Wisconsin Wedding this Weekend!

Aaron and I are in his brother's wedding this weekend!

We are flying NON-STOP direct from Atlanta, GA to Madison, WI. 

We arrive Friday night about 8:15 PM CDT then get our rental car and check into the hotel.

The Wedding is at 2 PM on Saturday. 
I hope I can spend time with my mom and sisters Saturday morning beforehand!!!


Then before the rooster crows on Sunday -- Aaron and I are flying back to Georgia.


It sucks that we cannot stay longer, but we both have such limited paid time off. 
And we are trying to horde it for when the baby arrives.

I love my family, but I need to get SOME income while on Maternity leave!

I want to take the full 12 weeks off, but so much of that will be unpaid unless I scrimp and save every hour I can get!

12 weeks is 60 days of work.   60 days at 8 hours a day is 480 hours.

We are saving money now in preparation for the time off without pay.

After the 12 weeks is up and I return to work (that is the plan) we hope to hire a nanny.

I thought about quitting my job and being a stay at home mom, but it is better financially for us if I keep working.

I want to breastfeed but I can pump.  When I go back to work the baby will still have my milk... just not from the source. ;)

Financially, yes, it is better. But then, are you sure that it's all that matters to you right now? Make a wise choice. ;)

Good luck! It is hard to juggle a baby and a job. I was never able to breastfeed so I cannot comment on that although I know many women who tried and succeed and just as many women who tired and could not keep up. I know whatever you do, your baby will grow up healthy.

Just think, you can teach your baby healthy eating habits right from the start

Weight loss has been a constant problem for me. No matter what I try, it was always lots of pain and little result. Until now! I started the Herbalife Ultimate Weight LossProgram, lost 40 pounds so far, and it keeps coming off! I started at 6' tall and 210 lbs. I lost 20 lbs in March (down to 190), lost 10 lbs in April (down to 180), lost 5 pounds in May (down to 175), and so far in June I lost 5 more lbs (down to 170). I am 54 years oldandhave not been under 190 since my 30's.

So I became a Herbalife distributor so I can help lots of other people get the success I have had.

I hope you don’t mind if I save your post for future reference. I have been lurking on a few real estate blogs lately and that’s the most thoughtful and accurate analysis of the situation that I have read to date. Thanks.

I worked full time and breastfed. I didn't want to butmy husband lost his job when I was 38 weeks pregnant. I did pump but she refuseed the bottle so my husband brought her to me at work everday. We made it 6 months with exclusive breastfeeding, 3 more months with regular feedings plus solid food and I continued night feeding until she was 14 months old. I miss it and I'm so glad we made it as far as we did. Good luck to you, you can do it.
