do a blog series on going back to work? On quick and easy fashion, cheap work clothes and then on how I cook? Yeah. So that hasn’t happened like I planned on. The reality is that how busy I am is a completely true reflection of a working mom. Instead of a fashion post today, I’ll just be honest about a few things.
I’m struggling- and I feel that this pretty much can be applied to all areas.
- Food: We’ve ate out more in the last month than we have most of the summer. Perhaps all of last year combined. THAT might be a bit of a stretch, but we were on financial lock down last year and now that we have more money… and less time… we are spending it on eating out. Usually I try to prepare a few meals on Sundays to get ahead for the week but we went to the inlaws for dinner, which was amazing… but now I feel behind.
- Fashion: I‘m a wrinkled mess. Clothes off the floor, hair from yesterday. I do NOT look like a fashionista today. At least I remembered to put on deodorant. I think.
- Family: I am getting better about putting the laptop down for a few hours and holding my babies. I’m not perfect but my work will perpetually be there and I need to make family a priority.
**Note I am not even going to discuss working out… (I’ve gained 8lbs since this summer- BAHHHHHHHHHHHHH)
