So much to do in a week

Posted on

Sorry for being MIA–I was in the midst of quitting my job, packing up, and getting all of my files in order in a week (!!!) When I quit on Monday, I let my boss know that I would like Friday (yesterday) to be my last day, but I was open to staying through next week as well if she really needed me to–I just didn’t want to. Fuck the obligatory 2 weeks notice. I wanted out. This may sound like I was not being a “team player”, but the truth is, I have bent over backwards in so many ways for my boss over the years I’ve been there, the last thing I wanted to do was work for her until the very day I had to up and start a brand new job on the 21st. Truth is, I was mentally checked out of my job for months before I quit, and it’s not the type of job that I have to hire and train a replacement, so really all I had to do was get all of my files together to hand off. She agreed to let Friday be my last day, and continued to be effusive about how much she’d miss me (really? Is that why you hired someone above me without even giving me the opportunity to go after the job?) I think what she will really miss is someone who did all of her Powerpoints for her. Note to self: I will NOT be a pushover in my next job.

Giving one week notice was the BEST DECISION EVER.

I walked out of the office yesterday feeling like the “Andy Dufrene crawled through 3 miles of shit” Shawshank Redemption scene. If you haven’t seen that movie, it’s on about 76 times a day on basic cable. Watch it. Learn it. Love it.

So what’s a girl to do with a full week off before she starts a kick ass new job? For starters, I plan to exercise at least 5 or 6 of these days. I ordered the obligatory Summer Saunders pregnancy workout DVD. I looked at my ass in the mirror the other day, and realized that it had turned into some sort of pasty white Bisquik pancake in the 12 weeks I’ve been pregnant. From what I hear, the perky Summer has an ass workout that will make me cry butt tears of pain and joy. I like this thought. I also bought a prenatal yoga DVD thanks to Seagull’s recommendation. Somehow, a nerve in my back has been pinched the pastΒ  or 4 weeks which has caused an occasional shooting pain to radiate down my right back side and butt cheek as well. I’m hoping the yoga will help with this.

Second up: I’m going to make some of the FABULOUS recipes I’ve been seeing you all post on your blogs. You all make me yearn to be more of a happy homemaker. Can you all do me a favor and keep positing these recipes? πŸ™‚

In the mix will also be a haircut, dental appointment (which I’m going to RELISH because I can finally tell my “father of four dress my kids identically for family photos which I plaster all over my office” dentist that I can’t have X Rays this time because I’m pregnant, beeyotch!), and a hunt for cute clothes that will hide my growing belly for at least a couple more months so I don’t freak my new job out too bad. They know I’m pregnant, but I don’t want to over emphasize it the first couple of months there, as I already feel slightly guilty I will be going on mat leave in July.

Aside from that, we had our big 12 week scan on Thursday. I saw Bagel freakin MOVE for the first time. Hubs stared at the big monitor and said to the doctor, “Are you making it move, or is it moving by itself?” Oh, it’s moving by itself, Husband! So much so that the doctor had to jostle and shake my belly to get Bagel to cooperate for the camera. Gosh darnit it was cute, though. Bagel kept looking like he/she was all cozy and then would get jostled by the doctor, and at one point, Bagel turned the exact opposite way, and lay on his side with his back/butt facing the screen in a fetal “fuck you, let me sleep for another few minutes!” pose. I love Bagel. I will say, the doc did attempt to do a between the legs butt shot porno camera angle on Bagel to see if Bagel is a He-Bagel or or a She Bagel…Bagel was not into his/her porno shoot, and of course wiggled a lot, so it was very hard to see anything,. HOWEVER doc said she saw caught a very quick glimpse of a marker that, if she were a betting woman, would put very favorable odds on one gender or the other. I will save her prediction for our 20 week scan when it will be revealed definitively…but let’s just say…we have a pretty good inkling about the Bits of Bagel!

  1. Yeah! Great changes. We saw movement on our ultrasound this past week. It was bananas. Also, if you make something delicious please do post the recipe!

  2. Haha, yeah when the ultrasound tech or doctor says they’re pretty sure they know the gender, it almost always means it’s a boy! Unless maybe Bagel is a girl and is strategically placing a finger down there to confuse everyone in the photos… πŸ™‚

    Congrats on ending your horrible job! There is nothing better than a week devoted to haircuts and baking and exercising….

  3. I agree, if the tech says they think they know then it’s usually a boy! But I’m still looking forward to finding out!

    YAY I love saying good-bye to crappy situations! Good bye and good riddance!!!!

  4. I love quitting jobs! I mean, i love the feeling of walking out on your last day. SO LIBERATING! it’s like the last day of school only better πŸ™‚ congrats for on to bigger and better opportunities and so happy to hear Bagel is wiggling and doing great. Let me know how you like the yoga and Sanders DVD (yes her butt will make you want to cry) and thanks for the shout-out!

  5. Congrats on getting out of that job, enjoying this week, and starting your new job!! So many exciting things going on in your life!

    I’ve actually heard that early on the girl marker is easier to see than the boy… whatever Bagel is though, it’s perfect!! πŸ˜‰

  6. Um you sound like the kind of woman who is IN CHARGE of shit!!! Wahoo. Love the 1 week notice, the new job, the kick ass attitude and the idea of crying butt cheeks.

    Bagel sounds so cute. I think she’s a lady bagel.
