Because I can. Because I know my colleagues value my work. Because I’m not sure what else to do. Because I want to save my time off for when baby is actually here. Because despite appearing as though I’ll be giving birth to Hercules, I’m not completely miserable (yes, I have rough days, but all in all, I feel ok).
I’m not really sure what people expect me to say or why they’re so concerned, but I’ve gotten this question too many times to count. Perhaps I look really uncomfortable and unhappy? Not sure.
But if you need me, you can find me at my desk. Still working. Because I can.
On a related note, my work group took me out for a delicious lunch yesterday. Italian! Yum. It was the same restaurant we went to before W was born so it seemed very fitting. They gifted me with several adorable outfits. One is size newborn and I have my doubts as to whether or not Hercules will fit into it. :) I’m grateful for such wonderful colleagues – they make going to work worthwhile. And after experiencing a couple miserable work environments, I appreciate them that much more. Feeling the love. <3 <3
W was very excited about baby’s new clothes when I arrived home. He had to check them out and insisted “Baby, hang!”… meaning he wanted me to head upstairs and hang the new clothes in baby’s room. I sure hope he’s as excited about baby when baby is actually here – but not counting on that.
Naturally all of these are blurry since W is always in motion. :)
