The one where I pitch a hissyfit. 2

The one where I pitch a hissyfit.

There is some stuff I have to do at work that needs to be done last year, it is so urgent. This means I went to nurse NikkiZ for the last time and instead of going home with her, like I usually do, I had to take her to MrZ’s office so he could take her home. This makes me very angry and jealous and makes me want to yell “It’s not fair!” and stomp up and down while yanking at my pigtails. I’m not wearing pigtails. I like my job, it’s fun. And I get to see NikkiZ every...

I used to care, I think. 6

I used to care, I think.

There was a time, when, if I got to my office in the morning and realized I never switched my brown suede Birkenstocks out for my black dress shoes before I left the house, I would have gone home IMMEDIATELY. As it is, I am currently wearing a cream cable sweater with charcoal slacks and brown suede clogs. And I couldn’t give two flying shits. (Where, exactly, did the “flying shit” phrase, and it’s millions of variations, originate?) If I make it into work without spit-up on any of my clothing? I feel pretty damn accomplished. If my boobs haven’t...

I’m a freak show 9

I’m a freak show

NikkiZ has woken up every three hours the past 4-6 days or so. She wakes up fidgeting, and I believe realizes she’s hungry – I don’t think the hunger could wake her up since it didnt the month before. It’s been stressing me out a bit because it makes me so damn tired, but I’ll deal, right? Little did I know that when she DID sleep through the night, only waking up for one feeding like usual, I would wake up with one GIANT boob that was leaking through every shirt and nursing pad in site. (I only nurse one...

Guilty thief. 11

Guilty thief.

Deb did this at her site, and of course, I’m stealing it for my own. I’m a thief like that. Five of my guilty pleasures: (1) The O.C. – That show is dumb on so many levels, but I can. not. stop. watching. it. I have no idea what draws me to it every week because the SMART part of my brain (it’s a small part, I know) admits the show is stupid. But, I just can’t help it. (2) E! TV – When there’s nothing on my TiVo for me to watch (rarely, but it happens) I immediately check...

My peeps. 5

My peeps.

I have this thing, about adults. More often than not, when I’m with more than one other adult, I feel incredibly out of place. I feel that part of it is because I still don’t feel like an adult myself (yes, I know, I’m 30, embrace it already) but the other part is I’m really self conscious that I’ll say or do something incredibly moronic. Like exclaim, “New Orleans is a VERY large state, you know.” (Don’t ask.) I enjoy chatting with NikkiZ’s teachers when I go to nurse her, but today? There were several other women in there –...
