Today is my last day at work for 3 months. I would try to sound sad for my colleagues, but I would just be lying. And, truthfully, some of them are looking forward to being rid of me.
I have to admit that I was one of those people that got a tad bored during my maternity leave last go round. Regardless of the boredom I did manage to maintain some shreds of dignity by refusing to watch Dr. Phil. This time I was smart and asked LP and the Hoos for DVDs for Mother's Day. I am looking forward to nursing while watching episodes of Weeds, a show I have heard a lot about but never seen (we don't get Showtime) and the entire series of My So-Called Life. I figure those should last me a couple of weeks and individual episodes are easier to watch than movies. Any other suggestions on DVDs I should look into getting? I thought about the second season of Dexter, but I thought perhaps that might be inappropriate.
Other plans include lots of walking, little sleeping and a whole lot of eating up my little Bun while being mobile enough again to really enjoy LP. The whole not-being-able-to-bend-at-the-waist thing sure makes it hard to play with a toddler.
I am really pleased that my kids will not have the same birthday - that was important to me for some reason. I am also hoping not to go into labor in the next 24 hours because LP has her 2-year check up tomorrow and I would just as soon get that taken care of. I am a very practical Virgo, you know. A Virgo with absolutely no control over when this baby pops out.
