Friday Night Leftovers

•I bought a couple of maternity/nursing tops from Baby Steals the other day. I love them! The problem, one has a waistband that I can't get over my shoulders/chest. So what a waste! I can't return or exchange it, either. I'm going to see if I can cut the band or something.
•I bought these anti-stress/calming collars for the cats awhile back. I was planning on putting them on when the baby got here, but Sean put them on this morning because they have been CRAZY! Gretchen got hers half off and stuck around her mouth, and ended up cutting herself. Blood was everywhere! Mortimer started to do the same thing shortly afterwards. My point is: don't buy anything like that. It is a waste of money and will make a bloody mess!
•I stopped by the grocery store today after PT. There is a lady there who is so sweet, and today she asked if she could rub my belly. I obliged. When I finished waddling around the store, I got in a long line, as the others were closed. She waved me over and opened up a lane just for me! And then insisted upon emptying my cart onto the belt AND having someone push the cart out to the car and loading the groceries! Seriously what an angel!
•Have you ever not gone to a restaurant/fast food/other place of business just because they have words spelled wrong on a sign? I didn't think I would, but I refuse to go to the Burger King in our town because they repeatedly spell breakfast as breakfest! Do I get a party with my biscuit?
•I had to take a nap when I got home from the store/PT. I figured I had about an hour before Sean left for work. Well he let me sleep almost two hours before he rudely woke me up saying he was going to be late, blah, blah, blah. Umm, why did you let me sleep that long then? I told him to wake me up!
•And speaking of naps, my schedule is so messed up. I can't get to sleep until about 2am, and am up every 2-3 hours to use the bathroom. So it is no wonder that I need a nap! I just wish I could go to bed at a more reasonable time!
•Did you hear that breast pumps and supplies are now tax deductible? Here
•I'm almost done with the Twilight series (again). I ordered the Left Behind series, so hopefully that gets here soon. I'll go nuts if I have to go too long without a book!
•To answer Carrie's question from last week; Sean will only be working 12 hour shifts and will be home every night (or day). He just won't have his own set route for awhile, and can get called into work 8 hours after leaving. So that will be a bit of a challenge. He will get his vacation before training, which starts March 14, but the HR lady told him they could postpone that a week or two, as that is my first due date. If he can't for some reason, then he could take two or three days off for the birth and then go back without getting into trouble (but not during training).

I love, love, love that part about being really brings the kindness out in people. Well, in some people anyway!

Enjoy your weekend!

Good to know about the breast pump tax deduction...for next year for us since I bought ours last month.

I hear you about naps...not sleeping is becoming somewhat the norm for me. Peeing Q2 hours and then not falling asleep well- naps are necessary!

I hope you feel better after PT.

I had a cat get her mouth caught on a collar she was wearing once. She started choking so I helped her get it off. She was fine, I still have the scars on my wrist from her scratching the heck out of me! I haven't put a collar on one of my cats since. lol.

How exciting that you get a chance to see your little one next week! See? There is a bonus to having a big baby. :-)

Thanks for stopping by my blog, too!

I had no idea that pumps could be deducted now. Who knew?
And, apparently the misspellings at Burger Kings are an epidemic because they misspell words all the time at ours.

Why thank you for answering my nosy question. You'll have a lot of adjustments on your hands at once, I hate when it all has to happen at once.

The lady was just showing you her appreciation for letting her rub her belly. It's the simple things that mean the most.
