I am so nervous about this Wednesday. I need to really calm down. I’ve never known the exact date of delivery before and I just am climbing out of my skin. I haven’t really talked to family & friends either in a few days which makes it a bit harder. I know this is such a busy time of year for everyone and I understand.

Today is B’s last day to work on a Saturday!! We are going to party!! It has been great financially to have him do this for the past 1 1/2 years but it kind of gets old to have to have him gone all the time, too. It will be nice when he opens his practice this summer. I’m sure there will be new kinds of stresses. He is going to put me to work as soon as I have the baby. There is a lot to be done that he won’t be able to do working fulltime. He says it’s a “paid” position. I just have to laugh at that. I don’t need to be paid to help out my husband. Although, there is this cool scrapbooking machine called the “Cricut” that I have been eyeing now.

I’d better get off my duff and get my chores done today. I am stuck at home but I am going to make the best of it. I want to play with the kids, get my laundry done, and scrapbook. In any order!!

Spread the love

    Hey if it’s something he can afford to pay you a little bit, go ahead and do that. If it is affordable for the practice to pay you a little bit, but not to hire someone else then you should definitly get paid for your work. 🙂 Just stash it away for your stamping and scrappin stuff. 🙂

    Message board dynamics can change over time and I’ve found myself not wanting to post on boards that I used to post on regularly too… I hope that you find the right balance for you and the right places to connect with others. 🙂

    Definitely get paid if you are working. It is good for you, for your taxes, and for your retirement planning. I’m so happy that your baby is almost here. I totally agreed with you on the recent post uproar. I’ve had similar issues in the past. No need to provide too much detail! Keep posting here so we know what’s what with you and the baby.

    December 6th is Santa Claus day in Europe. Children put a boot outside by the back door and if they’ve been good, St. Nicholas (Santa Claus) comes and fills it with goodies. If they’ve been bad, he fills it with coal. It’s equivalent to the American tradition of stockings, I think. You’ll be getting the best goodie ever for Santa Claus day this year!
