Today was my first day back at work after the 2.5 week vacation. Last night after dinner, as we were getting ready to put Naomi to bed, I started to cry as I thought about having to go back to work and not getting to see Naomi during the day. Naomi, came over to me and gave me the sweetest hug, wiped my tears and said, "mommy, don't cry, because I'm right here!!" And the rest of the night she proceeded to hold my hand, hug me, and make sure I followed her wherever she went. If I wasn't right next to her she'd call out, "mommy!! come here! come here!" Definitely something I want to remember. (I wouldn't mind forgetting the bit where she threw a fit right before lights out cause she wanted to bring her toy stroller into bed with her and was told strollers dont belong in beds). sidenote: "because" is the new word of the week. She's just figured out to use the word, and uses it literally every chance she can. Yesterday afternoon she said she was coloring the monkey ho-ho green because he's naked. And the other night, her tongue was blue, because she had a popsicle. =)

Plus our weekends provided no downtime as we have had a packed schedule with birthdays, travelling, guests, you name it.
Today's my last day of work before I go on vacation though, and BOY do I need it. I haven't even started packing, but thankfully my boss gave me tomorrow off (I think it was a pity day since literally you can see the bags under my eyes, and my usual race across the trading floor has become a slow meander thanks to the exhaustion and widening belly). So tomorrow I plan on packing, grabbing some last minute things for the trip, including groceries!
Yes we are driving to Hyannis to catch a Ferry to Nantucket...yes we are basically tracking Hurricane Earl, which is now a category 4 hurricane headed straight towards Nantucket. Hopefully we'll miss it by a day though and our trip won't get affected, but who knows. Regardless, we were told to bring basic supplies like milk, bread snacks etc, both for in case we get stranded in Hyanis with no grocery stores open, or if we make it onto the island and they do cancel the Ferry's while we're out there...."island living" we were told.
Regardless, I'm excited to be off from work, spending time with the fam.
