Welcome Back Lee Anne.

See this picture? What's that you ask? Oh, it's just my pump. On the floor. Of a PUBLIC restroom.

I had my first day back at a work function yesterday after having Walker. It was a loooonggg day with a babysitter coming to our house at 7:30 a.m. and staying until 5:30 p.m. Nothing like jumping back into the outside world with a 10 hour day. Ha!

Anywho...I spent most of yesterday at my Leadership Oklahoma City session at Chesapeake Energy and at the Chesapeake Arena learning more about economic development in Oklahoma City.

But, what I didn't look into before I went (because let's face it, as I have mentioned before, I am a procrastinator and not very organized) is where in the world would I pump during the day?

I thought I could use an office in the building we were in...but after further investigation, all of the offices had floor to ceiling windows on 3 of the 4 walls and I really didn't feel like giving the Chesapeake employees a show.

So, I went to the restroom. I plugged my pump into the only outlet next to the sink and pulled the pump as far as it would go to the first stall. And lo and behold, the cord was too short. I had to pull the tubes under the door which meant I couldn't stand up, but I had to sit down.

On the floor.

Of a public restroom.

Things really got interesting when the janitor walked in and tripped over my cord.

That was fun.

Welcome back Lee Anne. Welcome back.

Been there done that. You haven't been truly disgusted until you pump in an airport "family" bathroom. Ugh. Hope going back goes smoothly!
