Why is Life Cold?
i actually have a very happy life. i just saw this graphic one day and got an inspiration for another blog.
why not write about the stuff that makes life cold? from the huge, catastrophic, life-altering events to the seemingly trivial, little incidents
that rub you the wrong way. it doesn't have to be a personal experience, it can be something observed.
on writing these down, my intent is to learn to appreciate life more and have a better handle on things when life throws you a curve ball. i want whoever
will read this to contemplate, not get depressed. hopefully, you'll share with me your experiences as well so we can learn from each other.
I went back to work this week. It's not as difficult as I thought it would be. Although I miss my son very much, I have been busy catching up with the workload that before I know it, it's lunchtime or the end of the day. I go home during lunch to be with my son and express milk. I didn't want to do the latter here. Even if we have a private room adjoining to the womens' restroom, which I think the building's designers intended to be a nursing moms' room, I find it much of a hassle to bring the pump here and deal with ice packs.
I have been getting a lot of compliments with how I look. I love it because people who I usually don't shoot the breeze with come up to me just to pay me a compliment. The most common one is that I don't even look like I gave birth. One even asked if he was only imagining seeing me pregnant last year. The best compliment I got was that I look even better than before I got pregnant. Thank you boobies!
I must admit I'm also surprised I lost much of the weight really quickly, especially the tummy. Two weeks after giving birth I could already fit in my regular jeans, without doing anything. I now believe that breastfeeding is not only great for the baby, but for the mom as well. I thought that was just a marketing gimmick to get moms to breastfeed, hee hee. I'm sure another huge factor is the sleeplessness. Hey, I'll take raccoon eyes over a big paunch anytime!
