I Ramble On

This past week has been a really hard one. I'm so glad it's over.

Crazy Ass Boss Lady was in rare form this week. See, it's almost go time for the holiday season rush. And when you operate a mall, not just a store, the pressure can be a bit much. CABL is a Marketing Director. She is responsible for making the entire mall an attractive place to shop and bring your family. . . and she sucks at her job. I'm going to leave it at that and not proceed to write five paragraphs on the topic of her suckage. Just know that she blows and tends to take her frustrations out on others. It's fun.

But the week from hell is over! Next week looks to be equally stressful as our seasonal staff starts their training and I'm hosting our staff holiday meeting on Thursday. Somewhere between all of that, working till 9 every night, and organizing a 500 piece mailer I have my next prenatal appointment. Almost 6 months! Only 3 and 1/2 more months to go!

On the topic of baby - we picked up some more Craigslist stuff tonight. A snowsuit and a few other clothing items that are super cute for pretty darn cheap. Plus the woman we got the stuff from lives 3 blocks away from our favorite ice cream place, so YAY for an excuse to get ice cream!

Tomorrow Morgan's relatives that helped us move his mother into her new apartment are coming over for a November BBQ. Burgers, deviled eggs, chips, fruit, cake, etc. It's the least we can do to thank them for their time and efforts. Hopefully it goes well!


  1. I hope you survive the stressful season with sanity, and health, intact, love.

  2. Aud - thanks! I'm sure all will end well, it always does.

    Elaine - we have names, just not one we can agree on. :). I like Simon. He is okay with it, but would rather it be Arthur or Samuel. At least he is giving up on names like Montgomery. For now he is going thru civil war generals, presidents, and the bible for inspiration. Long way to go till we reach a decision.

  3. This is my favorite baby name website if you're interested.

  4. Haha! I love Nymbler! I've been stumbling thru it for months throwing names out at the husband. It's a great site.
