Number 94 on my list of 101 things to do in 1,001 days was to go back to work and NOT cry. I went back to work today and shockingly, I didn’t cry once!!! My plan was to keep myself as busy as possible in order to not think about the fact that I wasn’t with my baby. It’s still our busy season at work and I didn’t even go to my office, I was working at one of my client’s offices. Since I was at a client’s office, I definitely had work to keep me busy all day. I will say the one thing I really didn’t like (aside from just being at work in general) was pumping. I’m not a fan of pumping while at work! Justin sent me several pictures of Carter throughout the day so that also helped.
The one part of the day that about made me cry was when I got an email from one of our receptionists that I had a delivery at the office. I wasn’t expecting anything, but as soon as she said that, I immediately thought that Justin sent me flowers. He has sent me flowers to work on Valentine’s Day and my birthday every year that I’ve been working at my firm, so that was my first thought. I called him and he swore up and down that he didn’t send anything. So I asked the receptionist what the delivery was and she sent me these pictures:
So since it said it was “from Carter”, I actually had no idea who it was from. One of our employees offered to call the florist to see who actually ordered the flowers. Come to find out, it was from my in-laws. How sweet of them!!! They’re in Mexico right now on a mission trip so I can’t call them to say thank you. They are so awesome.
Overall, today was a success. We’ll see how I am by Friday though :)
