Jury Duty

I just received a letter stating that I am a "prospective" juror for the fourth quarter of 2004. Couldn't they have picked me for first quarter? Then I could say that I was pregnant/in labor/caring for a newborn. Bah. It's inevitable that I will have to be on a jury at some point. And why didn't Erich get a letter? Oh and it says please fill out the application and return it to the court within 14 days or we will hold your ass in contempt of court (those are the exact words! I swear!). Anywho, this letter is dated... November 1st. Sweet. At least they sent me an envelope with a stamp on it. Heaven forbid they try to pry 37 cents out of my fist for their jury duty. heh. I'm going to bed.

Wanna cookie?

I posted a picture over at fotolog. I thought I would share. :)

**insert clever title**

Okay so I never mopped the floors like I wanted to. And there is a sink full of dishes at home. I'm at work, and the fact that there are things that need to be done at home is driving me bonkers. I did however get to wash a load of my laundry last night, so I now have clean underwear, which makes me extremely happy! If you knew me, you'd know that I tend to wash Erichs laundry first, mainly because he is seen in public in his clothes. I just come into work and change into scrubs, so why should I look nice? heh. So I have clean underwear. yay!

Jeromy, my friend, is doing ten million times BETTER! Thank goodness. I went and saw him twice yesterday and he was up walking around, talking to me, and laughing. He agrees that I am all belly and very cute still which makes me glad because he is back to old self. They are talking about letting him go him in a couple of days. He'll be off of work at least a month, and when they feel his body is better recovered, they are most likely going to remove his spleen. (Which will put him off even longer.) I promised to keep him company and told him he could start taking me to lunch again. heh. ;) To explain that I'm not an evil wench, we used to have lunch about twice a month. He would pay one time, I would pay the next. Well, I was always so broke that I generally convinced him that it was in fact his turn to pay... every single time. hehe. We always laugh about it now. And we almost always went to Olive Garden to get alfredo dipping sauce for our breadsticks, something we call heartattack in a bowl. :)

I still have a box to mail, emails to return, yada yada yada yada. Today is Must See TV though. Maybe I'll go home early and GET THINGS DONE! Oh and I need like oh $250 dollars to buy some baby stuff that I seem to think I need RIGHT NOW. Like the little snowsuit. And the diaper bag. I'd like to start packing my bag also with stuff everyone keeps telling me not to forget, like hairties, and tooth paste and a toothbrush. I think I may go to the dentist office and ask if I can have a toothbrush to pack in my bag. :) I'm sure they'd give me one too. Oh and I must must must remember to pack Erichs swim trunks. (So if I decide to labor in the shower or tub he can be there with me and help me stand and such.) So hey why don't you guys help me out. In the comments, leave me notes telling me things that I should remember to take or things you forgot and wish you had, yada yada yada. If you'd do that I'd love you all more then I already do.

Dangit I have to go back to work...

The laundry is started, the floors upstairs have been swept. I need to mop the master bedroom but I'll do that when I mop all the floors downstairs. I can't do that currently because I'm having ctx and it's raining outside. ( I like to put the dogs outside when I mop so they don't track.) I'm getting hungry so I should eat something. Really all I have left to do is the mopping. Oh! And I finished washing diapers so they are ready to go! I changed the password on fotolog so that Erich could post a picture from the hospital whenever she decides to arrive. :) Now I just have to create a user account on my blog for Erich so he can post "progress and news" from the hospital. I'm feeling ready for this baby. I am missing a few things. I'd like some liners for the diapers. I need the boppy. And I need to buy a snowsuit, but I'll buy that this weekend. The u/s is on Monday so maybe I'll just do it on Monday after the u/s. I am hoping my mom would want to shop after the u/s and buy us some things. :) I can wish, right? Erich is done with school, his finals are on Friday, so he gets to come to the u/s! I'm excited and I think he is too. The last u/s he saw (besides the taped one at 20 weeks) was at 7 weeks! So I'm pretty sure he'll think it's cool. Just about 7 weeks left. yay!


I posted a picture for you viewing pleasure. You can compare this picture to one taken a while back on August 6. I'm home today from work so I'll try to post again later. I've got more laundry to do and floors to mop, dishes to wash, the list never nnds it seems. First I'm going to try my hand at Monopoly Tycoon on the computer. I can't seem to beat the current level I'm on (to be worth $40,000 first) and it's seriously driving me mad.


No don't panic, I'm not going to stop writing. I would have updated yesterday, but I helped a friend type a paper over my lunchtime. Then after work I was feeling a bit bummed and blogger was apparently feeling stupidly slow so I gave up. One of my greatest friends in the world is very very very sick. Apparently they called in his family Friday night thinking that he wouldn't make it to see Saturday morning. He is such a bubbly upbeat person when he isn't sick that seeing him like this and knowing full well that there is a great chance that he could die is practically ripping my heart out. To think that I may never see the bubbly Jeromy that used to want to date me or tease me or hang out, it hurts. He's such a good guy, and hasn't really had time to live his life. He's young, under thirty. He works with me at the hospital but on a different floor. It's hard to get up to see him when he was at work and it makes me mad at myself right now for not going and seeing him more when I really could have. He is in the hospital where we work so at least I'll be able to visit him everyday and check in on him. I had to call my cousin last night who also worked with him years ago, at the same place I met him, to tell him that he is really sick. I figured she should know that before I had to call her and tell her that he died. Maybe he will get better. I'm praying that he is. I lit a candle for him. I feel so helpless. I want him to see my baby. I want him to hold her before he goes. It dawned on me last night that they could be the two passing links in my life. He could die at the time that my baby is born. One person leaves and and another one comes. I'm sorry I can't type anymore.

I know!

I know I should have posted on Saturday but time got away from me. Sunday blogger was being a booger. Right now I'm headed to work, but I'll plan to post on my lunch break. :) I promise!
