Bills on my mindset, I can't deny they're getting high

Thursday, September 22, 2011

So, I've been too exhausted to post lately. But I suppose I should have shared that Verizon came around and transferred me to a Durham store! Yay, because now baby's delivery will be covered by insurance--and we'll be able to pay the bills for a few more months! Not so yay, because 45 hours at 8+ mo.s preggo is.... extremely exhausting, especially in the retail world.

Other tidbits from past few weeks:

1. We went to the beach! Cary agrees that NC beaches are a) awesome and b) for sure warmer than Cali.

2. Our crib finally arrived, and now I'm even more excited to fill it... I'll post pics this weekend (perhaps)

3. My mom, heather and kim hosted a beautiful baby shower for baby girl. It was wonderful. Good variety of friends, delicious food, elegant decorations... and baby got spoiled! We received wonderful and practical! gifts for which I'm sooo grateful. It's overwhelming just getting all the big items, so I'm extremely grateful for help with all the other necessities and just nice-ities.

4. Oh, and wonderful VZW (verizon) is making me go through new hire training again (yeah, I did this for a month last december). Yes, I did switch positions within the company, but let's be real... the only differences between the two positions could have been explained to me in a day. Anyhow, I'm chilling in Greenville, South Carolina. Training was a) more interesting the first time b) more fun in Denver and c) I liked the original peeps better. So, i mostly just try not to look too bored, keep my feet from swelling and focus on not having the baby yet, as I'd really prefer she be a tarheel born baby! Oh, and I'm trying not to gain an extra 10lbs this time around since I'm already packing 25 extra.

5. Last night, I was craving dessert, but being unfamiliar with the area I decide to consult the hotel concierge. I'm hoping for a little gem dessert shop, maybe a cupcake place, and expecting at least the local coldstone--but no, he suggests the gas station just down the street. Then when I make a face, he lights up and says "oh, well there's a McDonald's just 2 miles away!"

Seriously greenville, the best you have to offer is a $1 hot fudge sundae?

I get to spend 3 more weeks in S.C.


6. Everyone seems really concerned about me going in to labor with the stress of traveling and working, etc. I get to come home on the weekends, so I've decided as soon as baby wants to show up... I'm leaving all my weekends free for her to do so. However, next weekend is general conference, and somehow I think I'd have a real hard time paying attention should I go into labor, SOOOooo I'm aiming for the following weekend. Oct. 8th baby--feel free to grace us with your presence. I'll keep the rest of you posted on my attempts to control the uncontrollable :)

BAHAHHA - I can just see your face at the McDonald's suggestion!!!'s so funny. Even if your reaction wasn't this funny, I prefer my version better. The way I see it, you're really bugged, and it's reeeeally funny. :)

Aubs and I were talking the other day about how much we wished we all lived closer for the day your baby comes. I still can't believe you're on the other side of America and think you should have a baby THERE. * sigh *

Love you. :)
