11:00 pm Bedtime.
3-4:00 am Lucy wakes up at least once. Nurse her and put her back to sleep.

6:45 Out the door for work.

10:30 Catch up on email, little bit of free time
- 3 pumping sessions
- 9 hours of out-of-home work
- 2 ½ hours of working out
- At least 2 nursing sessions for Lucy, more likely 4
- Allowance for 6.25 hours of sleep, but with wake-ups it’s really more like 4-5 hours. Getting in bed before 11:30 is a miracle.
No wonder I’m exhausted! You’ll notice there’s almost no time in my day for housework, laundry, or cooking- thank goodness for a rockstar husband who takes of it all for me. I don’t know what I’d do without him.
