Really Random Time!

Random Tuesday? Yes please!

Sean and Natalee are gone for the week so that I can rest... they also took the dog. It's lonely and quiet in the house, but I kinda need that every now and then.

My ear has been plugged since I've been pregnant, it's so annoying because everything kinda of echo's back after you speak. It used to be the left one, but now it's the right one. There is no discrimination here.

We have a public restroom at work, and two that are for staff only. I usually use the closer staff one, but the other day I went to the second one... and there are tons of People magazines in there, score! Obviously, more women use the second than the first.

Since my uterus is all ticked off at me, I can't move around at all without crazy contractions... so my work is finding me lost of "desk stuff" to do so that I don't have to be out in the field. I am so thankful for that, hopefully it'll keep me off of bedrest. I'd go CRAZY if they put me on bedrest right now, unless my doctor would be willing to write a note to Sean that instructed him to wait on me hand and foot and do anything I ask, then I guess it would be totally awesome. I'd probably even be able to catch up on Glee. The contractions were bad enough that the other day someone at work (who didn't know about them), said to me "Wow, I can see you having a contraction through your sweater!" That is impressive observation.

My Christmas tree is still standing... I guess I should have been a little less pessimistic about my child and her ability to not break things.

We bought a new puppy... did I tell you that already? Her name is going to be Holly, she is a black lab and will be coming home around New Years. I think we may be a little bit crazy to get a puppy at this particular time, but that is just how we roll.

Yay for Natalee not breaking the tree. Noah's doing really good leaving the tree alone too.

a contraction through your sweater? that's nuts - how tight was the sweater?

I feel bad for you and your crappy uterus. I was so worried I was going to have to bed rest with G. They made me do partial the last 4 weeks. that really cut into the maternity leave

New dog! Wheee!

It's nice that your work is trying to find quiet things for you to do.

Did I already tell you what I did about the tree when my kids were little? I decorated the whole thing with big jingle bells so I would always know if someone was getting into the tree. It worked pretty well. :)

If you need a doctor note, call me :-) Natalee will take good care of her Mommy....I think most men are missing that "take care of your wife" gene!
