Enter the Dragon

First, thanks for all the well wishes for me and my boob. We're doing much better! I think it will all be back to normal in about a week.

I am unemployed again. I just got the call from the people I've been temping for and they don't need me anymore. Too bad, it was fun going to work with J. The upside is now I will know all the people he talks about when he gets home from the office. Downside, I will have no money and will once again have to stay off the temptations of daytime TLC programming. Though I do miss Stacy and Clinton. I've told J that after the baby is born he should "turn me in" for becoming a frumpy mom so I can get a cool 5K shopping spree in NYC. I just have to be sure not to cry when Stacy throws away my brown hoodie jacket and tattered wicker flip flops.

I plan to use my free time this week to find a prenatal yoga class and birthing class. Also, finally do the research on cloth diapering so I can get my shit in order. Though working made me feel useful, it also made me feel too busy to do much else. And there is so much to do to get ready for this little guy.

Speaking of the little guy, he has transformed from a gurgly floppy swimmer to a kung fu master. His favorite target? My bladder. He's helping reinforce the old wives tale and is sitting low, very low. My bladder was already getting squished and now with this new actvity, time between bathroom visits is alarmingly short. While working I probably went to the bathroom at least 6 times a day. Maybe that's why they don't want me anymore. They realized how much they were paying me while I peed.

I just sent you a couple of dipes. They are size 0 Swaddlebees, but I do think they make a newborn size, too, with a cutout for the umbilical cord. Someone was selling them on my board and I thought you might want to give them a try.

I saw a boppy at target and thought of you.

I have beefs with Stacy and Clinton sometimes. Do you remember the episode with the Notre Dame girl and they threw away ALL her school spirit clothing? I understand that it's not cool to wear college slippers to work at the Sundace Film Festival, but you can't dowse her school spirit like that.

They also never seem to approve of anyone owning ANY workout clothing, instead encouraging them to go to the gym in Diesel sneakerettes and velour pantsuits.

But I do like what they can do with a cammi and a nice fitted jacket.
