18 weeks, seriously?

It seems like time is starting to fly by now. Gone is the lingering dread that I carried for so long and it's refreshing to have that weight lifted.

I'm still overwhelmed by thinking too far ahead. Planning a shower, starting a registry, it's all too much some days so I just put it off. Probably not the best of ideas but it is what it is.

Work has been a disaster lately. I'm really stressed out here, I feel like I have too much on my plate some days and I'm really concerned that they don't seem to want to talk about me going on leave for 3 months. I'm worried that they'll half ass it and I'll come back to a disaster.

Hubs is about to lose his overtime opportunities so that's been a little stressful. Currently he picks up 4 extra shifts per month and that is almost an extra $1000 that we're putting to the house remodel and other things we need to get done.

We've decided to go see his mother in October. I'm not really looking forward to that because she and I don't really get along but it will be nice to get away for a little bit.

So that's my totally uneventful update. Sorry I suck


  1. Wow! 18 weeks! Goes by so fast. Don't worry about being overwhelmed with all that you have to do. I think most of us are. What helped me was making a list with a timeline. It made me realize that I was stressing over the small stuffs. Also delegate when you can. And for the work situation, I get it. I keep telling my husband that I won't have a job to go back to. I go away for a few days and everything falls apart. I have a hard time believing my department will survive with me being gone for a year. Oh well. It will give me the excuse I need to move on.

    1. Gosh, I wouldn't have anything to come back to if I got a year.. I'm so jealous!! I'll only be gone for 12 weeks (stupid US maternity leave).

      Lists are good. I should start with lists.

    2. Hey Holly! Was thinking about you. I hope all is well.
