four toes shy of a pedicure

What a whirlwind tour the last 48 hours have been. Today is day two at the new job. And the ooooh-ahhhhh factor has kinda worn off. I now see the challenges ahead. I have my work cut out for me.

But I'm still really excited to be where I'm at. How excited? So excited that I still want to make a good impression. So when I wore my cute red suede peep toe shoes Monday and realized that I hadn't painted my toenails, I rushed to paint the three nails on each foot that would show. I have yet to finish my pedicure. (And Taawd, if you say anything to anyone about that, I will never forgive you!)

I know it has been helter skelter for Amara too. It's been musical babysitters. Grandma2Amara watched her today. I wish I didn't have to rely on others to take care of my child. And I wish I could be home earlier to feed her dinner or give her a bath. I know these long days won't be a regular occurrence, but the first few days are always rough -- on all of us.

But the true test of this week? How on earth will I get home in time for trick or treating?

PS, wait until you all see Amara's costume this year for Halloween. Check that, wait until you see Dad2Amara's coordinating costume...
