a day of firsts
After weeks of drama, engagements, and vomit, there was a long line of firsts today for Mom2Amara and the family.
Amara became a princess...a Barbie princess for the first time. She still loves Cinderella, Jasmine, and Ariel. But she really wanted to be the island princess for her school's Halloween party today.
I walked into my new station for the first time today. I sat in my new newsroom and began a new chapter in my career. And if all goes well, my new office should be set up soon! Me! An office! Sure, I share the office with another manager. But oh. my. gawd. An office!
Because of my first day on the job, this afternoon marked Amara's first day with a new sitter. A lovely lady who is also picking Amara up after class. I had ever intention of calling shortly after school let out. But as we all know, life happened, and before I knew it - I was calling the sitter two hours later. Fortunately, there were no problems. And Amara adores her new caretaker.
Last but certainly not least...I ate food!! The other managers took me out to eat for lunch. I was cautious, eating mashed potatoes and some soup. But come dinnertime, I was ravished. And I hit the Mickey D drive thru with Amara. Bad? Yes. But it tasted so good! I needed some Tums afterwards but there were no stomach gymnastics tonight! I think I may be cured!
