Why It's Not Cool to Be 8-Months Pregnant and Stop Blogging

So apparently? I've freaked a few of you out. Because I've been kind of missing for a week or so.

And I really, really apologize sincerely, because I've read blogs where people disappeared at inopportune times and I worried that they were dead or something bad had happened, or I wondered if they'd had the baby and when I'd get to find out.

Somehow, I've become one of those people. And I apologize for that, my faithful readers. I've been on maternity leave for two days now. You'd think I'd have nothing better to do than write blog posts. But somehow, life has been even more hectic than at work.

Which, by the way, I'm sitting in my cube right now as we speak. I really know how to re-define maternity leave, don't I? But see, I had two hours to kill in between dropping off Little Man and a lunch appoinment and work was the most convenient place to go. So I'm checking emails and working to wrap up my two projects that I refuse to let go off.

And I wonder why my VP told me on Monday when I mentioned to him that I'd be swinging by the office fo an hour on Friday in between dropping off Little Man at school and my doctor's appointment that I seriously need a hobby.

Which, maybe I do. But I figure in 12 days (oh dear God... Twelve freaking days, how did this HAPPEN???) I guess I will have a hobby.

So in conclusion, everything is good. My belly's got its own zip code, but I've still got the energy of a toddler hyped up on caffeine and sugar. The baby is still growing safely inside my tummy. Little Man has not had to wear anymore pink shirts, although he is convinced that once upon a time, he was a brown baby, not a white one. Because he's decided brown babies are cuter.

I will post more if not tomorrow, than over the weekend.

Life will slow down enough for me to become a good little blogger again.

Hopefully you'll be here when I do that.

Love,

Catwoman.

Enjoy your leave! Doesn't that mean you shouldn't be at work? Look forward to the wonderful post of the coming weeks!

If it weren't for Plurk, I would have seriously been up in your grill wondering what is going on. Quit being an overachiever who goes to work and start enjoying the company of your good friends online, dammit!

Rachel said...

We might be here and we might not. You just keep that in mind when you think "nah, I don't feel like blogging today"!

Nina Diane said...

jp said...

Susan said...

Thank you for the reassurance that you're okay! I, too, thought you had gone and dominoed. Glad you're back and glad you're feeling good!

random_mommy said...

I was wondering where you were... I have sucked at commenting lately, so we can be bad bloggers together!

I emailed you a name. Did you laugh at it?

You need to learn how to be a slacker - i can totally teach you!

Take it easy for the next 12 days (how exciting!!) and do something for you, because your hobby? He's a comin!!

Sandi said...

Had the same busy-ness happen when I went on leave too. Take your time. We're here.

HM said...

Have you seen that Home Depot commercial where the chic fixes the light and then notices all the things wrong with her house now that she can see them. I can imagine not working gives you more time to see all the things to do!! Enjoy these last 12 days!

Kathryn said...

Glad to hear you are not dead in a ditch somewhere. Really glad.
Whew! :)

Kellie said...

It pays to have stalkers like moi who e-mail you and demand to know what in the HELL is going on ;)

You DID NOT go to work - you uber fruitcake. Let the work go. The no-named baby is coming.

My letters Tesxa!

beach mama said...

Good to hear you are well. I can't believe you have 12 DAYS! That went fast!

And I was MIA for a bit too...it happens when you are preparing for a huge change in life. And a second son...HUGE change!

CPA Mom said...

oh, I'll be here, waiting for pictures of the BAY-BEE!!! Oh, and to see how you are doing, of course.

I can't believe you went back to work. I could NOT leave my job fast enough.

Marmarbug said...

Okay go home. Leave work. You are going to givebirth in your cube. That could be messy.
And if your work is like mine? We have crappy paper towels so no one will be able to clean your mess up!

Julie said...

Ummm, wouldn't a coffee shop or better yet a DONUT SHOP have been just as convenient as stopping in at work!? : ) Go plant your prego ass on the couch and enjoy some downtime!

David said...

We're here....but....wanting to know...lol..

Poltzie said...

Glad to know everything is ok! 12 days, so exciting. Can't wait to hear all about the labour (I'm a bit odd that way).

Trannyhead said...
