I brought my husband in to check out the daycare which I think is "the one". He felt good about it too. So it's decided--we officially have a daycare center for Ella...a whole four days before I go back to work on Monday. I'm totally dreading leaving Ella, but at least we feel good about the daycare center so far (and I pray that I'll still feel the same way once Ella starts attending full-time).
Today's blessing was visiting with my hairdresser as I got my hair trimmed in preparation for my return to work. The last time I got it cut was a week or two before Ella was born, so it's been a while. I've been going to her ever since I moved here seven years ago, and it's always such a pleasure to chat with her. And I love that she doesn't judge me for being super boring and low-maintenance with my plain old long straight hair.
