Life is sometimes very strange. It constantly amazes me how I can get exactly what I'm asking for and still not be satisfied with the end results. Case in point... As some of you might be aware, I bring Baby Girl to work with me (and Sweet Pea on school holidays and during the summer). Now, they are 2 and 5 respectively and - I can't say as I blame them on this - spending the entire day at the office with Mommy is not exactly their idea of joy. But you gotta do what you gotta do. Day care is too frickin' expensive (especially for 2) and I have the ability to bring them into the office with me so... During the summer they're both with me, which I thought would be a good thing. Baby Girl likes to be entertained by Sweet Pea, the perfect solution to my inability to get anything constructive done. Instead, I spend most of my day refereeing, putting them in time out, parceling out toys and rotating the video schedule - forget actually doing work like paying the bills, invoicing clients, even answering the phone can be a bit hairy if one of them is yelling. Now, it helps that I have excellent, understanding bosses (and that one of them happens to be my father), but really.
Today, both of my girls are with my Mother. Peace and quiet reign.
And I'm going out of my mind.
I miss them. All week I've been looking forward to the chance to get caught up and maybe get some writing done. Right now, I'm sitting at my computer screen, staring at the blank page and wondering what they're doing. God help me when Baby Girl starts school. I really won't know what to do with myself.
So, what have you gotten in life that didn't turn out the way you expected?
