Weekly Update!

I haven't had too much time to blog yet, I've been working on a fussy baby bird this week & otherwise haven't had too much to share with the world on here. We got another winter storm Sunday night through Tuesday giving us 5 inches of snow with a nice layer of ice on top. Hubby was able to leave work early(7:00p) Monday since the road conditions were less than stellar, but had to work normal the rest of the week; now since so many people missed worked Monday & Tuesday they are having him work Saturday & possibly Sunday! :( Enough woe is me!

My latest thoughts have consisted of whether or not to return to work, right now my husband works very hard for me to be able to stay home with baby bird & it has been this way since baby bird was born.  I've tried so hard to explain how & why I feel the pull to return to work & I really can only base it on a bad day or personal spending.  I have always worked since I turned 16 & have always been able to buy the things I like whether it's been scrubs, purses, or shoes & now I haven't been able to do that, someone else has to treat me to be able to have those things. It's an incredibly humbling feeling of having to completely rely on someone else & I've never been quite sure if I liked it.  The other part of this is not to say that I don't enjoy every moment that I have with baby bird, but every woman needs & deserves a break from baby. I rarely have the chance to get away as my family lives in Virginia & I only have my mother in law to care for baby bird as hubby works so much & 2nd shift. When I have these thoughts I have to remember how blessed I am to be able to spend this time with baby bird & how thankful I am that hubby wants to work so that I can witness all of baby bird's growth & development. I just wonder how everyone else deals with these thoughts & feelings because I'm really completely torn as whether to return to work or not...
