First Day

Tuesday, September 4, 2012

It's the first day of school for my kids and my first day back at work (part time) in nearly four years.  I'm  doing a short fill in for a friend and colleague that's on maternity leave.

I've been so nervous about this day.  My baby started elementary school today.  My heart went with him on the bus this morning along with my older son so makes me so proud every day.  It was hard to see them leave for school.  They're growing up so fast.  I've loved having them around the whole summer and now the house feels so empty.  Don't get me wrong, I love the silence but I still miss their voices around the house.

And now I have to get myself together and get to the hundreds of things that are on my to do list including "go to work!"  Ahhhh!  I was trying on outfits last night and realized I don't know what people wear to work anymore.  Some of my choices seemed more fit for a cocktail party than work.  And others seemed way to casual.  It is summer after all and super hot but are nice tank tops OK for work?  I think I'll skip those.  I'm going for a uniform of sorts.  Straight cut black pants and a nice short sleeved shirt.  Nothing fancy but still flattering.  Comfortable but not frumpy.

OK.  My heart is pounding a mile a minute.  Here I go!

Hope you're "first days" are going well.
