Random Thoughts Friday

I'm feeling lazy today so I'm going with (lazy) bullet points.

- On my way to work this morning, I saw a really cute little puppy...and then I saw some kid (probably it's owner) pick it up by it's back (near it's hind quarters) with one hand. This has been making me sad all day. There were two police officers nearby and I saw one of them say something to the kid so I'm hoping they told him that's not how you pick up dogs.

- The first time I went into the bathroom at work this morning, there was one ladies shoe on top of the tampon dispenser. There was only one other woman in the bathroom and she had both of her shoes on. When I went back to the bathroom a while later the shoe was gone.

- Speaking of the woman in the bathroom with both shoes on, while I was washing my hands she was looking at herself in the big full length mirror, fixing her hair or whatever. As I started to leave the bathroom, I saw she moved and was now looking at herself in the other mirror right across from the big mirror. Why did she have to use 2 different mirrors? I don't think one mirror is any different from the other.

- I think my legs change shape from day to day. Some days I have "normal" legs, as my husband says, and other days my legs look more bloated. Today is not a "normal" leg day.

- Even though my job is basically to assist someone, I don't like when I am referred to as an "assistant". The word "assistant" is not actually part of my job title but it is the word that most accurately describes what I do. I still don't like it. Maybe I'm just looking for any little thing to complain about when it comes to my job since I am anxious for my maternity leave to begin.

- Another thing that makes me anxious for maternity leave to begin, other than meeting this baby of mine? Since practically everyone I work with 23, single and fresh out of college, every Friday (and sometimes Wednesdays and Thursdays) the conversations I overhear go something like this:

"What are you doing tonight/this weekend?" "Drinking my face off at some douchey bar"

And every Monday the conversation goes something like this:

"What did you do this weekend?" "Got so wasted".

Ugh. I'm over it. If I snap tell them all to grow up, can I blame it on my hormones?

Happy Friday everyone! Have a great weekend.

You are welcome to blame ANYTHING on hormones!!
Ah, they're too busy looking in 2 mirrors and losing their shoes...

I feel you on the assistant bit, I had my own thing about that when I was in that position. Sadly my legs no longer have good and bad days...and my nickname used to be Legs. Sigh.

I have to admit that I have probably done the two mirror thing. Today when I was trying on dresses I looked in like four different mirrors in the dressing room(s). Meanwhile, they were all full length with the same lighting. What's the difference, you ask? I don't know, but I couldn't help myself.

Came across an interesting article, on the topic of baby names:

Just in case you were thinking about naming the baby Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii.

We have no crib, no stroller, and no carseat. Ha! I was going to order the crib yesterday but they wanted effing $60 for shipping. Um, no. So I guess I'l have to suck it up and go in person? What kind of stroller did you get? I'm obsessing about what to get or whether to even get one at all. Also, nursing stuff? I have no clue about any of that. Also, I'm freaking out about how to manage the nursing/going back to work after 9 weeks. NO CLUE. My sisters are no help because none of them had to work with babies, ever.
