Business suits and breast pumps in America: The Travel - Part 2

I had about 150 pages that needed to be printed for the presentation, including mocks of the new attractive labels we are implementing for the Nature Certified line of organic skincare.
I was feeling reasonably optimistic as our new customized bamboo containers for the soon to launch organic butters had come in just in time. The printing didn't go well though. After working all night, I had chosen to go to a small local printing shop in the morning. However, their system had trouble reading our files. After waiting an hour, I telephoned my husband and asked him to release me from waiting at the store.

The Backstory- Part 1

I have a six month old that I am exclusively breastfeeding. I take my responsibility very seriously. I believe that breastfeeding is one of the best gifts you can give your baby. The nourishment value of breastfeeding is unparalleled.
I also enjoy the experience of feeding my baby. The joy I see in his eyes as he drinks his milk is gratifying. I am not a "breastfeeding Nazi" as my husband and I like to call those that make you feel bad about not breastfeeding or push you too hard to breastfeed. It is a huge commitment that some may not want to or cannot make. I have worked very hard to keep my milk supply up and to be able to fulfill this commitment.

My son was born before his due date. Sometimes I pumped 6-8 times a day after breastfeeding to get my milk supply up to exclusively breast feed. Given the history, I stay committed to my responsibility.
