Tomorrow is the big day.

If you've been following my blog or any of my posts on the stitching boards you probably know tomorrow is my first day of work at a new job. I'm so nervous - I haven't worked in about 16 months now and I worked my last job for more than 6 years. That makes about 8 years since I had a "first day on the job". Dh is also nervous as tomorrow is his first day at a new job too.

I'm also really nervous about how Katie is going to be a daycare. :( We had another trial run on Thursday morning, which went okay, but not as well as Tuesday's dry run. She was crying and screaming when I came to pick her up. The teacher said she had been pushed by one of the other kids and that is why she was crying and that it had just happened and that she was fine the rest of the time I was gone. I'm sure that is true, but Katie was clingy and cranky the rest of the day - like she didn't want me out of her sight. Then this morning at the church nursery she was also clingy for the Sunday nursery volunteer. She is always fine in nursery so all I can guess is that she senses that something is up and mommy is going to be leaving her more often and she doesn't like it.

Mostly I've been trying to block out my anxiety about it all by stitching and stitching and more stitching. I finished part 2 of the Chatelaine Sampler Mystery this evening. Next I'm going to be stitching Lisa's RR for the Any Designer Band Sampler RR. Here is a pic of the Sampler Mystery.

Good Luck tomorrow! I'm sure Katie will do fine once she gets used to the routine.

Good luck today! I'm sure Katie will adapt just fine. It's always hard to go to a new place alone, but she'll make friends and grow to love it!

Hope you had a good day at the new job, as did your husband, and the kids were okay with the changes.

Maybe you will be able to relax with some stitching tonight.
