One of those days…

ImageYesterday was one of those days… One of those days where I found out, after being at work all day- that I still had the tag on my new blouse. One of those days where I had so much to do that I couldn’t get out of work on time. One of those days where when I got home, the work was just beginning. One of those days where Little J cried over everything, and I wanted to. Here’s to today, and hoping it’s one of those days that’s a little better than yesterday

Working Mother Identity

This post on ABC News rang so true to my life… http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/lifestyle/2012/04/working-moms-social-misfits-how-to-fight-isolation/┬áRecently, I switched departments in my office- so, wanting to fit in with ‘the girls’ upstairs… I invited THEM to happy hour. I have not received any invites since. It makes you question whether people just don’t like you (totally possible), or if they don’t invite you because you have children.┬áSend an invite, I’ll accept every now and then!

99% of the time, given the choice between happy hour or time with my boys… I’ll choose time with my boys. But every once in a while, when I’ve had a particularly frustrating (or satisfying) day at the office- I want to let loose a bit and head to happy hour!

When the majority of your time is spent at the office, and you struggle with the pressures of motherhood, working and being a wife… you have to maintain some sense of self. This blog helps me with that, and provides me an outlet. I hope that the ABC News article shows other working mothers that they are not alone, and that we are all experiencing similar issues!

What do you do to maintain a sense of self?
