Mom-lovin Hop No. 14

Ladies... As you read this I am currently working my first shift back at work after my maternity leave... Actually I'm still on maternity leave as Hazel is only 10 months. I really never ever thought I would be going back to work but for a couple of weeks I've decided to "make hay while the sun shines" and waitress 2 shifts a week during the busy cruise ship season here where I live. Waitressing is something that I'm pretty good at ((if I do say so myself)) and also something that will be financially worth time away from my sweetest girl... I think... ((In Canada we get paid minimum wage $10/hour plus our tips... So it's kinda sweet, Canada rocks y'all)) All that aside.... IM SOOOO NERVOUS! So if you're a praying kind of gal, pray for me!
