Being a working mom and Project 31

I have been back at work for 2 days so far and have not cried once. I feel that is a decent accomplishment! I took 12 weeks of maternity leave and came back to an almost entirely different culture at work. When I left in November we were at roughly 200 employees and now are at about 115. People have been demoted, moved, fired, or left willingly. We have an entirely new payroll and employee system that was rolled out shortly before I left but is now in full effect (lots to learn there). They upgraded all of our phone systems and will be upgrading all computers shortly. So, basically short of the building moving, it is VERY different. I was welcomed back with wide open arms though and told how much I was missed. Getting back into the swing of things was not as scary or difficult as I had feared. Lizzy starts daycare next week, I think it will be a lot harder at that point!

Project 31

Day 2: What makes you uniquely you?
I’ve been a vegetarian since I was 3 or 4, by choice not forced upon me. I’m incredibly patient. I have strong faith in God. I can burp as well as most every guy I meet. I read, a LOT. I could live off of french fries  or any type of potato really. I never apologize for being who I am at my core.
