I started back to work this week. I have already worked close to 40 hours, and I still have today to work. It seems as though there is a lot of work to do to my store to get things where they should be. My employees don't seem to be getting along right now, customer service is a foreign concept, and I am not sure that this staff is going to get me through Christmas. I know, it seems early to think about that, but in the world of retail - that's what it's all about.
Physically, this week was pretty hard. My entire body has ached - probably because it's so not used to being on my feet for so long. I am also completely exhausted. Mike has been wonderful this week - he's gotten up with Abby and me during the night feedings. Our routine this week has been that I nurse her and then he puts her to bed, which can sometimes be challenging. I could sleep standing up right now.
Also, Abigail had her two month check up with Dr. Remus. The good news is that Abby weighs 12 lbs, and is in the 80th percentile for weight. She is also 24.75 inches long, and is in the 97th percentile for height. The bad news is that she had 5 shots yesterday - a hepatitis vaccination, tetanus vaccination, and a few others. She was fairly fussy last night, but she's been on tylenol since we left the doctor's office. She didn't go to bed until almost 11:30 last night, and she slept all the way until 6 a.m. It was nice to sleep all night.
This week, I am working early most of the days, which will be nice. We have to get ready for Abigail's baptism, which may or may not take place on Father's Day. We have it scheduled for the 11:30 mass on Father's Day, but the church has called and asked us to move it, which we really don't want to do. We'll see how this goes.
