Recovery Day!

So this was my first week back at work. All in all I can say "I'M TIRED!!!" I did three day shifts and then last night I worked my first night shift. 6pm to 6am. It actually went better than I thought it would, I wasn't all that tired during my shift, but I'm feeling it now. I came home and we don't have church until 1:00, so I tried to catch up on some sleep, but it was really hard for me to fall asleep, even though I was extremely tired. I'm just not used to sleeping during the day. I really like the work part though, so I'm hoping I can adjust appropriatly. I would have never thought I would be so excited to start working again, but I am. Probalby a combination of having adult conversation again, getting me out of the house once in awhile, and doing what I love the most...helping people, but I'm loving it right now. We'll see how long that sticks huh?! :)
I'm so lucky to have such a great Mom. She came out this week to help watch Madalyn for me since I worked three full days. Madalyn loved playing with her Grandma and I appreciated the help A LOT! Leaving at 6 in the morning makes babysitters a little difficult. And thanks to some nasty weather in Wyoming, we got to keep Grandma for a few more days. Although visiting the family is a lot of fun, I do wish it was somehow possible to have all our family closer. Someday maybe!

What's a visit from Grandma without gifts for the grandbaby?! This is a new swimsuit Grandma got for Madalyn, along with the matching hat. I think she's ready for the pool, what do you think? And I may be a little biased, but she is looking pretty darn cute in it too.

Madalyn discovered Grandma's glasses and thought they were pretty neat. As far as the picture....I don't dare say more about it. :)

We all took Madalyn to the park one day. She still hates the swing, but loves the slides. Her hair cracked us up when she was in the tunnels. Can we say static gard?

Madalyn experienced her first popsicle with Grandma too. She liked it for awhile, but then I think it got too cold for her.
