Very apologetically, our nanny arrived at 7:51 this morning. "It won't happen again," she said. But then she astutely noted, "I know I say that every day." Well, no. She has probably 2 days a week that she's on time or early. It's the three days of the week that she's late that bother me. Usually it's only 5 minutes, maybe 10. That doesn't sound like much, I suppose. But considering that my preference is to be at work well before 8 (for a long time before Julian it wasn't unheard of for me to be at work by 7...I can't get into the building before 6:30), it's hard for me to manage my schedule, still get to see Julian in the evening, and have her arrive around 8am.

The other problems we had with her in the beginning have largely dissipated. I think that if we make it clear that on-time in the mornings is not negotiable for us, she'll adjust. At least I hope so... Now to figure out how to have that conversation.

Current Mood: tired tired

You know, my sister lives in Silversprings, MD and she had a nanny for their daughter while she was away for deployment. I don't know how far away you guys from there, but she could make a referral?

Sorry you're not feeling well... as for the not feeling your hand thing, I have that sporadically, it's probably carpal tunnel...eek!

It's actually Silver Spring, MD (two words, and spring is singular not plural). It's a pet peeve of mine, because I live there. Same town as your sister. :)

And yes, it's probably carpal tunnel. I've had carpal tunnel since I was 15 or so. But this is now nearly constant, and I'm not a musician anymore, so it doesn't make a lot of sense. I'm just annoyed and not enjoying it.

Mea Culpa...

Didn't know that about Silver space Springs. heheheh.

That's so cool... Well, I know I will definitely make it out there (hopefully this year). Her daughter is two and a half years old. I should get you in touch with my sister, she's insane, but fun and finishing up her dissertation. Especially if the Nanny continues to cause problems. The one she had she raved about....

I'm sorry that the CT has flared up again...you do a lot of keyboarding at work...that's why I brought it up. *sigh*

These things get worse. I played field hockey in high school and now, almost 20 years later (gulp) I get all sorts of pains related to that and cheerleading (double gulp) that annoyed me before but not nearly as much as they do now. It's like my damn body is falling apart. I am going to drops some weight and see if that helps.

I'm not really appreciating it.

I think you just figured out how to start that conversation, no?

She rather opened the subject herself this morning, which maybe helps?

She arrived on time this morning. I'm going to give her a few days to see if she's figured it out or not.
