I just wanted to apologize for the lack of blogging going on here. I've wanted to write but I've been tired and out of it. The only thing that comes to mind is how awful I feel most of the time.
I some how developed a cold. In the summer. In ARIZONA. In Phoenix, nonetheless. Don't ask me how because I'm not sure. But I'm blaming my cat. Now Hubs is catching it. (And he's a bigger whiner than I am.)
BUT something is coming soon here. I promise! I just have to figure out what!
I'm open to ideas.
I hope everything is going well for all of you. I'll be back soon!
- Saturday we went to my parents house to see my nephew, Grayson, since my mom was babysitting him. When we got there though he was napping again. So we watched television for about an hour or so.
- It was time for Grayson to get up since he hadn't even had lunch yet. So my mom fed him some lunch. It took him awhile to get used to me since it had been about a month since he last saw me. But he finally did. I got lots of smiles out of him which were incredibly adorable.
- After lunch, my mom decided we should take Grayson swimming. I'll have my mom email the pictures I took of him on her camera. Her camera died before she could get a shot of me holding him. He held onto my the entire time we were swimming. I would give him to my dad and he would want to come right back to me. Super cute!
- On Sunday I woke up and made cookies! I had been craving them since Thursday night.
Last night, right as Hubs and I were getting ready to go to bed we heard sirens. A lot of them. And our dogs were in the backyard barking up a storm. At first we just heard Police sirens so that didn't make me feel so safe. So Hubs went into the bedroom to grab his gun and put on some flip flops on so he could take a look out back. I put some flip flops on too, so I could tag along.
A friend/coworker of mine is about to tell our human resources manager and boss that she's pregnant. I'm very happy for her, but I'm not looking forward to the comments I'll be getting once more people find out about it.
This is the second baby she's had while working here. After her, there was another girl who had a baby. Then another girl had a baby. I am now the only younger married person at our work who hasn't had a baby or isn't pregnant.
During all three pregnancies I was asked a lot of questions and received tons of comments about when I'd be having one or trying for one.
"Now it's your turn!" "When are you going to have a baby?" You name it, they probably asked me. I'm not looking forward to it this time around, since we're actually trying.
I've been thinking about this for a few weeks. When these people start asking me questions or making comments how do I want to answer? Snarky? Vauge? Completely ignore them? Tell them it's none of their concern? Tell them that's rude to ask/say since they don't know my situation? (Just thought of that one this weekend.) I haven't decided yet. I spoke with Hubs about this and obviously he thinks I'm silly, but I can't help it.
I'm sure my reaction to any question will depend on the mood (or time of the month) I'm in. I'm really leaning towards snarky, because then maybe they won't bug me again.
I'm sure some of you have been in this situation. What did you do?
