Expectation vs. Reality: An Honest Look at Maternity Leave

In addition to caring for F3 on maternity leave, here is a list of some of the things I expected to accomplish:

  1. Get ahead on my goal to read 12 books this year
  2. Begin to wrap up PMP training for certification
  3. Routinely attend workout classes
  4. Finish the Kon-Mari process for my home
  5. Soak up all the vitamin D
  6. Setup regular visits with friends and activities
  7. Fit into pre-pregnancy clothes

Things I have accomplished so far on maternity leave:

  1. The Vampire Diaries (8 seasons)
  2. Workin’ Moms (1 season)
  3. Lucifer (3 seasons)
  4. The Umbrella Academy (1 season)
  5. Treat my robe as day wear
  6. Stave off showering until I offend myself
  7. Fully relapse into my addiction to tortilla chips

I have 6 days left though so the world is basically my oyster…
