That first week back at work


…and was it tiring. My goodness, fitting in breakfast and maybe a run in the jogging stroller, then over to the daycare (which had an Easter egg hunt today; Veeka was not impressed) and then to work. Getting there is not bad as I still miss the worst of the rush hour. But leaving at 5 p.m. to hit the worst of the traffic – aaargh. I’ve found the quickest route home possible but on a good day it still takes a solid 50 minutes in killer traffic. Again, that’s a *good* day.
This week was quieter than last week. We said good-bye to Nancy and Alex, who won’t be back in Virginia for a long time – if ever – and then today the Little One got her citizenship papers along with a letter from George W. Bush. So on Monday it’s over to the Social Security office to apply for a card and then to the post office to apply for a U.S. passport. And then we can travel!
Tomorrow, Susan is coming over to watch Veeka while I get my taxes done. Can’t add up those numbers with her running about; am including a photo of her smiling mischievously at the kitty.
