More joys...

Today, I realized the following joys of working from home all afternoon:
  • When I was craving chocolate, I just walked into the kitchen and whipped up a batch of brownies. Mmmmmmm. Warm brownies.
  • When I felt the boys kicking, I could lift up my shirt and watch my belly. Pretty much never going to happen in the office!
Returned two unwanted, yet generous Christmas gifts today, so we were able to purchase one of the two needed bookcases for the nursery and it only cost us like $5 for tax.
Can I just say how much I love returning Christmas gifts and actually getting things I want or need? My mom was the major contributor to this gift, so I called to confess and share my enthusiasm. She made me feel better by telling me my younger brother returned his gift and bought a new game for his Wii. Um, at least I feel responsible, if not judgemental for my choice ;-)

My boss, who is going to be gone the rest of this week to a conference in San Diego called me a dirtbag on the phone this afternoon and then giggled and snickered in my ear for like 5 minutes straight. Which is only funny if you've read this. I think she's a little excited to get away.

Brownies.. yummy! So glad you were able to exchange your gifts for something you actually wanted!

Oh I like brownies. And book cases. Ha, my belly is moving as I type this.

I am torn. I know inductions can lead to harder more painful labor and that doesn't sound like fun. I just worry about not being awake for a c-section if I wind up needing one. DH wants me to be induced, there is less of a chance of hemorrhage that way. I want to hear what the midwives say.

Insurance company did agree, the company will be here later this week to teach and set me up :)

I hope you are feeling well, and so are the boys!
