T.G.I.F - we all say it, we all mean it, but now Friday means so much more to me than it ever did before. It is always nice to have the weekend upon you, but for me it means I can go home and be with my daughters. It seems now that I am working full time there just aren't enough hours in the day to do all I need to do and make sure they all have the attention that they all crave and deserve. Ok, not all of my girls crave my attention. My 14 year old is too cool to hang out with the family now.
Now Friday means that for two whole days I get to snuggle, laugh, play and just enjoy being with my girls. Friday used to mean that I have to go to work when I was working part time. Friday used to be my Monday. Now every week I look so forward to my Friday.

It has been awhile since I have blogged. I can truly say I have missed the outlet of saying whatever is on my mind. I have been MIA because I started a full time job for the first time in a REALLY long time. It is for a major corporation and it has turned my life upside down.
For those of you that have had to go back to work from being a stay at home Mom, you know exactly what I am talking about. The hours, the commute, the job, the people, the leaving your children behind, the missing out on things, and every other thing that goes with working.
I am still learning how to deal with it all. Honestly, I am struggling with the new job and I wish I could just be home for my girls. This job is so not what I signed up for. I was sold a bill of goods and now I am suffering.
Being away from my girls is killing me and it has effected them as well. I don't know how many times a week they ask me when I will be here. Every time they ask it just kills a part of me.
For all of those working Moms out there.....how do you deal with the guilt?
When does this get any better? How do you make it easier on yourself to get through everyday?
