Don’t pay her.
Ba dum dum.
Ever since I’ve been pregnant and all talk turned to hormones I’ve had this goofy joke running through my head. I can’t say the word without telling myself the joke. It’s almost as annoying as the effects of said hormones. Which, incidentally, are KICKING MY ASS this week.
Yes, it’s true, I’ve been working nonstop. I’ve had a couple of nights of not a lot of sleep. These may in fact have added to the ridiculous crying jags, but I prefer to blame the hormones, and the fact that my husband left on a trip yesterday. I swear on the day that embryo attached itself, I have become more and more attached to my husband. Usually it’s no big deal if he goes away – I take off myself to see my sister and the kids or a friend or whatever. But this trip – this trip it was all I could do not to BEG him not to go. I know he sees it as a last trip on his own (which I’ve told him isn’t the case) and he’s been so stressed at work lately a part of me is glad to see him go – but I miss him so much it’s making me cry. All the time. So I blame the hormones. (See, I told myself the joke again.)
There are good things on the horizon though. Like today is the LAST DAY of working like a maniac. If I can get all the things I need to get done DONE today, then I’m just about done for the season. Sure, there are always holiday cards to bang out, but they aren’t nearly as time consuming as processing jobs. All of my deadlines are just about met and things should be good! Clients are happy. I’m tired. Another successful year. (This one doubly successful compared to last year! Grow business grow!)
Tomorrow I head out to my sister’s for some downtime with the kids. I come back the same day as my love and then it’s time to hunker down for THE kid. A new year is just around the corner and I can’t wait!
