Picture! Zoom zoom zoom

Friday, August 16, 2019

Babe seems to be doing well at the new daycare. She's getting him to eat his full bottle, which the other daycare only did once, and she said he's cooing and making other sounds. My husband swears he said "mommy" this morning, but I think that's just because he hates dealing with a crying baby LOL. She sends us pictures around lunchtime every day to update us on how his day is going, and yesterday sent us my new desktop background:

I got a first interview for the job I applied for, and it will be done via Zoom. I found out my work has Zoom installed on all the computers and at first thought I could just do it that way but my husband pointed out that doing the interview with my work software might not be a good idea. I don't know if they track usage or anything like that, and if they do, a before work hours meeting might raise flags. So we're thinking I'll download the software onto my laptop and take the meeting at the Starbucks around the corner. It means I'll be a few minutes late to work (it's about a 7 minute walk) but my boss has always said if we're not later than her we're not late, so I should be fine being ~10 minutes late once. Especially if I arrive to work with pastries!

Aunt Flow has come to town for the first time in a year, and it has given me the most INTENSE chocolate cravings. I'm bloated and feel gross, and definitely did not miss this part of non-pregnant life. I am eyeing the chocolate jar on my desk like a shark. I have tried sticking to dark chocolate since it is healthier but I basically want to down the entire jar so the few pieces I've allowed myself this week are just not cutting it. I am going to try to be really good today so I have a nice large bank of calories for dinner, that way I might convince my husband to swing by Dairy Queen for a blizzard with chocolate in it. They have some limited edition ones that sound mighty tasty, or I could go classic with M&M.

    I have read that when "Aunt Flo" visits, caffeine is a double edged sword--it can aid in relieving cramps but also causes bloating! I am 53 and still menstruating, it's supposed to be OVER by the time I am 55 and I can't wait!! Good luck getting the new job and the new day care sounds MARVELOUS!

    Your mind must feel more at ease now that your son is settling in to his new daycare. It's nice to hear. Best of luck with the job interview!

    How do I change? If I feel depressed I will sing. If I feel sad I will laugh. If I feel ill I will double my labor. If I feel fear I will plunge ahead. If I feel inferior I will wear new garments. If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice. If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come. If I feel incompetent I will think of past success. If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals. Today I will be the master of my emotions.
