I think I’ve finally reached a point in my life where I don’t really care about building relationships with my coworkers. I mean, I don’t think it’s a good idea to just be a cold, cross bitch to them, and I don’t have any desire to be that way, but I’ve just lost the drive to put any effort in at all. I feel relatively neutral, and even a little avoidant, about the whole thing, which actually saves me quite a bit of time and energy. We’ll see if it sticks.
This will be the first week that my new schedule begins. I still have five empty time slots, so that paired with the cancellations I have received (so far) this week, and I only have 18 people on the calendar at the moment. Since I’m scheduled to be in the office long enough to see 27 clients, I will have ample time to catch up on anything and everything I’ve fallen behind on—mainly treatment plans. Hopefully my boss will send new clients my way this week, and next week I will have closer to 27 people on the calendar.
Furthermore, since the nanny is “shadowing” me for the next few weeks (I use that term lightly, because there isn’t much actual shadowing that will happen. It’s more like we will both be with my daughter at the same time so my daughter has a chance to acclimate.) I am hoping I will get a chance to catch up on some household responsibilities as well. Some of the things on my radar, that have been neglected literally since we moved in, include wiping down the baseboards and sweeping our bedroom floor.
My daughter is going to be eleven months old tomorrow, and I only planned on breastfeeding her for twelve months. The weening is well on its way. Lately she’s only been eating 5-6oz of breastmilk while I’m at work, so I reduced the number of times I pump from two to one. That’s made things easier for me as well. Hopefully by January I wont really have to pump at all.
The last thing worth mentioning this morning is that my husband and I finally have another date day on the calendar! It’s been too long. We celebrated my birthday at the beginning of November, and it even though that was only four weeks ago it feels like four months. We usually either go to dinner, a movie, or both on our dates, but this time I think we’re going to use it as an opportunity to relax and have sex. It’s been extremely difficult to work sex into our lives lately with the sleep deprivation. As soon as our daughter goes to sleep, all we want to do is either veg out or sleep ourselves. As you can imagine, that puts quite a damper on any baby making.
I’m not really sure that my body can make a baby right now anyway, but hopefully, when I stop breastfeeding, my body will become a little more hospitable for my daughter’s little brother or sister.
Well, my first client is almost here, so I better review their file. Until next time!
