Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July everyone!  It just so happens that today (okay, yesterday...) marks the release of the last movie I worked on pre-Jack.  A few days ago I went to the Cast and Crew screening and got to see the movie.  It has some flaws but I think it looks spectacular and the actor playing Spidey does a great job.  It's nice to be part of such a large-scale movie with so many moving parts and crew members and know that, in some tiny way, I (and the awesome production office) helped it all run smoothly.  

Going to the screening was weird in a way because I hadn't seen any "work people" since Jack was born.  But it was so good to see everyone.  Of course, the inevitable questions about when I was coming back to work came and I answered them with some amount of tact I think.  Being there did make me miss work though.  Everyone understood that I can't come back to work if I want to see Jack at all Monday through Friday, but it's just a bummer that my career has no wiggle room for families.  Oh least I love hanging out with Jack and I recognize truly how fast time flies and how quickly he's growing up.  But in a few years hopefully he'll love watching the movie and be excited that his mom's name is in the credits.
