Last week was my first week back at work but since Hunter was never very far from me it didn't seem like it. This week was a different story. I only had to work a couple of days but Monday was a day trip to Austin!
Twelve hours and fifteen minutes (not that I was counting or anything) away from my little man + 100s of miles + being on an airplane with no form of contact = a true test in being a working mom.
I have never been one to ease into things so kicking off going back to work this way really shouldn't be any surprise. I can say that the rest of the week was a piece of cake! My next challenge will come in December when I will have to be gone for two nights!!!
Can you blame me for not wanting to leave this face?!?!?
How time flies when you are having fun and getting very little sleep!
Hunter is one month old today and already on his 2nd trip to Houston. Joe's cousin, Joanie and Aunts Ruth, Elizabeth and Gay hosted a sip-n-see for the family to meet Hunter. It was wonderful to get to meet Joanie's little one Belen, who is two and half months older than Hunter, and to see so many family members that we hadn't seen in years.
I have to say the most special guest was Ms. Van who will turn 100 this year. She was so excited to get to be around two babies and we were so glad she was up to joining us for the afternoon.
Hunter is 3 weeks old and we are already embarking on our first road trip. Next week we are both having to work in Houston so we decided to take the week to visit Mama Nelle at the farm.
Second stop.....Houston for work!
On Tuesday morning we made the drive to Houston and were met by my parents who watched Hunter while Joe and I worked.
Third stop....back to the farm!
Wednesday morning we made the drive back to the farm. Joe was able to get in some hunting, killed a hog, raccoon, and armadillo. We spent some quality time with Mama Nelle and even had the chance to spend some great time with Gay and John.
Fourth stop....back to Houston!
Saturday morning we were back on the road to Houston....again! We were headed down for the sip-n-see hosted by Joe's cousin Joanie and Aunts Ruth, Gay and Elizabeth.
Fifth stop....farm...one more time!
The fourth stop was more like a pause because that evening we drove back to the farm to enjoy our final evening in the country.
Sixth stop....home sweet home!
Sunday morning we hit the road early to make it home. Hunter is just like his parents and seems to enjoying the traveling.
