**Written Last Night
Today is my last day of maternity leave - I've been off since 11/25. I'm so glad I took off the 4 weeks prior to my due date and feel fortunate that I was able to have so much time off after Charlie arrived. It feels like forever since I worked but on the other hand I feel like those 5.5 months just flew by.
Today Charlie and I had our typical day of eating, playing, reading, napping and we also had time to run a quick errand too. My mom asked if I wanted to get a pedicure with her and I said yes - I needed one and I had a gift certificate burning a hole in my purse pocket. It was nice to be pampered with a "Chocolate Pedicure" but I missed my little guy - how am I going to go so long without seeing and holding him?
My plan is to get up around 6:00 am and I should be home by 4:30 pm. Charlie sleeps until 7:00 am or later so I'm not planning on seeing him in the morning. :( Before last Friday, I had only been away from him for 3 hours tops (last Friday I didn't see him for 5 hours). I hope he doesn't wonder "where is she??".
Something tells me tomorrow is going to be a tough day.
