The first day back at work did feel like my first day all over again. Things were new,yet there was some level of familiarity with things.
It was an eventful start to my time back. Work and projects and deliverables were piled on to me from pretty much the moment I got there.
This is my second week back. This is the first week where wifey is at home alone with the kids during the day. It is certainly a massive challenge, especially as everyone adjusts to things. That adjustment is not just for us parents, but for Leyla also. She now has to get used to not always getting attention and having to be more patient for things. That is proving difficult.
It will take a while for things to settle down. The actual delivery of Elisha went very smoothly and there were not any post-natal issues. The challenge now is less about having a baby, and more about coping with a young family.
The home sale and purchase are both ticking along - nothing concrete yet - but no big issues either. Packing has gone well, there is still a lot left, but things that can be easily packed in advanced and left at my parents home, have been.
I would say job change and baby deliver have now been negotiated and the home move is the scariest out of the three now.
