Ooo Bridget I am so excited for you.
Can I just say that I think we set a record this week...FOUR times in 7 days!
Don't think it's been that much in one week since college when we had a lot of time on our hands, were like 12 years younger and well the relationship was still in the new phase.
God that is a lot of work to try to find enough time, get in the mood, and still have time for dinner! Weekends are usually fine but during the week we usually only have like two hours together.
At one point during the past year or two we were talking with his mom and Dh said well I've been writing that stork and so far nothing. His mom was like, um son think maybe we need to have a talk because the stork isn't going to work....
We know so much more than we care to about MIL's sex life or lately lack thereof. Well we got her back because she called a few days ago and we didn't answer so when he called her back, he told her that we didn't answer (she knew we were likely home)...because we were "busy".
I'm really getting excited for you Bridget. You're so close!!
I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for being here for me, especially when Jesi was missing. I'm really a private person and don't usually share my worries. I didn't call anyone irl about Jess until after 10:00 am the next day and that was because I feared my father hearing about it on the news or something. I'm not sure why that is...but that's how I am. I suffer in silence usually and it was such a relief to me to have you all to run to.
im so stressed at home ladies, im fine all day and i go home and instantly im stressed..i get chest pains, have a hard time breathing, anxiety...i know its all escalated due to pregnancy because im normally not like this and other factors that are getting to me..its like one things goes on and i get a little bothered, than another thing and im even more irritated..and than by 8:00pm im so stressed and feel awful and short withthe kids and ugh..im seriously considering trying staying at my parents for a few weeks see if its actually HOME thats causeing it..or possible getting a hotel that i can retn by the week/month to see if HOME is the cause makes me sad to think that home is the cause of stress for me..i usualy love going home..but right nwo its just not my happy place..
i dont knwo what to do..matt keeps asking is it him, the dogs, what is it and honestly YES its all of those things and more.. i dont look forward to being home and being a ****ty mom because of the anxiety and sress thats coming along with going home...
I'm so sorry that you're so stressed, Sarah...is it just the hussle and bussle of home life that is stressing you out? Could you go on a little break like a spa weekend or just you and your husband could go somewhere while your parents or someone watches the kids? I think Chrissy is right, though, you should talk to the doctor about it.
I'm so sorry to hear that, sarah. You're a good person to be concerned for your family even with all this stuff going on. You'll get to the bottom of it, I know you will.
Work has been busy today and it's about to get busier. By law, we have to do identification scans on all the computers. It's a pita getting the faculty to comply, and this year we're asking them to also bring their home (Cornell owned) machines in. They're going to kick and scream!
As if that isn't bad enough, but once it's scanned and if we find data, they have to report to us that it's been cleaned up and we're expected to do a 2nd scan to verify. All by May 1st. As well as doing our normal duties.
Sarah, I'm so sorry you are feeling that way. I hope you find an answer.
I confess my replacement came in today and spent the day shadowing me. I really, really like her - and what's more, she has already worked with four of my most challenging clients already in a private clinic here in town. Including the one that I was afraid might send her running screaming away from us. And when she saw him collapse in tears in the teacher's arms, she made a point of telling the teacher she had had that experience with him also.
I swear - with everything that fell into place for me to take this new job and now my replacement knows my kids already and we have the EXACT same philosophy. I couldn't have picked a better replacement if I had actually picked her out.
I joked with the teachers who share my office that I was afraid they would like her better than me! The promised they would still miss me.

just checking in to see if Bridget had her baby! Thinking of you this weekend!!
I started school, and am feeling a little crazy. For as easy as I thought this semester was going to be I am worried I underestimated it...
and I think I screwed up my taxes the other day because I didn't know I would be getting a 1099 from the college.........
Chrissy, I'm glad you feel safe coming here with your worries. I have felt the same often in my struggles with my mom dying and with my relationship with dbf.
Gwenn, Yay! I'm so glad your replacement is so perfect. Now you won't have to worry about your students. It's obvious you care about them immensely.
Sarah, I'm really sorry you're having a hard time. I hope you can find what you need to be content.
Ash! Thanks for thinking of me. I am NOT in labor. But I'm feeling good so thankful for that.
Tonight I went to this Laotian restaurant with my dad and brother. The waitress was an older woman who didn't speak english very clearly and she was so sweet, making a big deal about my big belly, asking a lot of questions and making really cute exclamations. Then she started calling me brother "daddy" assuming he was my husband and it was really cracking us up. Finally I just let her know he was my brother and she was all surprised and apologetic and then looked at my dad like . OMG we were dying at the hilarious awkwardness of the whole situation and she was really embarrassed. The place was really small so you could see the kitchen from your table and the cooks sent out a delicious mango/sweet rice dessert "for the baby"!
How sweet is that?
We had a fun night. I'm sad I'm likely going to have to take a little hiatus from my thursday night dinners until the baby is old enough to travel with me. I love my nights with those two guys. They are so refreshing to me. No one loves me quite like my dad and brother love me.

Bridget, that is so sweet. I always get a warm fuzzy feeling when you talk about your nights with your dad and brother.

Just back from play school with the kids. There was a woman there this time that recognised me from a baby massage class over 2 years ago but I didn't recognise her! The only thing I remembered about the class was that it was nearly all boys so I asked how her son was. Turns out she had the only girl in the class! So, I felt like a right jerk! I got broken off from our conversation so didn't get to apologise. I hope she's there next week so I can talk to her so she doesn't think poorly of me.
Why do I try to debate with conservatives? One just accused me of getting all my information from MoveOn.org and said I should actually do research before forming an opinion. I had to leave that discussion...what an insulting thing to say.
The hose I need to fill my birthing tub is only sold at this one store in the town my dad works and he picked it up for me. I FORGOT to get it from him last night!!!!
He says he'll drive it to me on monday so if I have the baby this weekend, I guess we skip the birthing tub. Ah, well.
I have the day off today! The one family that was supposed to come just texted me and said they're going to grandmas today. I love an unexpected free day.
