This week I work four days. I worked today and normally after a school day I get a day off, but I have to go to an extra training tomorrow, meaning I'll work three days in a row. I don't think I have realized how much I need those days in between work days to recoup, to regather, to reenergize. And to get my house and baby and life in order. Thinking about going into work tomorrow and then going in again on Wednesday makes me want to cry. How do moms do it with such little babes that work every day? I give mad props- it is exhausting and a lot of work. All I want to do tomorrow is stay home and fold laundry and cuddle my baby and decorate the house for fall. When a woman wants to fold laundry, you know there's a problem. Thursday, I keep telling myself. I just have to make it to Thursday.
Thank you for all of your fabulous comments on yesterday's post about nursing and low milk supply. I guess it's proof that if you really want to get a group of women to talk, just ask them about breastfeeding. Notice that no men commented on the post? I haven't had a chance to respond to your helpful comments yet, but I will hopefully tomorrow. Eight hour trainings are good for something, right?
And now, I'm off to pump.
And then to shower because I smell like milk.
And then to bed.
5:40 comes so freaking early.
To get you out of your Tuesday grind:
+ Loved this link on using facebook to promote your blog. I admit, there is so much that I don't know about facebook (and so much they won't tell us about their algorithm!) that I loved these helpful hints.
+ I have toyed with the idea of getting a separate Instagram account for my blog and for my personal life. Would you ever do that? Here's great advice on how to juggle multiple ig accounts
+Died of happiness when I read this article on the benefits of reading actual books. I am printing 130 copies and studying this article with all of my little I-hate-reading! students. That'll teach em!
+ This seven layer bean dip is my absolute favorite salty snack and Aubrey nailed the recipe. If you don't already make this, you need to!
+ I am the worst at thrift store shopping, but this post makes me think there might be hope for me yet. Who out there is good at it and tell us all your tricks!
