Good News!

…..No…..I didn't have the baby yet, however I did get another job. After 4 years of hell, I am finally leaving the grasp of Tech Support. My new title will be "Business Analyst". I am getting a pay increase and moving to another floor. I won't start the job until after I get back from maternity leave, but at least I have something to look forward to when I get back. My new boss is very nice. I haven't met any of the other people in my department yet, but supposedly I will be meeting with them today. Then once my current boss gets back from training on Friday I will start to go down and train with the people in my new department.

As far as the baby front is concerned…nothing yet. I went to the doctor on Monday and they had check to see if I dilated at all, and I'm not. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. It's going to be a long 2 weeks (hell…maybe even 4 if I go over my due date). The good news now is I'm officially 37 weeks and the baby is full term…which means I can really go at any time and the baby will be fine. I'm just hanging in there, tired as ever. I sleep maybe about 3-4 good solid hours a night anymore. The other time is spent tossing and turning — which is very hard work I might add, peeing, sweating, or just wide awake. I would kill for a sleep without having to wake up at least 15 times in one night.

We got our bonuses today. Wooo! I am rich. Well I was rich and then I ordered my last piece of baby furniture. Now I'm back to the same pay as I would have made if I didn't get my bonus. The chest of drawers sucked up my entire bonus. Blah.

This weekend my Mom and I are going to get the mattress for the crib. Then she is going to help me setup the crib w/ the bumper pads, crib ruffle and etc. It should be interesting. Rich still has about 15 thousand items to put together before the living room is emptied out. I want to actually put up my Xmas tree, but I can't until the stuff is moved out of the living room. Speaking of Xmas trees…why is everyone rushing the Xmas season all of the sudden. I haven't even had a chance to digest my turkey from Thanksgiving yet! On November 26th is when I will start to worry about Xmas cards, Xmas Trees, Shopping and listening to Carols. NOT A SECOND BEFORE! Sometimes I hate corporate America. Gotta run now. Let your happiness shine through. I know I am today.
