I know a lot of people are all excited about the election, I know already who I plan to vote for, but I am not a die hard political junkie by far. But I work in a medical setting and have noticed a few of my coworkers wearing political buttons for their favorite candidate. My first thought is they shouldn’t do that, but then I wonder if I am being too picky about it. They have the right to be excited about their candidate I guess, as long as they are not passing out flyers or pushing their views on the patients, but I still find it odd for some reason. I might be over reacting though, and maybe deep down my problem is really the candidate they are supporting, ‘cause I am not voting for who they are excited about.
My friend emailed me back and she expressed disappointment that I am not going but was fine with it over all. But get this, she has a work conference in Williamsburg in November and wants me to stay at the same hotel and hang out with her. Umm hello.. I live like super close to Williamsburg, why would I get a hotel just to hang out, and how the heck am I supposed to do that with a newborn and two kids? I enjoy getting away for girl trips such as scrapbooking, but my maternity leave is holy to me. I want to spend it with my kids. A moms day out will be needed I am sure, but a few hours for shopping and pedicures will be all I desire. I have not talked about it on here, but this friend has more issues then People Magazine, and I had cut off our friendship a while back as the drama got on my nerves when I was pregnant with Laura. It involved me calling Child Protective Services on her, (LONG STORY but totally deserved). Anyways, I am ready to just drop the friendship altogether. I know that sounds harsh, but if you knew the whole story and situation you would want do the same thing. I probably would have never picked up the friendship again, but I don’t exactly have that many close female friends, and Dave encouraged me also to be nice to her, so I can blame him as well =)
I had been wanting to schedule the baby’s birth on September 12th rather then the 19th as I thought it was one of my sisters b-days, turns out the 19th is not her bday lol, so I have been stressing for no reason on that one. At my next appointment the doc and I will set the date for the c-section, so I could care less what date we go with. The 19th kinda appeals to me now, as that means I wouldn’t be going back to work until late December, and then Christmas would here, so I would be able to stay home again for a few days.
Another thing on my mind is since the baby will born on a Friday, and that is the day Laura has preschool, do I have her stay home from school, or should she go on in anyways? She will just be starting school for the first time, and its only for a couple of hours. I guess since it will all be new to her I should make sure she still goes, so she gets in a routine.
