back to work one year now

ok, I have one year under my belt of returning to work and love my job and co-workers. Extra money for college, travel and savings has been nice

However 2 issues that drive me nutsClick here to enlarge

My kid and I argue getting out the door every morning something fierce and trust me I do all that stuff you are supposed to do the night before but she IS NOT a morning person. Even if we get up 30 minutes earlier we still have arugments getting her butt out the door. SighClick here to enlarge

I have gotten fatter bc I don't have as much time to walk and we do not eat as well as we used to bc I have no time to cook.

I miss seeing my friends as much.

Synopis/blog over...these are the items I have not adjusted well toClick here to enlarge

The thing with the kid is not just you. Click here to enlarge Emma is like molasses in January every morning trying to get her butt moving. This morning she was "reading a book" and couldn't be bothered to listen, get moving, get her jacket on, etc. Click here to enlarge I'm glad she wants to play with books, but GET MOVING ALREADY.

The fatter thing happened to me too when I got a steady job. Hopefully, I'll figure it out eventually.

Kid Click here to enlarge Morning Click here to enlarge

Me: Stuart, get dressed.
Stuart: OK! (happy cheerful voice, like it just occurred to him he needed to stop and get dressed)
Me: Stuart, I'm getting in the shower - GET DRESSED!
Stuart: OK! Click here to enlarge
Me: OMG! STUART! GET. DRESSED. WHAT ON EARTH HAVE YOU BEEN DOING?!?!
Stuart: I am getting dressed Click here to enlarge (he still has on pj bottoms and hasn't gotten any further than when I got in shower)

That convo happens damn near every day. He is 8. I seriously fear for my sanity when he becomes a teenager.

I think our boys were separated at birth. Throw in a few "STOP PLAYING WITH THE DOGS AND PUT SOME UNDERWEAR ON THIS TIME"'s and you've got our morning Click here to enlarge

"Mom, I know! I'm getting dressed!!!"

"Then, why in 20 minutes, have you only put on your shirt? And it's not the shirt I laid out for you"

"But I'm getting dressssssssseeeedd!"

:sigh
