Bullet Points

on 01 February 2008

  • Thank you all for the lovely wishes for the New Boy. We're rather excited. Now we get to pin down a name. YAY for US!

  • Today is CEI's last day at the Workplace. I am going to miss her terribly, but she gave us joy. And also cake and ice cream, for which the New Boy is very grateful.

  • I did the dumbest thing I have ever done in the history of my LIFE. I take 2 allergy meds (yes, both approved by my Physician)--one at NIGHT and one during the DAY. This morning I got up. I poured a glass of water. I reached into the medicine cabinet and pulled down a bottle of allergy meds and took 2 NIGHT TIME PILLS!!! I don't know what I was thinking--it was dark. I was tired. Must be NIGHT TIME!! Anyway, I took 2 PM pills and went trotting back to Bed Sweet Bed where the Husband was still sort of sleeping, woke him up to ask what i should do because Dude is my Medical Advisor when I'm at home. At which point he groggily said I could try to throw them up but I shouldn't take an AM pill on top of the others (which I already KNEW). So I did. I went forth and TRIED to throw up. Something I have never done in my life. And of course nothing happened. So I've spent the entire day sort of half asleep. Also chugging water trying to flush it out of my system... which kind of worked but also kind of didn't.

  • You know what's funny? Workplace parties are funny. They start out really crowded with all the people who are really just there for the CAKE and then they gradually dwindle down to the people who actually like each other and are there to gab and laugh and cut up until going back to work. I find myself exasperated by the bull--it was all I could do to keep from looking around and telling people to just take their cake and GO so that the 4 or 5 of us could chat with CEI on her last day.

  • Speaking of CAKE. There was also ice cream--extreme Moose tracks. I made sure to dig out the fudge ripple. You know. For the BABY.

  • I have had about 3 bajillion liters of water today. As I type this I am floating up river.

  • Today is payday and also Friday and I have a lovely weekend in front of me that will involve sleeping and shopping for maternity clothes and also baby stuff and also groceries and maybe some laundry and then dinner at my parents house. I'm told there will be pie so it's bound to be GREAT.

So...what are you all doing this weekend?

I can't believe this weekend is half way gone. So far today I: slept until almost lunch time, ate lunch in my jammies, put the kids down for a nap, HAD to lay down with Alayna because she won't nap without me lately, went grocery shopping (woo-hoo), got Arby's for dinner, made a lasagna for tomorrow, bathed children, put children to bed, updated my blog, checked your blog ( I can't believe Chris has a beard!), and now I am going to watch TV...with my husband...then I will go to bed. Tomorrow I will try to keep my kids in the chapel, teach Primary, return home for Sabbath nappage, then heat and eat my lasagna. Sounds like heaven right? Or something. :)

I think the "farewell party" emails should be labeled "FREE CAKE AND ICE CREAM....oh yeah, btw...such-n-such is leaving"

and as a snippy side note...yet another staff member bites the dust :(
