Just playing the waiting game

It's been a few weeks since my last update. I have an excuse!


June 10th was my last day at work. I didn't quit; I'm just taking an extended maternity leave. We hired one of my best friends to work part time while I was off birthing and raising a baby. She started in March(? I think). At my job we have a full time person (me) and a part time person (cookie monster). We barely had enough work to do with just the two of us there (look at my blog name - I play online at work!) so with the three of us there, there wasn't much for me to do. I was training C.M. to take my over my job and be the full time person and my friend was taking over her job. So basically I wasn't doing much, other then supervising. It got really boring. They both caught on very quickly and after a while I wasn't sure what I was doing there anymore. I started leaving work early (with permission of course) then started planning my last day.

I've had a job (sometimes 2 or 3) since I graduated from High School. So for the past 13 years I've been working pretty much nonstop and now I'm home by myself ALL DAY LONG. It's a boring life. I've made list of things that need to be done around the house. Things that I normally don't get to because I'm exhausted by the time I get home from work. Only to find out being 8 1/2 months pregnant is exhausting too. Bending over is hard, after cleaning a little bit I have to sit and rest, plus I need my afternoon nap! I can't leave the house because if I do I spend money and with 1 less income that's not really a good thing. So I'm pretty much stuck at home for the time being. The only time I leave is when we need grocerys or when the husband is home.

So that is my excuse for my lack of posting. I wish I had exciting news like our baby is going to make his grand entrance anytime now. But who knows when that will happen. Our due date is July 7th but the doctor will let me go over a week at the most. He even said we should set up a appointment to have me induced on the 14th. I hope he's doing that as a precaution to reserve the space and not because he thinks I'll actually need it. I love being pregnant but I'm so ready for the baby to be here in my arms.

I hope others are having a more exciting summer then I am so far. What are you up to? Any trips, fun outings anything? Please my only outlet to the world is through blogs now (and my cell phone) so keep me updated on what you all are doing. I need to live vicarously through others now.

We miss you! (Well, I do and I'm the only one that really matters!) I know, staying at home can get so monotonous. Only a couple of more weeks, though. Hopefully!

I'll give you a call. I want to have lunch one day next week before I head out of town.
