I’m a light sleeper. It doesn’t take much to wake me from my slumber. I often wake multiple times a night, even if the kids are sleeping soundly and not making a peep. And then there are times when I sleep well but dream all night so wake up still feeling like I was awake half the night. But anyway….I digress.
Since being back to the day job, that’s one thing I can say, at least I’m sleeping. I’m juggling so many things right now that when my head finally hits the pillow, I’m exhausted, I’m out and I’m sleeping very soundly.
I’m still adjusting to everything. The first two weeks back I think I told Kristen everyday that I was quitting. I haven’t said it yet this week so I guess that’s progress. It’s not that I hate what I do, and I’m actually VERY grateful to be employed as I know there are a lot of people out there right now who would do anything for a job, any job. It’s just that I’m having a hard time with being away from the kids, not only the guilt of a mother who feels she’s neglecting her children but that in spite of the hard days and the lack of adult conversation, I really miss them. And the few hours we get in the evenings are great but not enough.
But I’m trying to stay positive, see the end goal in all of this. I must add a little side note that October is crazy busy with shoots and I only have a couple more sessions left available….yay! And if you’re one of those people who want colourful fall leaves in your photos, you better get in touch sooner rather than later.
With that I’m signing off, I’ll finish with this photo of the Oshawa sky from a couple of Saturday’s ago when I was there for a Girlfriend’s shoot.
