More changes afoot...

So, I have been training my replacement here at work the last two weeks. I think that she will be a really good fit once I can stop making her head spin every day. There is a lot to learn and she is basically starting from ground zero with all of it. I will be here with her up until I have the baby which is looking like another 4 to 8 weeks (if all goes well). Then, once I have the baby thats it... I am finished working completely. I am really looking forward to having this time with the wee one. Who knows if I will feel the same way once I get her home and actually have to take care of her 24/7? It freaks me out, really when I think about it.

I never thought that I would be the type that can only think and talk about having a kid once I got pregnant. But, look at me.. the last three posts that I have done have had something to do with my being pregnant. I just hope that I don't turn into the type that can only talk about their kid once it is born. Like every other interest that I once had is non-existent now. I really want my personality to stay in tact. Maybe if I draw attention to the fact that it bothers me when people leave their personalities at the nursery door then I won't be that way. I have seen it happen. There are people that survive and keep a sense of humor and even... a spark of who they were before they had a kid. I understand that having kids changes you. But, it doesn't have to change the core of you. Unless you want it to. I am done now... you can go back to your regularly scheduled program.

Pictures, Pictures, Pictures...

There are some of pictures that I have said I would post but haven't. So, I am posting them today. These pictures cover Christmas and such... So, Enjoy!

Sweeny What?!?

I just read this today on MSN.


Don't get me wrong, I love Johnny Depp. I think he is a brilliant actor, but c'mon! Tim Burton is going to slaughter this fantastic play if he has these two play the leading roles! I don't think that they won't be able to come close to Len Cariou and Angela Landsbury's performances. Or even Patti LuPone or Michael Cerveris that are performing it on Broadway right now. It is a shame that Tim Burton thinks that he can take this on. I hope that I am not completely disappointed.

I feel the NEED...

I had a dream last night that I made a blanket for the baby. It was pink, green and yellow. Well, it just so happens that I have pink, green and yellow flannel at my house so I could indeed make a blanket. I think I am going to start on one tonight. Does this mean that I am officially nesting?

UPDATE: I finished the rag quilt. Here is a picture of it. I am working on another quilt right now, but don't know exactly when it will be finished. If I finish it before she is born than I will post a picture of it as well.

Happy New Year!

Its a new year and I have been thinking the last couple of weeks about how my life is changing in this new year. I am going to be someones Mommy, wow! That is HUGE!!! Mike and I went and bought a car seat on Saturday, can you believe it? A CAR SEAT!!! It was our first baby purchase. My mom called me on Saturday morning and said that she was at Big Lots and she saw that they had a couple of Eddie Bauer 3-in-1 car seats there for $100.00So, we went over there and bought this car seat. It looks just like the one above. I looked at Babies-R-Us online and they had the very same car seat for $180.00. I can't believe what a racket the baby market is. Stuff costs so freaking much its insane. We also decided to go over to Burlington Coat Factory and discovered that place is the Baby Mecca! They have a "Baby Depot" there. They have cribs, clothes, bedding, strollers, car seats, rockers... anything you can imagine there. Looking at all that stuff made me start to get excited about this little one coming. Then Mike and I made "the list" of what we need to accomplish before she gets here. It's kind of a long list and then we both realized that we only have 6 weekends left before we are in the danger zone. So, we have much to take care of within the next several weeks. I can't believe that this is all happening. I am freaking out a bit, but then I think... I'm not the first person to have had a baby, people do this every day. Don't sweat it.

We'll see how long that lasts.
