We had a nice weekend. We took Baby to the "big city" to go the newly reopened Academy of Sciences. He liked looking at all of the fish. I look forward to going back. I think each visit will be different as Baby gets older.
On Saturday night, we watched "Rachel Getting Married" which was a highly emotional film. I wasn't sure what to expect. The main charcter, Kym, played by Anne Hathway, struggles with addiction and other destructive behavior. Much of this pain and abuse occurs as the result of a horrible family tragedy. I won't reveal what happens but the film made me wonder about the resilience of human beings and how we are able to survive after crushing tragedy. Do you ever get over great loss? Or do you just learn to cope with it? The movie is very well done but be aware that it will take you on an emotional rollercoaster.
Now, I'm back at work. I am so grateful to have a good job with excellent benefits. Especially in this economic climate. But I really wish for a part-time job that would allow me to spend more time with my baby. I feel like I'm missing so much. It makes it hard for me to feel focused at work. Maybe someday, I'll find my dream job working part-time at a museum. Until then, I'll just have to make lots of phone calls during the day to see what Baby is doing.
