A shout out

How do people work and have a family? NewFNP cannot imagine how she could manage both.

NewFNP left her house at 7:30 this morning. She worked, worked, worked, worked, worked - you get the picture. Then it took her thirty full minutes to drive five miles to her gym. She worked out for one hour while listening to iTunes and reading her prestigious alumni mag and then spent the next twenty-five minutes driving home.

Fucking major league baseball - can't those dickholes make a shuttle to the stadium so a sister can get home after a long day at work and not sit in a line of traffic with people sporting face paint and foam #1 hands?

Anyway, newFNP rolled into her house around 7:45, hit the showers *and then* began to prepare dinner. Thank God for leftover daal in the fridge. Then dishes, lunch for tomorrow, a little reading of "The Tipping Point" and now her newFNP sits, wondering how in the world parents do this?! And single parents - holy smokes! They must be perpetually exhausted.

So hats off, baby. Props to those parents who work like dogs and come home and work some more. How in the world do you do it?
