Pit Stop In Mommy, Esq.'s Race Around The World

This is the longest I have ever gone between posts. I had a whirlwind trip home to Boston last weekend and now I'm working crazy hours again in London after catching a redeye on Sunday night. I billed 180 hours in 2 weeks to give you some idea of my schedule.

When I saw Ned on Saturday morning I was hoping for a "Mama!" that did not materialize but I did get extra hugs to fill me with maternal love. I enjoyed the time I had with them, took two naps when they did and repacked my bag.

Husband is all alone this week - and with a business trip today to boot. It has been an exciting transaction and a great learning experience but I'm ready to be home and to start thinking about long-term work/family issues.

Good luck. I am thinking about you. Those hours are brutal.

Oh, I ditto the blogger above me. Those hours don't sound like fun. Hang in there. Hopefully you get a break with the holiday coming up.
